Introduction: How to Make an Airsoft Target

Here's a really easy way to make an airsoft target if you don't want to bother buying one.

Please go easy on me, this is my first instructable.

Feel free to make suggestions to make it better.

Step 1: Gathering the Materials

You will need the objects in the picture, a box, airsoft BB's, an airsoft gun, paper, and tape.

Step 2: Starting Out

First, start out with the box.

Step 3: Paper

Next, get out a piece of printer sized paper or whatever will fit the box.

Step 4: Tape

Put two pieces of tape on both sides of the paper as shown below.

Step 5: Almost Done

Then lay the paper on the box and crease the sides.

Step 6: Tape It Down

Now stick the tape to the box on both sides.

Step 7: Finished

Your target is complete! Just start shooting away and the box will catch your airsoft BB's for you.

Step 8: P.S.

If the airsoft BB's shoot through the back of the box then tape on piesces of cardboard or anything else that wll make the back stronger.

Step 9: Have Fun!

this really helped! Now i can just go out to my back yard and shoot at it. Before, my target was a bottle until i found this. Thanks again!

you could try lining the back with duct tape ( it works with my 210 fps gun, but i dont think it works with high fps guns)

you could add 2-3 inces of foam in the back of the box for more powerful guns

You could put some foam on the bottom so the BB's won't stop instantly but slow down very fast :)

I could tear a hole on both sides in a few seconds with my gun. It needs a steel box enclosure. So when the bbs shatter against it bb fragments don't go flying everywhere

whats the point of catching the bbs if your not supposed to use them twice? well, on my gun your not.

author
DJMcAwesome made it!(author)2011-01-08

A simple solution: If you aren't supposed to re-use BB's in your gun, chances are it is also powerful enough to penetrate the other side of the box as well.

author
chopstx made it!(author)2011-01-09

That is true, I did not think of that.

 Most LPEGs and low to midgrade springs guns aren't affected by reused BBs.  They only become an issue in higher quality guns, where your barrel is typically smaller, BBs with dents/chips/snags/seams harm the fine workings in the barrel and hop-up, which generally aren't present on lower end guns, like the one shown in the pictures here.

Also, catching BBs is good so you don't have a litter of small plastic all about the area, and can dispose of them properly, or recycle them for use in the guns I just mentioned.

Your right i have a Mauser super pro sniper and reused BBs ruined a deagel that i had

@CTBruster use more paper and for the cardboard put more cardboard or buy a weeker gun

author
Phoghat made it!(author)2010-12-15

You could cut some cardboard to fit the bottom of the box and make it stronger

if you go on Google images and type in "airsoft target" it'll come up with some great targets. select one of them and hit print. then there will be a really good target for your target. :D

Very helpful. I have an L96 and it easily goes through everything. I just replaced the back with a small piece of wood. You could also glue some foam on the back so it wont damage the bb's so you can re-use them. Great instructable!

author
jamesfazza made it!(author)2010-01-12

if you reuse bb's check them for little bits missing cus mine jammed doing that where a little bit broke off in the guncus i reused it so i wouldnt recommended it btw my gun is a g36c

Be sure  to have a sturdy box that won't get shot through at close range, because certain guns may puncture the box and BB's will fall out. Also, maybe printing things on the paper so you could have an actual target.
