how to make a mini or handgun spudgun

Unread postAuthor: spudzooka98 » Tue Mar 19, 2013 5:34 pm

hi I am looking for a good design for a mini or handgun potato gun. I see a lot on YouTube and Google but they are made from pill bottles and pens I want one made from PVC. And I want it to shoot paintballs and really far too. Any ideas

also it would be cool if it was 24 inches or under

Look through the showcase and discussion sections and study what others have posted. Come up with a build plan of your own from what you learned while you studied. Then post your plan if you still have questions.

As jrrdw pointed out, plenty of inspiration here:

And I want it to shoot paintballs and really far


How far is that?

I want feet, metres, anything.

thanks i understand but all i see is soda bottles ductaped to pvc but i did not know if i went by the barrel being twice the length of the chamber but the chamber being twice the diameter would work on small scale

i did a tater gun like that and it works amazing 3 foot barrel 1.5 foot chamber 2 inch barrel 4 inch chamber sparker in end cap it shoots out of sight
