Oh and yeah she's not very pretty, got no spraypaint to paint the pilot setup and the teflon tape on the chamber is a few months old and has yellowed Shocked


Dont worry, i have teflon tape from my grandpas shop that is over 20 years old, and i used it... :D

Thanks. I just spent 20minutes ripping the excess teflon tape off, so none of it you can see. According to D_Hall this shouldn't have any effects and still maintain a seal.

First chance I get, i'll buy some spray paint...with my brother. :)

All the damn Maori's here tag all over the bloody place and now we have R18 bans on spraypaint. And i'm not even being racist, something like 97% of convicted spraypainters are Polynesian or Maori, and now everyone under 18 suffers because of their stupid 'art'. :roll:

Very nice little plinker you got there
I would say it looks better than it did before but still...
I have yet to make a gun without a long barrel, maybe i need to ignore power and efficiency and go make a sawn off.

Thanks, yeah I like it better then the last one, I just need to bloody paint it.

Well the beauty with this gun is that you can have long or short and still have great power either way.


@STHORNE,

They've banned all types of spraypaint to under 18's.

Great gun Crowley, can't wait to see it painted (sucks it banned for those under 18 ) and some damage shots of the paintballs through the minifridge. Was that its punishment for not having a compressor?

Love the name too, where'd it come from?

Well it's the same way where I live in the U.S. since most of the people where I live just get high off the fumes. They just have to ruin it for everyone else...

Whether you paint it or not, it still looks like a beast. Anything that can put a paintball through more than a few sheets of cardboard is worth the effort (in my opinion)

Thanks, sure was....piece of crap fridge :(

The name came from a character in the movie 'Revolver', who incidently fell over and blew his head off with his shotgun :roll:

Haha thanks, does anyone remember that shitty red pump I had? I posted a topic, trying to fix it awhile back. Well anyway, I used the pump shaft, about 1.2" in diameter, as a barrel. Great for spuds, packs a real punch at only 100psi :)

Hell yeah! :) I was going to name it the Ugly Duckling, but I like Slim Biggins better :wink:

I'm thinking of painting it, the whole pilot volume setup is old parts that have been painted and then scratched over so they look like sh|t.


I've seen plenty uglier before. I like the chamber/QEV setup and ball valve breach a lot actually. The longer barrel has a sort of flimsy look to it compared to it's beefy chamber...it's quite a performer though I'm sure.

Thanks and yeah I thought it'd be a problem, but the barrel is surprisingly straight with very minimal bend. Though a barrel support is in the making :)

Nice cannon, MrCrowley.
