My newest throw together gun

Unread postAuthor: goathunter » Wed Apr 11, 2007 8:47 pm

Nothing special.Just a 1 1/4"piston valve gun and a 3/4" barrel.This thing amounted to a evenings worth of work.I have a 1/2" barrel to go along that fires darts and lead balls.This has to be the junkiest looking gun I've ever made!The tank is from an old gun that I disassembled.

The paint fell off of my old gun(didn't use krylon) so I scrapped the chamber and put it on this one. And work it does.

It doesn't look junkie from the photo. If you whack a bit of paint on it and put a trigger on the blow gun then it would look pretty good.

Yeah I took off the trigger to keep it from going off when I picked it up. It had a habit of going off prematurely.I'm gonna put a stopper on the pin to make it easier on the finger.

I seriously doubt it is sgort's valve.I've never seen his.I just built a simple piston in a tee.May I ask why it is an insult?

I actually like the look of the gun... sure, the chamber needs to be painted, but after that, its a pretty damn nice looking cannon.

I like the valve too. Do you own a lathe? How did you secure the back plug to the valve? It looks like you solvent welded it and added screws...

Glad everyone approves.I'll paint it later today.
rmich,I do own a lathe.The back plug is a 1 1/4" plug that I lathed down and cut off so it would fit tight and be short enough that the piston could move back.The stuff on the back is pipe sealant(it had a couple small leaks).The screws hold the plug in.
