Air Gun Mk. 2

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Fri Sep 07, 2007 8:22 pm

Hi all,

This is my new sprinkler valve pneumatic. After the failure of "Pneumatic funk" :roll: I decided to get; a longer barrel, get rid of the tape, A better stock/furniture.
This has all been morphed to create.....Air Gun Mk.2. I'm still waiting on an red dot optic to arrive from US but it's awesome even without.
The Maximum range (and still be able to penetrate a coke can) would be about 120m.

I'll let the Videos and Pics do the Rest of the Talking.

Shooting three cans in a row at about 40psi.

Shooting a Coke can that I shook up.40psi again.

Any comments and criticism welcome.

Happy SPuddin'

Simple, yet elegant. I can just imagine what it would do at its full potential. It seems to be fairly accurate as well.

thanks potato launcher and thanks hubba, yes it is fairly accurate but i have no sighting system as yet :cry: .May knock up a simple rearsight-foresight until that optic arrives.

Edit- @Phonut, I'm just about to do that now.

Love the way one of the cans gets embedded in the shoebox in the first vid :D

Nice launcher but please, PLEASE, is it so hard to do a little image editing before posting? The crop tool must be the easiest to use in the world. Toes are bad enough but is that your underwear?! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yeah, it's hella fun too shoot. :twisted:
This morning i shot three shots aiming at a piece of 90mm pvc pipe which was about 20cm high from a distance of 10m.
All shots scored direct hits without a sighting system. (I'll put up the vid soon).
So this would be the most accurate gun i have ever made.
The longer barrel probably owes to that, and i might try and put in a hop-up style backspin creator (even though it's probably not worth it).

Thanks MArco,
I came up with it when i realised it was hella inaccurate because i had to rest my cheek on the chamber and never got a good straight view.

It also folds and can look really cool.
:D
