Shoulder Launched Cannon

Unread postAuthor: SatansEvilTwin » Tue Jul 22, 2008 10:51 am

Ok, well im gonna try again to add some pics

This cannon uses a grip cut from an airsoft uzi. I drilled a hole through it and stuck in a grill ignitor in the position a normal trigger would be. It uses a red dot scope on a weaver rail I pillaged from another airsoft gun.

Fuel is rubbing alcohol, sprayed with an atomizer. Ammo is either potato missiles or paintballs stuck between 2 crumpled up grocery bags and smooshed together

A 15 paintball spread @ 10 yards. 5 paintballs hit within 2 feet, and the rest went into the woods around the target

Nice gun. Next time when you try to attach things, try using epoxy, it makes for an overall cleaner looking gun. Nice first.

Surely you meant shoulder fired cannon, unless you actually launch the whole thing at the target ;p

Nice.

You should sabot the paintballs. What size is the barrel? 2"?

Aw :(

I was looking forward to seeing a shoulder launched cannon...


Still, a black paintball shotgun with a sight on it is always worth a look over :)
