Camo Cloud

Unread postAuthor: Carlman » Mon Mar 24, 2008 7:06 am

Hey guys,

Thought i'd dip my feet in the bb gun section of the spudding community.

And this is what i came up with:

I use beads for ammo from crazy's. they measure about 5mm and the brass tube i have has an internal diameter of about 5.5 so they fit rather well.

My poly pipe end cap has a rubber gasket in there so no thread seal tape is needed!

I will have damage up soon, even at 40psi this rips through cans, havnt had a chance to fully test it yet at higher pressures.

comment and criticize

Thats a nice looking gun. I like the ingenious use of camo cloth and electrical tape. 8)

Yeah i am with Watto on this one Carl. I dont know why you didnt use something a little more inconsipicous as a tie down for the camo.

But it still looks like its in for some serius fun and i am sure it will be used for some time to come.

Also carl what have you put around your barrel (liek what size is it?)

But i am still loving it aswell as knowing it can go through the West Aus Paper at 110 psi in a 2 second burst. :D:D:D

Great work carl hope to see more, mainly your golfball gun.

Spherical projectiles tend to curve alot at long ranges. You don't neccessaraly need hop-up, just some sort of spin.

yea the hole might have something to do with it, i was just looking for an answer.

so a hop up would stop the curve?

Most likely would. It keeps the bb's from spinning randomly from the imperfections in the barrel that they hit. In other words, it forces the bb's to have a uniform spin direction. In this case, backspin, which is nice because it keeps the bb's going on a level flight path. Its how I got mine to quit fussing...
