First attempt at a BBMG. LEXAN Vortex block, +VIDEO

Unread postAuthor: jhalek90 » Mon Dec 07, 2009 5:33 pm

I was looking around in my shop, and decided that i had all the parts to build a vortex block BBMG. I was right. :lol:

Here is the product of about 15 minuets of pvc work.... and about 1hr of lexan work,

SPECS:

Full hole lexan vortex block
6mm aluminum barrel, 12 in long... i think? ( i need a longer one.)
pvc chamber soon to be upgraded to c02 system.

Total cost, under 10 bucks... i had to buy the barrel, as well as a single pvc fitting.

PIC:

VIDEO:
60 psi unregulated test shots

EDIT: fixed spelling errors....
Side note: I officially own my own house now!!! Bring on the boom!

Looks good. I like the setup.
Some paint would finish the job.

Could you show us a picture of the vortex block?

Thanks, for the comment (vortex block pics as soon as i take it apart.)

Actually.... i have a c02 tank.... and fits into 2'' pvc... so i am going to totally redo the bottom half of the gun, also, i need a new blowgun mine leaks at anything over 70 psi.

Any one know of a cheapo paintball c02 to npt regulator????

Once i get all that done.... it will be bondo-d and then painted! WOOT.

BBMGs are rather fun.

Finaly bought one.

I went with a HPA setup.

I got a 3000psi bottle, a reg, and all the extras to go down to 1/8'' NPT fittings for about $150

Yay christmas bonus!!! :P

Don't forget a safety popoff!
If the reg fails (or you do something stupid) it will save your life.
