4th of July PB Gun

Unread postAuthor: noname » Wed Jul 18, 2007 1:59 pm

Thrown together for the 4th of July, this paintball gun only costed me about $5. I got the sprinkler valve for $.50 at a junkyard. The red, white and blue paintjob is oh so sexy, but I wasn't bored enough to do stars on the blue.

Credit goes to Mitchza89 for the design, it's pretty cool (his gun is cooler).

What kind of performance are you getting? And what kind of pressures are you running?

Normal pressure, 90-100 psi max. Great performance for its size, I can put a steel ball bearing through 1/2" plywood.

Looks like a fun cannon you got there, and nice job on building it so cheaply.

Not to be counterproductive, but the paintjob reminds me more of Christmas that the Fourth of July.

I wouldn't eat it though.
I might've done stars if I had stencils or stickers, but I didn't want to take the time by taping them off.

iceman, we dont generally send out plans because if you cant figure it out you shouldn't be building one, but specific questions are acceptable. Look around the forum and spud wiki to find out more, and then try construct a cannon.
