Time for my first real contribution to the NIC. This is a "because I can" integration. I also think it looks cool.

It's an AT4K integrated into the bottom of a crutch. Here are some more pictures.

A view down the barrel, which is 17/32 brass nested in CH40 PVC pipe.

The stock has two peices of CH80 CPVC for ammo holders shoved in the ends of the pipes.

Here's a size comparison with my BBB.

Wow I like it. Is it comfortable? And how about the ranges. I might try this.

Nevermind. How long is the shaft you put the barrel in? It looked pretty long at first glance, but on second thought, it looks like a pretty small crutch.

But why are you using a 4k tank?

It is comfortable enough to use, but the ranges arn't all that good. There is a metal bar inside of it that stopped me from puting in one long peice of PVC.

If I could figure out a way to get that bar out of there I could get much higher ranges out of this thing. If anyone has any ideas please post them.


I like the creativity, but that is a friggin TON of deadspace between the tank and barrel.

Yeah I know. The barrel is actually lined up like this

but there is a little bar in there that I can't get out.
See the 2nd post for a pic of the bar.

I would cut right through that metal bar with a dremel. That would work.

I have to admit that I forgot that the aluminum crutches made for a great chassis. I do remember at one time, someone at spudfiles made a nice pneumatic spud gun there using this concept.

Overall it looks really nice, I like it.

I don't have a dremmel. The only one's I have seen cost like 40$. I don't have that kind of cash right now. Do you know of a store I could check to see if they have a good one for like 20$? I've only checked Ace and Home Depot, but I only checked the web site of Home Depot.

Get the Target brand one. It's pretty good. Just get new attachments, cause the one they give you aren't the best
