Unread postAuthor: thespeedycicada » Sun Jan 13, 2008 3:32 pm

This is my little ghetto dart shootin piston gun i made it in twenty minutes i have no clue if it will work but im sure it will leak a bit.it is half inch pipe from a ballvalve gun the barrel is some old aluminum pipe thing from a fire extinguisher and its piloted by a blowgun.The piston is an eraser that i cut to fit the barrel perfect.

Damage pics tomorrow (hopefully :roll: )

Looking good there might I suggest you turn the blow gun, to face forward, and put a drop or 2 of epoxy in the blowgun so that it exhausts some what quicker. I can see the front of the cannon just begging for a fore grip. and a mock sight couldn't hurt. :wink:

How does epoxy give a blowgun more flow?

it will leak a little through the blowgun, they have an inlet and an outler, you are suposed to have the bigger hole in the blowgun conected to the gun.

I will now sincerely apologize for possibly the most ambiguous suggestion ever, the idea behind the epoxy : At the part of the blow gun where the trigger makes contact with the plunger in the blowgun valve assembly, it is possible through using epoxy to allow the plunger to be depressed fully with a shorter squeeze of the trigger. By building up a bumper between the plunger and trigger, it shortens the distance.

Fortgtman: No sarcasm intended. Thats just me...
