Dual pistons would have to be mechanically connected, or one would “overtake” the other, no matter how good the manufacturing part-to-part specs.

I can’t speak of nitro piston specifically for airguns, but master units are available for industrial applications. Due to seal considerations, there is a limit, but I don’t know exactly what that limit is. I do know that compressed strut ratings exceed 1,000 pounds. Of course they’re as big as your arm! 

I do hope you have relatives, because by the time you get it built, it’ll take three men and a boy to carry it! While that is an exaggeration, we have to assume your planning on “holding” t in your arms while you pull the trigger?

Oh! Speaking of which… Multi-sear triggers aren’t a problem, but you may have to built your own big enough to do the job. 

Good luck.
