these are my first attempts into the nerf homemade guns. followed the plans in the homemade section, and made a matching pistol. both are in paint now, being painted black with orange tipped barrels. the big one will shoot 175 feet at 50psi, and the pistol isnt worth a crap, but it looks cool. i'm open for comments and suggestions, so fire away and nerf on!!!

Nice work.
This was also the gun that got me into nerf and was the first one built. Its easy to build, reliable and easy to mod. Ive converted mine into something more accurate and powerful by using a solonoid. All i do is tap a button and "wosh" 120 psi of air fly's out. (of coarse not good for shooting at people).

Mine with its incredablly simple mod:

That looks pretty neat! Those valves, did they come black, or did you paint them?

Next time you use a ball valve, flip it, so that the lever is on the bottom so all you have to do is turn it with your finger. Either that or just get a better valve.

SKIZ, I'm very curious what your able to do with 120 psi :)

and do you mean solenoid, as in a coil of a wire with a current? If so, what function does that serve?

3) Tomorrow afternoon after school i will get ranges of different projectiles. (.177 slugs/ lemons/ darts/ rocks/ fish sinkers)
4) i will also show you the inside of the solonoid. (i cant explain it)

By solenoid, he means a solenoid valve, which is diaphragm valve with a pilot operated by a solenoid, making it easy to actuate with a button instead of turning a handle.

If you don't have your own FTP capibilities I think http://www.yousendit.com/ is the best alternative.

Skiz, do you use an air compressor to get 120 psi, or how do you do that?
