water bottle combustion chamber airsoft gun

Unread postAuthor: ammosmoke » Wed Sep 27, 2006 11:17 pm

Hi, I'm new here, but anyways, I was wondering, would it be feasible to make a combustion airsoft gun? I would use a Bic pentube for a barrel (airsoft pellets fit perfectly inside), and a clear, thick walled water bottle for the combustion chamber. (I like to see the flame) :lol: Or, I would possibly use a beef stock container for the combustion.

Ok, well i know it would be possible, but do you have any extra suggestions for me? (Fuel, Ignition, ETC.)

by airsoft gun do you mean that it is to be used as an airsoft gun? keep in mind, a water bottle is hard to vent, hard to fuel, reload would be less than speedy, for a fun plinker it's very feasible (and powerful), but dont expect anything good

oh yea, a soda bottle will get stiffer and stiffer as you use it, i though it would shatter after the 5 shot. flame looks awesome though

use a long nose lighter and take it apart and set that up to two pins and stick them in the bottle for ignition.

well, i meant airsoft simply in the sense that is would shoot airsoft pellets.
i would maybe use it as a "blow you away" airsoft gun, but not as my primary means of shooting people up. Do you have any suggestions of a clear container i could use instead? Or do clear containers just suck?


O, and would it hurt if it shattered in my hand? If so, um, how much?
by the way, did i post this in the wrong section?

Try a pill bottle. They're hard to fuel right, but they're good and won't shatter (to my knowledge).
