Gunstock question

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Wed Mar 25, 2009 6:57 am

I've been ( as many other ) really impressed by the cool looking of this gun:

http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/oak-gun ... 17674.html

But for me, the only small and cheap caliber that i can use are paintballs ( they are cheaper then potatos ).

Making the coaxial wont be a problem , my question is this:

Do you think that i can fit a 3/4 inch cpvc barrel coaxial on a wooden gunstock?

I will maybe have to instead think about a coaxial but in lenght or something like that.

Combustion could be an answer too.

Is it possible? Advices are welcome.

You can, but it will not look like a sniper type gun.

There is a greater dependence on the diameter of your chamber than that of your barrel.

After all, the barrel on my air rifle is 20mm outer diameter - but most of that is forward of the stock.
The body of it is the part that needs seating into the stock, and that's close to twice the same diameter.

If the chamber's diameter is inside about 50mm, you can probably manage to seat it into a stock that's not going to be uncomfortably wide.
If it isn't within that, it's going to be harder to get it to look natural.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?
