I want to start playing airsoft, moving on from nerf modding. (also I'd like to make pen guns) Yet my friend could only find bb's when he went on a holiday around Europe. Are there any stores or online shops that sell these liitle plastic balls of awesomeness in the land down under?

I want a good reliable Airsoft pistol, any suggestions? Answered

I love playing airsoft but its so damn expensive, especially in canada.  I've been looking at a few different methods of building a spring or elastic-powered airsoft pistol to be used when my main gun is out of ammo. I've made a couple from K'nex but they dont hold up when i put alot of elastics on them.  im not interested in using the aerosol or bike-pump pvc models, i've built those too but they take too long for each shot. Help me out Please :)

Question by Golani warrior 


What gram airsoft bb should I use?

I recently bought a UHC super 9 pro airsoft gun.  The problem is that .2 gram bbs curve dramatically (a very steep curve) up after about 75 feet or so.  The hopup is off, and if the hopup is on, the problem is worse. Will .25 gram bbs make much of a difference, or should I use .30 grams or higher?  Note: the fps with .2 gram bbs is about 410.  I am hoping the airsoft community at Instructables is willing to help me. Thanks.

How do you make a complicated, fully automatic pen gun that fires BB's?

     Looking from all pen gun instructables, none is trully fully automatic. I came up with the idea of turning a small crank to pull the firing mechanism then release repeatedly. It's kinda' like a gatling gun. But at my disposal are a few HBW pens and no available nor acquirable Bic pens which are wide enough for BB's. I know how to widen HBW pens for BB's but then it's labor intensive. I need another solution. And by the way, people keep talking about loading up a pen with a gravity feed then blowing as hard as I can through the input hole 2, and BB's would spray out the business end. It appears everything here is too simple, so title changed! Don't give me the previous described method.

pumatic airsoft gun help ? Answered

Ok so heres my situation. About 6 months ago I made my own pneumatic airlift sniper but even though I could get about 80 lbs of pressure stored up before I pulled my trigger my sniper only shot as far as my 300 fps gun. My question is why cuz I had a lot more force in my pneumatic sniper then my other gun and it doesn't seem to matter. My sniper was made of a metal nipple about 9 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. I then put a cap on one end and a reducing coupler on the other. I drilled a hole in the cap and inserted a valve that allowed me to attach the chamber to a bike pump. On the end with the reducer I then added a ball valve that worked as my trigger. After the ball valve was another reducing coupler that brought the size down from an inch to 1/2 an inch. Into this coupler I screwed a break line about 50 cm long(sorry about the unit change I don't remeber its length in inches) and it fit the bb very nicely. I also added a little contraption I made from paper clips that allowed the gun to be tired downward without the bb falling out. However I don't believe this was the problem as I fired the gun when their was just a wire across the back of my breakline ,to keep the bb from falling into the gun ,and the distance seemed the same. I made sure every connection before the ball valve was sealed well except that the gun did leak at a rate of 20 lbs for minute because of a bad connection with the valve that connected with the bike pump. If you need more info just say so in the comments but I don't have the gun with me right now so all i have to go off of is my memory. Thanks for your help I really appreciate it. : )

Your opinion on this DOWNGRADE of and airsoft gun ?!?

Hi ... as usual my another airsoft rifle is to powerful for the site rules. Because it's NEW, iw ould like to avoid open it and the gear box as well and change the spring. Or to clip the spring. What about to make a small hole in the valve that is pushing the BB in the barrel ??? With those small/fine drill bits (0.3 - 0.6 mm) ??? That should make the pressure smaller, you wouldn't have to fight with the spring and it would be cheaper to replace it ?!?! Do I see it to optimistic or do you think it could work ??? Thanks ...

Anyone know of a strong, lightweight modeling material?

I am an avid airsoft player and I have always been intrigued and interested in the fancy masks they sell. But honestly, I see no need to pay $89.95 for one with a design if a simple one can be less than $20. I plan on buying one of the cheap masks and sculpting on it the design and pattern I want. The only thing is, I can't think of a good material to sculpt with. Water-based clays dry fairly brittle, and plaster gets heavy.... SO INSTRUCTABLES COMMUNITY, what is a lightweight, yet strong material that i could sculpt with and NOT have shatter or break when shot with airsoft bb's?

Homemade SAPI Plates anyone? Answered

So i just bought a bunch of new tac gear, but mainly a new plate carrier and a bunch of pouches. and while i was out there runin around out there feelin legit, i noticed that with all my gear, the vest kinda flops around without any plates. so im too lazy and cheap to buy a $30 useless hunk of square plastic that no one is ever going to notice, and i wondered, why not homebrew it? so if ANYONE has an instructable or knows how to make fake SAPI "ballistic plates" PLEASE reply...PLEASE          UPDATE- some people seemed to get the impression that im using this for real steel purposes. i can see why they would think that, since i was a bit vague on that part of the question. HELL NO. i will be using this for AIRSOFT. those are 6mm plastic bbs flying at speeds of 350 feet per second maximum. so just about anything works. and im wearing eye protection. so no one is shooting their eyes out either.

Yet ANOTHER K'nex Gun!

Before commenting, be aware that i got rid of this. hahaha Sorry, no pictures yet. The rest of my family (all of the girls in the family) went on vacation down in SC while us manly men went to manly places like tool shops (hahahottopic jk) like home depot and water country usa. And sadly, they took the only camera with them. Their coming back tonight so I should be able to get some PICS of this ttly 1337 gun. Enough of this talks about my life onto the gun. Like I said, I can't take pictures, yet, so I'm just going to list the features from the butt of the gun to ze top. 1. Comfy, buttstock, and a stick type stock w/ ram guide 2. New 2-position realistic angled handle (one position for m16 series standard grip, and another a bit more angled) 3. kinda weird for-grip thing but it's good I guess 4. easy to use scope mount and blade sights 5. around 10-15 round blue rod mag 6. and my favorite part of the gun, the Hop-up! 7. I wouldn't consider this a feature but it looks a b s o l u t e l y bad***. You'll see. just wait... A hopup is basically a bump in the barrel causing the bullet to curve up thus making it hop up. Originally from airsoft guns it presses down on the BB as its leaving the barrel creating a backspin so when it leaves the barrel it curves up increasing range and making it more accurate. Except this doesn't apply to knex bullets since they tend to move MUCH slower and the barrels are their are dents in the middle of them. So with knex you'd have to just put a small dent type thing on the bottom of the barrel instead of backspinning it (which is impossible with knex since their not in a sphere shape). If you really want to know more about hop-up heres a link http://ezinearticles.com/?Hop-Up-in-Airsoft&id;=589601 And finally, sorry I have been so inactive lately, I have been extremely busy more then normal.

Как выбрать онлайн казино?

Что может быть лучше увлекательной и расслабляющей игры? Она снимает стресс, поднимает настроение, делает жизнь интересней и ярче. Все это прекрасно, только если не вредит работе и не разрушает семейную жизнь. Но нормальный человек всегда может остановиться и не бросаться в крайности. Тогда увлечение не приведет к непоправимым последствиям, а будет приносить только радость. Большинство казино предлагают своим посетителям широкий выбор развлечений, разнообразные игры, новейшие игровые автоматы, такие как Кено и многое другое. Однако опытные игроки пристальное внимание уделяют репутации заведения. Ведь правильно выбрав русское казино онлайн, вы можете не только насладиться игрой, но и сорвать крупный куш. Как же выбрать игровой сервис, чтобы не стать добычей нечестных на руку владельцев, не потерять деньги или не стать жертвой шантажа? В первую очередь, следует ознакомиться с черными и белыми списками таких сервисов. Основная их цель – уберечь новичков от обмана. Они составлены на основе отзывов игроков, которые на собственном опыте проверили их честность. Респектабельные казино, типа Winner Casino, не скупятся на различные привилегии и бонусы для своих клиентов. Это прекрасный способ получить постоянных посетителей и надежную рекламу. Хорошей приметой является возможность играть онлайн казино бесплатно. Это значит, что владельцы не спешат нажиться на неопытности своих игроков, а предпочитают честную игру. И еще один момент. Всегда стоит обращать внимание на дизайн сайта. Качественное оформление стоит недешево, и мошенники, вынужденные часто менять свой адрес, обычно не тратятся на него. Учитывайте эти нюансы при выборе места для игры. Это позволит защититься от обмана.
