Paintball Cap-Guns

BANG

Modify a paintball gun to use cap-gun ammo (the paper strip type, not the six shooter rings) so it makes a loud bang when you fire, as well as shooting a paintball.

It would add an extra edge to paintballing as people could locate you when you fire, but also vice versa.

Speaking of propane powered markers. Check out the link. Now all you need is a pilot light and you'll be blasting away. [FunkyMunky, Feb 28 2006]

       This would help. Muzzle flash would be good as well.   

       [2 fries] a camera flash inside a tube mounted below the barrel?
[DF] + on the sound idea.

       [DF] have you been paintballing ? the guns (or whatever it is the painballers call them, they've got a special name) make a fair old noise on their own.

       Markers.   

       But yeah the muzzle flash is a neat idea.

       They do have a flash of sorts. It's not a light flash but a flash of CO2 or Nitrogen (whichever they are using). They also do make a fair bit of an audible crack when they fire. Would be a cool thing to do though.

       Quote from a spud gun site: 'New stuff is cool, but new stuff that makes loud bangs and shoots things rules!'

       If you used butane or propane instead of CO2, and put a small pilot light by the muzzle, you might get a nice flash, without affecting the velocity of the ball (too much).

       See the link I posted about propane powered markers.
