My Crazy Ideas Post

Pump action, spring gun.
Well anyway, the first thing i detirmined with this is that i'm not going to cut any grooves. I hate cutting grooves, so it's going to end up looking a little funny. What i decided for pipe lengths is: 1/2" Low PSI PVC pump-grip sliding on 1/2" CPVC pipe. At the end of the grip will be a T-piece and a 90 degree bend. Attached to the bend, facing towards the handle would be a piece of pipe. The actual air-chamber part would be 1" CPVC. At one end would be a 1" - 1/2" CPVC reducer, at the other end, the same. The end facing towards the handle would have the ridge that holds the pipe in place sanded down. This would allow the 1/2" CPVC, which would function as the piece that holds the O-ring and has the catch part at the end, to slide freely. At one end of the moving 1/2" CPVC, there would be a hole, allowing for the catch. Interesting idea for a catch: Toggle bolt on a normal bolt, with the normal bolt attached to a mounting T. When you pull down on the mounting T, it pulls the bolt down, thus pulling the toggle bolt down as well.
Spring could be either compression or tension, but as of now i lean towards tension, because compression springs are a tad harder to find. However, if i get a chance to go to one of the more local hardware stores, i might pick up a decent compression spring.
Comments, questions, concerns, suggestions?

I built something...that works! Not too well, it shoots about 40 feet, but i could get it up to 60.
It uses compression springs. What it is is a short piece of 1" CPVC with couplers at each end. At one end is the barrel, which is 1/2". At the other, is a 1" to 1/2" reducer, sanded down to allow 1/2" CPVC to slide through. The next piece is a piece of 1/2" CPVC, a little longer than the 1" CPVC section. At one end is a 1/2" coupler, which holds the two compression springs back. Also, attached to the coupler is a 5/8" OD rubber gasket. Although there is no trigger, it works for now, but the springs are so stiff, its hard to shoot without a trigger, which i plan to add. I was really suprised that it shot 40 feet, but it does. Its slightly bigger than a AT2K.

If a topic gets buried under the 20 active threads listed at the front of the page, it is still going to be read or discussed by people, as long as people have something to say.
I didn't yell at tex for double-posting. Usually, I don't yell at people unless they really bother me. I only made a polite request for him to use the edit button.

The irony will NOT end! It just keeps coming back in the words of the unwary like some horrible strain of VD that cannot be seen by those with it.

I don't get why some people have trouble spelling my username. It's right in front of you when you post. Oh well....

Oroku_Saki was following a strict interpretation of the rules, and was reasonably friendly about it so don't go off on him. Now we all understand that sometimes double posting is fine.
shyboi, you're getting too angry about this whole online thing. Why don't you take some time off, see the countryside. Your excitability will get you in hot water here so learn to cool your heels and just take things in stride.
The rest of us will attempt to do the same...

The flames will make you strong.
It's just that, since I'm a newb and don't always post right, I get yelled at for something perfectly fine and don't get a chance to fix my mistakes.
