(NEW PICS)schmanman's sniper rifle

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Thu Jan 11, 2007 5:38 pm

ok, well, it is my bb rifle, but with a different chamber (bigger actually), a stock (obviously), a scope, and a longer barrel, sleeved to make it look better, be stronger, and straighten out the barrel. I will soon be increasing the porting to 3/8 inch, and I am trying a lighter piston design. not that it needs it, it is just fun to experiment.

well, here it is! if it looks a little crooked and stuff, it is because these pics were taken at an angle. Click pics for bigger, clearer images

another pic, from a little different angle

the sleeved barrel

the stock

a bad pic, looking through the scope (I forgot to take the caps off either end, and that hose clamp is now bent out of sight.

Yeah but all of your stuff you make looks like it was laying in a damp dirty room or buried for a while.

what is weird about it? i will go take some pics from right above it tomorrow, that don't make it look weird. :D


wow, people are so kind
my stuff? It is stored in a barn, dumb a**. :evil: :x

not only that, it was 45* outside today, so the snow is melting, and it is damp out, and the floor is dirt. what was the point of that comment anyway. look at the swat thread, and then tell me that it looks like it was damp and dirty looking. :wink:

Like your workspace...looks like mine.

The stock has some wierd angles, making it look...well...weird.

THe first elbow down from the blowgun should really be a 45 degree .

Anyway..it looks like a fun experimental SMOOTHBORE, as some may say..

well, I got the wrong part, a 3/8 inch 45* fitting, not 1/4 inch. I will fix that once I have a chance to go to home depot. the stock is actually very comfortable, and this thing is really quite accurate, easy to aim, and fun to shoot.

looks like the stock is comfortable? It fits the contour of my shoulder very well.

the scope was 16 bucks at wal-mart, conveniently located next to home depot. :D

You tried something new, wich is always nice!
I'm confident you'll figure out the stock.
The placement of the chamber kicks ass!
It resembles a real rifle because of it.


Once you get the right elbow to fix that awkward stock, try to get the upper part of the stock lower than the barrel, to have a better line of sight.
It will probably improve the looks as well.

You are on the right track!!

cool! hmm, to get the stock level.... that will be easy, but the barrel being level would look cool too. 45 degree elbows, two of 'em! that should work, and I well encase them in a oval piece of aluminum by the barrel, you will see what I mean. the aluminum will be regular thin wall pipe, but flattened a bit. it will give it the "pump action" look. should I paint it black?
