Default Triumphant Return

You would have never guessed I would return. and most of you may be thinking "Who the hell is this guy?"

Well I may not be a famous poster from years ago but I did pitch my part in
RPIII Storm Breaker. Wich I stopped half way through due to family business back in the UK. But now I am back with

5 NEW HOMEMADES that I will be posting tutorials for soon


This is my first one, And one of my most potent ones. I don't know the rating system yet but I would say it is about as powerful as 5 CPS-2000's in riot mode. It was also cheap
$30 for a homemade that has a long firing time of 48 seconds with a 1/8 nozzle.

others are a tripod turret and a bike mounted system for dogfights.

Welcome back!

Looks like a fairly basic pressurized reservoir gun. Is there any particular reason other than for looks that the gun has a barrel and looks to be just over a foot?

Do you mind measuring some statistics? Range and output in particular. This guide should help.

Welcome back.

That's looking pretty nice! Good to see some new designs. Any statistics or pictures of it firing would be great. Feel free to post the remainder of your homemade water guns and keep up the good work!

Oh sure.

The gun's overall length is just over 3 feet
The reservoir has a max PSI of 160, I don't think I ever go over 90
The gun is very powerful and uses a quality bike pump that gets a full
charge in under 15 pumps with a reservoir filled to 3/4 with water.

I am going to run tests today to rate it's nozzle and prime operating conditions

How many pumps does it generally take.
Congratulations on what seems to be an excellent homemade.
WELCOME BACK! by the way.

I usually pump around 10 for a good stream at 1/8 nozzle size
