Paintballs aint gonna do anything but piss an animal off. Sure some might run off but you gonna end up with one crazy one that will turn around and attack once attacked.


As for the oil we use water based lubes. Anything oil based destroys o-rings. Silicone based just makes cleanup harder. In a pinch astro glide works it just doesn't last long.
My opinions are my own. If you disagree with them please take a big healthy crap in your hands and give yourself a round of applause.

I think a Skeets reality show could be entertaining.
Insert idiotic mantra here.

If a raccoon turned to attack, I'm 50ft-70ft away, plenty time to close the door behind me or grab the pellet gun that's 3ft away, or also run at em and punt em like a football. That would be the most "dangerous" animal to run in our yard lmao. About 3 years ago we had a rabid(I have to assume) squirrel that was in our yard at night, it wouldn't run away and the closer I got it started hissing. He got shot and I found bloody stool in the corner of the tree when I went to bag him up.






So vaseline isn't a good idea either? I see a lot of videos with people using vaseline for their parts.

I remember starting a thread about that squirrel I shot, if I remember it was taken down probably due to the "graphic image"

Found the picture, not going to use img tags so this thread don't get deleted also :(

Just in the nic of time!!! POW POW POW.


Messing around with garbage trying to make an adapter for the tippmann 98 to fit the 10 shot magazine tubes from this er2 pistol. While ugly as fuck and can be redone with less damaged results, a certain* cut bottle has a tapered neck that clamps perfectly into the feed elbow. The 10 shot magazine fit perfectly snug and I can swap it out to the original hopper without removing the adapter.


Anyways, middle of testing the swapability(smacking the hopper to see if it falls out of the adapter) my alarm goes off... So I took the hopper off and dropped a hand of balls into the elbow and ran outside. Spun the 12g adapter and cocked the gun, open the door and a raccoon is on the bird feeder and a possum in the middle of the yard sniffing around.... Took sight on the racoon and popped off all shots(I guess the neck\adapter with no mag holds 5 balls, 6 with one in chamber if I cocked it before). 2 shots in the face, I think the first got in his eyes, he fell off the feeder and stood there looking around before he got shot the 2nd time in the face. He ran into the tree a few times before turning around to go under the deck, got 2 body shots and missed the 5th. Meanwhile the possum is still sitting there sniffing out the grass. Lmao

FWIW, I found it very difficult to find suitable projectiles for paint ball guns. Mentos used to fit perfectly, I'd leave them in the wrapping, and cut 3 off, and manually loaded, they worked well. Then, Mentos changed size.

I've been to every craft store looking for suitably sized nylon balls, no luck.

I replaced the hammer spring with a beefier one, took a little off the valve return spring, and from the CO2 connector, to the bolt, opened up the ports a little.

The problem, is that past a certain velocity, the paint balls vaporize in the barrel. I tried freezing them, but they never fly straight, as the paint freezes in the bottom of the paintball, causing it to be imbalanced.

My solution was to fabricate a smaller bore barrel insert, and use marbles. I had to make reducers for the hoppers, and make a new ball stopper where they chamber, (otherwise if you lowered the muzzle, being open bolt, they would all roll through the barrel due to gravity).

It worked well. Electronic selective trigger group, (S 1 3 A) and finished. Puts marbles through both sides of a Gyprock wall now. It wont penetrate a car door, but leaves significant dents, and devastates auto glass.

Still smoothbore, so forget about long range accuracy.

A grenade is not an option. Don't need holes in the tool shed(it's thin sheet aluminum...)

As far as projectiles, I have bottles similar to SKU 9647763, and they fit down the barrel somewhat snug. Figure I could add some weight to the tip and pretend it's an arrow lmao.
