better yet, launch the gun.
Get a long projectile so you can hold the end coming out of the barrel, and hope it doesnt snap when you fire :D

Hi guys! Long time no post! This one made me chuckle, but I do so love lung-powered blowguns that I just had to chime in! I once blew a needle dart halfway through my pointer finger wondering if I could hold my finger on the end of the barrel, blow to full pressure, and then whip my finger away qui...

im not sure about the servos, but usb ports provide 5v's. All the laser pointers i have used run off 3v so youll need some resistors.

Just had another failure.

Messing around with a gun in my room, didn't realize a valve was loose, pumped some air into it, BOOM.

The unwanted kind of boom anyway, it sent a ball valve and barrel across the room.

Re: I need a little help designing an ass...

I want to build a cheap simple and fun little springer for airsoft wars. I know this doesn't seem practical, but with careful designing and construction it should be cool. Careful designing and construction for something cheap, simple and fun does sound impractical. I think you're much better off b...

On my 10' spudgun I placed the barrel support too close to the breech, and had no supports to hold the barrel down. After a while, this placed lots of stress on the fittings connecting the piston valve to the chamber, eventually causing the to fail. The failure resulted in the barrel (still attache...
