Aussie Paintball Gun

Unread postAuthor: more_eggs » Mon Dec 27, 2010 6:17 am

Sup ya'll.

Some of you may have seen these floating around..

http://www.britznpieces.com.au/pd_supa.html

Well you can get the paintballs at Big W for $15 for 250.. and that detachable barrel looks perfect as an attachment for any of your portable airgun/single shot guns..

Personally Im gonna throw one onto the gun I made a while back.. The paint in the balls is water soluble so you dont have to worry about your walls :)
From what iv seen, the stock toy is a POS. Hardly enough power to break the balls.. but put 200+ psi behind them, and it should make for some fun..

I could see some friendly bush paintball battles being organised :P

Lol. Punctuation does wonders for clarity.

I think there was also a discussion here a little while ago that stated that these balls were somewhat weak. If it's all you can get however, by all means make it work.

oh dear :oops:
many apologies, I was up late.
In english: I recently got a free voucher to the value of 20 dollars for rebel sport. In order to obtain this voucher, I signed up for an offer called the "rebel season pass". I would suggest that you also sign up for this offer, so that you can get a 20 dollar voucher and use it to buy paint ("splat") balls from rebel sport.
once again, sorry for the incoherent retard comment.

Before you get into a skirmish with home made paintball launchers, be careful and chrony then to a max of 300 FPS. High speed can shatter safety goggles and cause serious injury.

Remember, I dented a car door with a marshmallow.

Someone has a thread with some photos of testing done with paintballs and paintball goggles. The goggles break with excessive speed on the paintballs.

sounds promising but someone might want to to test their reliability.
they are designed to burst at very low velocity so it is likely that anything with more pressure will just spray water based paint everywhere.
I could be completely wrong (and am praying that I am!)

Well I can drop them and they bounce if that makes a difference haha..
Im waiting for my barrel to dry and I'll test them this afternoon at pressures between 100 and 200 psi.. they feel like they should be fine, though I dont have a good sized o-ring as a detent yet.. But the barrel is actually a very good fit

They work.. Quite well.. I took them all the way up to 300psi, though without a detent. Good range and accuracy, and pretty painful to wear in the back haha
