Gort's Mini Golf Baller

Unread postAuthor: sgort87 » Mon Aug 21, 2006 3:00 pm

So here's a cute little gun I tossed together for golf balls - <b>The Mini Golf Baller:</b>

<a href="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB1.JPG"><img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB1s.JPG"></a>
<a href="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB2.JPG"><img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB2s.JPG"></a><a href="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB3.JPG"><img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/uploader/uploadFiles/MiniGB3s.JPG"></a>
(Click on em.)

It's nothing much. Just a 3/4" QEV from mcmaster, 1.5" Sch40 chamber, 1.5" SDR barrel, schrader fill valve, blowgun trigger, safety pop-off, 0-160 psi guage. The 2" Sch80 section slides forward for breech-loading golf balls.

It isn't all that powerful, but it sure as hell beats a sprinkler valve gun and is doesn't make any of the noise those peices of crap make. It gets about 10 seconds of hangtime. It is consistent, easy to use, and looks rather nice. My 11 and 8 year old sisters use this gun all the time.

Here's a small <a href="http://media.putfile.com/MiniGB"><b>video</b></a> of me shooting off a few golf balls.

im amazed at how fast you can fill that with the compressor. ha if your into paintball you could possibly put a different barrel on it and use it in wars. nice job overall.

Thanks guys.

The QEV can be found on McMaster.com for $20.10

There is no seal between the SDR and the 2" Sch80 pipe. It is such a good fit by itself and does not leak significantly. In fact, I cannot even feel a breeze from it when firing.

Yeah, it fills real fast. It makes things so nice.

Paint jobs are for hiding mistakes. I don't see any here. :P

Yeah I know, I paint a lot of my things to add flavor, but I like this one the way it is. And this is going to be a display for my online store soon to come.

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

Yes, I plan to make 2" porting valves, maybe bigger.

While we are discussing this topic, what else would you guys like to see on there?
