Midget Ghybrid!!

Unread postAuthor: Scope » Mon Nov 27, 2006 9:38 pm

Well here it is!! I thought I was the first person to make a mini hybrid but killa beat me to it!! O well. I posted this because its the cheapest bang for my buck I have made. It cost me well nothin actualy. I had all the stuff just laying around!! Its duel ignition (was 3 but when pressurized it wouldnt spark cuz the dense air), fills with a schrader, uses stacked plastic wrap burst disks. What else. It was actualy kinda a hard build ( :oops: ) because this is my first attempt at anything hybridish. For a completely ghetto hybrid (Ghybrid) it kicks ass. It shoots better then any mini combustion i've ever made (like 100,000{ish}). And it sounds like a bomb just went off when you shoot it.

Safety wise. It still scares the crap outa me so im still testing it from behind protection but the disks break before it gets up to 110 psi and my mini pump only puts in 60 so im trying to not blow my self up!!
I have found that a long shot of butane and about 10- 15 pumps is perfect.

It actualy makes a good combustion and a good pneumatic seperatly too, for its size.


Thanks for listening huys!!

If you ever use that thing over 1x, come to my house so I can slap your dumb ass.
Other than that, it looks great. :lol: I always love the ghetto guns. I should post my pringles can gun....

I think building a hybrid shows enough intelligence to know I'm joking about slapping you, but seriously, NEVER use that hunk of trash with a BBQ igniter stuck in it over 1x.

Yea no I know. I made sure the burst disks broke before i got to far above that as a safety measure.

Have a look here for some tips on simply and cheaply fuelling small hybrids:

As to this old thread, interesting to see how far mini-hybrids have come in the past 6 years :D
