Just finished a small combustion gun that turned out nice

Unread postAuthor: Technician » Sun Jan 15, 2006 12:21 pm

Just finished up a smaller launcher that still packs a good punch. It is roughly a 440ml schedule 40 PVC combustion chamber, has metered & regulated propane injection utilizing a waist suspended propane bottle connected via an umbilical hose, uses a magnetic LP bottle holder, 55" x 3/4" inch breech loaded barrel with a cam-lock coupler on the barrel for quick reloads, Swiss Diopter front sight, Pacific grip w/contoured foam, printed circuit board spark strip ignition powered by a 1.5 volt electronic grill igniter, modified plug-in trigger/grip w/contoured foam, 40mm brushless fan for better air/propane mix & quicker venting, fan powered by 13.5 volt power pack regulated down to 12 volts for extended operation, and last but not least is a plug in remote firing trigger.

Thanks, but credit for the basic design goes to Latke. We decided to take the basics a few steps further with the Cam-Lock, on-board electronics including spark strip and batteries to make the unit more portable and self contained. I also liked the idea of the waist strap for the bottle and a few other little goodies. I started fiddling with it shortly after Christmas.

034936, make anymore posts like that and you're gonna be in some trouble. If you're gonna post, make it not spammy bullshit.


Nice gun! I thought it looked similar to latke's, lol.

P.S. Not being fussy here, just following what the rules say.
