Nail gun conversion.

Unread postAuthor: warhead052 » Thu Mar 29, 2012 12:10 pm

So I had an idea which has probably been done before, but nail guns could be used as a bb gun. I saw an animation that had a pneumatic nail gun and it showed something that looked pretty much like a blow forward bolt. So my theory is, take off the area where the nail is shot out of, and put a barrel instead, and rework the nail magazine to hold ammo, and you have a working gun. My question would be, do you think I should spend some money and try it?

If you have one already I say go for it.

Does the theory sound like it will work though?

You can make a gun just as good and better without the nail gun theory I think. I have been using nail guns since I was 16, and when you shoot a nail out of one it doesnt go very far, a typical bb or pellet rifle is just as powerful and alot less money!!

Ah, but if you use the air to push the projectile directly as opposed to driving a piston which strikes it, you have a lot more power potential.

Matty, is the piston that fires the nails hollow on the inside to exhaust the air as it flies forward?

Jack, I will try the blow forward bolt when I can get access to a drill press.

A typical nail gun does NOT exhaust air, the air is used to push a large diameter piston that acts like a hammer to push the nails to the wall.
