Introduction: How to Make an Air Gun

HOW TO MAKE AN AIR GUN IN 5 SIMPLE STEPS

MATERIALS:
1 BOTTLE
1 GAGE
1 LONG PIPE
1 HOSE GUN OR AIR LINE FITTING
1 COPPER PIPE
1 CONNECTOR (BOTTLE TO PIPE)
1 BIKE VALVE

Step 1: Makeing the Air Chamber

FIRST GET THE BOTTLE AND THE BIKE VALVE. DRILL A HOLE IN THEN BOTTLE BIG ENOUGH FOR THE BIKE VALVE TO FIT THROUGH THEN DROP THE BIKE VALVE IN THE BOTTLE THEN POKE IT THROUGH THE HOLE GLUE THE BIKE VALVE SO AIR CANT GET THROUGH OR YOU CAN USE PVC PIPE INSTEAD OF A BOTTLE.

Step 2: Putting the Gage On

DRILL A HOLE I THE SIDE OF THE BOTTLE AND THEN PUT A BIT OF GLUE AROUND THE EDGE THEN SCREW THE GAGE ON (THE GLUE IS TO GIVE THE GAGE MORE SUPPORT AND MAKE SURE THE AIR DOESN’T COME OUT)

Step 3: Connecting the Pipe to the Bottle

GLUE THE CONNECTOR IN THE END OF THE BOTTLE THEN PUT A BIT OF GLUE AROUND THE END OF THE CONNECTOR THEN PUT THE PIPE ON TO IT

Step 4: Connecting the Trigger to the Pipe

CONNECT THE END OF THE PIPE TO THE HOSE GUN OR AIR LINE CONNECTOR

Step 5: Connecting the Barrel to the Gun

CONNECT THE COPPER PIPE TO THE HOSE GUN OR AIR LINE CONNECTOR I USED A PIECE OF RUBBER PIPE TO CONNECT THE AIR LINE CONNECTOR TO THE COPPER PIPE BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T FIT STRAIT ON.

Step 6: How to Use It

PUMP THE BOTTLE UP AS MUCH AS YOU WANT USING THE BIKE VALVE AND A PUMP THEN PUT SOMETHING IN THE BARREL THEN PRESS THE TRIGGER

    Jeez, could your pictures be any blurrier?! And whats with the caps lock? please, try to be a little more informative, and not sound like your yelling all the instructions at everyone. I'm surprised this hasn't been confronted by the admins. I like your ible, it just needs alot more work before you publish.

    Lol, dude, add a disclaimer and a warning. Just in case someone got one explode in his face and went to the hospital and point the finger at you (aka. you get sued).

    You cut a slit down the middle Put it over the Other bottle and put a blow torcg (or lighter) near it so it melts it but not to a extent the plastic burns And spin it very slowly it will eventually melt
