My new sniper was about 80 bucks if you count the prices of the stuff I already had, but I've made them for as low as $15, and that's with all safe pressure rated parts too.

I built a barrel-sealing piston valve cannon, with a paintball barrel and a 30" 1.25" chamber for $20 (I bought EVERYTHING; nothing was just used from stuff lying around the house).

I have built a dual-supah valved POS that cost $400, which is easily outperformed by my ~$200-$250 Americannon

At the same time, for $500, I could build a double Americannon with a 6" barrel, 25' remote firing, QEV's for exhaust, safe SCH 80 chambers, and powerful as hell.

Conversely, I could build a union gun for under $5

$50 is a little bit below average; I'd say $75 is right for a good spudgun.

Get used to it, zeigs! As you build more advanced, the price goes up as well, (well, most of the time)... :wink:

I spent $150 Canadian on my dual chambered combustion, and just taking a guess my pneumatic one will cost me well over a hundred (metal).

Including microfiles, a new router bit, and sometime on a lathe my new piston gun is about $120. Then again, I've made six pistons for it. Best design and all that.
