    i did use pvc primer and cement to make it. The duct tape is on it because i used it to mount the handle and the scope.

    also it broke because when i made I accidentally put the 45 degree connecter in at angle, so after a while it just sort of broke off.

    Cool gun! I've made one myself; you should consider adding a lager PVC tune and use primer and cement to fit everything together. You also may want to get couplets and bushings to fit on an air storage. If you connect a tire valve you can put almost 150 PSI and it will let you shoot a nail hard enough to get stuck in wood 50 feet away

    Good job. Im not sure where you are. at my country we dont have those quick release systems that people use like sprinklers etc. But if you can find them, try them someday.

    Just to add. Im not a pro in making airguns so...

    I dont think the connection from the barrel to the front grip is good enough. Tapes are strong, but just dont have the sturdy feel.

    Also, I wouldnt go with any scope. Not because its a bad idea, but because I know I wouldnt have the right tools and materials to make a good scope. If you didnt make the scope very accurate, you will be mislead by the scope, which means you think its gonna hit, but it will miss

    All in all, seems nice for a first airgun
