Smallest Over Under Combustion Cannon on the site!

Unread postAuthor: rcman50166 » Mon Mar 24, 2008 7:09 pm

MINI SARGE

Yes, it's all the rage; small combustions! In spite of bigbob's gun and sthorne's gun, I have built my own.

It is currently the smallest over-under combustion cannon on the site. It is only 3.5 in long with a 6mm diameter chamber and a 2mm diameter barrel. And yet another challenge: there is no glue in the gun. I can post a video if you don't believe it works, but I think it's a waste of time.

Well thanks. I've been playing around and it turns out the trigger hurts to push. So much force is required in such a small space that I can't push it without hurting my finger. Anyone have a quick fix for this?

Possibly glue something with a bigger surface area on it?

I've been using body spray. Butane, at this size, is very hard to work with. Alcohol based fuels are the best.

I don't see why everyone wants to make the smallest cannon on the site, i'd go for the biggest :D

You could take away the ruler and say it had a 4" diameter chamber with a 2" barrel and a huge drawing pin spark gap :lol:

They want to make the smallest so that they can have some sort of record. For me, "Most powerful pneumatic on Spudfiles" will have to suffice for now. I've probably got "Worst reload time" as well... :roll:

Pfft, that's like telling the everyone you have the worlds smallest penis just so you can get in the record books... :D

And when you get beaten by some other poor soul, you grab the cigar cutter... :roll:

Wow this got tangental... and funny :lol: Well my mini was built just to snatch a record. If I had the money I would definately go for most powerful. What is the most powerful combustion on the site? Maybe I can beat that. And for the penis thing, I find Carlman's statement very sketchy... :shock:
