My First Pnuematic Paintball Spud Gun!! with VIDEO!

Unread postAuthor: akaddis » Tue Jan 16, 2007 1:40 pm

This is my first spud gun! Its powered by an air compressor and shoots paintballs. It has an electric trigger for fastest release of air flow. Its firing mechanism is Automatic at about 15bps.

WOW! 15bps! How did you get that high rate of fire on a pnumatic!

More info on the firing mechanism and the electronics please.

Here's a rough drawing of the electric firing mechanism (trigger) which is the fastest way to release air on a pneumatic gun...

Holy Crap! I've never seen any semi-auto gun like that. Nice work, keep it up.

Yeah, it's great though I think you could use a hopper. That little magazine didn't really seem to last to long.

yeah...
but first i would need to make the top of the hopper airtight so that during each fire the balls dont just move around in the barrel wasting air

second...it would mean i can use 200+ paintballs at a time...lol and they are expensive...

But I found a hopper for 3.99 at Frys Electronics so I'll get one anyway...

intresting sound in vid, but preety awesome. I wonder if you could operate that with a blow gun so you could save the valve for somthing bigger :twisted: anyways I bet it you could get away with a slant T you could make it shoot faster
