.50 Cal Fire Extinguisher Airgun

Unread postAuthor: Mecke » Wed Aug 10, 2011 7:49 am

Hey!

Alright, this is like my third airgun but it is the first little bit more serious one;)

I´m an 15 year old boy from sweden and my english sucks so you surely notices some wrong spells ;)

I dont got any video so i post some pics instead ;)

I shoot at 8 bar, and the reason for that is my weak compressor

Here´s an adapter so i can use a Pump instead of a compressor, it fitts perfectly!
Image

I just snap it on and connect a normal pump ;)
Image

I would be very grateful if you guys could give me any tips for improving my airgun ;)

And which color i can paint it ;)

Very nice, looks like you get quite a lot of shots per fill, the only thing I can suggest is tidy it up a little, like take off the zip ties and stuff. Good job :thumbleft:

Great gun, especially for a 15 year old. I agree with pipeboyswe, paint it black, looks like it means buisness.

I think it may be just me, but the pictures are messed up, and have different lines all across it varying colors and widths.

With the bits that I did see though, it looks excellent. Good job!

It's just you :P

Pretty clean build, not too ghetto. Would benefit from a better valve though.

It actualy dont cost me much, i went to the fire department if i spelled it right ;) and asked for one, and they gave me this one for free ;) so this project dont cost me much, just for some valves that i dont got at home ;) so in the end i think i payed like 20$ 8)

I dont got much damage pics, better something than nothing :wink:
