this is my portable vortex bbmg. i used an old carbon arrow as my barrel Plexiglass to make my vortex thing. after i made my vortex block i sandwiched it between 2 pieces of thin plexiglass and added some glue to make it air tight. theres a hole in the back where i put my air-soft bbs in then i plug it with a bolt. it will hold about 50 bbs and it is fast as hell. it will shoot all of the bbs before you can even begin to say wow! i have been operating this baby on 90 psi . this baby will shoot about 40 to 50 yards and is fairly accurate. :D

looks good, if I can make it out correctly that ball valve should give you more power than your average blowgun

Its a blowgun, you can tell by the curved handle. Thats a really nice gun, probably the first (or one of the first) portable bbmgs that doesn't use co2.

True it does look like a blowgun. On the other hand there have been many portable BBMGs using compressed air, like for example my standalone vortex project back in 2005.

Lol i have seem heaps, and mine is well was hooked to a 2L coke bottle, but then i updated it to a 7L chamber (which is a garden weed sprayer, good because it has a built in pump) thanks to Mr.Russ :) (because he told me, and told me how to mod it) but yeah, even Mr.Russ's is portable lol. Very nice gun, now all we need is close up's and damage pic's. Lol i thought it was a blow gun.

i got some more airsoft bbs last nigh and shot up some cans and card bored and random stuff.

but i got a problem. i guess its a good problem. i dunno. the thing shoots so fast that the bbs are hitting each other while comming out the barrel. thus decreasing accuracy greatly. hahahahaha but its fun
