I'm building my first homemade right now. It has about a 45 balloon pc, which amazingly shoots pretty far. This is pretty cool, considering that with a 21k it takes about 55 balloons just to get a 20 foot range increase. It's design will feature some very strange things that allow it to be easily used to decrease the cost of my next homemades, and modify the performance itself. The reservoir has a screw-off cap and detaches from the rest of the gun for less weight. The pump-to-reservoir connecting pipe also screws off to change the gun's shape. The pump itself can also be taken off, leaving one one-way valve leading to the pc and trigger. Next Time I build I homemade I will make most of the parts interchangeable with this one, so that it will cut cost by as much as 50%. It also has a no-leak tracked pump.

Awesome, man, the design really works! I would have used regular homemade nozzles if I were you [less work, no glue], but if it that works that way then, it works. How much do you fill the pc, and with how many pumps?

Awesome homemade! You might want to fix the leaks on the the nozzle, but otherwise very nice. I might build a small one of these as a backup for myself...

Now I can't wait to make my own. Money is tight for me right now because it's all going to the paid hosting. I will make one eventually though.

I actually have no pump for it as of now, since my hacksaw needs a new blade before I can cut any more pvc. I''ve just been sticking the hose into the one way valve (on the gun part) and turning it on.

Nice homemade. I dont like how the tank looks though. I would have made mine a different shape or just make a backpack. But the rest of the gun looks really cool. Nice job. cool.gif

Nice work! I'm really glad to see new members going ahead and making homemades. And a CPS one at that! From the shot pics, it looks pretty impressive.

One of these days i will make a homemade that is perfect for a heavy gunner. It would have alot of range high output and still a low number of pumps.

IMO heavy gunning with high range and output with a low number of pumps can still be possible. When doing this though I feel that you'll either need an APH with extra air pumped into it (pump the gun when there's no water in the resivour, adding more air to the air pressure possible) resulting in less pumps required for max power, or a very thick pc CPS homemade, which can operate roughly equally no matter how many times you pump it.
