Mini coaxal pneumatic from medicine bottle.

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

This is the first mini and the first coaxial pneumatic that I have ever made so I appreciate any and all comments (also this is my first post here so hi to everyone).

I have not glued anything in yet, so I have only been able to bring it up to around 30 psi (with it all taped up and even then there are a couple of leaks).

Use the forum link on there

Looks good so far, pop the pictures up and tell some specs..such as operating pressures etc.

i would suggest keeping this at low pressures i have had pill bottles explode when making mini combustions let alone a pneumatic nice job tho

*smacks for head* why didn't I think of that? Of course, a mini coaxial. Mini pistons a lower pressures should be easy right?

Great looking gun mate! Pneumatics can be much more dangerous than combustions... A pneumatic has stored pressure, whereas combustion has a spike of pressure.

Stick to 30 psi :shock:

Still, nice first effort, now buy some proper epoxy and make yourself a 400 psi mini coaxial ;)

Sorry for responding so late :oops: I have had some homework trouble. I am going to try and get it all epoxied up this weekend. Also I was wondering if wrapping it in some thin rope/whipping line and then epoxying it would increase the max psi that it could hold.

AFAIK it would. But it would be expensive, and I don't know how much extra pressure you would get out of it...

Looks like it's a common hard/brittle clear plastic body with a softer/elastic plastic cap.

Reinforcing it wouldn't be too easy, when you wrap with string it doesn't add strength in all directions. You'd end up with it in the middle of a ball.

Easiest to just leave it as a low pressure pneumatic for desk plinking and make a separate one if you want higher pressure.
