From what I have remembered owning a Red-Ryder BB gun, it was spring loaded but after you pumped it once you could not pump it again. It would either be a very simple or extremely difficult to make some sort of peice to keep from "multi" pumping. All around a good idea of sorts, great for scenario play like civil war or something.

P.S If anyone was wondering, I cant hardly make it on here to post so much, just pop in every now and again.

ill refer back to my previous post and ask "what happens if some joker decides to pump ten or twenty times???"

If you define cowardice as running away at the first sign of danger, screaming and tripping and begging for mercy, then yes, Mr. Brave man, I guess I'm a coward.

hmm.  You'd need some huge intricate pump design to make it stockpile enough pressure in a single pump.

plausable concept.  you could probably get a hold of some drawings of real lever action rifles and add in a plunger to compress the air needed for firing,  but i could be kinda hard to generate enough pressure in just one pump (which is the only way it would seem practical to do this)

the problem that i can see with this is a lot of bb guns you can pump over and over, thus achieving a greater velocity..........i dont want to get hit with a ball going 400 fps please

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

Make it tube fed with spring pressure. Magazine on top of the barrel. Not sure you will be able to generate enough pressure to fire 300fps though.

Wouldn't it be cool if a "BB gun" company made a Paintball gun. Now I'm  talking basicaly a Red rider with larger, removeable barrel and reinforced parts or parts made some sort of metal. Now there would be problems with it such as controling Velocity and ROF. Also what kind of hopper would it take if any? But heck! If I could get my hands on one of thos, I'd quite speedball and play stricly rec ball. I might have to do some tinkering tonight to see what It would take and see if it would be acutaly possible.

Pros: Never ever have to buy air, could be very consitent run on pressurized air, and it would just look ganster.

Cons: Very slow rate of fire and ???s about how much punch the red rider air pump has..... could it projest a Paintball?????? Thats all I could come up with.

Please don't Flame the heck out of me.

 Any Thoughts on the Idea. Input a preciated.
