you should make the barrel flus with the wall of the bottle. That way they get sucked in better.

Other than that, nice job!

Are you using an air compressor for that cause it may be able to explode.

No mine didnt explode. Yours is much better then mine. Mine would get jammed and shoot off the barrel. Does the cap screw on?

It could, but I severely doubt it. A cloud BBMG's pressure is usually around 18 psi, which a pill bottle can usually hold. They're used for mini combustions all the time, and combustions usually produce well over 20 psi.

yes, i did get the idea from the proffesor, sorry i forgot to mention that. i only made this gun so that i could see how it works before i make the real one. i should finish it tomorrow, so i will try to make another thread for it. it will work much better than this one.

PVC Arsenal, thanks for the tip about the barrel, i will keep it in mind with the next gun.

and proffesor, the bottle is one of those from the pharmacy, so it has one of those child protection locks on it that hold it down really well. they work great for combustion mini's so thats why i used it for this.

and another thing, none of the parts are attached to the gun in anyway! i have to take off the blowgun to use for my pneumatic cannon, and the pen, well, i was just to lazy to glue it. but it works great! ill try to finish my next gun soon(once i get the last piece)

Make sure when you make yours the chamber isn't too big. I made mine too big and it really sucks. Also mine works much much MUCH better when you flip it upside down so the barrel is on the bottom. Maybe someone should try it that way and see if the results are better. I mean it makes sense you would probably get a better rof.

Try putting your barrel on the bottom and see if it works well and let me know.
