Vaping your bore?

Post by 6mmintl » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:28 pm

Anyone tried using an E cig VA ping machine? , modify by making a manifold around air inlet with blow tube, add tube/cartridge for chamber end.

Add organic oil/distilled water and blow a cloud thru bore.

I've got all the parts, machining the manifold skills, and am recovering from sholder surgery to get this project going.

That's a crazy idea.

Might work too. As a paper pather however, I think I'll probably stick with wiping.
I'm not from here, I just live here.

:D Just work it in reverse. Put the mouth piece on the blow tube and blow through the inlet that way you get 100% down the bore :D

Glad I'm a smokeless shooter, can't wait to see this Idea catch on at the BPCR matches.
