Re: Magazine problem

I have tried similar and it will always happen like that, there is too much air just to launch one BB, it will try to launch the next one or two at a reduced velocity, so they just roll down the barrel. If you want semi auto you need to block the magazine tube somehow between each shot, that's the t...

Re: Airsoft "rocket launcher"

I made something similar, had to use an inner barrel (1/4" ID) to contain the BB's but still get a small spread.

Re: Saftety of PVC Pipe

Of course there is only one correct answer, NO, it's not safe.

Trying to remember a movie plot

Can anyone remember a movie plot (or TV show?) where some people break into a facility with a computer virus to load into a super computer to stop it taking over the world (as they tend to do) only to upload it and realize the virus actually triggered the super computer into action. :shock:

Re: Spud gun exploding

Don't forget if that was regular PVC it's not rated for air pressure.

Re: Introduction and My First Pneumatic

Sounds good, would like to see it. I also favor airsoft as the ammo is cheap and I can get good results with only 150psi from my compressor.

This gets 826fps with 0.12g :D

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

I haven't been doing much lately, sort of got into building bikes :shock: I have turned the BFG into a MFG, cut down the barrel , removed all the semi auto bits, cut the body down a bit and now using a diiferent gravity fed mag which holds 20 BBs :D 111 (2).jpg 111 (3).jpg 111 (1).jpg Started making...

Re: Short question topic

I'm thinking the red dot is actually a beam of light, 1st fixed point is where it hits the reflector and the 2nd is where it hits you're eye, like a reverse laser pointer but not strong enough to blind you.

Re: Pneumatic Pumpkin/Apple Blaster Cannon

Here is a pumpkin launcher, it is a much bigger project than an apple launcher, pretty simple though, only 35-50psi. You're gonna need a big compressor to keep this supplied. Can't see what he is using, might be high pressure air tanks :o
