Hey guys. Im trying to make a homemade airsoft gun, and have many ideas about it but im stuck on one thing. How does the BB stay in without rolling. If i have a magazing, as long as the pellet doesn't move i can have a gravity/spring fed magazine without a problem. someone please help! How does the pellet not roll in the barrel when it is chambered and ready to go? thanks, tristan

There's this guy on youtube named GatheringSticks made a working shotgun out of a Bostitch staple gun. can anyone look into this, possibly research it and build a less-lethal(and less-illegal) version of this? I can't access youtube from this PC, but the video is easy to find, just search "homemade shotgun" I had been planning on making a single-shot pistol from a Stanley staple gun that I have, but I just don't have the necessary tools... yet... and don't worry, my version was going to be for self-defense and home protection. also, if someone does make an instructable for a staple-BB-gun, I might use the basics of that for my "StaPistol"

Very long story short, I'm making a BB gun. I've got the basic ideas and mechanics almost done, its just a matter of making it work and materials. One of my big problems right now is that the gun will be .177, but it's going to mimic the look of an old flint or caplock muzzleloading pistol, which ranged from .36 all the way up to .80 in the largest ones. Obviously the barrel will have to be concealed within a larger, false barrel. My problem is making the real barrel attach securely without negatively affecting accuracy because it's off center. fitting the breech of the real barrel with a nut or a thread insert has crossed my mind, but I'm not sure if It will be enough. pictured are some examples of caplocks so you have an idea of what the finished product is planned to look like

Anyone have any good airsoft ideas, devices, bombs, claymores, or other things to help you get the upper hand in an airsoft war, because I'm getting owned by higher fps guns with a faster rate of fire. Any sort or non toxic smoke bomb would be nice. Just post anything related to airsoft here...

I ended up getting a Crosman Vantage. It was on sale for $70. I think the MSRP is $145. Yeah, I know, it's just a budget springer. But that was what I was looking for. Not something to last me the rest of my life. It has a good reputation for decent accuracy if you use the artillery hold. With 7.9 grain pellets it should be getting about 900 +/- FPS. It came in the mail the other day. Pyramid air has fast shipping. The wood is acceptable, and the barrel lock up is very solid and their is practically no barrel droop. I haven't shot it yet, but the barrel is very easy to cock for a sub magnum springer. Of course I only cocked it 80% of the way and I don't want to dry fire it. I have some Crosman Premier Hollow Points to try in it, as well as some cheap pointed pellets and destroyers I'll use to break it in. I think it will be fine for tin can killing. Not sure it's the best hunting implement, since the included scope is meh.

I'm looking to buy a Crosman M1 Carbine from the late sixties or early seventies. My relatives in the Midlands had one when I would visit them, and I miss that plinker to death. I asked them about it and they said they sold it at a yard sale a while ago. Now that I'm in Ohio, I can own one legally, but can't seem to find one. The rifle is out of production, and every Goodwill, thrift store, and garage sale I've been to has yielded nothing. So, if anyone has one of these rifles in preferably functioning condition and with the wood furniture and "magazine", I will gladly buy it. A broken plastic rifle with no magazine I will also accept. If anyone either is willing to sell theirs or knows where I can acquire one, please let me know.

Hello you all, Not new from visiting, but anyway, I have these parts, etc, that I am hoping someone is able to tell me a way, or how I can use them, to build an aeg, or something of the like _ a few motors with a gear on them. Some plastic gears. Airbrush thing from testors, and propellant can, the remains, everything but the gearbox, one of the gears. the remains of a umarex, sig 5522 commando including the plastic outside, mag, and all, just the gearbox is totaled, and so is one of the gears, and the one of the soddered on cable joints to the motor has come off again. plenty of large and small springs. maybe some wood if any, paperclips. With the stuff, or some mentioned, Can anyone tell me how I can make a mechanism, or something so the sig can shoot again. ;D would greatly appreciate help. Crews

Hi everyone, i was looking to buy a decent CO2 bb gun, of which i found many, but always had the same problem. No American store would ship to UK. I looked everywhere at many stores, but all said the same that they shipped to USA only. The selection of guns we have in Britain are poor(as far as i've seen) and very expensive, and i have a budget of about $100 or Â£50. Could anyone recommend me how to get round this, and/or show me good guns available to U.K. All help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, ronmcd

I accidently shot myslef in the hand with a bb gun. I now have a .177cal copper bb lodged a few centimeters in my palm, just under my middle finger. Its restricting any movement of that finger and hurts alot. Besides seeing a doctor, does anyone have any suggestions?*24 hour update*Hey dudes, thanks for all of your helpful suggestions. I would go to the ER but I'm deadly afraid of doctors, nurses, dentists, and the like. So, at about 4:45pm (pacific time) today, I attempted to extract the bb myself. first off, I took and hanful of cottonballs and stuffed them in my mouth to muffle the screaming. Then, I went at it with an ear-wax remover I picked up from the local chinese pharmacy................................................OUCH!......................................Unsuccesful.*48 hour update*At about 8:00am this morning, I succesfully extracted the bb with a small wire fashioned into a loop <=========. yeah, sort of like that. Needless to say, it hurt a bunch. It is now 11:30am same day, and my hand is already feeling better (duh). And (though still painful) I can move all of my fingers. The way I see it, I'll be totally healed in a few days. Hopefully.*One Week Update*Its been about one week from the day I shot my hand and I'm happy to report that I am now without pain and Infection-Free. Thanks everybody for all the helpful suggestions. Even though in the end I used my own way of dealing with the problem.

Hello. I made a Paintball-to-Airsoft-sniper conversion about a year ago. (Instructable soon! Don't worry. And another one after that!) I saw these Barrage barrels and wanted to know if anyone uses them or has used them, and what they think. My conversion uses a longer home-made barrel, not a Barrage barrel. These barrels are used in normal paintball guns to shoot BBs in .117 (bb gun bbs) or Airsoft (6mm) calibers. The barrel comes as a one-piece part that you just screw on. It has a Feet-Per-Second adjustment that supposedly ranges from 175FPS to 450FPS. There is an attached hopper that you put the ammo in. the barrels are about ten inches long, and made of solid aluminum. Anyway, anyone know anything about them?

I’ve made a coil gun out of a disposable camera (utilizing it’s capacitor). It shot bbs about 3 inches, and then they’d roll along the floor. To get coil guns to work you need a high voltage, discharged quickly. I’ve seen there are cheap stunguns on Ebay you can buy for $12-$15 shipped. In the 2.8 million volts range. I think they have enough voltage to propel a bb pretty good, but my question is do they discharge fast enough?

I'm wanting to build a heat sink for my head/pillow at night. The reason? My head frequently gets too hot at night giving me bad dreams, headaches, and sometimes keeping me up for hours. What I've come up with is steel or copper BBs contained in a thin plastic bag to prevent corrosion and enclosed in fabric for comfort and durability. Does anyone have a better idea, especially for the heat sink (metal) part?

I just wanted to share a bit of my Airsoft Guns, Including a ARES TAR 21 (NOT S&T;). And a KWC full auto Co2 blowback desert eagle. I love them both and these are the two guns that I'd never sell out of the collection. The TAR runs off a 9.6 volt and a 8.4 volt battery. I also have three 180RND mid caps and the 300RND high cap that it came with. (I only run the mid cap magazines in this gun). It has a full metal gearbox, gears, bushings, barrel, (Inner and out). Ive also installed a EOtech 552 sight up top. Its also flat dark earth. It shoots 380 FPS using .20gram BBS. I only run G&G; .20 gram BBS in it. It gets lubed and cleaned after every use of 1000 rounds through it (not during battles though). It also has full trade marks of the real TAR 21 on its side. It gets stored along its accessories in its Elite Force gun bag. The Desert Eagle runs off Co2 stored in its magazine, along with the BBS. It holds 21 BBS and can spray them all in less than a second. It kicks back tremendously and its also full metal internals and externals. The magazine is also metal. It can shoot 386FPS using .20 gram BBS. I only run .20 gram G&G; BBS through it. Once again it gets cleaned after every use, lubed and polished. It also has trademarks on the handle and on both sides of the slide. It also gets stored in a very nice gun bag. I also have a broken M4S-system. Which broke during battle. The lower broke off from the upper. Pieces were lost. It was a A&K; M4S-system, which I actually want the D-boys one now... The gun is hidden under my bed... :( On a side note I also have a large UTG camo bag that holds my elite force goggles, extra goggles, gear, vest, pants, shirt, neck guard. ETC. My BBS, parts, Alan wrenches, hop up tools ETC. It also has my name on it. So tell me what you think and also tell me what your guns are and how you treat them!!! :D

I dont want to be rude or anything, but I was wondering if I could get featured, I mean my instructable matches all the requirements(Pictures,Spelling/Grammer, Good Documentation) , and even hackaday/kipkay on youtube featured my idea . Here it is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Co-Axial-Pneumatic-BB-Gun/ Here is my Hackaday Feature: http://hackaday.com/2013/03/06/this-maglite-is-a-bb-gun/ And here is what kipkay did with my idea, he gave me a shoutout in the description: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJq5w7gVdtM

Hello I need some help concerning the creation of my super BBMG (bb machine gun) you see I have a green medical regulation aluminum oxygen cylinder (see picture, it is about 3 feet tall and about 3-3.5 inches in diameter) and I am wondering if I pressurize it to 100 psi how long would I be able to maintain a steady rate of fire? Also, my bbmg is made of 3/4 inch pvc pipe and is about 4-5 inches long not including barrel the air inlet is a blow gun valve with a opening the size of a airsoft BB the actual bb outlet is of the same size as the air inlet only the barrel is 3 feet long (I don't think the barrel length will affect the over all time of sustained fire but I don't know for sure) if anyone can help me with this I would be extremely appreciative thanks, fidgety2

As I understand electromagnets, you wrap a wire coil around an iron rod and run current through the coil. As long as there's current going through the coil, you have a magnet... But when you cut the current, no more magnetism... I want to create a circuit in which a hand crank charges up one or more batteries or capacitors, which in turn discharge slowly through an electromagnetic coil (such that the magnetic field of the electromagnet gradually diminishes) over the course of an hour or so. The overall idea is that you crank the crank for a short while, creating a magnetic field so that BBs cling to the electromagnet. But little by little, over the course of maybe 20 or 30 minutes (longer would be OK), the BBs drop off one by one (or a few at a time). Can anyone suggest what such a circuit might look like? What variables will determine how long the crank has to be turned, how strong the magnetic field will be and how slowly it will discharge? And will the BBs only cling to the ends of the electromagnet? Or will they cling along the length of it as well?

I looked at how to do it, and I still don't understand well enough to do it quickly. Could someone make a GOOD instructables on how to do it please? Thanks in advance, BB

The other day I was shooting at one of the invading spawn of killerjackalope with my slingshot. The ickle bastard teleported away, and my BB struck my sidewalk instead, ricocheting into my front window...

My homemade marble cannon the MC-200 has, and can be repurposed to fire hundreds of airsoft bb's at once. It is too dangerous (not to mention hefty... It's 6 feet long!) to fire directly at people, so it makes a good mortar. I only ended up paying $20 for it is the best part too.

This is my airsoft shotgun. It is quite near completion, however, i'm stuck. I have two m120(?) springs powering this beast. I need to come up with a trigger system that will hold back all of this force, while still having a semi-easy trigger pull. There is a metal screw that needs to be held back once i pump the, well, pump (the screw is pushed back by the pump.) Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. (BTW, i thought about a paint ball gun's trigger, but the only problem with that is that the screw has to lock back too far for this to be a viable option.) Also, the third picture is a shell. It would be filled with approx. 30 bbs and a cotton ball or toilet paper would plug both ends. The bolt has a part that extends through the shell and would force the bbs out.

I made the scope using knex and duct tape ok maybe i bought it at Walmart for $8.98 two years ago (Daisy 4x BB) but the point is that that there knex gun is pimped out (its killerks magnum or whatever, only cause it was on hand at the time) I hope to god that no one needs an instuctable for this...

Is there a RC plane or aircraft, (like helicopters or hovercrafts) that can carry a camera and drop a payload. This would be great for pranks or dropping weapons for allies in an airsoft war, maybe even shoot airsoft bb's, that would be awesome. If you know how to make at least the first two or know a product that can do that tell me.

So i was exploring my backyard woods, when i came across an animal burrow. This worries me because it's roughly a foot in diameter and located near our chicken coop. so i need ideas to drive this animal away. I have a bb gun and no trapping license or real gun.
