Rubber Band Rifle

Unread postAuthor: Jakal444 » Wed Apr 30, 2008 4:18 pm

Well this isnt a spudgun, it shoots rubberbands one at a time very accurately and surprisingly far (great for indoor use) plus it looks and feels realistic. Its used for small wars and target practice. Its quick to load and when the stock comes off it looks like shotgun.
I just thought someone may be interested.

Mostly one long piece of pvc pipe and 1 pvc coupler.
The trigger is a bent metal strip from an old windscreen wiper. The stock is 3 different lengths of tube taped on top of each other. The trigger guard is a strip cut lengthwise from another piece of pipe and bent.
And I used a hairdryer and my hands to create the bent parts of the grip and stock.

All in all pretty cheaply built from bits i had laying around.

Its a lot of fun though :)

Sorry but doesn't meet the definitions of a "rifle" :D

But it does look interesting.

Try adding a trigger w/ a spinning magazine

I think he meant a multishot rifle that uses an escapement mechanism and a gear. I used to build them when I was younger but they were less powerful and more prone to rubberbands getting tangled on the front.

Gives it kind of a "mafia" vibe, which apparently I seem to like.
