A very simple pellet gun for a beginner

Unread postAuthor: shiv » Wed Sep 03, 2014 1:47 am

Hi i've been looking around a bunch, and am super interested in building a simple bb/dart gun (breach loaded i think). I have a bunch of questions. What would be the best source of propulsion for a budget, and ineveitably, a low powered system (i dont have an air compressor or big paintball co2 tank)? I dont really have any tools to work with besides the basics, so everything's gonna be storebought. I was thinking either a small co2 cartrige-to-bike pump (since there's already a trigger built in), using a bike pump to pressurize pvc tubing (what valve would i use to release the air quickly?). Or am i better off just trying to cannibalize some nerf gun internals to shoot bbs? Definitely favor the co2 bike pump (no pumping), but dont really know what power i can get from it. I really just want to shoot little darts or bbs at cardboard and cans. thanks, any input really appreciated.

*JSR shock pump reference* :D

As for the breech loader, I made a BB gun a while back with a compression nut based one. Drill out the tubing stop, drill a hole the BB will fit in in the tubing, and slide the compression nut over the hole, tighten to seal, loosen to slide and load.

EDIT: rummaged up a picture
