the reason it popped off is not enough threads your right pill bottles works good the ones with child lock so u have to push down then screw they stay on good i fired mine when it was blocked and it still didnt pop off just kinda got abit smokey lol here is a site i made on how to make a good powerful micro gun http://www.freewebs.com/micro-gun

also do not use a jar class is like biggest mistake you can do if they blow up can cover you in glass and blind you plastic expands.

i made mine with a pill bottle metal pipe alot of hot glue coverd it in black tape and used a lighter ignition also added a handle with a smaller pill bottle it is powerful il post a picture of it sometime

Yeah I think the orange perscription bottles work best cause they're thicker plastic with better threads and they have the child proof lock. Mine the cap is so flimsy it just shoots right off unless i use like barely any fuel.

:roll: As I stated in a previous post to avoid the problem of the pill bottle try those containers they have in the camping aisle of most stores they have for storing matches. They have a true screw on cap and they are very solid. Drill a hole in the bottom(after removing the striker) and epoxy the pen tube in. I use spray on body cologne (YES) the cheap type and get a great shot up to say fifty feet with a pleasing POP!

:) I posted this elsewhere but try using a match container found in the camping section of your favorite store to make your mini spud. It has strong threads on the cap and the container is heavy duty compared to pill botttles. The only addditional thing you need to do is remove the striker from the bottom and proceed as usual-makes a great gun!

is a certain type of 1/2 pipe that fit paintballs perfectly.


This is probably false because some paintballs are 50 calabre and some one probably thought 1/2 inch pipe was actually 1/2 inch ID so the paintballs would fit

i made one just like this, but i used an advil with a child proof cap. well... i was in my room to test it. i dry fired it and (the cap was on tight) but the whole cap came off and hit me in my stomache. so i got 3/4 inch pvc pipe and attached that on there. now it works perfectly. with axe body spray and some grapes carrots or tomatoes its a fun night. i can easily shoot a grape about 75-100 feet with a good load.

I recently made a gun with a 2" chamber, 1/2" barrel, BBQ sparker ignition. It's really unreliable because air/fuel ratio is critical. But when I get it just right (Right Guard fuel), it's very satisfying. Anybody know a way of reliably charging a chamber this small?
