I haven't actually done this, but I think you could make the cylinder out of PVC pipe. Take a shorter amount of the pipe (same diameter) and lubricate the inside. Squeeze hot glue into the pipe until you have the thickness of the piston that you want and let it dry. The hot glue should slide easily out of the pipe when finished drying. Lubricate the inside of the pipe that you're using for the cylinder and when the glue-piston is inserted it should be basically airtight. Attach it to a sprink and viola!

.. it's just a theory I haven't tried it. I'm making one, and I'm debating on whether or nor to have the piston spring powered or have it attached to the string of a crossbow. I think the crossbow would be more powerful but harder to cock.
