3rd pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: dudeman508 » Tue Jan 06, 2009 7:37 pm

This is my 3rd pneumatic, i built it a LONG time ago and i just never got to posting it. The first was a bv gun and the next was a worse version of this but this is the only one im posting. I run it at 120psi, the barrel is 2ft and i use 1in. long half in brass nipples with wadding and spuds as the primary ammo. I also have BB shot gun shells and hot glue rounds.

That actually looks pretty good in terms of ergonomics and simplicity.

But using half inch nipples as ammo? waste of money if you ask me.

I think with just maybe an adjustment of the stock is all that would be needed to really crank up the functionality.

Not really a wast of money becouse i dont have much room to shoot so they are easy to recover, i buy 5 and i can use them for months. And if you think thats ergonomic just wait until my burst disk gun is done :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I like the stock! Did you make it, or salvage it from something? Looks cool 8)

This gun looks good to me.
Only one recommendation:
Shorten the hose to the blowgun.
This is just extra pilot volume and will slow opening times.
Make the hose as short as possible for more power.

I salvaged the stock from an old airsoft gun and I was happy to find that a 1/2in. pipe fit in it perfectly.
