Pnuematic Rifle .50cal

Unread postAuthor: pocket » Fri Jul 11, 2008 3:25 pm

Ok so a while back i created a pneumatic spud gun that was more or less the most simplest cannon you could make with 1/2 " copper barrel and 2" ABS chamber with a simple 1/2" ball valve it has been sitting in my closet with no use because ive gotten more advanced and had no need so i decided to convert it into a rifle so i made a stock, silencer, sight and it works well, and trigger system unfortunately i couldn't make it into a breech loader because i was a nub back then. the projectiles are going 250fps with the ball bearing that is 5/8ths the "armor piercing round (pfff more like cardboard piercing) and the lead cored wax bullet go 495fps (keepin her legal) at 125 PSI it can go strait threw 1/4" ply and barely touch the 1/2" ply. if your wondering about the silencer its the same "k" baffle system they use in real silencers um i think Jack made a how to type thing of it

Looks interesting. Although there's no overall view. So I can't really see much of anything.
Perhaps you could convert it to a piston valved shooter.

BTW, [quote]..."lol by the way those are DC shoes cost 160"
Right on!!! It's a requirement on here to photo atleast one shoe. Man you got it and you weren't even wearing them! :P

When you said you shoot squirrels and doves, even if it is legal, you are not allowed to discuss it, if I were you, before a mod sees it, change that part or Mr.C will probably lock it, or change it himself. And apart from that good job, and can you get a picture of the full gun?

Discussion of shooting any animals with a homemade rifle/gun/cannon or what ever, is not allowed on this forum whether it is legal or not.

Yes, as long as you did it in the Non-Spudgun Related Discussion section, you used a store-bought or custom/commercial rifle and there was a point behind the topic. Not just saying 'I went hunting last year and shot some moose, has anyone else been hunting?'.

Meh...I think you're being too kind, Crowley. I mean, sure, hunting is a sport, but think about the animal...that's cruelty. It's like me going to your house while you're eating breakfast and just shooting you with a gun.

I know but hunting is legal, it's not against the site rules and we've had topics about it before. Of course the author has to give the topic a warning in the title to stop any unsuspecting members coming across a page filled with shot up deer and moose.

Back on-topic now :)

How in the world did you end up paying 160 for a pair of DC's? Is this in USD? I mean, I saw those on zappos.com for 80? Anywho, do you got a zoomed out pic of the gun? It looked good from what I saw but I couldn't see the whole thing. :/
