Paintball to bb gun conversion?

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.

Guys,I have been trying to figure out a way of converting a semi auto Paintball Gun to fire say 6mm or 3/8"bbs.I have looked at some schematics of semi auto paintguns a while back but couldnt see how the hell I could get one to be able to feed in the smaller ammo??.Now it can be done but will probably need lathe work?,I can get a mate to do that: has anyone tried this and had any luck at all?,I know one guy who has converted one but using an OLD Tippman SMG 60!.It now fires 6mm bbs!!,steel + plastic after converting an airsoft magazine to feed the ammo and somehow changed the barrel?,I have only just spoke to the maker and heres a link to his stuff!(THESE ARE NOT MY GUNS) ... backb1.jpg ... istol1.jpg

the pic of "blowback"is the one I speak of ,the one titled"autopistol is a painball gun converted to a cloud gun(.177):D,the one titled"guna"uses a venturi(vortex?) in the grip firing .177 bbs as well Great work indeed!.

Now I cant get an old Tippman SMG 60 here in Australia but could maybe get a Spyder or Tippman 98 or such to convert but dont know if it can be done?.I was even going to convert an old SL-68 pump action Paintball Gun at one point,Might see if I can still get one?:gun laws here are shit!:evil:and you need to licence paintball guns.
