Paintball gun.

Unread postAuthor: mrbjackson » Fri Mar 23, 2007 11:23 pm

Hey guys im new here. i dont really know much about paintball guns, but id like to learn. iv always been in to building random stuff. like i just finished building a hovercraft a while ago. pretty sweet. but my friends were talking about having another paintball war and i wanna join-but. no paintball gun. and so i looked for some online, and i asked for advice. and all the good ones cost way too much. rather than buying one, i figured i could just make my own. but could someone explain to me how a basic paintball gun works? thanks a lot.

Darn it.. you beat me to it.
I suggest you go buy a cheap one for 20 bucks, tear it apart and thereby learn how they work. Better yet, go to a paintball arena or your buddies' houses and ask them.
Then, you can come back here and finish this thread where you divide some of your infinite paintball-gun-making-knowledge to us poor chaps.

If you're 20 and not a liberal, you don't have a heart. If you're 30 and not a Conservative, you don't have a brain.

Sorry to ruin the fun but it's probably going to cost more to make one than to buy a cheap one. At least if it's semi auto. I tried to do the same thing. Your probably better off buying a cheap pb gun.

The main problem is getting an air source. If you use CO2, you'll need a regulator which costs around 80 dollars so right there your screwed. You can haul around a bike pump but I don't think that would be much fun in a pb game. You could also use a portable air compressor but those are heavy and I don't know how fast they can pump.

Hope that helps.

All you need is a reg and co2 then just wake your own tank,chamber and barrel. But yeah this is a pretty stupid thread, its quite obvious. Though being helpful just build a bigger vortex.
