Building Vortex Gun

Unread postAuthor: nosebleedXD » Mon Jul 28, 2008 2:30 pm

So basically, i took time to read through the post of spudfiles and other places

Alot of users have said cloud tends to get jammed while vortex works more efficiently

I've read this link

so what i believe is the spring compacts the bb's all to one side to the vortex block

then the air from the blowgun transmits up making the bbs circle around the hole until it goes into the small end hole while it spins, out to the barrel, and out the gun

Exactly! See how much easier it is to search!

Also you could use a tee housed vortex. Im not sure what its call but it elminates the need for the spring.

Mine did not come with one. It came with some weirid nozzle.

If you buy one with a nozzle like mine had just unscrew it.

You will need to buy a 1/8 nipple and thread it into the hole, then just thread it into the chamber.

Thats what i was told anyway.

You'll still need a spring I believe, the spring allows the gun to fire with out the need for shaking and can be fired from any position.

Nope neither one of those have the nipple.

Basically anyjthing that the bbs fit in well. Ive heard people get different sized tubings at craft stores.

Also you can get soft copper tubing at harware stores such as home depot and lowes.

This is what the nipple looks like. When you get just make sure it is 1/8 inch

Yea, but it is not completely needed. Of course it will improve things a bit. Well alot probably. I would personal use the spring myself.

Yulp, thats it. It will be in the compressor acessories isle. Right next to the air compressors.

Like i said, make sure you get 1/8 inch.

And just for future refernce, most hardware stores dont have everything online that they have in the store. Its better to go to the store and poke around rather than assuming its not there because you couldnt find it online.

Ask your dad to buy them? Or a friend maybe?

When i was 15 i could buy the actual airspft bbs. I jsut couldnt buy the guns, or co2 or anything until i was 16.

As for BB'S, just go to a craft store, and buy some beads, or go to an automotive store and ask for 6 mm ballbarings :twisted:

man i hate home depot, or at least the one i usually go to

the blow gun i was looking for was 10 dollars there, unbelievable

then there was some gay faggit who always works at the plumming section and i don't even want to talk to him

can't wait for the newer one to open

anyways... i picked up what i could today

oh and i talked to my dad about the gun, he said you can't use a tank or something to shoot it, then he started talking about you need an air compressor for that blow gun

WOOH looks like he might let me use it

and also, he said pvc pipes shouldn't be able to be made into a air tank because the material is hard, i asked him what about a 2l plastic bottle, and he said you can since the bottle can expand but will easily explod
