I Made an insert for my PGP paintball pistol so that I could fire short quarrels out of it. with hobby brass tubing. It’s fairlly impressive, & accurate with broad heads! but still has some bugs to work out. If you can find some powdered CS you could fill some paintballs with it. I saw recently on TV where the cops are using this concept. asfar as the airgun goes what calliber is it? what type of mechanism ie. co2  powerelett , phenumatic pump, spring piston. or what?

one could take a serenge and replace the paint in a paintball with something more dangerouse

you can always freeze your paintballs, or use .68 ball bearings. as for your bb gun, i think you can use a part of an antenna and fill it with sum explosives or sumthing.

If any of your guns have a chamber for air to compress, enlarge that chamber and you’ll pack a bit more power, also you could try dipping the barrel in water, freezing it, then removing the gun with the barrel plugged with ice. When the ice starts to melt, it should be free moving within the barrel. what you do is shoot the icicle, break a window or something and the evidence melts away.

i have done this with Fox Urine (avaliable at any hunting store) but only use it if your prepared to have alot of people mad at u for making them smell like piss. and i have also used glow in the dark paint (good for night games)

I’m sure that did the trick real good, was there a reason that you used fox urine instead of your own? I know what fox urine is used for but I don’t see the point in wasteng expensive fox urine when you can make your own for free

If you have a spring piston gun, I read a book not to long ago by a Britt who said he had figured out a way to inject a light oil into the compresion cylinder so that it would reliably diesel and  boost the power up to that of a 22. you might think about something like that. Also I belive that a pistol primer will fit 117. cal just right to make an exploding round.

omg! no! don’t ever freeze water inside of a paintball marker’s barrel! you’ll screw it up completely.
also frozen paintballs i’d only use if it was an old barrel you’re not gonna use in tournament anymore…
paintball barrels are mostly made of aluminium that is easily susceptible to scratches and it corrodes when frozen…

plus if u froze water in the end of your gun the ice would exspand and aluminnium is really soft so it would fuck it up completely

come on, be a man, buy stainless steal. that way all the little tricks will work

— Posted by Sicopath on 5:52 am on Mar. 19, 2002

Stainless steel – Amen to that.

                                      How did you keep the urine from disolving the gelatin that the paint ball is made out of? I’ve tried this several times, with different liquids and within twenty minutes the balls had pretty much melted.

You said that you wanted something that would do some damage. Well for croud control etc. you could go get some 410 SG shells and glue, tape ,whatever some streamers onto the front. wrap them orund the shell as wadding/pressure seal then glue a bb to the primer and use it as an indirect fire system. just make sure that you get plenty of range so your not in the blast radius.

Whenever I decide to modify a BB gun I first decide what I wanna do. Lets say you want to make this fire a larger projectile I.E. a marble. (I am not sure if this would work because I still have to test it, but its just an example.) What I would do is first remove the barrel & air chamber. Take the barrel off & replace it with some PVC pipe. Make a nice clean seal by using some rubber cement or something like that. Now if you want to put it back into its casing (big pain in the ass in this case I would think because of the larger barrel) you can do it. If you decide not to or realize you can’t then make a trigger for it. Last I would build a stock out of wood & attach the whole thing. Paint it if you want & your done. To load drop a marble down the barrel, pump, & fire.

bigger barrel -> larger projectile -> less power = not good.
the power of a BB-gun is already very low, no need to make it even less…

— Posted by supafreeak on 12:26 am on Mar. 25, 2002

the easiest way to cause harm with a bb gun or paintball gun is to get those little darts or “bolts” for the bb gun and put some kind of poison on the tip of it.  for the PBG…you can order .68 cal darts from a paintball magazine that are about 6 inches long and that alone can cause serious harm, or if thats not enought you can add poison to that too.  also the idea with the sections of old telescoping antennas also works well, but you have to put some kind of fletching on them to make them accurate (fletching is the little finlike things on the back end of arrows).

I still want to know how he kept the urine from melting the paintball? anyone else tried this with any kind of liquid?

    ok freezing paitballs will not work any more alll and i mean allll paintballs now days are made with oil instead of water so it wont freez its a new law no matter how you try it and paintballs will deteriorate when you put piss in them the paintball shells dissolve in water so this jack ass lier is just trying to be the cool one of the bunch. reason for no longer being able to freez some kids in texas were going around shooting frozen balls through stop signs crazy huh lol dangerous if you want to hurt something buy a real gun or a wrist rocket with the med sized buck shot those will kill. you cant much modify bb guns wells airsoft p90 and 10/22 rugger project look it up and bigger projectile smaller power well your a tard stupid you think we want to go bigger projectile and same speed no fuck tard we want more speed too currently using hk usp rep.177 cal 40 bucks good buy if you wanna be a dick go buy the rubber balls for the paintball guns they fucking hurt or setup a improvised bee bomb like the riot police use

    Nobody even mentioned a portable compressor a couple of fittings and some hose.Some of those can give you well over 100 psi.That will take care of all size and weight issues.Power inverter , electric compressor with 4 gal tank, .68 ball bearings and now you have portable (drive around) power.

    P.s. Duck!

  • erox

    Yeah, the oil based paint has little to no water. Even so the piantball becomes larger when or if it is frozen which can cause them to get stuck in your barrel. I want to do something like expand the air chamber in my phenumatic pump bb gun. Any one got any ideas on how? Its a .177 cal (4.5mm) 760 pumpmaster.
