I don't know where Carl ended up at, but I do remember talking to him about pneumatic guns quite a bit...

Wow... It's hard to believe that I forgot some of your names without jogging my memory...

Who doesn't know sgort (we didn't talk much though) :P

I definitely remember Schmanman after looking at his user page and noticing Michigan. (I'm from Ohio, and I remember talking about OSU vs. Michigan before I think).

I also remember Benny\benstern... one of which was flyingsloths? and one had a cat shooting an AK as an avatar :P

Ok Benny is from South Africa? I thought that's where Demon was from :P

On topic of the gun... I have not put in 2/4 spark screws... With the other 2 holes drilled, but the BBQ igniter isn't ready yet...

I'm having a really, really hard time with this junky CPVC handle... I put a 1/2" of pipe into the front end of the 3/4" CPVC Tee so my BBQ igniter would fit more snugly, but not I cannot get my cable tie \ hose clamp through the hole without crushing the igniter, which makes the button stick...

My Pneumatic combustion is actually extremely accurate (surprisingly :P), so I doubt this one will be that much of spray n' pray, but I won't know until I get some longer cable ties and widen the holes on the grip.


I have so many ideas right after moving back into spud guns, so it's pretty hard for me to keep on one gun!!! I seriously started on more guns today...

I'm working on a small 6mm/.25" brass/copper airsoft gun... I could easily make a cloud\vortex BBMG instead, but I'd rather make a more powerful semi-auto gun...

I was planning on a 1/2" barrel sealed tee... but it's pretty damn complicated working in a few inches of room... At least all the PVC parts are only a few dollars (about $2) if I happen to mess up...


and hello Eddbot!

Double Spark gap installed... Grip painted....

I still need 10" cable ties or hose clamps to attach the grip... After that I'll get some damage shots!!! (Probably in a few days) :)


PS: 1/2" barrel sealing tee scratched... moved to 1/2" coaxial... working on it

2" Barrel Sealing tee created...

Posted another gun update...

The gun is now complete!!!

I may take off the grip and repaint it... I chopped the hell out of it while I was trying to get the hose clamps through, just because I wanted to get over with it :P

Spark gap:[/b]
