My adv comb. NEWER UPDATE: full gun VIDEO

Unread postAuthor: uncomplientspud » Wed Jun 04, 2008 9:40 pm

Linky for those who don't want to scroll down to the bottom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXOEqNJ165c

Well after the success of my first gun, i decided it was best to retire it for safety issues. On this one, it is using the same metering system as my first, and that is it. Chamber is 4220 cc with chamber fan. There are no holes drilled into the chamber wall, only through coupling and chamber. The barrels it will accept are 1.5" and 2" using threads. I put a handle on this one to make holding it easier. I then got the bright idea to put the sparker in the handle. Got it roughed in tonight and will make it formal tomorrow.

Note: I DID hose clamps for my tank however 6" were too small for me to use. I will be getting 7 or 8" clamps tomorrow

Please leave feed on what to improve on (not the tape though since that will be gone once i get the clamps)

the grip looks like its gonna be comfy, good job. btw if u was gonna change anything i would get a cap to go on the end of the handle and drill a hole through it so the ignitor fits inside the handle length wise so its all nice and concealed.

I'm having trouble deciphering the connotation of the post.

Regardless, I think this is a very nice gun. I personally though would like some more pictures from more angles, specifically showing off the propane meter.

i hope to pick up the longer hose clamps tonight, so i will be able to make everything look clean. The end cap idea sounds really good, not sure why i didn't think of that, thanks for that one spuddin. I will clean up the clamps and straighten out the wires today and post some pics for you guys

Whew, that's one long A barrel you've got there...can't help but get some good performance with that thing...and a beefy chamber pumping it too.

Try again to get us some shot vids, and some better close-ups of your handle and trigger mods.

Here you go starman. I used some tape on the handle to help give it a cleaner look by taping over the wires (looks like a grip now as well)

Image

Here is how it is attached to the chamber, allows for refitting if i ever have the need
Image

Top view
Image

little abstract art here with the additional items in the shot. Pressure gauge fits in there snug and is really easy to read when filling
Image

Simply put tape over the front. If i ever have problems with the wires or sparker i can easily get to it.
Image

Scale shot with my hand, fits me really well, i like using it with this grip
Image

With the 2" barrel attached
Image

Still could not find a 7 " clamp at homedepo, gonna have to go to crappy tire this weekend

You can use a couple of smaller hose clamps connected end to end if you can't find one large enough.

I'm usually down on taped up stuff....most of which yours looks fair except the handle front "tape over"...doesn't cut it...see if you can come up with something else for that. Also, the taped on tank is unnecessarily ghetto looking.

I notice your meter valve handles are cattywompus to each other. You will find fuel metering easier to do if they both operate in the same direction.

Still though, not a bad effort. You've got a working advanced combustion under your belt....more than many can say.

No need to double post the same thing. It looks very cluttered and overly complicated, and the barrel looks a couple feet too long. Even then you still need some sort of barrel support.
