I originally just posted general information about this gun, But I decided to turn it into a write up.
Here is the official write up.
- 1in.PVC (SCH 40)
- 1/2in. PVC (SCH 40)
- 1/2in PVC (SCH 20)
- 1/2in. CPVC
- Dowel Rod*
- 1/2in. CPVC T Coupler
- 1/2in. PVC x-coupler
- 1in. PVC end cap
- 1/2in. PVC end cap
Cut the 1in. PVC to about 9 1/2 in.
Drill a hole through the 1in. PVC end cap big enough for the dowel rod to fit through but not the spring.
The Plunger is a stick of 1/2in. SCH 40 PVC with a 1/2in. PVC endcap on it. The endcap is sanded down untill it fits in 1in. PVC. Then you sand a groove in the endcap for an o-ring.
Attach the dowel rod to a 1/in PVC or CPVC T-coupler.
Slide the 1in. PVC end cap over the the dowel then slide the spring over it.
Attach the plunger to the end of the dowel.
My plunger is attached by drilling a hole through the plunger rod and dowel, then sliding a pin through.
The barrel is somewhat tricky, wrapa piece of 1/2in. CPVC in electrical tape until it is airtight inside 1/2in. SCH 20 PVC. Then. wrap the the piece of 1/in. SCH 20 PVC in electrical tape until it fits airtight in the 1in PVC shell. Then slide it into the shell until the 1/2in. SCH 20 PVC is flush with the end of the 1in. Shell.
Cut off the top of the x-coupler, (this is where the barrel sticks out). Fasten the opposite end to the 1in.PVC with hot glue.
Now attach a PVC handle to one of the couplers.
This handle is two pieces of 1/2in. PVC cut at an angle to fit onto the gun. They are attached by two bolts, and fastened to the gun with Liquid Nails and E-Tape.
The trigger is just a basic clothespin trigger, the writeup for that can be found Here
