my new little shotgun

Unread postAuthor: mister pointy » Mon Jul 21, 2008 8:19 pm

I made this little gun about a month ago, just haven't gotten around to posting it. I use it to shoot paintballs and airsoft pellets and whatever else i can fit into it.


There's not a lot new going on here with this gun.
2 inch diameter chamber and 1.5 inch barrel.
1 inch modified irritol sprinkler valve.

It uses cartridges made from 1.5'' pvc which fit in between two couplers. The breach is held together by friction. It usually doesn't open unless i'm using very heavy ammo, or the pressure goes above 100 psi.

My only problem with this little guy is i need to make a better barrel support, other than that it's a fun little plinker.

Nice, You should paint it though, and add a foregrip.
@FishBoy, yes, they are just as easy, And in fact, the 3/4 inch and 1 inch valve tops are the same size, you could use a 3/4 inch valve top on a 1 inch one.

EDIT- VH_MAN BEAT ME TOO IT.
