My first cloud!

Unread postAuthor: lukemc » Sat Mar 10, 2007 3:55 pm

i built my first cloud last night and just got to shoot it this morning. This thing is a beast. im using 1.5" Pvc with 5/16 brake line. using 60psi this thing rocks (would more psi be better? my dad dosen't think is safe to go higher if it improves with more psi ill just change it) its amazingly accurate except for the occasional stray shot. my son to be ex. friend :wink: said he'd let me shoot him and video tape it ill put up the video as soon as i can!

Awesome, try to find a smaller barrel so you can shoot real BBs as well.

Um yeah as far as i know operating at a higher psi would definatly safe. As far as cloud bbmg's go the more psi just increased the gun's rof. Because of the continuous airflow they operate on a safer level of psi around 20-30 range. I would try it at a higher psi like 80 or 90.

On other note nice work man. Like the color.

Yeah, also, the higher the pressure the higher the FPS goes........ and if you airsoft you know what a higher FPS does....... Can cutting anyone?

Naw man the thing that makes ur accuracy go up is the tightness of the barrel and the lenght of the barrel. Ull always have a couple fly off though.

Im not sure what the ID of 5/16 brakeline is but experiment find tighter barrels longer barrels then come and post your findings on the accuracy of bbmg's related to barrel length and inside diameter here on spudfiles.

im not sure how i can measure accuracy of a cloud because of all the open variables but ill try and find some better barrels and make a list best to worst

EDIT: my barrel is actually longer than it looks in the pic if you look close it actually extends off the picture

Well for starters if you do want to measure the accuracy, just put in a certain number of bb's , lets say 100. And do a simple range test at say ranges of 10 ft. or 5m (for you euro's) then see how many hit the paper. This is what i did when i got my airsoft pistol. LOL it was pretty cheap i only got 12/25 bb's. But yeah i see the barrel is longer, give us the length and ID of the barrel.
