Default Home Made Airgun for small game, birds and fishing

Hi all, im new here as ya can see,

just to let yas know a bit more baout me i own a compound bow but have recently gone into airgun hunting/small game

So yer, I use an airgun for hunting, with a twist... i made the gun.

i use it for small game i.e: rabbits, foxes and even fish and birds.

i fire 5/8" lead balls at around 500-600fps at around 300psi.

heres a few pics of it, and a few carp i shot with it.











feel free to leave a comment, and im also happy to answer any questions you may have

* im also happy to post more pics/give more specifications on the gun itself.

peace

Edit: Updated post, embedded pictures

Chaos, you're here!!!! It' windshrike from theopia!!!
Yeah not really gonna say anything bout the gun already told you it was awesome forever ago. Never thought about posting my homemade airguns here, now I have to see if the digital camera can be found.

EDIT: brod_man, never ask ANYONE for plans when it comes to something like this(homemade air guns, potato guns, etc.). If you can't figure it out for yourself, you shouldn't be building it. It's just a piston-valve in a T-fitting actuated by a high pressure blowgun. Try www.spudfiles.com for information.

EDIT: EDIT: OOOh I got steel hunting pellets for my slingshot that should make great buckshot. Course theyre expensive I'll try making a vid of mine shooting something probably with a dart or shotgun blast of fishing weights.

OK found the camera now I need batteries...............

You've never seen people on www.spudfiles.comexplode when noobs ask for plans. Just go figure it out,check the spud wiki, the wiki button on spudfiles is at the top right. And also don't copy someones design, have some originality.20+ psi is no joke, let alone 100-400 psi, the standard operating pressure of most homemade guns. At 100 psi with dart ammunitionmy sprinklervalve gun shoots THROUGH 6" solid rocksheet(my wall). And rocksheet is tougher than plywood. Thats atabout 500 fps(chronoed).

Guess not, I think that the 9:1 C:B ratio has something to do with my gun's power.
