15 Minute Spring Powered Mini

Unread postAuthor: maverik94 » Thu Feb 26, 2009 10:38 pm

Here is a spring powered mini I made in about 15 minutes, It is made from the end of an old sharpie, a portion of clothes-hanger, a powerful spring form a toy gun (found at kroger I think), and a key ring. I hope to try using airsoft bbs for ammo, but I have used roofing nails as ammo so far. They have gotten stuck in paper towel rolls, not that impressive, but I didnt really plan this project out. Anyway, it's a pretty weak gun that I've shot myself in the finger with and it doesnt really hurt......but.....

This is the mini, I wanted to paint it with a paint pen, painted it, didnt like it, then sanded off some of the paint and got lazy and didn't finnish sanding it

This is me pulling back the "trigger" of the mini (yes I know I have the smallest thumbnails in the world)

Reminds me of the Mardi Gras bead shooter we made in the 7th grade. It used a wooden plunger to launch plastic Mardi Gras beads, and we finally stopped making them in high school when my friend got suspended for shooting one past my CC coach. :)

Nice little mini.
