Profs marble sniper (as seen at spudshot.com)

Unread postAuthor: ProfessorAmadeus » Fri Dec 22, 2006 1:24 pm

This is my marble gun. It was used in the wall of doom ( http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5330& ) and for the damage and also in the accurate marble ammo how to ( http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5316& ). It has a 2 inch by 1 1/2 foot chamber and a 3 foot 1/2inch barrel. Its breech loading but the breach doesnt seal. I really need to paint it but here it is. The pictures are in no perticular order.

Everyone else hates me because my guns are so much more awesomer then theirs :D Oh and for the barrel shoud it took me about an hour and a half of measuring and drawing strait lines. You have to start out by drawing a x on one end of the pipe.

Image

Then look down the pipe and draw a point that lines up strait with a point on the x. Now get a ruler and a connect the 2 lines together. Measure out the distance that you wont your holes to be at and put dots there.Now do it 3 more times and your done!

Well you dont make an X on the other end of the pipe. You make a mark half way down the pipe.

Image

then you draw a strait line connecting those 2 lines. Its hard to explain without you being here.

I have used one before and I touched it down to the metal and almost ripped out of my hands. That was when I was 11 though. It reminds me of the time when I was 8 and my dad let me shoot his .22 pistol. I didnt know what blow back was and put my thumb on the side that moves back and forth when you fire. I shot it and when It moves back forward it ripped my skin off with it. It hurt soo bad.

Hey, I have all this 1/2'' pipe laying around in my garage, I think its for making a mosquito net frame or something. I wonder if I can talk my dad into letting me use that :?
Hey I just found out these little ball bearings from this magnetic thing my sisters have fits perfectly in it.
