combustion paintball pistol

Unread postAuthor: taterjim » Sun Nov 27, 2005 11:06 pm

This little bugger will shoot a paintball about a hundred yards in a good shot, although I typicaly only get about 250 ft.

At first I had a piezo sparker on it but it was just not dependable enough so I used a metal body type torch lighter I bought at woods. Touching the metal part has never shocked me so I just have it out in the open.

I have a long barrel for it to shoot marbles in, and it has quite a bit of power; it will shoot a marble through an empty white rain areosol can but not through half inch plywood - it just stuck in it nearly going through... My pneumatic will go through the plywood from 70' and doesn't seem to even slow down much.

This gun is really fun to shoot and has been a work in progress for a few weeks. The handle I put in the back really gets it open and closed quickly ,and I can keep 5 paintballs in the magazine plus one in the chamber. When I refuel, I just tilt the gun and another paintball falls in place. the foremost part of the barrel is drilled a little larger in the first inch to make a place to hold the paintball .the rest of the barrel compresses them a little - but not very much as they would burst.

When I am finished it will get a new paintjob. The sparker button is not where the trigger would normally be ,but it is right in from of where my thumb rests and isn't awkward at all.

The metal body of the sparker is held by a hose type clamp which provides a ground for one of the screws via a wire attached to the clamp.

Would you like me to organize you text into nice paragraphs? It's going to have to happen if it's put into "official" anyway.
Otherwise, pretty nice. Nothing spectacular, but it's normal to be... normal.
