Well in order to get one you have to kind of know the guy, or atleast be very friendly, but you have to be completly serious if you want to get one. The current running price is I think $230 for a conversion of a KP series sheridan. That conversion includes the stock and the lever assembly. The kp itself wil run you around $375, in fair condition. So at the very least your looking at $600.
This is a good condition KP2:

This is a lever action kp2 (kL), with a whole load of palmer goodies like performance tune, nickle plating, muzzle break,spring feed, speed changer and new feed plugs.

Just to let everyone know, there already is a lever action paintball gun, but you have to be "in the circle", if you dont know if your "in the circle" than that means your probably not in it.

you can get 6mm paintballs. I usea rhem in my airsoft gun it mite work in a bb gun as well. the 6mm paintballs are way more fun than the stupid plastic bbs that you normally shot in airsoft guns

 My dad has a red ryder (Things acient, instead of using O-rings like paintball it uses leather seals which are busted and we cant fix )

Anyway, I cant remember what size BB it uses, but BB guns dont fire airsoft paintballs or any of that kind..

 

BUt it would be an awesome idea

been done... the K series from sheridan is a decendant of their BB guns. a nice KP2 will run about $350-$450 and another $1,100 for the lever action conversion.

i think...might be 1100 total. il try and post a link

The extra pumps could be stopped by having a relief valve when the pressure exceeds a certain limit. To the point where any additional pumps would be useless.

Ok quick questing would you rather be hit at 200 fps or 1000+ fps? hmmm? Ok then, the ones that reach such a high felosity need more than one pump, I think he is trying to go with one that only needs one and not several.

this probably wouldn't be to hard to do. Useing smaller caliber paint balls, and make it so it runs off one of those 12g CO2 canisters, lever would simply load the Ball and reset the bolt. Ultimately its just a pump action. Forget about modifying a bigger pressure chamber and all. Just need to put in CO2, and with plastic stocks, their is a lot of room.

Edit - I think their is a CO2 lever action BB gun out their. I know I've seen CO2 powered BB rifles, just don't know if it was lever action or not.

Hate to be a prick but you are going to have to show your calculations for me to buy that.
The idea is valid, and quite possibly something that may sell.
It will require someone to build one of these beasts.
I would buy one. I have been wanting a pump action shotgun for years now. Sceptre teased me...then cancelled the project.
This would even be cooler than a pump gun. No 12 grams needed.
But even they were needed I would still buy one.
Cool factor is big in the scenario world.
Not sure what happened to Scepter and the pump shotgun looking pump gun.
I would have given a cool $1000 for one of those....but they don't exist. And probably never will.

I have been thinking about it, the barrel consist of a tube of steel with plastic on the inside for the bb( if i remember my old one), I was thinking it might be just the right size for the paintball without the plastic on the inside. Hmmm maybe some blueprinting and a good machinist and this could be a wise idea. ( i want .5% if this goes big lol jp)

Im sure if one of us looks hard enough or is smart enough with math and equations there would be a plausible equation for the size of the piston and chamber to amount of pressure needed to reach velocity. or find a spring big enough for it lol.

A paintball is a much larger projectile, requiring a larger amount of air to launch.


This^^^ is what I was getting at.....<sigh>.

This is a plausible idea. Not sure about it being a single pump. Probably need to be a multiple pump, unless you increase the size of the piston and air chamber.
