A safety valve for pneumatic installation that says 1.8K, how many bar or psi is it? It is a rupture disc of a pressure regulator and I do not understand when it is 1.8K ...
kilopascal ? Kpa. 1 Kpa = 0.01 Bar, 0.145 Psi. But 1.8K would be so low :shock:

In my experience it amplifies the noise significantly for the shooter too.
Yes, I've done that by mistake while making a dummy silencer for looks, and made a loudifier by mistake, a piece of 1" PVC pipe works really good.

Re: Semiauto Nerf Rival with no moving parts.

Semiauto Nerf Rival with no moving parts.
