Pneumatic dart rifle by Reedfe

Unread postAuthor: reedfe » Sat Mar 06, 2010 5:01 pm

Simple pneumatic gun with a modded 1" Orbit Watermaster.
Specs*
Vavle: Modded Sprinkler piloted by blowgun
Barrel: Interchangeable 3/4" (about 4') and 1" (about 2') PVC
Chamber: About 2 ft. of 1 1/2" PVC (I am aware of the DWV :D )

I've pressurized it above 75 psi and no explosions yet. I can penetrate Gun Freak's Speed limit 30 sign.

Full Paint Job coming soon.

Whole gun w/ both barrels (1" attached):

The space shuttle worked the last time they launched it, it should be OK...

Lolz my camera is messed up. Yes it was my camera... not Reedfe's... lol.
The darts are wine corks with a nail in them. We put a point in the cork and shave them down to size with my bench grinder. They explode upon impact :D

Looks good. I like the look of the chamber, though it sux that it's dwv...
Just remember, even though it didn't explode yet doesn't mean that it can't. Like nasa's challenger shuttle... It went on many successful missions and then on one reentry it just exploded. Wouldn't want to see any fellow spudgunners faces reconfigured.

Still I like how the chamber looks.

ya i've put it up to 75 but i'm not gonna do any more than 60 psi now.

-edit-

plus i'm not so sure i wanna rebuild the chamber AGAIN... might have too though.
i've already rebuilt the sprinkler valve and chamber so i'm kinda tired of rebuilding. i went to a hardware store and asked for some pressure rated fittings and he gave me dwv. i realized that after i built and painted the chamber. i trusted the guy... i'm so stupid

Reed you don't need a longer barrel. And coupling together would just make it less accurate. BTW, don't double post :D
