paintball cannon

Unread postAuthor: dippydodo03 » Mon Feb 05, 2007 3:17 pm

this is my first spud gun. I'm going to use it in paintball soon.(i hope)

it is a very basic design. it has a 3''x2' chamber, a 2'' ball valve, and a 4' long, 1 1/2 inch diameter barrel.

I have shot a D battery through eighth inch ply wood and over 200 yards. it is small but it packs a huge punch.

at 120 psi, this thing shot d cell batteries farther than my gun, which has a 1" sprinkler valve. other than that , it is the exact same, but with a smaller c:b ratio.

we've had some fun with this sucker.

oh, nothing.

It is against forum rules to shoot at any living thing (plants excluded)

paintball and airsoft are excluded, though.

I hate to quote the rules but:

Discussion of shooting anything at any person and/or animal is prohibited, and may result in a permanent banning of your account.
The exception to this rule is for proper use of legal airsoft and/or paintball markers.

You can discuss shooting people as long as its using a proper paintball marker, not a homemade one. As they tend to be alot more powerful and can really hurt someone.

Oh and that reducer is DWV unless you have one of those rare pressure rated ones I saw on SGTC

Yeah, but if you put a solenoid valve on it you'll get huge FPS increase.
