Redneck's Plinkers

Unread postAuthor: rednecktatertosser » Wed Jul 09, 2008 10:52 pm

So today I was poking around my garage, and found a bin of small brass parts, a short length of 1/4" brakeline, and some blowguns. naturally, I decided to try and throw something together.

These were the results. One is a 4.5mm plinker and the other is a 6mm plinker.

Enjoy!

Looks like some quick thrown together fun. Can I assume you're using a compressor connection for power? What psi are you shooting with?

That it is my friend!

No, I'm actually using a shock pump that I bought awhile back and never had a use for. Pressure range is 200-350 psi.

the shot that stuck in my wall was at 350 psi.

Probably should have said that in the original post but oh well.

If you get a piece of lamp pipe (in lamp parts section of home depot), Or take apart a lamp, the pipe threads match the nozzle threads if your blow nozzle.

An ID 1/4" brass pipe fits snugly into the lamp pipe.
Also, the lamp pipe (OD 3/8") fits into 1/2" round stock pipe from the hardware section. And 1/2" copper T's fit the round stock for making magazines.
Also a 1/2" brass T can be drilled slightly with a 1/2" drill bit and will fit. 8)
