Bazooka?

Unread postAuthor: Counterstriker » Tue Jul 24, 2007 7:27 pm

I know no one really gives ideas away on the forum but you guys are sure great for tips. Well I am planning on making a bazooka for airsoft that shoots nerf footballs. ETC. I want it to resemble a bazooka, If I wanted it to look normal I could do that easily.

Please&Thankyou!

if i were you i would shoot shotgun sprays of bb's. it will be far more effective in airsoft skirmishes. just buy bulk bags of crappy .12's, mix it with flhour, and use that.

nerf footballs wont be useful in airsoft.

i would actually use nerf rockets, like the ones on the Big Bad Bow. i can get one of those to go twice the range of an AEG with extreme accuracy. plus, i know a way you could make a shell system, in wich you pop in a shell, fire, pull it out, pop a new one in, fire.........

Yah, Thats a good idea but I wanna intimidate more than own people: ) and the place where I play you need to shoot nerf balls to take out tanks.
Thanks for the idea though it was good : )

Isn't there a video of flour igniting when shot from a barrel?

well, heres my plan (4 uuuuuu!) but you dont have to use it at all.

it seems like you want a breech-loaded coaxial.

basically, in a breech loaded coax, the barrel runs down the chamber all the way and then is broken by a tee and connected at the rear of the chamber as well. right where the barrel tee is there is a chamber tee, wich houses the piston..........

to breech load, take the cap off the back of the barrel, shove the football past the tee, then screw the cap shut again.

and to use CO2 you must buy a 0-100 PSI LPR and a saftey pop-valve so that your cannon doesnt go BLAM in the unlikely event of the CO2 reg failng.

in fact, there was a movie of someone igniting fhlour out of a tater cannon. i stuff some down my barrel for shotgun sprays because it adds to the effect.

Thanks! , I have a question sprinkler valves. I know there are two sides on them but are you supposed to the chamber on one side then the barrel on the other?

----------O----------- or -----------------------------O

Because on the AT-4 it looks different.

No it was a pneumatic. It's to do with the densities and mixture so it doesn't always happen.

That's where the myth(?) that windmills use to blow up comes from.

On the AT-4 the sprinkler valve is used as a pilot valve to actuate the piston and it is coaxial. But if you using the sprinkler valve as your main valve, it would be chamber, sprinkler valve, barrel:
-------------sprinkler valve---------------

Any other questions, just ask!

like that?
do you really need it to look like a bazooka, or at least feel comfortable like a bazooka, well with no piston valve its hard too look like a bazooka without having a small chamber and unused space

One more: ) how much would all the mats cost? mainly the valve, blowgun tubing... I made some drawing out and plan on building when I get back from vacation. I also have one more question. Where do I buy the things on the end of the launcher?

I----------I
