Inline Vortex BBMG

Unread postAuthor: PracticalProjects » Sun Mar 09, 2014 2:21 pm

Hello all,
I've been looking aroiund this forum for info for a couple of years now and I thought I would post my own project. This is my first ever post so I hope you like it.

The parts and materials I started with were: an airsoft stock, 50mm OD 40mm ID and 200mm long clear acrylic tube for the magazine and firing chamber, a billet of aluminium bar, a blow gun and inner and outer barrel.
I started by turning down the aluminium to 50mm to match the od of the tube. I cut in to 40mm 50mm long for the vortex block to fit inside the tube, i did this for another bit 10mm in for the end cap.

I did the rest by hand using a hacksaw, file and obviously drills. This took quite a bit longer than I expected but this is what the finished block looks like

looking good!

You should also make the forum aware of your other projectile launching endeavors:

I'm sure this did some pretty decent damage too:
