Stainless steel block bbmg?

Unread postAuthor: Mike_Hunt0420 » Thu Jan 12, 2012 11:33 pm

Was wondering if making a bbmg that amounts to a burnt latke style gun made from seamless steel and running off co2, pressure washer handle in place of the blowgun is a good plan. Simple, not too expensive, and durable, almost like my personal spudgun tri-fecta.

If you can put it together, why not. Just remember that BBMGs are incredibly wasteful of both gas and ammunition, so be prepared for significant firing bills. One other thing to consider is that dumping CO<sub>2</sub> at high flow could result in freezing problems, HPA is probably a better idea.

I had forgotten about co2's tendency to freeze things. I don't see any breakage happening with the materials I have planned but I don't want the dang thing freezing to my hand, that would suck. I'll look into an HPA tank thanks.

I'd say aluminium block with stainless steel pipe section insert.

Easier to drill.
I'd advise to make it smaller diameter than the usual low pressure bbmg.
Just to get the most out of the pressure.

I've made and fired an unregged CO2 bbmg and I can tell you it is extremely violent.
A true deathray.

Eventhough I used airsoft bb's and it used a CO2 12 gram bulb for every 2.5 seconds of firing it was cool as hell.
Every bb that hit a hard surface turned to shreds.

This fact plus the ridiculous gascomsumption was the reason I started experimenting with other means of achieving full auto.

If you can try to locate some of those disposable CO2 welding bottles.
Cheapest CO2 containers I've found.
It's been sitting in my shed next to a pair of pressurewasher handles...
Unless you can get HPA and refills cheaper.
That would be the best option.

Thank you guys for all the info. I am leaning toward a piston bbmg to help control the use of ammo, not sure though.
