Default APWG Project, work in progress...

Hi, i'm very happy to be a SS Central member, my name is Livio and i live in Italy.
Why i was encouraged to enroll is this; i'm a vintage super soaker collector and i'm building a homemade cps water gun.
APWG is the name (Auto Pump Water Gun) becouse this water gun has a auto pump system by electric water pump.
This project is started some month ag˛ and now is almost done. I have many pics but meantime i can see you the firts pics (but is not a final project).
One of the reason that i decide to write here is the availability of LRT becouse in Italy i can't follow it. When i have read some forum thread i understand where i can buy but unfortunately McMaster don't ship me in Italy and my project is stopped.
I have write many emails to mcmaster but i don't have receved nobody replay.
I'm desperate, i want buy LRT but i haven't helps...
More later i send a new pics of my APWG project that currently work with Super Soaker 600 LRT.
Thank you so much and sorry for my bad english!
Livio

Wow, that looks amazing! Your English is fine

Hopefully one of the American members will be willing to send you some LRT, so you can finish it

Hi, you can see LRT in to a plexiglass in the front and the auto pump in the backplate (opened).
In the rest of the space there are tubes, valves, lipo battery, etc.

Oh, OK. So you are using an electronic trigger, or just the pump? Don't get the lipo wet, it might explode.

Also, you can post answers together, instead of triple posting. Beautiful gun though. Electronic pump, right? Is it loud? Also, what was the shell from?

Sorry for my triple posting. LiPo battery is in a ballon water resistant, i have more years of model (car, helicopter, airplane, crawler,). The pump is elettronic but the trigger is manual.
Pump has more power (4 bar and more...).
What do you mean with "shell from?"

A leaf blower.

It certainly makes it look a lot more professional than just using bare plumbing parts.
