Well, PVC Aresenal 17 inspired me to make my own. See if you can figure it out, it's not that hard. GGDT rates a 30 BB "shotgun" round at ~350 fps. To fire it, you just unscrew the hook at the back. This one fires instantly, but currently I have TONS (3-4 to each) of different sized hooks, 2" plugs, and schrader valves for more experimenting.

'Bout damn time! Looks interesting. I must try...

I like how you used a diaphragm valve. (man I'm good) Just how tiny do they make threaded hooks? If you could get one about the diameter of a paperclip and used a fairly stiff diaphragm it should work.

I can get threaded hooks at sizes as low as 1/16", but then they're too small and bend when you're unscrewing them. :? I can't get a good size (non-bendy, but with a delay over 3 seconds).

About 30-35 airsoft BBs can fit at a time, with wadding in front and behind them. It also shoots them over 60 feet, so I think this turned out well, though I might mount it underneath an airsoft rifle as a secondary shotgun type thing.

EDIT: 5 minutes ago, I found out that screwing in the hook about 1/2 turn makes it so if I throw it, the hook gets shot out and the grenade fires! :twisted:

Yes that would be quite dangerous (I have evil thoughts in my head right now :twisted: ). But great thats a sweet idea placing it like a secondary weapon. Nice work :P

Yeah, getting hit with a half pound chunk of pipe wouldn't be at the top of my "To Do" list right now..
