This is my first propaine fuel toato gun and i think it turned out rather well.

The stock is all custome made by me out of a piece of pine i wanted oak so itd b stronger but w/e. i dont believe anyone has made one like this and if so sry if you think i have coppied and said it was my design.

i put a junky little scope and a "just for looks" silencer on

i fill it with about 15 psi of propaine and it shoots 175-190 yds with just 15 psi so i could get more in if i rly wanted or itd choke out.

i plan of painting the pipe a sandy coler to blend with the stock i made so itd look beter. what more to say? lol

Ingenious meathod to allow the use of a stock on a cannons, although I must question your aesthetic tastes: the silencer is kindof ugly.

I personaly would paint the barrel a shiney black.

As an aside, is that a 3-7x20 scope by BSA? I just bought one of those! Works very well on my .22LR... I don't see why you say it's "junky".

Very nice cannon. Do you have a rifled barrel or does the scope work well with a smoothed bored barrel. I like the silencer and the stock makes it a very unique gun.

its just a smoothed barrel. the silencer is just a 1.5" x 8" long sleeved to fit tightly around the 1" barrel and the entire stock i made all my self so it was a fun and creative prodject i coldove made the stock however i wanted but i liked that design the most lol.

Have you done distance tests? and by the way where did you get the scope?

Oh and how did you make the stock?
