Custom marker for a guy on a budget

OK so one day i was really board, had 2 pop bottles, and paintball on the brain. I decided to make myself a "backup marker" Here is a guide of how to do it. (ill post pics when my camer is charged again)

Stuff you'll need:
2 pop bottles
1 nail
1 eraser
knife/scissors
marker barrel

instructions:
1. get 2 pop bottles (preferably 1 20 oz. Dr. Perrer and 1 20 oz Pib Extra*)

2. cut the Dr. Pepper bottle off right below the lable, and the Pib bottle above the label.

3. Get a nail and pound it all the way through the bottle right below the place where you screw on the cap (called that for lack of a technical term)
This is to keep a ball from rolling down into the bottle

4. place eraser on protruding end of nail (safety reason, it kept poking my finger)

5. slide cut pib bottle over the pepper bottle

6. screw a barrel (probably stock so you dont damage an expensive one) into the drinking end of the Dr. pepper bottle.*

7. tape the porting to increase velocity

8. go out and pwn faces

Proper firing technique:
place a ball down the barrel (musket style)
pull out pib bottle and then smack the bottom...simple as that
sometimes you will need to blow down the barrel to get the ball all the way down the the nail, it works better if you're using paint too small for your barrel

*Use the bottles i suggested because they are shaped so they fit over each other perfectly any other bottles will require "modification" my friend and i made a 1 liter one and had to use fire to get it to work correctly

*Dr. Pepper bottles are spyder threaded... apparently

Ill get some pics from when my friend posted it on paintballforum.com

Edit: woot 1000th thread in custom markers

Spencer's marker:










as you can see 1 liter bottles require custom modification (cutting a hole in the cap and then duct taping it so it wont move)

that would be perfect for scenario games when you need to silently eliminate the general and then dispose of the evidence so you can appear like an unarmed player on their team just doin' whatever.

I wonder if an extra 18" I got for like $5 would work well for that :p

I hate people who say "pop". It's soda! SODA!!!

Anyhoo, that's pretty ingenious. Reminds me of something you'd see on Bill Nye (sp?) the Science Guy lol.

you need to make two of those and shoot napkin balls at each other, now you can play aintball in the house


i want to try to make one with pvc and a handle on the back with a ton of heavy duty rubber bands going from front to back so you pull it back by some sort of handle abd when you let go the rubber bands will pull it forward to make it shoot.

I tried it with rubber bands, i had the whole thing covered, the botteles were about to bend from the force of them. But still when i pulled it back and let go i would only go 10 feet. Hitting it is by far the best way to do it.

how far do the balls travel. is it chrono able

this is a great idea, seeing as i've gone on the field with wristrockets, just a barrel (for blow gunning) a pvc pipe, just a pod, etc.
