What should my first homemade be? I am new as a member but have been watching for a while and was curious. If possible I would like for it to be simple, straight foreward and not requiring welding or soidering since I don't have the tools required for such things.

I make homemades that are very strait forward and useful, though not everyone thinks so. Search new homemade avenger. It's my best so far, and simple. As I said, not everyone likes them. but they make for great first homemades.

Thanks, I am not used to getting this much help this quickly! Ice, when I put in New Homemade Avenger I don't get anything but this page.

I'll suggest a SNAP, they get decent ranges and are fairly easy to make.

I would like for it to be simple

Now, I have been looking at the FAR and SCAR and those don't fit the above criteria, the SNAP-1 does. Thanks for the SNAP suggestion.

If you're looking at the SNAP, use the mk2 writeup. It includes a lot of improvements to the original design.

Also, spend some time going though the homemade directory. A big part of building homemades is making it work with the parts that you have available...seeing what else has been done will help you become familiar with different styles, and how others have approached problems.

Bad idea. Using a soda bottle is questionable, but weakening the bottle by attaching the airfeed through the side is asking for trouble. Then there's the whole issue of using Gorilla Glue rather than actual PVC cement.

Check out the homemades page for a standard (and safe) ballvalve airgun, if you want to go that route.

Carbon that was just what I was thinking. Thank you all, I have decided I will start on the SNAP series.
