Paint Ball Sniper

Unread postAuthor: iamthewalrus » Sat Apr 09, 2005 11:31 pm

This is my 3rd gun, first one with a sprinkler valve (insane improvement from ball valves :D ). it'll blast a paintball about 75-100yrds with strong wind at about 50psi, i've only shot a tree in my backyard and a skate board, i hit the skateboard from about 20yards at 20psi and hit it dead on with force. i just resantly tryed one of its other barrels (the co2 barrel) and shot through a piece of 1/2" plywood at about 90psi, my friend got a kick out of it. i also shot a trash can lid at 50psi and put a huge dent in it. i havent got around to testing the c-cell battery barrel yet, but i'll inform u of the power if i do. i'll prolly paint it later(idk what color) and make a "barrel extension". The pic that shows all the other barrels. from top to bottom they go: C-cell, AA, Co2(shot through plywood at 85psi), and Paintball (Primary). i fill the gun with a bike pump actually because it takes way to long to fill with my 12v, i need to get a compressor. but the pump actually fills quite well, i got to about 80psi in like 30 pumps, a lot faster then my 12v.

i'll gladly take other suggestions or questions.

I'll try and get more pictures soon. hope u like it as much as i do.

Don't host it on Tripod, upload it here (you see under your post how you can add an attachment if you hit "Add Reply").

I love PVC rockets for 3/4 barrels. Get a 1/2 inch PVC pipe and flare it the add a LITTLE wieght to it. They fly way better than paintballs. My cuz has one and can shoot cats that are 5o yards away. Rockets are very accurate.

You should have made your air chamber bigger. If you have more air and pressure your projectile will go alot farther. If i were you i would put it up to 120psi. That is the best psi that i shot paintballs with. They dont explode and they fly farther. Put dents in sheets of tin at 80 yards. POWERFUL! If air ever leaks out of you threads then put plumbers putty on the threads. It would way better than tape. I little can of plumbers putty goes along way. Very little is needed for threads.

my chamber is plenty big, i dented some sheet metal on my uncles farm form about 30yrds at 80psi. i did pump it up to 110psi the other day, it didnt do a whole lot more then 80psi. and i dont need to be shooting 80yrds considering i live in the city and i just shoot st trees in my backyard. also i use apoxy that is pressure rated for over 800psi instead of plumbers putty.
