SH*T SON

That is a sexy gun, and yes, I do say that to just about every single one I comment on, but this one deserves it especially. Very good call on the shoulder mount, the last one did look a little unfitted to any form of hold.

Good work m8!

:?: I'm confused. It shoots tennis balls. 1.25 chamber to barrel.. Is that a diameter? If so, I thought this was a breech loader. :?:

6" chamber, 2.5" barrel...thus the model 625.

Jagerbond, this thing is just about at the limit of practicality for human hand holding. Still, it's a really nice setup with the shoulder mount.

That totally depends on how balanced the weight is. From the looks of things, it seems very balanced. I'll bet it is a blast to shoot.

Thanks. I didn't know. Thanks for the edit to add the word ratio.

That thing is friggin awesome! I love the hi tech look of the whole set up. Videos are desired in a way that can't be overstated. Tennis ball caliber for a beast that size...safe to say it belongs in the "ultimate" category :shock: :shock:

I agree, it weighs about 45lbs. and could use a tad more weight on the front for a perfect balance. The rear cap and female adapter accounts for 7lbs! I guess its necessary, the math says with a peak of 60psi that the cap is seeing nearly 1700lbs force pushing on it.

With that said, I don't seem to notice any weight while bearing down on the target ready to pull the trigger.

I am curious about your thoughts as to the real advantages of a tennis ball shooter this large. Unless you're going for purely close-in damage shots (which could be impressive), you aren't going to realize significantly more distance than you would with a more "standard" sized chamber/barrel combination....just because of the drag and low-mass-for-its-size tennis ball ammo.

While it's nominally a tennis ball cannon, I have no doubt that jager's customers will be shooting anything that fits in the barrel out of it ;)

For me, the real advantage is the giant Costco potatoes. They are $12 for 20lbs (about 25 spuds) and they are so big that the 520 was trimming a lot off. This 625 wastes very little when loading and still maintains a good seal. With the 1 pounders I found myself nearly sitting down on the first shot.

Tennis balls can be reusable depending on what it hits. Today we we're punching holes through 1/2 ply at 15 yards with them, and exit damage was impressive. Hitting hard stuff left yellow circles and we could only re-use the balls that didn't break only a few times before failing. Straight up shots felt like eternity before returning to earth, we'll time some tomorrow. We quickly put together a syringe set-up for the garden hose -- filled the tennis balls with water and found performance was pretty awesome. For this gun water filled tennis balls is a nice blend of speed and energy.

With that said, this is for a customer but I'll probably keep the prototype.

Best,
Mike
