Introduction: Cheap Easy Good Airsoft Gun

Picture of Cheap Easy Good Airsoft Gun

This is an Airsoft gun made out of a cap gun. It costs less than $3.00,  shoots about 20-30 feet, and takes less than 10 minutes to make. ** Sorry for the bad Pictures**

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

- Cap Gun
-Airsoft BBs
-Caps(Not pictured)
-Duct Tape
-Toothpick(Not Pictured)

Step 2: Removing the Cap

Picture of Removing the Cap

Remove the cap off the barrel of the cap gun(usually orange). Most of the time, like my gun it will just slide off. If not, cut it off with a knife or something.

Step 3: Cut Duct Tape Strips

Cut the duct tape into thin strips about 3/4" long. Cut as many as there are holes for the BBs.

Step 4: Inserting the Strips

Insert the duct tape strips into the holes and press flat against the side with the toothpick. Cut off the extra tape that sticks out of the hole. **This Step Can Be Skipped, But your bullets will not stay in the gun if you tilt it**

Step 5: Loading the Ammo

The BBs go right into each hole. Put them in and push them down with the toothpick.

Step 6: Using the Gun

Picture of Using the Gun

Just Put the caps on and shoot! It goes an average of 20-30 ft and it will leave a welt from up close.

Where did you get your cap gun?

tdfa98 (author)2011-03-11

thats kinda stupid the orange tip is what the police use to identify it as a toy. if you take it out and ar stopped you could be arrested for carrying a real weapon or taking the cap off and "disguising a weapon".
i constantly scratched mine with my screwdriver and then once i got a hole i drilled it with a screwdriver(I havent got a power drill). that way I still had a barrel but the tip was still on. See my logic Im only twelve lol.

dont wanna be mean, just giving you a heads up.

this is strictly for fun, not for carrying around in public. i know some states are alot stricter with airsoft guns in public but my state is not and i do not recommend bringing it out in public in any state, thats just common sense.

if this is meant to be used as an airsoft gun, PLEASE PUT AN ORANGE TIP ON IT!!! if need be, go out and get some neon orange paint (i use Testors model paint) and paint one.

no i know why he did this its because orange tips on cap guns block the entrance. if i were you though, id still wrap a strip of orange duct tape around the barrel.

ilpug (author)The3rdPunch2011-05-31

i know that. i use tough paint instead of tape, because it looks more legit, and it lasts longer.

I'm surprised you are getting any flight at all. I really didn't think caps had that much power in them.

I might have to try this.
