Gort's Streamlined Simple Combustion

Unread postAuthor: sgort87 » Sat Jun 24, 2006 8:13 am

I decided to try something that nobody else seems to take advantage of with 4" pipe. I'll let the pictures do the work.

Thanks Aturner and Plow (Spudtech) for the handle design inspiration.

Also, the only reason the one spot is painted black on the barrel is because I snagged it from my Proton Pack barrel pile.

Nice, I bet you made that with your eyes closed. Bigger pics would have been nice.

Yeah, making this was a real breeze. It took me maybe an hour, but that's counting the time spent at the hardware store and hand-cutting the 4" pipe to be straight and so on.

(Click on the pictures. :wink: )

Nice, as always Gort. Im actually planning on using the fact that the ID of 4" sch 40 and the OD of 3" fittings on a cannon now that you have exploited such a convenence. Although you should of "counter-sunk" for the lack of a better word the cleanout adapter so when screwed in it would be flush with the outer pipe. Nice cannon!

I have trouble using Ether (for the dumb: starter fluid (not calling you dumb Gort))

I try fir about 1 second and it doesn't work at all (just catches my 340 ci. chamber on fire, instead of combustion, I take off the cleanout and there's a bondfire inside :D )


I like that handle a lot, it reminds me of my 4" ABS cannon for some reason...

Great gun, like Pimpman said, like always :arrow: :roll:
