Converting a M-8 to a Spudgun

Unread postAuthor: burke_a_lot » Thu May 24, 2012 1:48 am

Will post more info and pics over the next couple of weeks....

Replacing the barrel and reinforcing the seals....

Changing to RTF ignition, making a 'top-load' magazine, and I might have a look at the gas delivery system....

Also making up a frame to make it portable as well as mounted for the back of the Ute ('Pickup' for you yanks)

It's a gas gun/bird scarer.

Burke_a_lot, be a bit more specific describing your projects. We aren't mind readers.

Mate, it doesn't take much more time to say that an M8 is a gas gun.

Fine.... it's a agricultural scare gun that uses gas to create a 145DB bang to simulate a double barrel shotgun....
