I made this 2 years ago and carry it everywhere. You never know when I might...... you know. Zombie stuff happens and whatnot, yeah?

It's very thin but that's OK because you can't fire it with a hammer grip anyways. No bulge in pocket, yet ready to fire without warning.

The design is by Joerg Sprave... it's a "Rambini". I believe I am the only person on Earth who made it out of PVC.

And don't be fooled by it's size. It sends hexnuts (if used) at FULL POWER. I like to use smaller ammo with this chap, however. Later on that....

Let's make one:

Use heat gun to open up PVC pipe (1 and half inch in this case) into a flat panel. When heated up, you can use tin snips or scissors to cut PVC, no worries.

Cut out patterns, glue to panel and use a scroll saw to cut out. You know.. the usual.

Like so:

Nice - thats a possible entry for SSOTM Apr
Thanks!

Did you use Gorilla Glue?
I have no idea what that is, I'm afraid.

I used PVC cement. It's not quite a glue... it actually melts the PVC together as it dries. More like chemical welding. If you click on the pics twice, you can read the label. As I understand it, there are different grades of PVC cement.. try and get the heavy-duty kind.

I used it.. and not some epoxy.. because it was cheap (only 20 Rupees). :violin:

I've still got the tin... probably useless by now. Doesn't store well.

Any brand PVC cement will work. Is it better than epoxy? I don't know. Epoxy or even any kind of super-glue would work just fine, I guess.

Apart from the .22 airgun pellets, this is the other ammo I use with this fellow. Steel balls (taken out from used fan bearings) and cut up nails.
