Screen door closer?

I have a question about a screen door closer. Actually I'm looking to build some pneumatic props as outlined by Steve Hickman at Terror Syndicate. The majority of his home made prop designs call for storm door closers. I'm not sure if I'm going to go the route he details or just buy the air cylinders.

The question I have is what is the standard stroke of a storm door closer? And is there a particular bore size I should be look for if I decide to buy the air cylinders as opposed to modifying storm door closers? Thanks.

Well that is what I had planned on doing, purchasing my air cylinders, as long as the price is right. But what is the standard throw of a storm door closer?

I just measured my front storm door and it appears to have a bout a 6" throw when the storm door is extended open all the way. Does that sound about right for anyone who uses storm door closers in props?
