Basic Paintball Rifle

Unread postAuthor: Cubman » Wed May 09, 2007 4:48 pm

I saw this cannon on Burntlatke, and decided I wanted something similiar:
Image

The chamber is made of 2" sch 40, and uses two couplings, one repair coupling, two 45* elbows, and two 3/4" male adapters. The entire chamber is double walled, so it should hold up to lots of pressure.
The barrel is 3/4" CPVC, and is 21.5" long. My C:B ratio is around 3.125:1. The barrel was 33.5" long, but I plugged the #'s into GGDT, and it said the barrel was unneccesarily long. It cut the barrel down, and now the gun seems to honk when I fire it. I'll search for a fix pretty soon.

Here is a picture from the build stage:

Here is the completed rifle:

It's pretty comfortable, actually. I like being able to look straight down the barrel.

Simple, yet effective. Always nice. Have you cansitered putting a scope on it? Just a suggestion, I thought it would look nicer that way.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.
how'd u stick the blowgun tho?

I just used one hose clamp. I had two, but the other one prevented the blowgun's lever from going all the way down.
Have you cansitered putting a scope on it?

It isn't nearly accurate enough to require a scope, but it would look cool.
try using a 1/3 ball valve

I'm using the blowgun because I don't think I could aim very accurately while twisting a ball valve. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I would eventually like to try a bolt-action barrel. Using a ramrod to load every paintball is time consuming and gets old quick.
