New Damage pics! Gun Teaser

Unread postAuthor: jitup » Fri Dec 26, 2008 7:40 pm

Hello, I have a few damage pics of my new gun I have been working on!
I am not ready to list the gun yet (it needs paint) so I will spare many of the details. both of these pics are from a single shot. I was about 10 to 20 feet away (it is hard to aim, any suggestions on how to make sights would be nice) It has plenty of power to spare. I now give you the proof :P :twisted: :D

Any guess on what type of a valve this gun uses? it is home made

EDIT these shots were taken at around 120 psi
Also I fired a 1 inch potato slug (1 inch dia barrel)

nope, it is a variation of a diaphram, I will reveal soon after digi cammo paint job is done. It is quite a cool gun, that doubles as an air horn if you fire it empty. (it does not make near the amount of noise while firing)

Look at my edit. I am using potatos, 1 inch in dia.

A diaphragm? You dont see many of those around.

I wonder how good the flow of the thing is.
And whats the variation?

psyix, all will be revealed soon enogh. I am working on a simple way to paint digi cammo, and after I finish it will be added.

I know the flow is d/4 without any pressure and it is open. so it would be 1/4 inch.(I designed it to be so) I do not know if it holds that far open after being pressurized and piloted. It is quite a unique piece and I think you will all enjoy it.
