Here it is, MI-NI-MI, i named it that because it is about 1\2 the size of a nitefinder, the ranges are about 20,25 feet, it is made out of pvc, the orange thing at the back is to keep the spring in, it is art of a mavericks air restrictor, i got the spring, trigger, and plunger from a dollar store ball shooter.

here it is:

Blasphemy. I think you need to throw yourself against a wall, drive to store and buy yourself a brain.

If you can, put the gun next to a NF and take a picture. It will show us the exact size.

Great homemade.

Nice work, and innovative as far as the salvaging and use of scrap parts goes. I would assume that the gun has a relatively weak spring and catch, since it was scrapped from dollar-store garbage. However, you could use this as the basis for designing more effective guns of your own, and gain more respect in the homemaker community.

If you want an amazingly powerful plunger mechanism, then just rip the one way valve off the front of a basketball pump. After that, then take off the back of it, and place a spring on the inside. Next, put the back part on again and use it for whatever you can think of. The one that I experimented with had such a good seal, that you could block the air from coming out, and the handle would not move at all, even though there was a stock expand a blast spring trying to push it forwards.
If this post makes no sense due to a lack of pictures, or horrible use of commas, just tell me.

Didnt get a thing you just said.

anyway, here is a picture of it compared to a nitefinder.

It is just bigger than the nitefinders spring.

Thanks, can I have some more feedback?

Maybe. But you have tiny pictures and no details on how it was made, how it works, or how others could make one for themselves so I don't really have anything I can add besides a "good job". And I try to avoid posts like that. Oops, I just made one.

Wow, that thing is really tiny. How does it feel in your hand? Is the trigger akward to pull? Is the handle uncomfortable and small like on the AT2K?
It also looks as though your trigger is very far forward. How long is your plunger stroke?

Well, since I have like the smallest hands, it is just perfect for me.

I also replaced the trigger, it snapped, i replaced it with some mechano pieces, and used a screw to hold the plunger, and a bigger screw to extend the trigger.

I think this would be good as a concealed last resort, but not as a sidearm or god forbid a primary.

Wasn't sure if this merits its own topic, but OK. (If so, one of the admins can just move it. Or you can just tell me, and I'll move it myself)
Here is the plunger design I was trying to describe two days ago:
Get a small crappy little pump like this:
Posted Image
Rip the check valve off of the front of it, and put a spring on the inside after taking the back part off.
Posted Image
After that, put it back together and use it for whatever you want. The seal between the punger and the tube is really good. I don't know what to do with mine, but I'm sure you people could come up with something.
