how to get more than 1 shot (homemade PCP ) Answered

i think any 1 who has made a basic PCP rifle is sick and tired of pumping up their rifles ea shot... or at least i have :). I can't come up with a way to solve this problem without attaching my rifle to an air compressor. But the other day I was brain storming and I came up with an idea, what if we had 2 tanks, which were connected via a thin pipe so it takes a fairly long time for them both to arrive at the same air pressure.(refer to picture), yeah so dose any 1 have an constructive criticism to dish out?

try two tanks, one large and one small, and two valves. fill the larger tank and open the first valve to pressurize the tank. close this valve and open the other to fire.

Man, that's what I thought when I read the title. I was thinking Angel Dust is dangerous enough without trying to cook up a batch at home!

Yep, when I think PCP, I think horse-tranquilizers, showboats, and needle fever. I like airguns, and would like to build an air cannon, but "PCP" means BAD drugs to anybody over 35 or so (I don't think the kids these days still do angel dust, thank goodness!).

PCP, i found out, stands for many things. The meaning of the word which i intended to use was pre charged pneumatic.

I don't see any advantage to this, unless the trigger opens the valve for too long and you're getting a lot of wastage? A better trigger is the best solution, but in the absence of one this would help conserve gas. Although you'd slow your effective fire rate. L

I would replace the thin pipe with another valve. Charge the small tank with a blast from the large, close the valve, then fire the projectile by opening the trigger-valve.
