nail gun

Unread postAuthor: teeka » Tue May 24, 2005 11:37 pm

Someone said to me the other day that if you wanna make a semi - auto bb gun, you could take the valve out of an air compressor nail gun, because they only release a quick shot of air and then close... Would this be right?

i was going to do that with my dads old nail gun but he still wanted it

i was going to put a little tee just after the valve so i could drop a pellet in then screw on a cap then pull the trigger

im might be going to a few shops 4 parts on the weekend so ill ask if i would be able to buy just the valve for the nail gun in the tool shop

you could just use a blowgun, and release it quickly. it has the same effect.

yeah, thats what i did with my semi auto bb gun, (in the submit pneumatics section) blowguns work fine, though i'd like to see what kind of valve is in a nail gun...

yea with a blowgun the air wil keep on coming out if u hold the trigger down but with the nail gun valve you could set it to the right amount of air for the barrel

hmm, you could probably get a cheap nail gun on ebay (like an old one or somehting) and take one out of there? or maybe a hardware store or garage sale, also, painbtall guns, those u can get as cheap as 50$ and there are other parts that u can use such as co2 hose, those can be useful :) hope i helped, i dont know too much actual spudguns and bb guns though :(
