My handheld rifle hybrid (Pictures now up)

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Tue Dec 29, 2009 3:49 pm

Hey all, I'm proud to present my finally working hybrid! Been tryin to get it going on and off for a year or so.

I've only tested it without a barrel at 2x, not much else due to it being about 5 degrees Farenheit outside. It's rather ugly right now, I know, But i plan on constructing a shell for it, boltsniper style. Basically its just the bare essentials right now.

I haven't fired it with a barrel or any ammuntion, again waiting for it to get somewhat warmer outside. By warmer i mean above 15 degrees preferably.

Specs:

Chamber Volume: 380mL
Meter Volume: 40.5 mL
Barrel: 5.5 feet of .75 inch copper

I plan on doing some tests later on, with ballistics gel, and hopefully plan on making some foster slugs based on Gippetto's mold

Looks powerful, a rifle shell would make it look awesome. You could probably take that up to 3x or higher.

Sweet, it will look good with a proper stock and looking forward to seeing some higher mix damage :)

Bit of an update... Figures it warranted a new post.

With nothing to do today I plan on throwing together some type of crude ammo to shoot so I can get some damage pictures up.

Also I will hopefully get a large portion of the shell done, so expect some pictures later today
