Here is my loser, not exactly cool or pretty. But it works; with 3-4 pumps it gets about 165ft. flat. It isnt hard to aim and it doesnt jerk when you pull the valve.
I still need to fixt the leaks,paint the couplers gold, and paint the barrel silver.
Tell me what you think and if you have a name for it,tell me.


(P.S. Sorry but the pics were very large so I posted a link and I dont have a program to resize them with.)

(edit) also sorry that the pics take so long loading

Eh? I don't see it. Is the curvy thing at the back a stock?

Yeah, life sucks, but it does guarantee a trip around the sun every 365 days.

Yes, I had to make the stock a little larger, so it could hold a decent air pressure, and what do you mean by "I don't see it"

I don't see the gun inside of a large hunk of intricately woven PVC. I make my own shells for guns, so I have trouble seeing the gun in your, well, gun.

Its my first homemade, and you kind of have to hold it to appreciate it. And it is kind of an extremely simple design, so I dont understand what you mean by "I dont see the gun in it". It would look like some guns if I stuck a scope on it.

Ok let an idiot ask a question here. What exactly is needed in a loser rifle?
Long Barrel? Good Air compacity? What? :huh:

Big tank + Long barrel = loser rifle

The longer your barrel the bigger your tank needs to be.

Or the higher the pressure in the tank. Or the slower the air output.

Ok, to get back on topic a bit more, that thing is very...umm...strange. I like the idea for the pump, though. You used a bike tire floor pump. I see why it takes only four pumps to get 165 feet. The look of the stock resembles more of a buck's rack than a shoulder piece, but when the ranges mentioned are acheived, then looks don't matter. Good job.

Massive stock there.

Warning: Lots of kids seem to take offense to anything in low-range airguns being described as "loser." Mainly because people can't seem to use the word properly, as evident in the title of your topic. If you've managed to make a homemade "skilled military shooter detailed to spot and pick off enemy soldiers from a concealed place," I would suggest you contact DARPA immediately.

Is that big tire pump detachable? I know pressure resistance gets pretty strong with those things.

No, it isnt detatchable,but it works just fine. Also,even though the shoulder piece looks huge, it isnt that big.

I appreciate the dedication it took to complete the photo shoot while your desk was going up in flames.

As already mentioned, it looks a bit cumbersome but you can't argue with the results, good work!
