@ Gunfreak, It came with the BBQ Piezo igniter kit i bought, originally, the "spark plug" was encased in a chrome plated steel box, about 3 in. X 1in. X 1 in. , I just cut the box into a folded triangle to make the other electrode :)

Very nice, love the look. How are you fuelling it?

Also, not sure uploading videos of you shooting at those signs is a good idea, aren't you damaging public property?

@Jack, Thx man! I appreciate the comments! And i fuel it with butane :) Also, for the 2 scenes in my vid, where "someone" shoots 'taters at a sign, 1) in those scenes, only the sign is visible, no proof of me being the one shooting, 2) only the spuds were damaged during filming of the video and the second potato was vaporised, no evidence.., so, im pretty sure im safe ;)

Nice finish man. I love the look. Although the sight seems kind of unecessary. :)

Here my latest mod/improvement for my M-55!
Made a Chamber add-on/extension with fan, and the control/PSU for it :)
Note : this is my 1st ever electronic "montage", but it works perfectly and as far as i know, looks dang good for a first try! :P
Anyway, feel free to tell me what you think! :)

The control box/PSU will be fitted to the side or the existing chamber.
Parts for the controll/psu :
1 6cmX11cmX3cm plastic box
2X 9v batteries in series
1X12v Regulator
1X covered 2 way toggle switch, "Arming switch"(turns batt power on)
1X 2 way lighted(red) rocker switch, "On switch" (turns fan on)
1X Green "on" light
Circuit Connected to fan "module" via 2 pin M/F fan PC connectors ;)

Thx Blitz! :) The addon screws in place of the existing 4 in. chamber plug, and the plug screws back into the fan addon :) and today i'll fit the control box to the outside of the existing chamber :) I'll post some pics later today!

Film some night shots and use VLC to take snapshots of the frames where you see the muzzle flash :)
