firecracker gun

I want to find an airsoft gun that i can power with a firecracker. I want some kind of bolt-action design so i can load the BB into the barrel, the firecracker behind it, and then close the bolt with enough wick sticking out to light it. I was thinking of buying a broken UHC Super 9 from one of my friends and using that, but i dont know if the bolt would stand up to it... oh and i would'nt be using this in games, i just want something to plink with that uses firecrackers.

Do you realize that even a "firecracker" can be dangerous enough in confined space to harm you? Ok, so what happens if it doesnt work? Add more firecrackers? Do you intend to light the kind with a small silvery wick? You do realize the combustion rate of that wick is dangerously fast, fast enough for you not to get your hand away in time.

The amount of "what ifs" that go along with trying to create your firearm, which is what you are trying to create, justify your ignorance and its unfortunate that your parents allow you to have access to the internet.

I only hope that for you and your loved ones sakes that you do not experiment with powders and explosives just to take away afternoon boredom.

Firecrackers are like crack, the first one may not be enough, so you add more hoping to get your result, then you wind up like this, or one of your friends, or an innocent bystander.

1. i'm not 12. 2. why do you think i want something with a closed bolt? So i dont blow my fingers off. yes, it CAN be dangerous. yes, i have thought it through. i know what i am doing. i just need to know if the bolt (which will be CLOSED prior to lighting) can withstand the shockwave. i know 1 firecracker will work. it will propel the bb at approx 360fps.

"Do you intend to light the kind with a small silvery wick? You do realize the combustion rate of that wick is dangerously fast, fast enough for you not to get your hand away in time. "

did you even read the part about me closing the bolt with only a small amount of wick showing? and no, i intend only to use the slower-burning green-wicks.

"What the hell was that? a 1/2 stick of dynamite?

A firecracker couldn’t do that.

Hell, I’ve set firecrackers off while holding them before. Makes your ears ring, but it doesn’t hurt.

Title your posts correctly, or at least check your info before posting. Otherwise, it’s just another scare tactic.

Perhaps, it could have been one of the larger of the m series (like an m-80, only bigger) but it sure as hell wasn’t a firecracker."


that was in the article. i never set anything off in my hand. i'm not dumb. i'm using only firecrackers. 1 at a time. nothing bigger.

You know what I had this long post all typed out why you shouldn't do this. But I think you need a lesson in common sense. Why would you want to use a fire cracker in a airsoft gun when you can do some simple upgrades to said airsoft gun and have it shooting 500fps. You ideal is stupid and should not be attempted by anyone. Matter of fact this thread should be closed and deleted. You need to watch what you post and what you do that might effect the entire community when the public comes down on airsoft.

you are missing the point. but i dont have time to explain everything again to the nimrod you are. i dont care if this thread is deleted. i asked for my own safety if the bolt could withstand the pressure. and seeing as how you are so concerned with safety, i thought maybe you'd tell me instead of saying i'm stupid and feeding me the same BS as the last guy. i dont want a gun that shoots 500fps. like i said i just wanted to try it out. to tell you the truth, i dont care if my account gets deleted, because i dont need to be talking to up-tight idiots like you who think they know everything. oh, and please screw yourself.

First I never said YOU where stupid. I said your ideal was stupid. It was good that you where concerned with your own safety. But, you should of been able to answer that question yourself without ever posting such a thread. Think about it you are trying to use something built to propel a 6mm plastic bb and throwing explosives in it. Do you think it would hold? I never once attacked you. But you did attack me. And I am willing to let that go. All I ask is that you think and use some common sense before you post anything.

Peace

To actually answer your question, No. It will not withstand the explosion of a firecracker. The the gun is already under enough stress as is, why add an explosion?

Are you thinking it will add to the effectiveness, or are you just looking to make the gun "Cool"?

Either way, NickTick and the rest of the guys are right. And plus, you really need to cool it, and tone it down a notch. These guys are smart, know what they're talking about, and don't want people to get hurt. They're annoyed because too many times have people soiled this sport by doing stupid things.

BTW, a firecracker wouldn't really do THAT much to propel the BB. You'd have better success with the normal set up of an Airsoft gun.

i once used a lady finger to propel a candy lipstick container and it went a good 40 ft and its at least 8 times as big as a bb.

I can honestly say using a fire cracker is a very stupid idea.
But to anser your question the bb wouldnt even come out of the barrel.
You would do nothing but waste money, time, and your safty.
Here is a link to a fun safe way to accomplish your same goal
