SFCL-101

Unread postAuthor: frocksie » Sun Apr 08, 2007 6:21 pm

Just built this thing on Wednesday, and put the finishing touches on today.
It wasn't built for performance, but rather for looks, as there aren't many rocket launcher spud guns out there.

It is 3in pipe with a 14 in chamber and a 34in barrel.

It is painted tan and has mahogany stain ha

I really like the flange on the end... it gives it that Rocket launcher touch........

I haven't fired this thing yet, so I am not sure about the C:B ratio, but it will probably be fine.

That thing looks awsome, and yeah, the flange adds a lot.
What are you planning on using as ammo?

Tin cans with some masking tape are a good fit and 20oz. soda cans with some masking tape also work well.

This gun looks really cool, but with a C:B ratio of 0.4:1, I don't think the performance will be anything to write home about.

Can you give any other specs? its combustion right or am i just stupid.
If it's a combustion whats the ignition. Does it have a chamber fan, fuel, ect.

All together i like it alot for its looks.

SPECS:
Combustion cannon
Barbecue Ignitor
20mm comp. fan
static guard as a fuel

Even though the ratio is .4 to 1, it still has a wicked kick. Actually, the rear grip/stock cracked today due to the kick.

I haven't done a distance shot yet, but shooting a water bottle at some wood destroyed the bottle and cracked the wood. Overall, the performance is great with a computer fan, but without it, the fueling is almost impossible because the chanber is split in half by the threaded fittings.

Unfortunately, due to cracking, I have had to replace both the stock and fore grip.

It looks awsome. That sounds pretty impressive that it cracked wood with a water bottle. I like the design alot. Looks jsut like a rocket launcher.

very nicE! i think an all black or moss green paint job would be awsome!! it might be too late now but if you sleaved smaller pvc inside the "barrel" you could keep the look but improve the C:B ratio with a smaller diamiter barrel

Yes, "rocket launchers" are pretty neat. Good job on those handles as well, even if they did break.

Now... I have to ask this... I'm sorry. Are you going to use this to whack Lenny, frocksie? :wink:
