Spare parts gun

Unread postAuthor: potatoflinger » Mon Jun 16, 2008 8:14 pm

This is just a spare parts gun that I made while I was bored. I usually operate this at 25 to 200 PSI, but I may go a little bit higher.

Chamber:
6" x 1/2" galvanized steel pipe

Valve:
1/4" QEV

Pilot:
Standard compressor blowgun

Barrel:
5/16" brake line

I probably won't be able to do any damage pictures or videos for a while, because I am pretty sick right now. I might make a video when I figure out what's wrong with me.

Sweet, i like it. With 200 psi you could probably do some significant damage for something so small.

Accuracy is pretty good, and the power is great. GGDT says 776 FPS @ 200 PSI with an airsoft bb.
