About: Hey all i have built loads of weapons like slingshot, air gun, blowgun, knives, spears, animal traps and almost everything to do with hunting. SO if you have ideas about stuff about hunting leave a comment t...

This is a mod for blow guns and air guns, and if made good it is easy to reload and the dart cant be sucked back so its safe also not many people can say "hey man i have a BOLT ACTION BLOW GUN DO U" and it looks very cool.

Step 1: Requirements

1 blow gun

1 piece of PVC pipe thats fits tight in the blowgun pipe (air tight)

1 small piece of wood (round) about 5-10cm long (this is for the bolt/lever.

1 small hook

1 normal sized rubberband

2 barbaque Skewer (for the rails)

superglue or equilivent (good superglue)

Step 2: Cutting Out

first cut out the area where the blow dart will fit into
NOTE : this bolt action is designed for nail darts

use the hacksaw to cut out an area of the blow gun (closest to the mouth piece, so it dosent lose power)

like you se in the pic
its a bit fuzzy though
the mouth piece is at the right end ---->

Step 3: Making the Slider and Attaching It

next get the piece of PVC is should be about double the length of the area you cut out of the blowgun

then cut out a quater of the pipe long ways and glue on a "bolt" (woodern piece) and round it.
also make sure the PVC fits easly( slides back and forward) but firm so it dosent fall off

just like in the pic

NOTE it is the small thing in the L shape

Step 4: The Guide Rails

next get the bbq squires and place them under where the slider goes so slider doesent roll down

LIKE ON THE PIC ( the most yellowie object there and in stick shape)

Step 5: Stopers

now add stopers on the blow gun so the blow gun dosent move all the way up and down the blow gun

i only used one stopper which was the mouth piece and i havent needed to put another on on the other end because the plastic coating stops it

see pic

see how it hits on the mouth piece( larger whole piece of PVC)


congrats now put it all together and your blow gun is bolt action coooooooool

this is an optional thing and it makes it cooler
cut the bbq skewer of after the area there you put the dart in ( on the leaver side) and place the cut off bit around further

Then put a hook through the mouth piece or tie the pulling rubber band from the leaver to another rubberband like what i did.
now test it by pushing the slider forward then it to the right or whatever side the 'bolt' is on then let go it should hit on the remanding BBQ stick so it dosent flick back, now flick the 'bolt' up and it should spring back shut cooooool


keep alook out for my other ideas in the future involving anything to do with weapons and hunting stuff

WARNING do not shoot blow gun at any person or living thing because it would hurt and may kill

    A blowgun is a tube that when you forcefully blow on the end, a dart is fired at a velocity depending on the strength of the wind
