Re: CPS in Backpack (not in gun)

Here's a picture of the completed assembly: https://www.dropbox.com/s/um53bzybh2hiv ... 0.jpg?dl=0

Re: CPS in Backpack (not in gun)

I made my QFD and will try to get a picture here. I was going to use the PVC valve like I've seen others use, but then I saw a hose adapter for $7 that was much easier to turn, especially one handed, and decided to use that.

Power Pak Dribble Leak when shooting

I was thinking (WAG) more in the 10-15 pound range, but I suspect your more experienced guess is better than mine. Fortunately I'm 6'3" and ...

CPS in Backpack (not in gun)

I've been thinking about building a water gun and have learned a lot from searching around sscentral.org and now this site. I had an idea for a gun that I haven't seen anywhere else (that I know of). Did I miss something? Is my idea not practical? Here's my idea, I welcome your feedback: The backpac...
