Homemade airow design

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Tue Sep 16, 2008 5:15 pm

I started to love the Airows the first time i looked at them

http://www.freewebs.com/jimler/Airow%20Gun.jpg

So i decided to make an homemade one
(its incredible what we can do with plumbing pieces)
It will be most of the parts in SCH40 PVC and i am currently thinking of an magazine system.
It will shoot Paintballs or marbles.

Upload the picture...

Comments would be apreciated :o

Well if you want to shoot some marbles or paintballs you are going to need a very strong spring.

I'm too lazy to typ my name :D . But as I looked again at your design, that tube from chamber to barrel is going to kill allot of power. Maybe you should place the chamber at the back of the barrel. But you could also place the end of the chamber at the beginning of the barrel.

It could work but probably won't work great.
Well compared to precharged air guns anyway.

Your accuracy might not be too good either, as you'll sway off target with the releaved tension when you let go of the piston.

Why not add a sear and a trigger ? ... well actualy if you were trying to make an airow I can see why you wouldn't :roll:

Keep in mind this will shoot relatively small BB's...

I am currently building it and the piston works very well. Lot of air is pushed out of it.

I upgraded it to an 2 inch piston housing and 1.25 inch piston.
