cloud capacity UPDATE

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

if i build a cloud from a 1.5" male plug, 1.5" female threaded adapter and 1.5" male threaded plug with a .25" brakeline barrel how many bbs do you guys think it could hold with the chamber half full? how many if i used 1"? also ive been told theese guns shoot ~100 rounds per second is this correct?

Normally, a BBMG gets about 50-60 rounds a second, but it varies - there are tricks to increase ROF.

And do some maths! Work out the volume of your chamber, work out the volume of a BB (add a little bit, because not all space is filled), and divide appropriately - there, you have an answer!

I think the "add a little bit" part kind of screws it all up. You should just fill up a pipe or something that will make a pretty good estimate of how much it can hold. I think mine holds around 700 and it is 1.25" x 6". I fill mine alot though. Also, it depends on whether you use metal BB's or airsoft bb's. I was talking about airsoft.

Heck, just measure the volume of the container the BBs came in to figure out the volume/bb (or airsoft).

About 1200-1500, depending on the length of your fittings (different brands vary by a bit) and how long you make the hopper.

Buy the parts and figure out for yourself. Don't be a baby.
