vortex/cloud bb gun

Unread postAuthor: DAltar » Tue Nov 01, 2005 1:56 pm

i did this a while back and it worked pretty well it shot airsof bbs and corn.. the gun was composed of 3 parts a tennis ball an alluminum barrel and a blogun for the trigger. the BB's would get aggitated by the air and because of the bound shape of a tennis ball would make the airsoft bb's/popcorn get caught in a vortex of air. To load yo just remove the blogun and pour in the ammo.

Thats crazy cool, I'd try it, but I ahve none of those parts lying around and dont feel it a good investment. Nice idea though, but I just see the barell leaving the ball. Dunno.

Ah, so simple now. Bit sleepy from lounging around. I think I might just go out and make for the fun on second thought.,

Actually, im vague on it, but id say its something where air is constantly running through out it, and it has its own air vortex in the middle causing the projectiles to be forced out og the barrel?

The barrel will be difficult to attach, and I think it will most likely 'leave'... you'r "but it constantly has air moving" through it is bull, incidentaly...
I think you need a very smooth tranition to the barrel, and this will be hard (if not impossible) to acheive here.
Same as above, but with air imput.

Over all, it may have a better rate of fire than a normal cloud, and it may not.
