High pressure pilot valve?

Miniature guns are novelty custom, unique, and sometime downright crude! Common construction materials often include pill bottles or pens. Show us your work!

I need help finding a pilot valve that can handle a high pressure (300+ psi preferably) for a safer version of my recently built mini. I'm having second thoughts about the blowgun (like in my avatar) being able to handle pressure of 400 psi. I'd like to stay away from ball valves for such a small gun because the stiffness would affect accuracy.

Or at 900 psi by the looks of it. Genius design, will definitely have to try this. This is basically a piston valve, isn't it? I can hook the poppet nut side directly to the barrel and the bottom of the tee to a chamber, right?

Worth noting that the type of blowgun you have is usually good for 450 psi, I used one succesfully at that pressure in my micro BBMG.
