I'm actually planning something like this, I am trying to find the absolute maximum range of an airsoft bb. After that I will probably make a mutishot rifle powered by c02 powerlets for actual skirmish use.

I'm interested in seeing how the performance on this will be, Just a tip from experience in my fully upgraded bar-10, If you are going to be using .43 gram bb's, I would reccomend some goldenball .43 gram bbs they next to digicon .43's are the best .43's out there.

I have some madbull .43 g bbs with their madbull 6.03 barrel.

Are their bb's ok?

Now i have to try to make the trigger mechanism work... its gonna be a P.I.T.A as i have very poor metal cutting tools ... but i will get it done.

I plan (when i would be major) To actually make a real high power rifle charged by a high pressure hand pump (3000 psi) and shoot .50 or .45 to get some real range (800 m maybe?) then register it to be fully legal ...
Pretty much like sandman.

UPDATE

pfuu...

Here is an update of where i am in my project, it goes pretty well aside from the fact that i lack of proper tools, the part that looks like a split in two cylinder took me 2 hours ... with an hacksaw and then grinded a few millimeters ...

This is just the "frame" (the trigger is not done yet nor the valve rod, but it is not that long to make)

Just to show that i am actually engaged in this and not thinking of an other canon again (its kinda hard to)

Blaa....

Note the bunch of tools lying on the ground and on the table ( actually, only half of the tools are shown, all my grandp'as and the dremel + toolboxes are under the table ...)

You know for lack of better tools, that is some exceptional work!! However, I think those are all the tools you need for this hobby.

That must have taken a lot of work!

I hope you can afford a mill soon.

The reason to all this might be that i dont have a very big social life :roll:

NEW PICS

Tadaaaa!
I now need to make the trigger

( I wont hide to you that i actually runned like James bond with the "pistol" to get to the computer 8) )

Acually, if i placed a 3 way valve on the trigger and a 12g co2 cartidge in the handle, i could had got a nice semi automatic pistol !

But i will stick to the carbine design ...
