It looks good, but the thing is that the fittings are NSF-DWV. So that means they are not pressure rated, so I would not go above 50psi with it.

And also with the valves, you could make a piston valve or have 2 modded sprinkler valves, for ease of operation and performance.

It does look cool.

you really have to watch the pressure ratings, I don't think 4 inch pipe can handle semi-high pressures.

4'' Sch40 PVC can handle 220psi at 73*F. That is the working pressure, it hold more than that, but it is much lower because of safety reasons.

Looks good man. Only thing I would recommend is to put something on the handle of the ball valve to make it easier to turn (see pics below), however, in making it larger, make sure to reinforce it so that the handle doesn't break off. Lastly, one question, how do u adjust your trajectory?

from our time with our howitzer the trees work the best. Because even a speck of scenario paint (howitzers, Mines, booby traps) counts as a kill a paint balloon hitting a branch makes it a shower of paint. If you are lucky enough to hit one everyone below it will most likely be out.

we just fill three small water ballons with venom mix paint. That way they land in a bigger area and they don't weigh enough to really hurt somebody. I have seen a few guys use 1 1/2lb water balloons and I wouldn't want to be on the recieving end. But the little 1/3lb ones have hit me at 50 feet and its more like a gloved punch from a weak kid. Not near enough to knock a mask off or break a lense.

Well, it looks interesting, though, If I were going to have a howitzer or some type of rolling field artillery, Id want it bigger... Could you post dimensions, maybe it just looks smaller than it really is.
