Making A BB Gun Using A Cap Gun

Unread postAuthor: WyldOne » Sat Apr 19, 2008 11:51 pm

G'day guys,

I've got a cap gun that I use to play with when I was a Little ankle biter. I have attached some photos of the gun. I have no idea how to turn it into a bb gun. All help will be great!

bit hard with a metal magazine like that, you need 1 made from plastic with holes instead of no holes and one big one. unless you can put multiple barrels
like them and drill holes around where you put the caps thats the only way you can do that

Haha i sure do :lol: Well a video of it firing. If you look through the bbmg gn show case you will find mine.

The one you have pictured can not be turned into one im afraid.

Because it has a metal clip or w/e with no holes in it, and the other side does not have cyclindrical type things to push the bbs into i dont see how to make it work.

Mine cost $2 for 2 of the ones that work, one was a long barrel, and the other was a short barrel, both 6 shots.

If you search you will be more then likely t find it. But im bored so ill have a quick look for it aswell.

EDIT: Heres the vid of it shooting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5AMNKgFxtU

Best thing to make it more powerful is to remove th paper stuff inside that cap rings, and fill with the powder from another ring, basicly combine the 2 togethor for double power :twisted:

EDIT EDIT: Well after like 3 minutes of searching i found it:

The topic was made by Mr.Russ and I, but posted under his name.

Time to enforce the rules.

Bah, you Aussies are to dang lazy...
It took me all of 2 minutes to figure out how to turn that cap gun into a cap and ball revolver, using parts easily attainable from a thrift store and an auto parts store…

I’m not going to say how for three reasons,
One, it against the law
Two, it’s against forum rules
Three, it’s too dangerous to shoot.

I’ll tell you this much: you can drill holes in the dumb thing and fill the cylinder.:wink:

Either way, don't do it.

Or, you could strip the whole of the cylinder and barrel away, keeping the hammer, grip and trigger, and use it to trigger a hammer-vavled pneumatic of course.

Ha, do you recon that would work? Im interested in this idea now.

Well i say just go buy a cheap plastc (or metal if u can find one with the right cylinder)

Or u could buy a good metal one, and use one of the plastic cylinders in it, and paint it a metalic colour to match.

Ahhh no there is one down at clovercrest, which is like 5 mins away from me, and like 8 mins away from golden grove shops.

I dont remember there being one up in the golden grove.

Ahhh just open out the white or yellow pages or something and look it up.

Even easier is look it up on the net.

Thursto.
