Pneumatic funk.

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Sun Aug 26, 2007 4:33 am

Hi all,
This is my first sprinkler valve pneumatic and it ended up pretty good.
It's max range would probably be about 35m to penetrate a School Folder.
It's only taped on at the moment but the Handle will eventually be glued on.
i am also waiting for a red dot optic.

Well thats all there is to it really.enjoy.

Happy SPuddin'

That's pretty neat man. A little ghetto, but neat. Just one question; do you hold both handles when you shoot it?

Just to add, last night i decided to shoot potato slugs you know like shove the barrel in and break it off the potato. Well it shoots the potato about 60-100m + i think i might have even got it up to 200m.

I am now obsessed with sprinkler valves.

BTW, Sorry for double post.
