Compact Vortex bbmg

Unread postAuthor: pneumaticcannons » Fri Jan 20, 2012 9:21 pm

I was a bit too ashamed to post my humble gun after seeing this but this gave me renewed confidence :D This is my first bbmg after all, so give me a break :wink:

It's still a work in progress. Need to pretty up the connection between the gun and the blowgun, paint, etc. But most of all need a new air source... suggestions?

Anyhow, heres the gun:

The barrel is a support strut from a nitro rc heli... Near tightbore fit.

That ugly connection I was talking about

Ghetto Air source:

Corny a$$ video :D :lol:

Thanks guys :)
Your videos are never corny PC. :p

:D
On a serious note, I was thinking of getting ahold of a fire extinguisher and using it at +-300 psi and getting a reg for that. Has anyone ever tried this setup on a bbmg?

Yep, had a little ghetto cloud BBMG that i hooked up to a 6L water + additives FE. (The one i destroyed with my hybrid a few years later). I couldn't pump it to 300 psi, so i would just run it unregulated at somewhere around 120-180 psi.
It was a great thing, and the 200 BB's a second were a beast.

You should definitely try it if you can.

Vortex blocks don't exactly sum up ones gun, especially when it's out of sight :roll: Besides, I merely said his gun gave me renewed confidence :D

I know, but a well made vortex does matters, his gun has clearly better accuracy than my with a hand made fiberglass vortex

About how many seconds of air did you get with that? I'm looking for around 7 secs so It would at least last me a game.
