C.A.M.O "RIFLE"

Unread postAuthor: Pyro Ninja » Fri Apr 04, 2008 3:50 am

Camo.Anti.material."O" "rifle"
Its not a rifle perse, but I recon it looks the part
Specs
Chamber- 25mm Pn18 pvc pipe (pressure rated)
Valve- madded 25mm sprinkler valve
Barrel- 20mm poly pipe
ammo- marbles
I know there is a little bit of dead space between the valve and the barrel and the blowgun and the valve, but I'm happy with the power and comfortability I'm getting.
R UA RED DA

Ok heres some Picture-

Very nice, though I think that camo isn't doing any good with a gloss coating :D

About the gloss, It wasn't glossy until I sprayed it with a clear coat to protect the paint, It looked nicer without the gloss :(
Damage pics will come soon.

I know what you mean, I found it also darkens the paintjob quite a bit too :(
I don't bother with gloss anymore, I just wait a week for the paint to fully cure, or just be really, really careful with it.

helpful tip on when the clearcoat adds glossiness to your paint job... apply your common color... then do a layer of clear coat and then do another layer of your common color or camo... this way if your top surface paint gets scratched you wont really nottice it because there will be a layer of clearcoat and under that your common color... you can do this multiple times for more coats.

I waited atleast a week, aswell as being really, really careful with it, and the paint still gets scratched off. Crappy, cheap spray paint

more like C.A.M.O "Smoothbore" :lol: tis quite nice... both the camo and black paint looked equally good... though as Crowley said the gloss isnt doing any good for the camo, kinda harder to see... there for the black was better :? lol

A little Video is up now.
The shot is from about 5 meters away with a marble at 100psi, who can figure the problem out? :oops: :lol:

I will also acknowledge that the design is based of "experament_u2"s "reaper rifle" Good design

Very nice gun
I like the glossy camo, it looks good. But the blue tape wrapped around the blowgun kinda ruins the look a little. I would recommend replacing it with hose clamps.

The marbles I use are just cheap cat eye ones, they are 4 grams each and only costed $1.00 for 101 (the 1 is the large one).
Although they don't fit perfectly in the barrel, with a bit of tissue as wadding, they shoot pretty well.

Has anybody worked out the problem with the first video?
