What is the second blow gun for? Under the Nerf Ball.

It looks pretty good from what I can see but like LikimysCrotchus5 said, why are there 2 blow guns?

My guess would be that the second blowgun is there just for another handle. Probably with the guts ripped out of it.

I spent more time trying to get this in jpeg format that drawing it!
Not quite but I am stilling trying to get a better picture of this.
Any ideas?


try downloading paintshopv4, its free and easy to download. To convert something just upload a pic in it then click file>save as and save as a jpeg.

Ok so its not a blowgun its a handle...cool!!

Looking good, why are you using a reducer and not a bushing? Most reducers aren't pressure rated.

Though i'm aware you can find the odd pressure rated one, so i'm just checking with you.

Looks good. it would certainly be a gun I would want to shoot. Although that front handle looks pretty far forward, have you measured it out to make sure you will be able to hold that front handle comfortably when firing? Or do you plan on holding it somewhere else and taking it off your shoulder to reload?

Very nice, and with that valve it should be quite impressive even at low pressure.

No problem :) love the reloading mechanism by the way, with some on-board CO2 and a magazine it would make a nice grenade launcher type device.
