My first Pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: homedepotpro » Tue Nov 28, 2006 12:12 am

this is my first time building a pneumatic. I have aready built a combustion and i was bothered by the lack of control i had over the propelent. i picked up the parts at home depot and they didn't have all the ones i wanted but i got what they had and i put it to getter and it shoot great. my barrel is 1''x42'' and 2''x20, the chamber is 2''x3' and i have a 1'' modded sprinkler valve.

Name and a paint job is all that is needed now. Good job, planing on any more barrels for it? You working at homedepot pro? Just got that idea from your member name. You shooting spuds or have something else you would like to share??? We are allways after new ammo ideas, post more about it, how far it's shooting at what pressures? Any damage pics are allways fun to look at.

I agree - names are essential.

It's nice, but looks very long. Almost 7 feet? But if that works for you, then I won't complain.

You've obviously done some research into it, so that's good. Welcome to the pneumatic club.
