My Pneumatic...work in Progress

Unread postAuthor: carl2.0 » Sun Jan 06, 2008 5:44 pm

Ok guys its been a while since I posted anything here...lol a lil unusual because I ask alot of questions. In that time if been busy putting together my pneumatic rifle and building a housing for it to give it that real rifle feel

Its a
Single shot rifle made from a modded 3/4 toro valve with a 0.75 caliber bolt action barrel

the rifle itself works well im pleased with the little toro's performance...but the gun has a few issues with accuracy right now

The bolt action system is still not complete because this damn housing is quite a task to get right such that evrything slots into place.
Any way check out the preview pics tell me wat u think

Looks pretty good to me, are you planning on painting the stock?
It would look even better if you were to make up a fake scope for it too.
I'll give it 6.5/10 now, if painted it would earn an extra point :P
What pressures are you using?

America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

Looking very good (does your thumb fit in that stock though?), if you manage to sand it down neatly and paint it you'll have one of the smartest and most ergonomic rifles on this forum :)
