Re: Building my own

I have seen a few places online that sell pressure rated PVC pipes, but the 90-110mm pipe for the PC sell in 5m lengths minimum, and cost around £25-30 and each end cap, reducer etc cost about £10 again, so i'm looking at nearly £90 just for the pressure chambers. I might have to get out the tyre pu...

Re: Building my own

I saw the bit about soda bottles, however I'm not so keen on using them, as if the gun is dropped or knocked in transit, then the bottles could get bent and would then loose their strength. Also, they are so thin, I'm not sure how confident I would feel using them to hold 70+PSI upto 100PSI which I ...

Re: Building my own

Thanks for all the advice everyone. I think I have decided that I'm just going to use air pressure mainly for the ease of getting the equipment needed. I have been thinking I could use the reservoir champers from other guns as pressure chambers, does anyone know if this would work? I have 2 of the s...

Re: Building my own

Thanks for the link, I'll take a look at that. Also, is a CPS system far superior to air pressure, or is there not a lot of difference?

Thanks

Building my own

Well I'm wanting to have a go at building my own gun as the value on my XXp275 isn't working too well anymore, but i don't know where the best place if to buy the supplies. Does anyone know of a shop (online preferably) in the UK that sells the sort of things I would need? The plumbing parts (valves...

Re: repair of my XXP 275

Good news! it works again, just adjusting the cogs a little got it working again, so no one was dry today :D Thanks all for the help, and I hope it doesn't happen again, as I can't move the cogs any further.

Re: repair of my XXP 275

The main problem with the replacment of the ball valve, would be finding one that works, I think I could probably fit it, unless it is much harder than it sounds. As for using my pics, I don't mind, and if you want more, let me know.

Re: repair of my XXP 275

I have tried pushing forward on the trigger handle, and that worked last year a bit, so I moved the cogs to act as if that was being done, and that helped, but has not eliminated the problem. As for the spring, it springs back fine, so I don't think the rust is causing a problem. I have just moved t...

Re: repair of my XXP 275

just checked to see exactly where it was leaking. Turns out that it is leaking where I said, just through the end nozzles. So I think it is the trigger valve. Is it known that these wear after a while? and if so, does that mean there will be replacments avaliable somewhere?

Re: repair of my XXP 275

thanks both, I will try filling it with water today to check where it leaks, I've allready opened it up to see how easy it would be to fix, so now should be able to see exactly where the water is coming out from. I will also take some pictures whilst I've got it open and upload them here.

repair of my XXP 275

Well I've got an XXP 275 Water gun that has stoped working, it was holding the preasure slightly last summer, but isn't at all this summer. I think it is the trigger valve as last year I opened my gun up and moved the cogs a few teeth to close the valve more and that fixed it then, however it seems ...
