Softball barrel

Unread postAuthor: xpitxbullx » Tue May 27, 2008 12:17 am

I have interchangable barrels for my combustion gun. A softball is 3.82" in diameter so I built a sweet softball barrel. They launch pretty hard and far. I think if I paint the inside I can get it to be a tight fit in a 4" barrel.

This barrel attachment has been my favorite so far.

What, no pictures? Video's? Come on man. I'd like to see a softball going through a 3/4" piece of plywood, taking out a manikin, some kinda cool destruction!

YOU BRING THIS UP WITH NO PICS OR VIDS!!!!

I demand carnage evidence... :lol:

Painting the inside of the barrel sounds like a bit of a waste of time if ask me... tissue wadding should do the trick... :D

I can use a paper towel or cut a piece of a t-shirt for "reuse-ability" but its just easier if the barrel is a perfect fit with the paint. I'll try to post some pictures or a video. I think I have an old computer led monitor that needs to be the test subject for you carnage junkies. :twisted:

Oh, I'm also working on an egg sabot that will have a cloth that is fastened to the sabot and cradles the egg holding it in an upright position. Should launch a raw egg up the barrel and protect it from the sides of the barrel.

I wish my barrel had an ID like the pipe you have pictured, DYI. What type of setup are you using that barrel with?

It isn't in use as a barrel yet, and when it is, I won't be able to discuss it here anyway. You can PM me to find out more if you want to.
