Pneumatic Panzerschreck (Work In Progress)

Unread postAuthor: kydavies » Fri Mar 09, 2012 12:43 am

It's been a while since I've been been on here and even longer since I've posted. But here is my latest project (still a work in progress), a pneumatic Panzerschreck 54 (i know its about a foot to short). Please ignore the tape above the valve (a seam in the 3" sleeve) and on the shoulder rest as i ran out of 3" hose clamps and the exposed blowgun in the handle. Also a detachable shield and a coat of paint are in the works.

Barrel: 2"x30" Sch 40
Chamber: 2"x15" Sch 40
Valve: modded sprinkler valve (Hunter SRV)
structure: 1" flatstock Al

I realize there are a lot of little things you guys will nit pick about but it's a panzeschreck and the best one I've seen.

Looking good! With a lick of paint it should be very convincing from a distance :)

thanks guys.
jackssmirkingrevenge, I'm undecided about the paint job but I want to stay as true to the original as possible so maybe a ligh olive green with some brown patches?

CooperJS, I forgot to put the valve size in my original post :shock: anyways it a 1" modded sprinkler. and a link to where or what? (its been a while since i've been on here)

again, thanks but it might be a few weeks before anything else gets done, college takes precedence.

Towards the end of the war they came in many colours, so probably anything you choose will do :)

I took it out into the middle of nowhere and got some pretty decent results with chinese oranges and a plastic bag sabot. I would estimate about 200m - 250m :) and thanks to google earth one of our lower pressure shots (at a different location) went about 150m :)
