how do i make a strong spring-powered airsoft gun (w/out a nerf gun) for $50?

i've always wanted to make an airsoft gun from scratch, but i never get the time to plan, i need help with a magazine design(for functionality), and i want to know how to judge springs by there power

It is not extremely hard to make an airsoft gun from scratch but it is time consuming. im making an airsoft rifle (bolt action spring powered) and the main trouble for me is the barrel, so its not THAT hard. try having a look inside an airsoft gun or if, like me, you live in a country wich prohibbites airsoft try google images. just stick with it! ill try to do an instructable when im done but don't wait.

It,s really hard to make an airsoft gun( especially under 50 dollars!) so take that 50 and go spend it on a smith and wesson m4505 at DicksSportingGoods.com

I suggest you look into air power, you can get most of the parts at home depot, and (IMO) it's nicer than using springs which can be widely inaccurate.
