Ghetto thunder

Unread postAuthor: Proxywars » Wed Jan 25, 2012 11:40 pm

I finally made it. It's very ghetto but very powerful. It can shoot threw my fence with a AA battery wrapped in duct tape. P.S. I found a leak so i'll make the video tomorrow.

it looks pretty good but i think you should mod it to a sprinkler valve..more powerful than ball valve and also you should remove the dead space on the tee joint. i recommend no dead space between the valve and barrel. just adds more power :)

Well I have the tee there so when I get 6 more buck I'll make a stock with a ball valve so I can add adjust power. I like the touch with the sprinkler valve I might add that. :D

When you move up from ghetto, this is what you can do to a AA battery. :D

Tell us about your fence. AA batteries through a chain link fence isn't difficult.

:D

Especially these projectiles do not contain chemicals ...

For the PAC, the valve opening is not practical and removes the accuracy

WTF that looks awful, lol :lol:

It seems like you rushed everything on this project... If you just took your time and were careful I bet it wouldn't have leaked. Cut the endcap off, and cut the schrader out of it. Then redo the part. That's not safe at all.

The gun is actually quite safe except for the shrader valve. I already cut the cap off and redid it nicely unlike this photo for my other gun but it's still leaks. I'ma dremel the crappy rubber off and wrap it in duct tape and CLEANLY epoxy but if I shouldn't do that tell me please.

For the schrader, i recommend buying a brass threaded 1/4 schrader valve. it would save you more time than waiting for the epoxy to dry but epoxy would work fine :)
