VERY simple combustion cannon

Unread postAuthor: SpudBlaster15 » Sat Aug 04, 2007 12:37 am

This is my spray n' pray combustion gun. Just your standard, BBQ igniter equipped, inline combustion cannon. I use it for messing around, and testing various fuels. The other day I used it to scare a pack of coyotes out of my yard. It is surprisingly powerful, considering it doesn't even have a chamber fan. The average distance obtained is around 150 yards, and it will put a potato through 3/8" plywood from around 20 feet.

The chamber is 3" x 16", and the barrel is 1.5" x 45", giving it a 1.25:1 ratio. The only feature to speak of is pass through breech loading. The silver paint doesn't seem to be too durable, but it should hold up.

The launcher exclusively.
