Now shooting at my winter duvet

Damn.. I need to take more care when aiming. it just missed and it hit the wall. at 110 psi - the wall which has already been defaces by about 50 marbles. .. haha o well it was amazing. the marble was unharmed by it had white stuff stuck on it and the wall literally exploded with dust - well the hole. it was like bang and dust was all over the place like a tiny explosion.

Well.. this is all - I cant wait till my exams are over, i'm building another mini - but based on a t section diphragm over udner design - cant wait that long lol. i have a thing for mini spudguns - theyre just so cute ands o destructive - but only if you know how to make one properly.

Now the dent on the left is caused by the same marble which went through the 100 page book. the one on the right (bigger) is caused by a marble at 40 psi from 1 metre away.

All the parts taken apart - it can be taken apart for travel. its rly rly small. the neoprene disk is cut from my cymbal muffler on my drumset. as you can see, the part attatcked to the blowgun is pretty frakenstein - cuz i used so much metal putty to make it very sturdy. its rly hard now. i also used loads of epoxy to eliminate leaks.

My super cool pump with it's super cool guage - it can go up to 12 bar which is 175 psi. ive only brought it up to 140 because its teriible hard to pump anymore and also becuase my gun leaks terribly after 120 psi. - teflon tape to the rescue !

My tennis ball barrel mod - this thing didnt work at firts with my low quality pump that could only bring it up to 100 psi. but now with my new pump which i bring my gun up to 140 psi - it works perfectly - well.. enough to bounce off a wall and smack me on the head and still hurt 2 metres away.

Now its with it's bb barrel mod. its the tube used to deliver bbs into my old bb gun - mp5. its nearly an exact fit for bbs - not really, a lot of space can be seen but its perfect for the rod that coems with the tube - i cut it into small dowels - theyre plastic - or i make penetration rounds with it - damage pics up later - theyre rly good,

Here it is with it's marble barrel mod - this thing is a rly tight fit - marbles are an exact fit, it takes 1.5 seconds to roll down at 1 foot barrel. Its 3/4 inches.

This is my new pistol oriented spud pneumatic cannon. I actually call it the MBSFMS - the multi barrel super fast marble shooter. haha but thats just a name - whats in a name?

Thats awsome. My parents would kill me if i shot marbles, and it hit the wall. I also like how it can be taken apart for travel.

if you need plans to build a spudgun, you shouldnt be building them. even on my first one, i just looked at different designs and planned my own after i knew how they worked

Thats a very good point iamthewalrus. It is very important to understand the physics and dynamics behind a :lol: toy :lol: like this. Its a weapon, and everyone associated with this sport/practice need to realize the severity of the damage that can be produced from a cannon.

couldnt be said much better, people see these and think "cool i can use this in a paintball/airsoft game to shoot someone with a bunch of paintballs/bb's at once" but the truth is, unless you're using it as an indirect fire weapon or to take out tanks you're going to do some serious damage to someone, after 300fps (almost all guns are over this) it can cause some major damage to someone, and the goggles on a paintball mask can possibly shatter if hit with something going that fast

Yeah, I think that it was a hybrid that i posted a comment on about using it for paintball, and that is a really stupid idea as you corrected me on. PSI is nothing to mess around with, and an unaimed shot could seriously wound someone. Don't mess with it unless you know what you're doing. :D

I do agree with you last few guys but i mean what's the best kind of material to use for diaphrams and what to use for a good cut that's my only real question.

This is off subject but the thing you called a football on the comparision picture is really a soccer ball. Nice gun though. Is the gun inaccurate or can you just not aim good?(thats not ment to be a insult)
