I need some hopper ideas.

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets.

It's a hopper.

You just inflate it with air, and it works!

Seriously, post some pictures of what you're making.

I don't think this should be too hard to think up....

In an attempt to actually be helpful...

Some paintball guns use hoppers (not the bouncy kind :D) that agitate the paintballs to get a steady feed. If the flow of air from the barrel isn't enough, you could possibly use the vibrator from an old game controller to agitate the BBs.

*facepalm* Thanks Matt...

Here's some news, a different friend told me that he has a spare paintball hopper, and asked if I wanted it. Of course I took it, and my plan is to plug the down spout with epoxy, then drill and tap a 1/8" hole to screw it onto the gun. Hopefully it will work without any problems...

What cal is the barrel? If you just drill an 1/8" hole then it probably won't feed well, why not like a 1/2" hole?

unless you really trust your feeding mechanism or have a lot of air to wast, I´m pretty sure there will be a lot of jams / miss fires with a hopper.

Gun freak, I still have to tap the hole some how. But I may try making an epoxy plug, pulling it out, using a drill bit shaped like a cone (can't remember the name of it...) and then putting it back in and securing it with more epoxy, or pins.

Jack, thats pretty much what it is, but without the pop off. Just a blow gun. And it leaves welts, I tested with my brother in a little back yard airsoft stand off...

Pump action is just for show, and the original magazine I tried, but it didn't work. The spring was too strong, and it pushed the ammo straight out of the barrel at like 50 fps. And thanks for the complement on the looks!
