JANET (sprinkler valve marble gun) (NOT COMPLETED)

Unread postAuthor: VH_man » Tue Jun 24, 2008 8:19 pm

Well, From the looks of the title this gun is nothing new at all. However i feel that it is proboably one of my best looking launchers to date (keep in mind it still needs some bondo work and a paintjob). Also, Bear with me, I am attempting using Photobucket for this post. And expect More Pictures when it is finally done.

Barrel: 3 Feet Type L Copper pipe
*Ammo Stop: Adjustable Machine Screw System
Valve: 3/4 inch Sprinkler Valve, Modified
Chamber: 6 inches of 2 inch PVC piping
Sights: 3X9X32 Air Rifle Scope
Rail Riser: Custom Shaped 2X4

Ammo: Wirenut/Screw darts, Marbles
Power: Estimated 600 FPS by GGDT with marbles, and 700 with Wirenut/Screw darts
Running Pressure: 30-140 PSI

And without further Adue I present my Favorite Gun to date:

Image

I think the only NEW thing about this gun for me is the trigger and the adjustable Ammo stop. Here is the Adjustable Ammo Stop:

Image

This is kinda cool because i can shoot marlbes that are slightly too small for my barrel, and i dont have to worry about putting dents in my perdy copper barrel to hold the ammo in. it also doubles as a crude hop-up for the marbles.

also, the trigger for this gun was kinda cool for me, because it was the first time i made a pistol grip. i think it turned out quite well:

Image

Also, if you want some damage, here is a 1/2 inch pine board VS. one of my Screw Darts. I will post a How-To on these darts, they are GREAT! and easy to make.

Very nice.
With some paint and little more bondo Janet will be hot! :P

Can't see the how the "Hop-up" works too well though in the pic?

Looks like a lot of fun will be even better when you finish it up. Reminds me of the french famas. May i ask what is all that glopish looking stuff a thermo plasic? Also how did you make that really nice rail.

the ammo stop acts as a hop up as it is located on top of the barrel hence putting some backspin on the marble

Cool. I was also thinking, if you drill a hole in the front and back of the wood handle, You could aim open sights (for close range or quick shooting) or with the scope. 8)

Oh man that screw dart looks pretty nasty. Kind-of went all out on the bondo I see...nothing wrong with that though...it will look great with a paint job on there.

Nice job!

wow, looks very well made.

suggestion though....for maximum accuracy, you want to try to mount the scope as close to the barrel as possible, making your wooden separator unnecessary.

but it's a very nice build. looks like a ton of time went into it. Good work!

Coming along nicely, and in some ways reminds me of the F88 :)

And who's Janet eh?

True, but as it looks he has nowhere for his cheek to go, therefore making a riser necessary.
BTW. Nice build man, nicee

It might well be Jam And Nipples, Extremely Tasty! - so I think we'd better let VH explain ;)

Well, better than Mary Jane Rottencrotch I suppose :)

edit: POLAND_SPUD, you're getting fast on the trigger! Impressive :)

I like it!

It has a decidedly Dragunov look to it. 8)
