Mr.Russ Sniper**UPDATE**

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Russ » Sat Aug 18, 2007 10:05 pm

Alright. I admit. It is just a BIT ghetto.. but its amazing fun.

I build a temp version of this gun about a week or 2 ago. It was a 1.25L bottle with a blowgun in the bottom and a tyre valve in the lid. i just attatched the barrel to the blowgun and thats how i shot it.

It worked fine, but then I decided i would make a newer version of it, and make it easier to hold and shoot.


I took my brass corner piece off my inline, and put it in the end of the bottle. Screwed the blowgun into that. I also sleeved the barrel with 3/4" electrical conduit and put a coupler on the end. I then tested this, and it worked fine so I decided to replace the bottle and the lid, because the lid was under stress from the pressure. I wrapped the bottle neatly in electrical tape for a little bit more strength. I know it isnt much but it is all i needed.

I am impressed with the power of this gun, I get about 3-5 shots that will shoot through a newspaper, and about 5 shots after that which are still powerful. Then I also get more shots, but they decrease in power rapidly when the tank is nearly empty.

My main ammo for this gun is lead split sinkers wrapped in tape for a tight fit. I also have one ball bearing that fits perfectly(others are to big) and i shoot that some times. I also shoot airsoft bbs wrapped in tape sometimes.
I have also made darts out of rivets.

If im using it in an airsoft skirmish i would use airsoft bbs wrapped in tape, not just airsoft bb's by themself. The reason for this is when i shoot them at things they split in half because of the pressure.

Okay. I think have done enough explaining for now, ill post some pictures.
There might be a video later today.. depends on how im feelin.

*****UPDATE*****

I went out to bunnings, and bought a new blowgun because i snapped the old one, and i also bought pressure pipe and caps. I put this gun together yesterday and ive only taken it up to 135psi. I dont think my priming/gluing is neat, but hey. its my very first time.

GAUGE AT 120PSI:

I like it. I made a BB gun that I nevery bothered to post because all it was a blowgun and a 6mm barrel which I hooked up to my compressor to test it out. It shot through both sides of a cardboard box! I have got to get me one of those pistol grip blowguns soon so I can make a better BB gun. Do you use the lump on top of the blowgun as rear sight?

Yea the cheap ghetto-ish guns are always the most fun. You should put a pressure gauge or maybe even a scope where you clogged the blowgun with bluetac.

shud b rite: i would put a scope there but we cant buy them here.. i want any easy way to make one that looks kind of real too.

Redcoat: I havent done a distance test because i lose sight of the BB's. It is accurate with one of my darts to about 10+ metres(all i have tested it at, super accurate at this distance) and that is all i need for what im using it for.

Bassmaster: I would paint it, except i dont want to paint the handle. The chamber is already black and leaving the barrel how it is.. nice and smoooooth :)

well. i bought some pressure pipe and caps, for my chamber, and a new blowgun because i snapped the threads on the other one. i have a problem though. If i screwed the blowgun straight into the pipe, like through the end cap too, the chamber would be pointing on a 45 degree angle UPWARDS. i want this to change, so it is parallel with the barrel. you can see t his in the pictures(what i mean not parallel with the barrel)


If you have any suggestions, i am all ears.
