Mitcho's Musket (Whammy Gun MkII)

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Mon Mar 31, 2008 11:15 pm

This is my latest boomstick variation guys. This gun should make JSR a wee bit more happy due to my pilot being a sh!t load smaller :D. This is probably my most reliable and powerful gun to date, not to mention the most comfy and easy to use.

I use it at 160psi just as a plinker due to the insane boom this thing gives off at 200+ psi (300+ is just deafening....)

It's quite a simple design. Definately my most simple anyway... The piston is located in the 15mm nipple that connects the ball valve to the coupling, which connects it to the gal. The piston is just a smooth, non abrassive rubber stopper that I found. Even unlubed, it runs very smoothly in the nipple it's cased in which makes for very little maintainance.

Anyway guys, hope you's enjoy :D

Hehe my little 4 month old Maremma pup I was aimin the gun at. (Don't worry.....I made sure the gun was completely empty about 10 times....

Definately not loaded.... I don't kill anything that breathes or has more then a single cell..

This shot was done from 3m back with a carrot slug that I punched out with the barrel from my mini 8mm barrel. (great ammo)

This was done with a shitty 6mm distorted sinker with a bit of wadding at 200psi at 3m (the can was full of water)

Extemely comfortable to hold. I'm thinking about extending out the back off the gun and making a galvanised stock....Hmmm...

I painted the custom welded trigger arm gold to match the brass fittings but it's a different type of gold aaaaand it faded over time...

The gun and the pump in all it's glory!

Thats a sharp looking gun. Nice damage pics too. I really like it because i'm thinking of designing an air cane,although yours does remind me of a musket also. partly because if it looked like a cane you would never have to conceal it. also thinking as the baby boomer generation(my parents age) might want something to plink with in the future. So they could have commercial value there. thanks

Looking good mitch.

Looks sort of like a longer flint lock pistol with that curved grip. (if I called it a "butt", "someone" would be sure to comment :wink: )

You punched up the pressure for the carrot shot didn't you? :D

Cheers for the comment Trivium :D.

Man, I think I'm not supposed to double post, but I was reading your reply and I noticed if you added one more curved handle on the end of the one you already have and maybe a folding/hinged trigger then painted it black and polished the brass connector,looks like it would make a great cain gun. I shouldn't double post but i am dying to know what type of pipe the handle is? I live in US so maybe that"s why I haven't seen one. Thank you.

Not a problem mate. I just used a standard 15mm galvanised long bend. That's all it is. I have no doubt that using 2 of them would make a very nice handle :D

A curved wooden handgrip would look really good on that thing. Like the old flintlocks:

Or you could make it into an umbrella.

Yeah the flintstock look was the way I wanted to go. Hence why I used so much brass and gal on it... but getting a curve like that isn't too easy :( I might try and get myself some 1/2 or 3/4'' copper pipe and a pipe bender....hmmm..

Amazing job Mitchza89. Looks like you put a lot of time and effort into that gun. Nicely made too. I look forward to seeing more of your creations. I would love to see a custom wooden handle on that mo'fo', but all in all, its a well crafted gun.

again, nice work,
