first pneumatic gun

Unread postAuthor: nsane-spuds » Mon Jun 19, 2006 5:24 pm

Hi im 14 and i am kind of new to all these spud guns, but i think i managed to make a quite cool pneumatic gun..
Hope you will like it. ;)

I used 1.5 inch tubing for the air resevoir and a 3 eight of an inch copper tubing for the barrel, it's quite small...
I also placed a gage at the top, i'm able to bring to 85psi with a manual pump.

I think i could call that a miny.

For your first cannon, it's very cool! It's very clean, and the asthetics are great.

What do you shoot out of it?

Once gain, amazing cannon... I think I need to stop building big things and make myself a mini like that, lol.

Wow that looks suprisingly advanced for being so small andhaving a ball valve, I know it's a very basic gun but it looks really cool to me, Great first post and first pneumatic... It would be much better with a sprinkler valve, but that's kind of overkill for a beginers first... My first pneumatic (which I made 6-16-06 [3 days ago :D ]) had a sprinkler valve, but I've been planning it for a long time....

You've set good standards for yourself already by using real grammer, hope to see you more :lol:

please tell me thats not ABS, hopefully its painted PVC. really, its a good idea to tap fittings through a place where 2 layers of PVC overlap rather than the middle of the fitting or the middle of the pipe, good work for a first timer, you should upgrade to a better valve, that ball valve isnt giving you the best performance

It looks like Sch 80 PVC or Sch 40 painted with Black Krylon Fusion.... If this ABS throw it away, charging it over and over will cause it fail and blow an arm off...

How do you rape screws in tape? :lol:


That's very nice for a first pneumatic and a very cool looking gun, It would be better if it didn't have a ball valve, but it's not worth buying a sprinkler valve for that small of a gun if your not going to make a bigger gun....

By the way, if an ABS chamber were to fail it wouldn't blow an arm off.

Lol, It's fun to be overly dramatic and scare people, they need to learn...

A DWV Cellular Core PVC is way more dangerous than ABS actually becaus PVC is brittle and would screw you up if it failed while ABS chunks would just fly out (it wouldn't splinter, just bust and some chunks flying)
