this is my combustion launcher, i was inspired by spuddins tutorial on how to make a home made golf ball barrel http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/homemade-gb-barrel-t10549.html, well spudblaster and i made me a golf ball barrel and then made a gun, i did some tests and it got 14 seconds of hang time and went 200-250 yards across a lake. :) enjoy.

This gun is amazing for being a spray and pray. We launched a golf ball straight up into the air, and it came down in the woods 200 yards across the lake from us. When firing at a 30 - 40 degree angle, the balls disappear without a trace.

Dude, nice gun! Very clean sleaving job. That's some wicked range you described there. How loud is it?
However, I know using DWV isn't safe on pneumatics, right? So is it okay on combustions? I noticed you have a bell reducer, and it looks like you might have a DWV female adapter and plug on the chamber, and a DWV breech loading system. Also, is the thing made out of ABS?
Overall, nice work!

yes the gun is all abs and im not worried about the dwv because apparently abs is better with shock than pvc, and its acctually very loud when the fuel mixture is right.

I have found that it is nearly impossible to blow up a properly cemented ABS DWV cannon using aerosol fuels. Due to the inaccurate fueling, the chamber pressure is not likely to exceed 40 - 50psi.

Finally, someone else with a female threaded barrel! They're so much more practical!
Why'd you use the yellow cement? Can't you guys get the black stuff?

Sucks for you guys.
I'd probably rather be able to get copper for non-ridiculous prices than get black cement at all though....

How much is your copper? In our town, it is $1.59/ft for 1/2" Type L, and $2.09/ft for 3/4" Type L.

The only type of copper that I can even get in sizes over 1" is the DWV variety, and it's only rated for about 200 psi.
