That pretty much shows you how to do it, You can purchase cannons and accessories from but they're $300, for that price you might as well buy a commercial air cannon

When making these you need to let the glue and primer set for 24 hours before you air it up. Also the sprinkler vaulves are only rated for 150 psi (i personly wouldnt go over 90 psi), the bigger the expansion chamber the less pressure you need. Unless your gonna operate it with a bike pump i would seriously recommend using a reg and a safty pop vaulve. Last I would recommend only using hpa or some sort of compressed air not co2. When co2 expands it gets cold and that can cause pvc to weaken.
