Maybe I'm Crazy...

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make a classic airsoft gun from a paintball marker's internals for the firing system? If I'm the first to even contemplate this, that's sad.

Wouldn't count on it. According to the Classic Airsoft Faq thats stickied, for an airsoft gun to be a classic it needs to have an external C02 tank and be out of production. All you would be doing is hooking up the shooting mechanism. It would still need the external C02 tank and of been in production at one point, then out of production. But I like your idea, it would be pretty interesting.

Well, that's what I mean by keeping the firing system: keeping the external CO2 system that markers have.

Well you would need a classic body and such...Without that you have classic type internals with new externals

I wouldn't count on it. Paintball guns have bolts that forces the paintball out. The only thing I could think of is if you made your own cylinder, airnozzle, and all of that.

 

EDIT: Oh, I was wrong. I looked at a 3D model and it works similarly to airsoft guns. The bolt pushes forward and allows air/CO2 to come through that propels the ball and pulls back to allow the new ball to fall down. If you made your own feeding system, or modded a new one it would probably work. But you would need to make your own airnozzle , cylinder, some kind of piston that attaches to the bolt. (These are just my ideas, Its your project)

Don't you dare say that. lol :a-laugh:

 

Anyways, though, it won't be classic even if it possible. It'll be classic-type or pseudoclassic or sumpin'. However I do think it is possible.
