That looks really nice witht the pistol grip.

Now if you shortened the barrel you can paint it black and possibly make it look like a real pistol. But thats your choice.

Trigger setup is nice as well. Im looking forward to this gun in action.

Or you could add a stock and make it look like a rifle.

This is nice. Good job.

Looks awesome, gets a 10/10 from me.
That pistol stock adds lots of man points too, which i suspect won't go astray with a name like "Frocksie" lol :D :P

I love the coaxial tee look a lot!

This cannon looks GREAT, and I'm sure it shoots well also.

Is 9/32" an airsoft barrel? I've been using a 5/16" brakeline :roll: better buy a new one :P

Do you plan on giving this a paint job?

frogy--Yeah, it is 9/32, and I probably won't give it a paintjob, as I like the way it looks now that I have turned it into a rifle.

Here are some of the update pictures.

Damage to a tin soup can with 6mm airsoft BBs at 200psi. BBs went through both sides.

A inside ammo for airsoft barrels is actually cotton swabs... Wood sticks are much better for damage...

They don't sound like they'd do much damage, but even my mini combustion was putting cotton-shaft cotton-covered cotton swabs (lots of cotton :o ) through aluminum pop cans at 20 feet or so...

I was shooting some wood-shafted cotton swabs today and they'd go through aluminum cans at about 50 feet, but not steel cans completely...

Were you using the metal sniper airsoft bbs? or just regular plastic ones?

I have some 6mm .2g "High density" plastic BBs that inflict decent damage...
Homemade darts and pointed bolts have proved better for me though.

The BBs are .2g plastic, although I may try some pellets if I can get my hands on some.

I don't see any reason to shoot anything other than BBs or pellets due to the ease of use. Anyways, I would hate to be shot with this gun.

Why not tap the blowgun directly into the tee and extend a trigger rod into where the trigger is meant to be in the pistol grip? this will give you less pilot volume and a more ergonomic hold.
