my first real cannon

Unread postAuthor: isban » Sat Mar 03, 2007 12:30 am

This is the first cannon I made where I actually knew what I was doing. My real first cannon was a piece of junk. Its pretty basic. I mounted a bbq igniter in and airsoft gun handle and gave it some camo spraypaint. There are a few different barrels. I've got a propane gun I hope to post pictures of soon too.

that's pretty nice man, god idea with the handle i like it. you probably should have done a base coat all over first then you would have no whit bits showing but all up it looks pretty kool, nice job.

Sweet. I am glad to see folks making more guns with interchangeable barrels.
About the paint- great job. You can always go over it again and use your first coat as the primer, this way you can hide the rest of the white.

The handle and igniter are both securely epoxied in place. The tape was on there to hold the 2 halves together when I was mounting it in place. I did the paint in about 2 minutes so I didnt really care about a base coat.
