I think bbs would fit loosely though the smaller one. But if it works it works. If i were you i would eventually buy a better tube though.

I find its easier to rumage through the plumbing section on my own rather than asking someone. Nothing is ever in the right place and then end up not being able to find it, so after about 5 minutes they start talking non sense and trying to offer me substitutes.

It wouldnt be a bad idea if your dad got on this site and read a bit too. He doesnt know much about this kind of stuff. Yes pvc is hard but it CAN be pressurized. It IS the primary air tank in ALOT of cannons. I have on sitting right next to me with a pvc chamber.

It doesnt matter if it can expand. I would be a little worried if it did expand. If it did, it would easily explode.

You can force any given amount of air into anything. Its just a matter of how much will be too much for it too handle.

Also, i dont think people have rubber tanks on there air compressors. Its usually metal, which is even harder than pvc.

If he continues to insist that pvc cant be pressurized ask him why a compressor tank can and see what he says.

HAHAHAhAHAHAHA

ok, so... i don't think my dad will let be buy another pvc pipe, especially since if you buy one at home depot, it comes like 500 inches long [lol its long thats all you need to know].

Could i just try with my abs? Are you people hiv positive that abs will not work, i don't find pvc and abs much different. In fact abs cost even more. Well next time i will ask the people at home depot when the new one opens in my area if there are pvc's that can be pressurized, although the guy may be wondering what im doing since these pipes are mainly used for water and such. Btw how long should the tank even be and would my abs 3" pipe be big enough

I think bbs would fit loosely though the smaller one. But if it works it works. If i were you i would eventually buy a better tube though.


are you saying the tube is too big?

would it really matter the size of the tube, cause i find it if its too thin, won't be that study, but its possible for it to fire like 10 bbs at once right or possibly get jammed

and lastly a 1.5" abs pipe is able to fit a vortex block in it right? my chamber seems a bit too small. and what should i use, the semi half circled one, or full circle with 2 holes

oh and 1 more... i realised that all vortex inline guns have the blow gun in the front part of the abs chamber

how would i be able to fit another handle so i could hold it like an smg

while i waited for you guys to respond, i saw something called a tee vortex gun. Which one is better, inline or tee

check out this thread please
