Well if it's a tight fit it wont roll at all (you use a ram rod to push it back)

If you use loose ammo, which is bad to shoot anyway, you can use wadding or put a wire mesh on the back of the barrel (chicken wire)...

Hey, you can get a bbq ignitor at about any large retail store. It will be with the bbq replacement parts. Hope this helps and good luck.

That thing is cool, gives me ideas.Stay away from airports.
I want to try copper thread on barrel.In long lengths copper is straighter.
I mean 4-6 ft. Have hard time making ' passthru barrel'--breach loader.

this kind of gun you may use only the air of the denatured alcohol, you may save more fuel than others, (only the air fuel of it not the liquid) and gives great performance... i only use denatured since its very cheap, its only half a dollar.. :D :D :D :D :D :D

He said in the second line he uses propane to shoot as its probably one of the best combustion fuels.

Try acetylene crowley. You'll see what I mean. I am way over mini's these days (may take this back when i decide to yet again provide an arsenal for mice :wink: ) Wait till you guys see my smallish acetylene powered hybrid and also my biggg hybrid. You'll crap yourself (<hopfully not)

Piezo electric ignition is not flint based. The igniter you're looking for is electric in nature. Piezo is greek for "you buy it at home depot". Anyway, the self contained lighter unit comes apart. YOu take out the push buttony thing witht he wires on it. That's the bit you need. When you push the button a spring mechanism whacks a crystal that has piezo electric properties (not all do) and it emits a very short, but very strong electric pulse. Arcing the pulse over a gap makes a spark. Spark make fire. Fire go boom. Boom pushes spud. Everybody laugh and reload.
