Mini Hybrid of Walrus

Unread postAuthor: iamthewalrus » Mon Jul 11, 2005 4:01 pm

ok, sum it most likely wrong with it, but thats what the forums are for, to save my life from crazy ideas. ok its a hybrid with a 1.5" sch80 sleeved into 2" sch80 for a chamber chamber and .75 cpvc barrel. a 2-.5 reducer on the back of the hybrid goes to a .5" T which goes to a schrader valve and a uber small .5" wide hose propane meter( theres a reg but i didnt put it in the pic.) its ignited by the bbq handle. and theres a gauge on the chamber i didnt put in pic, same with the union. i just plan on 2x mixes mostly maybe 3x if im feeling crazy :twisted: . tell me what u think um my monster mini.

um.....union? you're gonna have your paintball's falling out of the chamber when you add the air lol. also, you'll need an adapter to go to CPVC, i'd suggest a male pvc adapter and a female cpvc adapter, or vise versa

i said i left the union out of the pic just like the reg for the propane and the gauge on the chamber, im not that stupid to leave out the union, silly spudshot. and the pvc thing, yeah i'll prolly do that like i did on my sniper.

Umm, with 1.5 inch schedule 80 your safe up to a 6x mix, although that is really pushing it. You should try holding it by hand with a 5x mix. :twisted:

Oh, and please don't try what I just said.

the union will most likely explode, i'd build a small stand for it, for higher mixes, but i'd do handheld for 1.5x and 2x mixes

I found a stainless steel reinforced union on McMaster that was 3/4 inch and was rated to 414 PSI. That would definetlyhold up to a 5x mix.

still wouldnt push it though, but it'd be cool to see a tiny bastard like that break the sound barrier, to date, i only know of 2 people who've broken the sound barrier with spudguns, spudinator, and jspellman

yeah, that might work, but what i'm worried about is the chamber, if you have a metal union, you're fine, but a PVC chamber with a 6x mix might blow, especailly if the mix is a little bit off

In a chamber rated to 600 PSI? Remember that pipe is rated to &frac12; its actual burst pressure (or so i think). SO a 6x mix in a chamber rated to 500 shouldnt burst, but then again, DDT really sucks when it happens to you.
