Build a Paintball Gun
How to Make Your Own Paintball Gun from Home
You can build a paintball gun on your own and amaze all of your friends! It really is not hard to do so once you understand what the gun is and how it works. First let us start off with that information.
A paintball gun is simply a tube that uses air to push out a paintball.
Everything else is pretty obvious (regarding the explosion of the paintballs on impact and all).
So really what you need to do is just find a way to get a lot of air quickly into a tube that houses a paintball and pushes it out the other end.
So how do we do this?
Well, there are many different ways to make your own paintball gun and everyone will probably adapt their own. After all, if you build a paintball gun you would like it to be unique, right?
But for the most part the materials required to create the paintball gun will be the same. When doing very custom paintball guns you will be adding other materials or going more in depth.
Some items you will be needing are an air compressor (or an air cartridge such as those the guns use), some PVC pipe that is about the same diameter as the paintballs (you want the paintballs to be pressurized and be pushed out of the pipe, and if the pipe is too big the air will just blow past them), and some glue.
A very basic design would be to take three pipes and use them to create the barrel, handle, and the loader (of even more basic would be two pipes, one for the barrel and one for the handle).
You will need a hole near the back of the barrel at the top for loading paintballs into it, and then you will put your air source into the back (such as your air compressor). Just let air out quickly and watch the paintball fly!
Keep in mind that although this is a way of making new paintball guns the design is also extremely basic. It will not be nearly as accurate or as great as the ones bought in stores, but at least you can have the pride of knowing you created it.
Afterwards, you can show your friends how to build a paintball gun and then you can go and make other paintball equipment together, like better paintball gun barrels! Maybe you could even create paintball cannon plans.
