duck tape paintball sniper

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Thu Mar 26, 2009 10:09 am

Here is my paintball sniper, and here are some specs:

valve: spring loaded 1/4 inch brass ballvalve

barrel : sdr11 cpvc pipe( ideal for paintballs )

chamber: 3/4 inch per 1 feet

This is a really accurate and comfortable sniper, when i shoot far, i can clearly see the paintball falling down to earth by following the vertical line of my scope(wich is a 20 $ 4x one). I can get a pretty stable shooting compared to my other snipers due to its comfortable handle and stock.

Here are some pics ( i shooted from 15 feet ) :

How long did it take to put that together? Easy to see why you named it. :D

For a duct tape gun, this actually looks pretty decent, I love those kind of guns that look like anyone could build them in an afternoon and have a lot of fun with it.

May I ask where you got the idea for the trigger mech? because it looks very familiar... :D

I got my idea from some youtube videos and of my brain. I never sawed this picture before, but other that where pretty much looking to that.

( If you look, on each spring ball valve, the mechanism is almost the same )

Edit: I have to get that sort of valve ( the one in the pic ) , it got a way much smaller "lever".

You should replace the duct tape, really.
Then shape the stock a little bit rounder and it will look very neat.

That looks a little..duct tapey but I'm sure it's a great gun to shoot with. Why not mix up some papier mache or resin and make it look nice and smooth, then paint it? I'm sure you could get a great result.

Cool enough anyway

You should glue it up, and paint it.

Oh, and its duct, not duck.

Mostly, yes. However, there is a brand that sells it called "Duck" - so in some cases, it's correct either way.
