Picture of Skewer Ammo for Your BB Gun

this is a simple instructable on how to make ammo for your bb gun

Step 1: Wrapping

Picture of Wrapping

take about 1 and 1/2 inch of masking tape and wrap it around the middle of the skewer

Step 2: Loading

Picture of Loading

push the skewer down the barrel of the bb gun then cock it
if your gun uses a spring not air compression after you cock it you should be able to push it down more
then shoot it as you usually would

Me to.

I have a modified Crosman 760 and Gamo Shadow Express.

How did you mod it?

I replaced the smoothbore barrel with a rifled one from a Powermaster 66, made a shroud for the barrel so it would fit properly, and replaced the compression chamber with the one from the same Powermaster 66 because an o-ring on the stock compression chamber was worn out. It was worn out because I inherited it from my grandfather who hadn't used it in 20 years. he also never maintained it. I further customized it by making wooden handles and gave it a centerpoint 4x32 scope.

lol i did this a cuople times before i even heard about this instructable. i shot a can,
a bird, and my friend Valerie(well almost)

zupyo22 (author)2011-03-03

yeah i thought that it would be better if you used a blow dart gun dart rapped it in tape and shoved it down the barrel buried it 1/2 of an inch into a 2by4 so deadly

Using the Red Ryder like you were, I found bamboo sparklers to fit nicely in the end of the barrel. I used that to light a huge gas bonfire it was awesome. i'll post a youtube link when I upload it

I made a couple hundred of these with my friend and I shot a rabbit with 2 of them. The first one went clean through and PINNED it to the ground then second one finished it off.

same daisy as I used to have by the looks of things, except I got adventurous and swapped the spring for a far more powerful one, try blowing a beer bottle apart at 400 feet, the pellet went through the bottle and was stuck to the shipping container behind it flat (the actual BB was flattened) I don't have any idea what the srping was from but it was the exact same size as the original but really hard to compress. It really helped with rod ammo like this because it's so much heavier, made 200 feet range with rod quite accurate.

sounds b a

lol i have a bb pistol i got 4 my b'day and i opened it up and stretched th spring it leaves a mean mark and metal slugs draw blood at close range lol

sharlston (author)Geemo52009-05-03

ringring (author)sharlston2009-05-22

like metal cylinder things with a point at the air rifle bullets

pirate8772 (author)ringring2010-04-13

CapnTac (author)ringring2009-06-25

You mean pellets?

sharlston (author)sharlston2009-05-23

oh you mean them things in shotgun shells?

sharlston (author)Geemo52009-08-18

how ya make em?

pyromaniac78 (author)2008-06-21

i have a 1000 fps pelet gun and had found skewers that nearly fit it but was unsure how to how to mod them that would still be safe for the barrel had thought about dipping them in wax to make the seal better but am not willing to subject my good gun to that kind of abuse

Phoghat (author)pyromaniac782009-08-29

Beeman sells felt cleaning pellets that you load 2 at a time. They're basically compressed cotton. DO NOT use wax; you will f up your gun. I'd try some sort of cotton tip for the skewer making it look like a one sided q tip. A blow gun dart in other words.

ringring (author)pyromaniac782009-05-22

it works but u need to clean your barrel after a while

yomwack (author)2009-04-08

does the daisy leh-ver not lee-ver action use are or i know it pumps like a spring on the inside whats hitting the projectile(skewer)

bylerfamily (author)2009-02-04

Hm.I shot frogs with my BB gun but they always hopped into the water and swam off.That was a good idea.

finnster (author)2009-01-11

What's the point of this instructable? Doesn't everyone know how to ram a skewer down the barrel of a Red Ryder?

unominame (author)2008-10-26

try using tooth picks in your bbgun but like the maker of this instructable, use tape at the top, but... DONT USE DUCT TAPE! it will get stuck in the barrel.

pengunmaster (author)2008-10-16

i have a daisy model 105 buck its really nice.

Thelonelysandwitch (author)2008-10-13

I have a pump gun that can hit a max of 1250 fps so I use small pieces of metal coat hanger= VERY VERY DEADLY. I put it through 2 in of plywood and got lodged 1/4 in the tree behind it. very fun.

I found this technique to work well with an air rifle especially if you switched the skewer for the inards of a biro. Since it's lighter/thinner it also works well for pistols.

Dvanex (author)2007-08-24

Why wouldn't you just cut a small bit off the sharpened end of the skewer, it would weight a lot less but still have the sharp point. These would be great for shooting at wooden targets.

Coffee bean (author)2007-08-09

it is at a close range but the dont fly well. i cut the heads of srews
