Wanted to do this project today...
Already have an M10 converted to .30 and one converted to .35. Had this one set up as a .25, but I decided to turn it into an arrow gun.

No time for real testing, but hitting 330fps with the aluminum arrows. I made another adapter and a 5/8 brake line tube barrel for my other arrows. Will test them later. They are carbon so guessing a bit more speed. Also for the initial testing, I only filled the gun to 2000psi.

2nd shot blew the insert out the arrow so will need to glue those in really well to keep them holding.

Thank you, sir.  I'm not entirely sure what I'll use it for, but was fun to tinker with all the same.  I do need to come up with a better way to secure the inserts on the arrows or they blow off.  Havent tested accuracy, but cant imagine that it would be bad. 

Next, need to do something with that stock... maybe it's due for a paint job.  I'm not sure just yet.

V2 of my arrow shooter.  Added a small shroud to it.  Helps give the arrows a little spiral and keeps them centered and in place, keeps blowback off me... and looks good, I think!

Looks great.Cant wait to try it.... I like the 2nd go round with the tube to stabilize arrow and keep blowback off of you.

How about a video of that gun in operation. My curiosity is really tingling.  😀

I'll give it a go.  I'm certainly not a videographer and my face was made for Internet, not video..haha

Hey Rob,

Just wondering how long an inner tube do you have the arrow rides over, and how tight a fit do you get.

I'd love to see some accuracy data.

Later

Evan from NC

The inner 'barrel' goes flush with the air reservoir, so roughly 20.5 inches.   It's a relatively snug fit, but not so snug that the arrows would stay on if aiming straight down.  The shroud now keeps the arrows from falling off.

Havent had a chance to test accuracy, but if it's anything like my converted Condor to an arrow gun... it is very accurate.

I remember not to long ago under Steve's old board air bows were a forbidden topic

I'm still running a tadagger set up on a Talon frame with a big bore English valve and heavy hammer/spring

incredible power.  All modded up with Adams bits on a far larger tank

you may have to cross pin those inserts, I have to

Tagdaggers kit is what I have on a Condor as well...   I say Condor, but it's actually a collaboration of junk parts from me... still... great kit.   Was thinking of pinning the inserts.  Will see how they hold up in further testing.
