Bolt Action Paintball Gun

Unread postAuthor: ShowNoMercy » Fri Dec 14, 2007 6:41 pm

This is a gun I am actually taking the time to get it working nicely and while doing so keep it appealing to the eye. As of now the bolt needs some mild work with the sealing faces and the accuracy, well it inst so great. The specs of the gun are as follows, roughly a foot of 1 inch pipe for the chamber which will be charged to 120 psi. The barrel is 2 feet of 3/4 CPVC and the valve is a sprinkler valve, modded of course. The bolt action is two tees sanded out and glued together so a piece of 3/4 could slide in them. What do you think so far? And where should I mount the trigger?

The whole gun.
Looking down the one side, breech closed.
I couldnt find the right fitting so it transgresses from an 1/8 fitting to 1 inch.
Bolt open, ready for loading.

Interesting :D

Well, as you may now, the most efficient spot to place the blowgun is right on the sprinkler valve, which may look kind of awkward. Or you can just put it where a tirgger normally goes on a normal gun.

Looks kindof bulky though. Maybye it you could slide it closer to the but i think that it would look nicer. :)

But other than that it looks like your progress is good.

where do you think you should mount the trigger? i will give you a hint... the best place is probably where the trigger sits on a real rifle :wink: other than that an alright cannon but i would have used a qev setup because thats less bulky.
