DIY Airsoft Project Gets Two Upgrades: $4 Version And “Flamethrower” Version

By David Ponce

A week ago we featured a homemade Airsoft gun project that chewed through pellets like Eric Cartman gets through Cheezy Poofs. It looked like a fun, cheap ($15) project but a new video shows us how to make it even better. In one case, YouTube user Nighthawinlight details how to drop the overall cost to $4 and to make the device completely handheld. This involves manually squeezing a soda bottle to create the pressure to expel the pellets; the results are a lot more impressive than you’d imagine.

In the other case, he ramps things up by hooking the original “gun” to a portable source of air pressure which does away with a compressor altogether. It involves pressure-rated PVC pipes and a backpack, and you end up looking like you’re wearing a flamethrower outfit. Only instead of deadly flames turning your enemies to dust, you get a fearsome stream of pellets that… well, that are still going to get you in a heap of trouble if you point them at anyone.

Check out the video to learn how to make your own.
