Thats quite interesting. Its a nice concept.
What are the ranges you are getting?
If there good ranges you could make a rifle, I think that would be cool.

i havnt had a chance to test it out yet cuz i made it half an hour ago but i have high hopes for it. the trigger is a little small and that makes it a little wierd to hold but otherwise it fits in my hand pretty well

Please fix your grammar.

Anyway, it looks good, and I'm curious as to what the ranges are. If you can get some brass or some good PVC, you might want to use that as the barrel instead of copper. Copper doesn't work very well...

Probably dead by now, or something.

My experience with those says that the flow is atrocious, but that might not matter so much with a nerf gun. I look forward to range testing.

... You mean you posted a thread about a gun you know nothing about and whipped it together in half an hour??


First part: LAME.
Second part: Maybe I should build one of these... :D


Looks awesome... Simple, and you already have suggestions for modifications! :wacko:

I like how you incorporated C02 with a small pistol type gun (I know its been done before but I like it), also I like its simple look, I also look foward to range testing.

the only bad thing about it so far is that the handle isnt tilted. it wouldve been easier to hold if it were.

I'd like to add, that when I've delt with CO2, it tends to be inneficient directly out of the cartridge (the cold temperature decreases the available pressure). That's why I THINK (I'm not sure) most paintball guns have an expansion chamber between the barrel, tank, and trigger; to allow the compressed air to warm up, even slightly to give more efficient pressures. But I could be wrong about this. What I'm saying, is that if the flow is horrible, or you find yourself using a lot of CO2 per shot, try creating an expansion chamber with another valve as a trigger. When I turned a Brass Eagle Ghost (I think it was called that) into a Nerf gun (inspired by Yakkman), I remember getting about 30 shots per cartridge, each shot going about 90 feet on the average, and most of my stefans getting blown apart from the excess force. So that demonstrates the potential of a CO2 powered gun...

Good luck, and brass all the way!

Well...
i put some co2 in the thing, and then a stefan. Surprise surprise... the stefan didnt fit. The barrel was too big. I found some smaller black pvc in my basement that fits some stefans a friend made me. Pics to be posted later with ranges.
