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.
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?

I like it, incredibly ghetto but still has that "look"
VH was awesome!!
C02 Jetpack (CIIJ)
.177 cal. piston rifle
O.I: Nah i dont.. because my barrel a bb slides in with rom on either side it is not accurate at all.. so i just aim, pull the trigger and hope for the best.
your Australian are you not......do mean just little skirmishes with your mates (with homemade stuff)....
love those blowguns...i have my own ....from bunnings
yeah just skirmish with my mates. only a few of them though. the others dont like bb guns and stuff..
F.C my msn is email@example.com
anyone can add me if they want
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.
Airbeds... so many different uses
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.
ebay is the place for you my friend
I'm not allowed to buy anything off the internet
Anyway i fixed it and charged it up to 135psi!
highest pressure i have ever been to. no leaks at all.
THIS GUN IS PERFECT!
