Response to I've examined it, and
Well, can't really credit you with a unique design, if you're not willing to show us exactly what it is you have.
There have been any number of designs to release air from a bottom mounted tank as seen in the definitive Wolff's "Air Gun Batteries"
My first take on a design like yours would that it might include a bell crank to transfer the energy from the rear of the hammer directly to the exhaust valve of the tank. But, there are certainly other ways of accomplishing the same thing. Taking the energy off the front of the hammer, a double bar battery could be used.
Bottom line: the only way of declaring a new battery design is to examine it against those seen in Wolff's book on the subject. If for some reason you don't want to supply pictures of your design, then, get a copy of Air Gun Batteries and make a close study of it. From that, you can then prove the uniqueness of your design by drawing it using the same symbolic characters.
It would be simply lovely to be able to declare that a new, innovative air gun battery --unlike any seen before in history has been invented-- But......
