Topics I've Started

First Homemade In A Long Time

04 August 2007 - 08:59 PM

Ok I have not been around much lately, but a couple weeks ago I had this craving to build a new gun. First Built a prototype with spare parts, and after tweaking it a little bit i got this:

the gun

The main tank, at the bottom, is 2" pvc with an endcap with a bike tire valve at one end and a 2" to 3/4" reducer at the other. After that there is a 3/4 to 1/2 reducing elbow. the rest is 1/2.

First you pump the main tank (at the bottom) using a standard bike pump. I like to go up to 40ish psi. Once the main tank is filled you open and close the first ball valve, letting the pressure from the main tank into the firing tank. then point the barrel down ,shake ( it has a 4 shot inline clip, thanks to frost) and then open the second ball valve. I can squeeze off maybe 15 shots on one tank before i have to pump it up again. the first couple of shots go about 120'ish then it goes down to 105'ish until the last two or three. it leaves a pretty good welt from up close. so what do you guys think?

A Question For My New Homeade

09 August 2006 - 09:20 PM

Ok my idea was to basicly make a big snap with multiple barrels. what I wanted to know is if I was to put say three or four barrels on it for a shot gun like effect would i lose alot of range. If this will decrease the range greatly, though it is not a big deal, how could I help solve this problem. If this has all ready been done any information is of great help to me.
