sight for airgun

Unread postAuthor: hi » Mon Apr 23, 2007 8:00 pm

im making a new copper airgun and i found an old scope and i wanted to mount it on the barrel. i was thinking simply using a hose clamp and maybe some glue. does any body have any other ideas for mounting it (i really dont want to drill holes). this has a curve on the side and is curved pefectly for 1/2'' pipe.

I really want some type of sights on my gun, so does anybody know of any other type of sights that are easy to make? click on image to make it bigger.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

while on the topics of sights.... does someone want to do a "how-to" for making your own open sights?

oh n super spuder, epoxy on a rail then ya can remove the scope wen ya need to. make sure its square to the barrel though.

peace

Well, sights will be much easier to make if you use a single pressure rating and a single type of ammo -- try making sights similar to those on a grenade launcher. Like so:

Although your gun may be a higher velocity, the leaf design may be a good starting point.

i guess i could make one of those, but i really had my heart set on the scope. i was going to mold a bullet-like shape and make a bunch of them. also going to shoot marbles.

by the way, does 1/2'' pvc or 1/2'' copper have a larger inner diameter? i know that one is smaller than the other, i just cant remember which one. im talking about type L copper and SCH40 pvc.

you can get sinker molds at any fishing tackle store, i suggest get one because you can melt practically anything into em eg: Candle wax, Plastic, solder ect..
