First fully machined PCP (R.I.P)

Unread postAuthor: wyz2285 » Sun Jan 19, 2014 5:33 pm

Well, this was my first attempt at machining a PCP airgun.
Something that was always in my mind, ever since the first time I saw them been "homemade". Concept was simple, standard hammer valve, hammer, separate cocking and bolt handle, can't get any simpler. So didn't need to plan much and was done during last summer holidays hangovers :D
As my first step toward more serious builds, I was proud of it. It had a copper chamber, for 1000 psi, 5mm smooth bore barrel (I also made a 5mm pellet mod just for it), rest are made of aluminium and brass.
It worked wonderfully, so I decided to take time and make a nice wooden stock for it. But first I made a simple stand for it and putted it on my bookshelf, which was a mistake :cry: Before any further testing nor the stock to be done, my mom dropped it while cleaning the bookshelf and it broke the bolt, suppressor and bent the barrel.
The video was made days before the disaster.

I didn't share it sooner because I was hoping to fix it, but now I realize I'd better move on and make a better one :)
BTW guess what my mom said after she dropped it :roll: ? "See? That's why you've these dents on the ground! I told you be careful and do not damage the ground!" (the gun has it's weight and it's wooden floor)

Heellll no! FIX it and FINISH it. :)

You spent a lot of time making that...you owe it to yourself to finish it. Be proud of what you've accomplished...many folks procrastinate their lives away wishing they "could" do things they want....you got off your arse and DID something you wanted to. :thumbleft: :thumbleft:

Now....get back to it eh! :)

Even if I fix it, it's more likely to sit on the stand. The copper chamber kind limited it's potential as a PCP also the trigger lack some more thought...
Now that I've a 4.5mm Crosman barrel, a stainless steel tube for chamber, I'm more inclined to make a new one...We will see how many free time I can get since college have started.

That is true, but sometimes it takes more courage to just put something down and start over. Still, don't get advice on finishing things from me :roll:
