Micro Combustion - pics and vid.

Miniature guns are novelty custom, unique, and sometime downright crude! Common construction materials often include pill bottles or pens. Show us your work!

The vid was taken when the chamber was leaky(and with paper). It breaks cd's with bbs now.

Not half bad actually...one of the best conceived micros I've seen around here.

However, fueling is and always will be your biggest challenge with these things.

Thanks,

One tiny squirt of a can of Lynx deoderant I have works just fine, but it's easy to put too much in. I've also built a breech loader and a silencer for it, but they're mainly novelties. If anyone is interested I could get some pictures.

The collar slides to reveal a breech to load ammo into. Is airtight and hasn't leaked yet. Silencer has holes drilled in inner and outer barrel, with cotton wool inbetween them. Depending on what ammo you use it is nearly silent.

If you have a question 'bout a gun then the creator will never mind replying to pm's.

I think you're talking about the silencer, it's part of a blue marker super glued and tape onto the barrel.

I'll give you a quick bit of advice if you try to make a silencer, maker sure you make the holes flush with the barrel! In small bores like this you will lose near all performance if there's anything sticking out.
