Bamboo Pump Handle.....Things are getting strange!



This is what happens when a theme gun is getting built......

It is three pieces and delrin cored with a bamboo outer shell.

They'll be getting strange when they start building barrels and bolts out of bamboo.

I like it! I want to see the finished marker now - or at least some concept art!

In consideration of something similar, you could cut two or three bamboo knuckles short and stack them for extra finger grooves. Bamboo would also make a decent stick feed.

If you cut the holes right in a bamboo rain cover, would it whistle?

Lol. Spider, I love the way u think.

A whistling sniper would be awesome!

I bet that would lead to alot of confusion in actual play.

That is sick, can't wait to see the final product.

Is there any chance of me scoring a bamboo pump grip for a KP? I'd love to have one on my rasta kp.

Bamboo is some neat stuff but it has a stupid high silica content (read its pretty much organic sandpaper) which means long term it sucks for things you want to stay smooth & not abrade other parts. A bamboo bolt would wear out an aluminum breach in no time. I still have no earthly clue why idiots make cutting boards out of it as it kills edges.

BigOldSkool, looks cool. I might keep on the lookout for some and see if I can sheath a phantom and tank with it and use hemp twine on the other parts. Make it look like something the Professor cooked up on Gilligan's Island.

There ought to be some sort of clear coat that would help abrasion.

If you went Chinese-bamboo theme, iron or steel rings would be appropriate. They could be delrin or nylon.
