Skewer Ammo for Your BB Gun




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

Step 1: Wrapping

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

Step 2: 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

    I have skewer ammo as well but its a metal skewer and it fire and penetrate well. to shoot it i use my homemade airsoft gun

    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.

    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.
