Re: CPS 1500 - defect or normal behaviour?

Dunno, but you could probably just tape or glue over it.

That's why you have it sneak up on your opponent.

Re: Concept Watergun using 4500psi HPA tank to supply pressure

In that case, just go with our original suggestions (minus the ball valve suggestion), and turn up the PSI when in water fights. I don't know how to figure out the answer to your last question. Someone else might be able to, but if they don't, you may just have to do some testing. If you do intend t...

Re: Concept Watergun using 4500psi HPA tank to supply pressure

Python 2 can't be automatically activated though. But honestly, a modified Thunderstorm attached to a motion sensor would probably do the trick should you give up on this idea.

Re: Concept Watergun using 4500psi HPA tank to supply pressure

If you're not using this for water fights, then there are a lot of things you don't have to worry about. A solenoid will definitely be fine for your purposes, but try to put it as close to the nozzle as possible. Somewhere around 45 psi should be fine, and it doesn't really matter that much if you u...

Re: Elbows and hoses

I haven't actually done this, so I don't know. Perhaps a very short piece of hose with a plug on the end, stuffed with epoxy putty and clamped in the place of the bladder?

It's up to you.

Re: Elbows and hoses

Not sure if you already started, but my idea is to simply open the second bladder nozzle permanently, remove the second bladder and seal it off, colossus/replace the main bladder, and put a laminator in front of the burst nozzle. Not sure if flow from the first bladder to the second is good enough f...

Re: Concept Watergun using 4500psi HPA tank to supply pressure

I've wanted to build a similar homemade for a long time. Using a paintball canister is a pretty neat idea. I'm not sure about using a solenoid valve for the trigger valve. It may reduce flow, and with the way you have it set up, water will dribble out the end of the gun, causing lag when you fire. Y...

I would wait for a better deal on a small CPS. But then again, with summer approaching, you might not find as many good deals.

Re: HELP WITH IDEA

The second idea sounds more plausible. Here's an idea based on it: 1. Get a box with a lid that fits tightly. 2. Fill up a water balloon. For an even bigger mess, fill a regular balloon with water. Do not tie the balloon. 3. Put the end of the balloon over the edge of the box, and close the lid over...

Re: Trying to find a specific blaster......

That definitely sounds like a Speedloader. I own a few, they're pretty great. Several 3000s are actually available on Ebay right now, and for cheap. And if you buy three, you get free shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Speed-Loader-Double-Cross-Watergun-3000-/141107580776?pt=Outdoor_Toys_Structures_U...

I'm guessing the Vindicator would be the best, although I've never used one. Out of what I've used, I think the AP Gorgon is best.

Re: Fire extinguisher blaster?

I've made homemades of similar design and they work pretty well. However, you may have a difficult time keeping it connected to a hose with just a ball valve. I put a check valve on my homemades for hose intake. Adding a schrader valve would allow you to pre-charge it. Also, if you don't make a dip ...
