What are some Fun Accessories?

Unread postAuthor: TheTrooper » Thu Dec 06, 2007 11:57 pm

Hey what are some fun accessories someone could add to my pneumatic? I'm think along the lines of handles and stuff, but other ideas are open.
Also post some of the accessories you have made to your own pneumatic.

Have a look >>here<< for starters - you can have the blowgun properly connected to the sprinkler valve to give you an ergonomic trigger, a cheap red dot sight, a lick of paint, maybe even a bipod and moderator.

Depleted uranium discarding-sabot rounds? But seriously, a laser sight, it'd be especially nifty if you could rig it to be adjustable for distance.

Note the keyword "rig" in my statement. You could get a cheap laser pointer, put it in a clamp and find a way to attach it to the barrel and make it swivel up and down.

Once more, jack saves the day with a link from his seemingly never-ending repertoire of... links. Seriously jack, do you just scan through every page on the internet and archive them by subject, date and humorous content? Seems like you have one for every occasion.

Oh I just knew you'd come up with some witty image or site to visit. Jack, you never cease to amaze me. But yes, laser sight would be cool. I've also been thinking about getting a decent powered green pointer and sticking it on my paintball gun. After modding it to run on a switch that would be placed closer to my hand of course. Can't have a bright green laser ruining the effect of a ghillie suit.

Eddbot, I hate to go off topic in a random fashion like this, but do you actually know the significance of your profile image?

I do my research almost exclusively online, the internet is a wonderful tool, you just have to know how to look. A bit like this forum really.

I believe he created it for the purposes of this thread ;)

edit: Trooper, it wouldn't hurt to resize your images before posting.

That's my madness there in that there avatar image...

I have a strong suspicion that JSR has created a truly intelligent search engine that knows exactly what it's looking for - and I'm sure he's programmed it to say "Sorry Dave, I can't do that" when it can't find any results.
