Clear Airsoft Strafer

Unread postAuthor: noname » Sun Apr 29, 2007 2:40 pm

My newest airsoft strafer, thrown together for the competition. It utilizes a clear 1" SDR 21 chamber, a spring powered plunger, ghetto cut (but very clean) threads in the back, a 2 foot 9/32" brakeline barrel, a fake silencer that looks really kickass, a modified blowgun in a PVC handle, some clear epoxy, a clear vortex block with no shrouds and the front filed away for better feed, and some other stuff. It's about as strong as the Pocket Strafer but has a higher ROF and lasts longer (compared to the 1 second of firing out of the Pocket Strafer :lol: ).

Edit: Sorry for the bad pics.... :cry:

The self tapped threads, without a tap. I put a steel nipple up to the end, lightly blowtorched the pipe, and screwed the nipple in, blowtorching to soften the plastic when necessary.

Nice gun, but is that barrel angled upwards or is it just the photo?

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

I'm extremely sad I can't get a video. As you can see from the pics, my camera is shitty enough as it is.
The barrel is angled a tiny bit to increase long range accuracy, but the camera exaggerates it.

With .2 g BBs I get a spread of about 2" from 40 feet.

speaking of accuraccy, i was hoping to replace the barrel on my airsoft vortex bbmg(currently it's 5/16 brakeline which is very inaccurate), but i need to know which type of barrel is the best choice. So far heres the barrels im considering....

-an actual airsoft gun barrel(probably 8" long to save money)

-8mm OD copper pipe

-9/32 brakeline

i hope that those three will perform better than what i have, but i want to hear some opinions on which is best accuracy wise as well as price.

EDIT: noname- is there any uncommom brakeline size that might be better tham 9/32", i ask this because i know of a local place that sells specialty size brake and hydraulic line.

9/32" brakeline and 8 mm OD copper tubing have the same ID, give or take 5 hundredths of an inch. An airsoft barrel is probably a little tighter. An airsoft barrel will also be the most expensive. Copper tubing is next, and brakelin will be the cheapest, at about $2.50 for 3 feet. Brakeline will also mean you have to make absolutely NO modfications to the gun; or even taking out the vortex block. 9/32" brakeline sildes perfectly into 5/16," and friction keeps it from sliding out or slipping in any way. I'd go with the brakeline, hands down, but that's just me.

My favorite part is how you threaded that clear pipe. I wish I had those kinds of tools to work with. Great job.

Dude, I used a blowtorch and a steel pipe nipple! :D I heated the pipe and forced the nipple in with pliers, I don't know what kind of specialty tools you're talkin' about!
