Making your own paintball marker is much cooler since you can personalize it any way you want. You can choose the color, the style, the size, everything! You can even start a collection of personalized paintball markers. In this article you’ll find a step-by-step explanation on how to build your own paintball markers and the list of all the materials you’ll need.
Materials You'll Need:
- Plastic Bottle
- PVC Valve
- Half-Inch PVC tube
- Teflon Tape
- Hot glue Gun
- Getting Started. First you need to determine the size of your indoor paintball marker. You can use a 500ml or a 2L bottle, just remember that the bigger the bottle the harder the level of difficultness. This explanation is for working with a 500ml – 1L bottle. Grab the bottle and make a half-inch hole on the bottom of it with the scissors. Be careful when doing this since you can get cut. The hole has to fit perfectly the pump.
- Sealing the pump. One you have the hole connect the pump to the bottle and assure it with Teflon tape. Then cover the bottom of the bottle with hot glue.
- The PVC tube. In order to make the indoor paintball marker you’ll have to connect a PVC tube in the mouth of the bottle. The tough part of this step is that you have to seal the PVC tube with the bottle. In order to seal it you have to put various sticks into the PVC tube and then expose it to heat. The tube will start bending over and in one point a small protuberance will come up in the middle. Now put it into the mouth of the bottle again and you’ll see how it is completely sealed. Now assure the connection with tape.
- Putting the Valve. Now connect the PVC valve into the PVC tube and put some tape around it. That’s it; your indoor paintball marker’s structure is done. The last thing to do with your paintball marker is to personalize it by painting it or drawing different designs. This is up to you and how you want your paintball marker to look like. To use it just fill the pump with paint, open the PVC valve start shooting at your friends!
