The making of an all metal vortex cap BBMG.

Unread postAuthor: Necrosis » Wed Jul 16, 2008 4:07 am

I am currently constructing an all metal BBMG (the thing itself will be completely from aluminium, the barrel will be made out of steel though)

This is my WIP thread.

Well, it doesn't work the way it's intended to.. it only works upside down.. wich is a shame. i also changed my barrel to a brass one....

It's kind of a prototype, for the real thing I will buy a dedicated blowgun wich will screw directly into the endcap. I also might buy a little co2 tank with a regulator so that I can carry it around..

Spring feeding only works for half hole vortexes right?


here's what I have so far:

It will work if you add a plunger in the bottom of the tube to push the bbs up into the vortex.

Edit: just don't make the spring too strong, or you may have trouble with the bbs jamming.

As for feeding properly, just add a legnth of 1/4 inch hose that goes over the outside your barrel, and down to the bottom of the chamber.

EDIT- Sorry, disregard this comment, I was thinking it was a cloud.

It's Nerf or Nothing.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

DAA D D DAAAAAA!

Have no fear, Davidvaini is here!

Your spring is to strong and or your air inlet is to far away from your barrel... however the gap doesnt look too large... are you using steel bb's?.

I would suggest playing around with a weaker spring.. doesnt have to be much... just enough to push the bb's up and just enough to keep up with the ROF.
