My Gun

Unread postAuthor: Mitchy » Thu Aug 30, 2007 2:20 am

Hey guys,
Not sure where to post this but here goes!

I have made this gun with a ramset powder actuated nail gun. I fires 8mm ball bearings and uses a .22 caliber charge.

I am wanting to make a silencer for it but still trying to design and fully learn the rules and principles of them.

Thanks Guys

i dont think if this is allowed becuase it uses solid propellant (gunpowder), double check with the mods

The gun is effing sweet :D , but I would advise against building a silencer. Go check out "The Fuzz Sucks" Thread in Non-Spudgun Related Discussion. The rules for silencers, real or homemade, at least in the U.S., is that they are illegal.

Search how to make a silencer, otherwise you will get flamed i think.
Not by me but by other members :)

Edit: You need a longer barrel, and yes i do believe that solid propellants are not allowed :cry:

Yup that looks like a gun, and works like one to, but it looks like a blank. (crimped edges) however I could be wrong.

He's still using the power from it to launch a ball.

It's still a firearm.

The gun is nice but it is still illegal (and against forum rules). I'm wondering why it has been showcased as long as it has.

It is a blank. A blank bullet. Or it could be ratshot. Either way, it still contains solid propellants (which is against forum rules), classifying this thing as a firearm (making it illegal without a serial number).

Interesting creation, however this is VERY illegal, and VERY dangerous!

You have created an illegal firearm, not a spud cannon.

I will have to close this thread.

Also TwitchTheAussie, solid propellents can not be discussed here since it when used they are (by law) a firearm, no longer a spud cannon. It may be different in your country, but this site is based in the USA and those are the laws here. Sorry.
