Try a home improvement or hardware store. Check out the PVC pipe section and build anything you'd like to. Every aspect of the water gun is at your command and they also typically come out cheaper. Of course, there's those who will tell you that homemade water guns are hard to make, but they've usu...

actually you could build such a contraption out of your average household PVC pipe. i think some can handle up to 400 psi. although if the trigger valve were to be in a handle, you would have to seal the tubing going from the PC's to the gun pretty tightly. anyways, there's no reason not to try it,...

my 1500 recoils like crazy on 10x. :cps1500:

anyways, i voted to try and get the 4100. older CPs blasters are usually pretty reliable and strong if you take care of them.
