This is a type of cloud airsoft gun - named so because of how the pellets are blown around the reservoir before being fired out the barrel. Since there is nothing mechanical to get in the way of the workings of this gun the rate of fire is extremely high, an estimated 50 rounds per second. It would make a great airsoft turret to be mounted on the defensive wall of a home base.

The price of materials is just over $50 assuming the builder already has PVC primer and cement.

hey I want to make two of these and turn them both sideways and connect them both to make a mounted, two-barreled, gun for my airsoft coarse that I am building. Is it possible to do or will it have some issues?
This is cool I made one!

i recently made a airsoft SVD style rifle by kinda crossing your flamethrower and the mini gun. it has a 5 gallon air tank in a backpack but uses the same "cloud" system as your mini gun. i am using a 12v air horn valve hooked up to a momentary push button as the trigger.
Sir, I would just like to say, I praise you as a god.

cool maybe I can make an assault rifle using the same principles but try to incorporate a L.A.W. in there too.
im working on making a pair of these with my friend. Ill be making it a little more "high end" by incorporating it into a synthetic SKS pistol grip stock and using the backpack reservoir from your bottle machine gun. he's making his the same way, only with a wooden tommy gun stock from a local airsoft store. we will be sure to post pictures and maybe a video when theyre done!

I was going to make this gun with my dad and we were wondering if you could make the bb reservoir out of 2" PVC but still have the barrel out of 1.25 PVC so it can hold more bbs.
NightHawkInLight (author)  rower-111 year ago
yes that would be fine. Also you may want to check out my other instructable on a similar subject here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-Airsoft-Machine-Gun-from-a-Soda-Bottle/

Here is a link to to a basic concept that could allow lower budget, or just little access to parts, airsofters to take their imagination and take a baser concept and turn it into a skirmishable airsoft gun.

how much fps does it have

Im thinking of making a cross between your flamethrower and this, by putting the resevoir in a backpack and having a minigun like this instead of a waterbottle with a tube in it.
i was thinking the same thing ! :)

Can i use a CO2 tank??? would that work or shoot for a long time... and would there be a way too have more bb's to shoot??
in theory it should work with co2. if you make the bb resovoir bigger/ longer it should hold more bb's.

Very nice, I plan on making this with my Dad. Do you have any suggestions for making it more of a flamethrower version, with the air reservoir in a backpack or something?
