    PVC Blowgun (Write Up)

    Post  JacobYeah on Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:12 am


    Ok, This is essentially a piece of 1/2 inch pvc cut to length and turned into a blowgun. The production cost of this is around 1-5 dollars.


    First, gather your materials:



    (Pic is upside down lol)

    Youll Need:


    1/2 Inch PVC (Im using electrical PVC)
    A Hacksaw/Dremel/pipecutter/whatever you want to cut your pipe with
    Sandpaper
    Darts



    Next, You want to cut your pipe around 3 feet long as shown

    you can cut yours 2 or 4 if you want, but 3 seems to be ideal





    Next, you want to widen the entrance holes on both sides of the pipe so the dart exits and enters easier. (you can do this with sandpaper or a dremel or an xacto knife, whatever you prefer)









    Note:


    My pipe had this larger end at the top, which makes a perfect mouth piece. See if you can find a piece like this.




    Ok, thats it for the building stage

    Next Get your darts


    Note, Taggers and whistlers work best, as stickys and streamlines tend to be to loose.


    You want to insert your dart at the end your going to be blowing into, Like shown. Not too far in, just at the tip




    Thats it. FIRE!!!!!!


    Mine is hitting about 40ft Flat, 50-60 with an angle.
    It all depends on how much air you can output. I hav a relatively small lung capacity, so people with large built chests or singers or people with larger lung capacities are probably gonna get further ranges


    Note:

    regular pvc works just as fine, i just like my electrical pvc one better








    Happy Blowgunning!


    -EDIT-




    Turns out that the so called mouthpiece is acutally an inbuilt coupler/joiner. Hmmmm

    Cool! I made something similar once, it was almost silent so it was fairly useful in certain twilight and night games. and hearing a random whistler come at you from out of nowhere catches you well off guard. Perhaps you could add a dart holder, or if you were feeling artistic, create some form of camouflage for it or bed the pipe inside a length of bamboo for that more "authentic" look.

    Yeah, I was thinking about painting it black cause it doesnt look like a gun but just a black piece of pipe. It would be great for night wars cuz it would be indetectable!

    But im just gonna keep it as a prototype and make a better one when i get more materials

    Brilliant homemade!
    Is this your first home made cus it looks pretty cool
    Also, wouldnt a long piece of pipe be difficult to hold or aim?? and wouldn't a longer pipe kill the range?? (not sure if this is true)
    A good camo and some NF dart holders on the side will make it brilliant!!

    Well, that's how %90 of natives used to hunt with darts, these are pretty accurate when doing the brass breech on my longshot my gf and i screwd around by just sticking darts in a 9/16 and shooting them out.
