Crappy 1st ever gun using PVC

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Tue Jan 08, 2008 10:09 pm

Well this is my 1st ever pvc gun. I was broke and wanted to make something so I bought pvc....It's all self explanitory so here are the pics.

(1st ever glueing job too....hence why it looks crappy)

Dispite how it looks, at 100psi, this thing has some brutal power.

Just your average glass marbles. I'm surprise how well the piston came out. its a small bolt, rubber washer and a coke bottle lid. Sanded down a fraction, its the perfect fit for 1'' pipe.

It did at exactly 100psi. the problem was air was leaking between the lid and the rubber face so i just stuck a few washes between em and tightened. thanks for the comments.

Thats way better than my first few primer/glue jobs! PVC is cheap, durable, and very easy to configure. Just don't drop it hehe

I dont see why you call it crappy it looks really good to me and the glue job is pretty good too.You should edit the crappy out of the title as this is definatly not.And are any damage pics or a video possible.

I agree with the others this is definately not "crappy" but I also think it deserves a sweet paint job. 8)
