Dust-off BBMG

Unread postAuthor: Marffy » Sun Jan 31, 2010 4:52 pm

does anyone think the Dust-off compressed air cans can power a bbmg. They are basically a bigger version of a co2 tire inflator. But with a lot less psi. I would think that the flow of air those cans can give off would be just enough to make a bbmg. If my own lungs can make bbmg work an aerosol can should be able to too. discuss.

Well I have seen multiple single shot versions but none of them had any reasonable power. The one full auto one I saw was a cloud which was weak. Also these could get expensive as you can only get 3 for 15 dollars and each one would probally only last for about a minute of shooting.

It's suitable for airsoft purposes, which is a good sign.

For it to be useful in a homemade bbmg, though, we're going to need a design significantly more efficient than a strafer. Like a bullet valve or something...

I was stumbling the internet and came across one. Can't remember what website it was, but it was still nifty seeing it in action. Of course it would only seem useful in annoying roommates and leaving little plastic BB's everywhere. Go for it. If you do build, keep the hose and seal it into the cloud chamber or vortex block.

What could be more efficient than a "valve" with zero opening time and maximum flow?
