  • Materials/Tools
  • 1=Bottle; 2=Heat-shrink tubing; 3=Adhesive tape; 4=Tube; 5=Long tube or casing from a felt-tip pen (the size of Airsoft's ball); 6=Butane lighter; 7=Saw; 8=Rubber or plastic hose; 9=Compressed-air blowgun; 10=Hot-glue gun.
  • 11=Drill (not shown).

  • First, drill a hole in the cap of the bottle.
  • Glue the large tube to the cap.
  • When the glue has set, drill a hole in the end of the large tube and another hole in its side. Cut the smaller tube (to create the gun's barrel) to a length of 2 inches.
  • Glue the small tube to the hole in the end of the large tube.

  • Flare the end of the rubber hose with a suitable tool (pen, stick, china marker, felt-tip pen, etc.).
  • Cut the nozzle of the blowgun to 1 inch long.
  • Fit the hose over the nozzle.

Step #4:

Glue the hose to the nozzle. When the glue has set, cut a piece of heat-shrink tubing 0.7 inches long and place it over the joint.

Wrap the end of the blowgun with adhesive tape to make the connection airtight. Place the end of the rubber hose into the hole in the side of the tube and wrap that joint with adhesive tape also.

  • More decoration.
  • Materials/tools
  • 1=Rain gutter; 2=Paint (whatever color you prefer!).
  • Cut a length of the rain gutter, and in the bottom of it draw a slot large enough to fit over the top of the blowgun.

Now, drill a large hole and finish the slot with a file.

Step #10:

  • The last step is to glue the bottlecap-and-tube assembly on top of the blowgun.
  • The barrel must be aligned with the blowgun, or your new airsoft gun will have very poor accuracy.
