Fred's new stainless beauty

Unread postAuthor: Dumbascii » Thu Aug 30, 2007 7:35 pm

Fred asked me to post this. It is not quite ready to fire yet. Should be capable of scary fuels like acetylene. All smooth bore stainless steel construction. Needs a name! The tripod is elegant but amazingly strong. Clever elevation mech. The rear chamber cap features a unique snap-shut vent for flushing fresh air.

The elevation control reminds me a bit of a scissor jack.

Pretty sweet...

Call her "The Crypt-Monster"

She is a beast, and the tripod is her crypt.

Yhea thats definitely one of the most sophisticated guns I've ever seen.FeLex is right, that thing should easily win an award somewhere. ( And possibly a pair of hand cuffs somewhere else.)Looks scarily realistic. AND expensive. Why don't you call it THE BANKRUPTER?

Sophisticated?
Nice gun, but it doesn't operate any different than a normal gun, but this is alot better looking and can use more exotic fuels.

A lot more sophisticated than gluing hunks of plastic together. I'll betcha she's a breech loader too. And let's face it. as far as looks go, that's gotta be the PURDYEST, most James Bond lookin' thang, I can remember anyone posting in a while. looks can be sophisticated too. VH Man is right though. let's see an OXY/Propane injector.
