Propane Bottle

Unread postAuthor: voodooguns » Thu Apr 22, 2010 8:27 pm

Hi I'm not new to this hobby just looking for a better way to mount my propane bottle to a 4"chamber. Tired of sliding it into a pvc pipe. Anyone have any ideas. I would like modular rings or something like that. What do your guys think.

You could always not mount the propane bottle at all like so....

and fuel it with external meter syringes or pods as some like to call them.

Saves a lot of weight.

You can do like starman said, or you can cut wooden braces to clamp the propane bottle to, and also run your meter pipe along, like so:

I like the machined aluminum mounts used by ulitimate spudgun. You could likely have a local machine shop make them for you.
