My Very First Cannon. (Before I Knew About Spudfiles)

Unread postAuthor: wangpushups » Tue Nov 13, 2007 3:38 am

Before anyone posts about me not tapping through the double layer,...I know... I had no idea how to make one obviously, but another thing is that i didnt primer before i glued the joints together. But anyways, besides the mistakes this is a beast. It sounds like a stick of dynamite going off and a ton of recoil. This design would be good for the ones that want to keep it simple but i would recommend going with a 5 or 6 foot barrel. So, here are the specs...

4" X 12" Chamber
2" X 4" Barrel (I recommend 5-6 feet)
Lantern lighter
1" Closed nipple with cap for quicker spraying (Use static guard)
Muzzle loading device
4" Cleanout cap
Shoulder strap
A screw at the bottom of the barrel (To stop the ammo from entering the chamber and to hold one end of the strap)

For a first that looks pretty slick. The "custom spray cap" is a clever too.

That is very nice cannon. It should definitely be upgraded.

Don't like the bell reducer just a personal strength issue for me, other than that nice basic gun

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.
