Hola, everyone. I was tired of shooting paint in my backyard, making my trees look terrible, and my dogs getting sick. I decided it was time to switch to reballs. My main concern with reballs was how much those things like to bounce around after they are fired, so the intention of my build was to have a system that entraps the reball as soon as it is fired.
1/ 4" PVC 45degree wye connection
1 /4" PVC 45 degree elbow connection
1/ 3"-4" PVC flange connection
2/ 24"(2')x4" PVC pipe
1/ 5"x4" PVC pipe~
1/ 1gal. paint can
1/ 4"x4" lexan sheet
1/ 8"x6" vinyl shower pan lining~ (eyeballed this part)
Here is a reference shot of the entire set-up.
collection bucket and drop sheet.
Slit for drop sheet. Used a hack saw to make a slit for the drop sheet. Lined up using the 45 degree connection.
Just trimmed to fit and cut ribbons into it.
Lexan insert w/ chrono fit in. Used a dremel to cut out and fit into wye connection.
Down the rabbit hole.
nekkid w/o collection bucket.
It works! The only thing I can gripe about is the fact the angle is very steep and starves the loader when you shoot rapidly. This can be corrected by shooting against the tube wall and decrease the angle. Overall it turned out very well. All of the supplies can be found at Home Depot (sans chronograph of course), and one can be built for probably around $40-$50 (Most of that was in PVC)
