new paint ball gun... "homemade"

Unread postAuthor: trae08 » Tue Aug 28, 2007 9:00 pm

ok here is my new paintball gun. ""ive been designing and building it for the past 2 months. the valve is somthing entirely unigue and very complex. i get around 300 fps with 80 psi.""

ok everything up there in the double quotes "" is not true but it'd be sweet tho huh..
anyway this gun is not very powerful just something i threw together in 10 min with spare parts lying around..

its triggered by the ball valve. i fill it up take off the quick connect an open the ball valve.

i like, may i please ask you how much the paintballs u use weigh?

i like it alot, and as a suggestion (if possible) replace that ball valve trigger* if i am right, with a more comfortable trigger, so your accuracy wont be affected by you jerking the trigger

I think the he just conects it straight up to the co2 reg/bottle and uses the co2 in the tubing between the ball valve and the reg.

I think the paintballs I have are 3.4 grams each, although I understand some brands can be up to 4.5g.

thanks for all the great feedback...

actually i threw this gun together with parts i found lying around took me about 10 min.

but theres no valve other then the ball valve, its got very bad performance the black hose and schrader are just there to fill those holes.

its all metal,brass,aluminum ive tested the ball valve and quick connect nipple to 400 psi.

it works like this: i hook it up to my air source via quick connect load a paint ball open the valve and the air shoots the paint ball out.

this gun is mainly to look cool, ill prolly dismantle it sometime an reuse parts to make something better.
