My first Pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: Kris.Is.Awesome » Wed Aug 02, 2006 6:39 pm

Hey guys, I finished my first pneumatic the other day, and I've been shooting it non stop. So far, I fill up to about 50 Psi (I fill up a small air tank with our large compressor for ease), and it's pertty nice. I shoot potatoes, Ice slugs, and anyhting else that fits. It's simple and straightforward. 4' 2" SCH 40 barrel, and 4' 4" Chamber. Fills up with quick disconnect and ball valve. Fires with a ball valve. Threaded barrel and chamber.

looks good for a first pneumatic. nice and simple.

also if the ball valve is loose enough you could try a spring and pin to pull it open faster.

Dont know the range yet, I'm guessing when I pump it up to 80 PSI it will be extreme. :twisted:

HOLY crap. I just shot a bunch of lead sinkers. OH MY GOD. I DESTROYED that piece of wood. Damage pics soon. I shot a potato diagonally over the woods at 80psi. It hit the elementary school parking lot-

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

I'd say maybe 175-250 yards. I didnt mean to hit the school. I happened to be riding by and see the potato there. :]


I thought I shot it into the woods, but I guess I had a better angle.
