Unconventional Cloud

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Fri Jul 21, 2006 2:55 pm

Here is a cloud I've just begun working on. It isn't finished yet obviously but I'm sure it will work eventually. I designed it because I wanted a more realistic looking and ergonomic cloud BBMG.

The entire gun is 1.5" PVC.
The upper portion of the tee is the actual "cloud" part. It is plugged in the rear and bottom outlets. I will use a holesaw to remove the PVC step inside of it so that a pipe can fit all the way through it.

The blowgun/trigger is built into the angled handle and I will a route the hose you see up through the vertical handle so that it still incorporates the effective "air from below the gun" concept.

The cloud will use 30" of 5/16 brakeline for its barrel but has a thread-on cap so I can put on different ones if I want.

That will look cool when its finnished, especially with a red dot scope, and a paintjob, instead of making it a cloud, you should make it a sweep chamber.

Lol, I looked at it and I'm like, wow that thing is really clean, but it looks like he fucked up the alignment :lol: :ida: it's not glued, I'm a genius :D

That sounds really awsome, good idea for breaking the standard cloud making...

So far far this thing has been tough to build. I had to bore out the tee with a hole saw and then grind down the section of pipe that fits through it to make the chamber. It turned out okay but now I have to put in the barrel and attach the blowgun and hose fittings.

Trust me, there's a lot more to it than you think. You have to bore out the tee, cut a slot for the blowgun, find a spacer that fits in it, tap the chamber for the hose, drill out both handles for the barbed fittings, drill a perfectly centered hole for the barrel and much more. It's not your typical glue up and shoot gun.

I'm almost finished, just need to put in the barrel. Pictures will be up soon.

Yeah yours is cool, but what I meant by tough was that it wasn't the like the usual three-piece cloud gun, a little more to it is that I meant.

I never built a strafer but do they have a barrel such as brakeline within the PVC barrel or what? It's pretty obvious bb's don't fit in any size PVC so I though they had another barrel inside.

Almost done...

Blowgun trigger & hose to redirect airflow:

It still needs a barrel and compressor fittings to be installed.

Actually I put the project aside but it hasn't been forgotten.

I just have to tap a hole out for the barrel and it will be finished. It really is a cool gun, you can hold more naturally and aim it easily.
