double post, but second vid is up! This is 3-4 mm thick metal and two 1 mm sheet metal and 2X10.

I know nothing explodes like many test you see, but really this gun is all about penetrating power. To get through one piece of wood this thick is a helluva task. To go through three? Well I personally found it to be a challenge.

That is some amazing penetration for a Combustion. Not to mention EXTREMELY quiet. Its the kind of thing I expect from a High-pressure Pneumatic (minus the noise)

It seems we have the combonation of the Beauty AND the Beast. Great job, Once again.

Good, the videos made it. Honestly I was little concerned for the health of your garage door there for a bit... :wink: Really impressive performance....at least as good as a big nail gun it looks like...also that barrel looks much longer than I thought it was.

I'm glad to hear many of you are reconsidering the power if combustion! Nothing is more portable and if done right will rival and even surpass many other designs. :)

Consider this, this gun is tiny compared to most combustion guns. 3" by 14" most are closer to 4" by 24".

Anyway, Rad, that thing is pretty bada$$. I can't wait to get my blowgun barrel so I can see what the Bastard can do.

Good Lord, I didn't even pay close attention to the size until you mentioned that. That is insane man. My chamber on my advanced combustion is almost 3 feet in overall length at 4" dia. My next cannon will trickle your cannon's essence. I love the portability of it.

Overall, great work here Radiation!

Lol your chamber is 450 cu.in. Mine is a little less than 100 cu in. :wink:

I think that's why people think it might be so awkward to hold, it's much smaller than they think it is. I'll have to post some comparison pics or something.

Yea Radiation! Please do! I am just blown away by how complex that puppy is for it's size. I guess the best things in life come in small packages. :wink:

Look forward to seeing some new pics!
