I cant belive it. IT WORKS!!! Tested at 200psi the thing shot a byro nib into my wall! Cant wait to try it at 400psi tommorow morning. Ill also buy a nice metal dust cap and make it into a firing cap.

What pressure do you think it could take. From a non expert i think it could take 800psi. What do you guys think? Its full steel and each tube has a 1mm wall.

haha brilliant! Videos please :)

I've taken a pen gun with 0.5mm brass chamber walls to 850 psi, no problem. The question is, how much faith do you have in your epoxy?

heh, what I think is that you should find something better to shoot at than your wall!

Sweet little gun, man. One of these days, I'm gonna have to get around to making a pen gun.

dam that look great and its so small even it it was to pop wont do too much damage you could put a blanked over it when testing it over 500psi.
