Vortex Cap Airsoft Machine Gun

Unread postAuthor: clemsonguy1125 » Mon Oct 12, 2009 4:37 pm

Well heres a vortex cap BBMG I threw together a couple weeks ago. It has a mag that probably holds around 200 bbs. Not sure about the fps but it can shoot completly through a coke can. I can empty a mag in under 6 seconds.

Let me guess, the big piece of PVC pipe that the gun is strapped to is the on-board precharged air source. Is there any reason why the vortex cap and barrel are inside of a soda bottle?

My suggestions are to do away with the soda bottle and if you are serious about this gun, get a CO2 source or a more compact compressed air source such as a fire extinguisher which will have the same volume yet take up less space because of the increased cylinder diameter.

Other than that if it works then have fun with it!

Seems okay.
I recommend a few upgrades:
-PVC instead of the bottle. Looks MUCH cleaner and is sturdier and safer too.
-Move the vortex cap and mag back, so that you can have a longer barrel.

Yep pretty much, its a 5 foot length of 2 inch PVC and the bottles just there to hold the vortex cap. I probably will go to the fire extinguisher. I just didn't have on laying around.Also I probably will replace the bottle with PVC. Any ideas of were to find a cheap fire extinguisher.
