One of my Pneumatics

Unread postAuthor: landoklr250 » Sat Apr 07, 2007 9:37 am

This was my first pneumatic. Ive got muzzleloader sights on it and its very accurite with the 3/4" barrel. At 120 psi I can put a hole through a hairspray can 50 feet away. I also have a 1/2" barrel for .44 caliber pistol bullets. They do a lot of damage. I havent chronographed it but its probably going over 1000 fps.

Wow you cannon looks like the chamber to barrel ratio is like 1 to 1 straight up. Nice looking build. You have any video's to post? Would love to see some. 1000 fps is a lot, for real!

1000 fps is a lot for a sprinkler- unless you used nonames super modding method.

That one gun that shot the watermelon( yes i know that one gun) was only at 900 fps.

now i remember its mr wilson.

A very original and interesting gun. I have never see a gun that utilized the butt of the rifle (stock? I can't remember right now) as the chamber.
1000 fps? It can be done, though I don' know if your gun can. Well, there's only one way to find out.

quite a few have used the chamber as the stock, but i havent seen any using 2 45º's to drop the stock so that you can look down the barrel. ive been contemplating doind that for a while, how well does it work?

looks good for your first gun, and it looks pretty powerfull.

Nice gun lando.I assume you shoot those .44 caliber balls out of a 1/2"CPVC barrel?Damage pics please.
A-98,I did a stock like this on my first paintball cannon the dropped stock and barrel level with the eye works out great.As close to shooting a rifle as you can get.

pyromaniac is right, the gun that shot the water melon was only 906fps, and it was a piston operated gun. Some people think that gun can't evan do that, they think its was the air from the blast that the chrony was reading at 900fps.

Nice!!!!! you should get a telescopic sight for it. Walmart sells a pretty nice one along with scope rings for a fairly low price (30 bucks) and it will be alot of fun.......... plus, you should make some blowgun darts for that and shoot them at 100 PSI. if you thoguth blowguns were powerful and accurate.........

nice gun, but I highly HIGHLY doubt that any sprinkler gun can shoot at 1000 fps.
