Ghetto airgun

Unread postAuthor: nadjatee1996 » Sat Jan 29, 2011 8:45 pm

JSR style...well..the epoxy part is his style xD

Image

Damage with a battery at kinda close range (2 yards?) it busted through the box behind that too and now I can't find the battery. It was on my second shot that the bottle popped. This is fired at an estimation of 35 PSI.

Image

The first Shrader valve I used, it was too short, so I had to use my longer one that my dad got for me. Note the amount of epoxy on it. Because of what I thought was a leak, this isn't the first coat of epoxy, this was the third. (Other two was sawed off with Dremel, a pain in the butt.)

Image

Looking down the makeshift sights xD

Image

The busted bottle

Image

The support I had to add because I ran out of epoxy, its .5 in PVC cut in half and taped

Image

The hose+valve+part of the barrel+part of the support. The epoxy on the bottom is because I thought there was a leak there, I gotta cut it with my Dremel now.

Image

The whole shebang

wow does that ever look sketchy!
I'd at least use a soda bottle to reduce the chances of it bursting, but personally i wouldn't go near that thing, i doubt the handle can take much pressure

Sadly, this is all I got,so cut me a little slack, willya? I'm switching that bottle out for a soda bottle as soon as I can. I'm buying a proper blow gun trigger ASAP as well. Also, the hose thing is fine, its all right and won't break anytime soon

Well with a fresh coat of paint and a wooden stock this will....probably still be very ghetto.

I wouldn't want that anywhere near me.

There, worse than Rickrolling. :P :D

Actually, it doesn't look as bad as I expected :)

2 or 3 litre soda bottle can safely be taken to 100 psi or so without blowing up, and gives you the possibility of more than one shot per fill.

I ran out of epoxy


I'm not surprised :D

That photo is so bad that his photography deserves better. Here is a better photo of the award you can be proud of.
