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.

I've got one screen door cylinder prop (haunted clock) and I built everything out of foam so it wouldn't take much psi to open it...I've always adjusted the psi to the very minimum to open it...That being said, my brother in law gave me 4- 3 or 4 inch stroke cylinders last year so I'll be replacing the one in the clock plus building a few more props this year hopefully....ZR
