Airsoft- Unlimited Ammo

Introduction: Airsoft- Unlimited Ammo

About: I know, I am very obsessed with potato cannons, but that's just my hobby. You don't like it, leave. But if you came looking for potato cannon tutorials, you have came to the right place.

Please Note, this is not recommended for any gun that you do not intend to break. This trick saved me lots of reloading for 200+ shots before my gun jammed and broke.

I found a cheap and simple way to turn virtually any spring airsoft pistol into an unlimited ammo machine. Unfortunately this only works on most spring airsoft pistols, but i'm working on making it work for semi-auto and full-auto. This also doesn't work on shotguns, rifles, or pretty much anything else that isn't a pistol.

12 round clip, ha, how about 200 round clip.

Here's what you'll need:
A spring airsoft pistol
BB's - about a few hundred (no you do not need to count them)
Scotch tape

* I am not responsible for anything you do with your airsoft gun *

I apologize if this jams your gun, it worked for me for a while. Please leave a comment on how to improve this method.

Step 1: Remove the Clip

Pop out the clip and set it aside. Now tip the airsoft gun upside down and pour BB's in the spot where the clip goes.

Step 2: Now Add Tape

Take the Scotch Tape and put it over the opening for the clip so no BB's can come out. Make sure the tape doesn't come off.

Step 3: Now You Shoot It

Now to fire the gun just tip it upside down and cock it, now you can turn it right-side up again and shoot. At first it might be hard and slow but after a while you should get the hang of it.

Step 4: FAQ's and Troubleshooting

Once I run out of ammo how do I reload. Take the tape off and repeat the process.
The gun doesn't shoot any BB's. Turn the gun completely upside-down and give it a smack, now while its still upside-down, cock it.
If the gun becomes jammed take off the tape, empty out all the BB's and shoot it a few times. If it still is jammed use a rod or other object to push the BB out.
If the tape repeatedly comes off, try using something more adhesive, such as duct tape.

If you have any other questions, problems, or ideas please leave a comment or PM me.

    1) get a few spare clips 4 yr gun.
    2) get a really long spring 4 yr gun clip
    3) pin vise drill or hand drill, with different sized drills. or u can use a battery power drill on slowest speed it can go.
    4) get a plastic tube that'ill allow u to put the spring and bbs(perferbly bio-balls).
    5) carefully drill a hole into the bottom. remember those spare u bought, thier there incase u make a mistake.
    6) carefully make the hole just slightly smaller than the hole in the clip, but still allowing the bbs to go thro.
    7) remove unneeded spring from that spare clip.
    8) sorry if this isnt all thoughtt out.
    9) use a bit of expoxy, please use throw away vinal gloves or other surgical type / style gloves, carefully mix ans spread the expoxy around the connection piont.
    10) let it cure be fore u test it out.
    11) test it out , remember to leave the retainer clip in the clip so u wont have 100 - 200 bbs coming out on u.
    12) be safe use safety gear.u have only 2 eyes. the doctors havent figured out how to replace them yet.
    13) if it doesnt work try again on another clip. if it does work plz give the credit where its due.

    Haha yeah, now I feel dumb for posting this (it was a first and only post) I apologize if I broke any of your guns... It jammed my gun and the trigger snapped. So if any of you guys have any ideas on how to make this better I would appreciate it. Maybe something like cutting the bottom out of your clip and extending it somehow???

    that breaks your gun a little bit each time . you do know that right

    Nice idea, but do you have a way of preventing bbs from getting stuck between the piston or barrel and slide?

    my rating- 5 stars - this is instructables at its best!

    Good idea if it doesn't jam your gun every time. Sadly, it's nowhere near a useful tactical option.

    Not to be mean or anything, but it is just increasing the magazine size and the accuracy must not be very good either. I have done this in the past and most of the bbs went into the body of the pistol. Nice instructable though it is a good starting idea.
