Beneficial coincidences

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Sat May 31, 2008 5:20 pm

I found some .625 blowgun darts online. I later found that they fit in 1/2" electrical conduit. I later found that 1/2" electrical conduit fits in a paintball barrel I have.

So I figured if I crank up the velocity on my pb gun, I'll have a little weapon that packs quite a punch.

Problem: Fixing the conduit inside barrel means I'll have to muzzleload. That takes time and it's a pain in my ass. Especially when I might need a quick followup shot (to.. uhh... make sure that soda can is definitely dead)

Got any ideas for a simple breechloader? I would like to avoid cutting a groove out of the barrel and making a "bolt-action" design. I don't have the means to cut it neatly. If it's not neat, I don't bother. That's my OCD. I like quick-disconnects. I also like the idea of a revolver mechanism.

Are you talking about a homemade paintball gun or a proper one?

If you are talking about the former, I do have an idea of what you could do. I'll show you when I post my new cannon today, easier to explain it.

That's what I would suggest, if you have a Tippmann you could buy a stock barrel for a bt-4 combat (8" long) for less than 10 dollars (probably).

I have a paintball gun and I want to make it fire premade, .625 blowgun darts. I'm asking how to breechload it. (I don't want to have to muzzleload it.)

I have the dart barrel already. It fits perfectly inside my paintball gun's barrel... like a sleeve.

I didn't realize the typo in my original post.

hmm...well I guess if you want to keep on unscrewing it and screwing it (no pun intended) then you have a breech loader.lol. But it seems that right now, muzzle loading looks like your only way

wow is there any connection to the cannon i just posted firing .625 darts? btw if you would like something that slites into the barrel of the blowgun 1/2 inch copper works quite well for this, thats what i used on my dart bolt action.

NICE!!

I didn't think of 1/2" copper. Might have to give that a try.

So the darts are accurate? That's even better.
