So after to many months of debating on what to build I've finally settled for this. The devastating Pak 40.
So here's some specs for the build.
Over under design so I can incorporate the chamber into a recoil mechanism (I'll vent some of the hot gas's to force the gun to recoil)
A 52" x 1" barrel (have to keep it short to keep it transportable)
A 40" x 2" chamber (trying to keep the pressure low for safety)
A full mount
A recoil system (the forced recoil system I mentioned earlier)
A full operational elevation and traverse mechanism
A chicken Plate shield in front
Some sort of sights (not sure how to work them out yet possibly like the m203s leaf sights)
Shooting clumps of 50 .2 gram bbs is some type of container (still to be designed)
Ditched the burst disk idea I had to reduce even more pressure
Some HGDT results
Still trying to reduce the fps a little to prevent injury to other players as of right now its got a muzzle velocity of 699 (approx)
What do you guys think, first major build should be started building it after I work everything out on paper (I can't afford to mess up)
I've seen a couple of these in the flesh around the world, very impressive piece.
I think you'll find that if the chamber is mounted free on a low friction rail it will already recoil a considerable amount without the need for assistance.
crop por favor
With the dimensions you have in mind, I think you're chosen the wrong aesthetic model, there are more adequate German WW2 anti-tank weapons I can think of that suit the scale of your build better:
Sorry about not cropping I can't believe I forgot to.
Is that a pak 36 I was thinking of it, or maybe sleeving the whole thing in a 3" pipe. To give it a better appearance
Actually, The BEST Combination I've EVER gotten with a combustion was a 10 inch by 3 inch chamber, with a 2.5 foot by 3 inch chamber. That should help with power, range, and size.
two chambers? I'm confused
I think that what he meant was a 3 inch diameter, 10 inch long chamber, and a 2.5 foot long, 3 inch diameter barrel.

THIS STATES WHERE YOU LIVE, NOT ME, IT SAYS WHERE YOU LIVE BASED ON YOUR IP ADRESS.
That would make sense. According to HGDT it would reduce my output by half compared to the Barrel and Chamber I had planned.
Edit: Heres a picture of the HGDT results that you can actually see
I'm not sure about the projectile friction and initial position part... Should be close though as i remember someone saying it was 2 psi resistance.
If you blow down the barrel and the projectile moves, then friction is less than 3 psi.
Initial position is basically "how far down the barrel is the projectile when loaded", in most sensical launchers this is zero.
Are you fitting a chamber fan? if not, put the diameter and flow to zero.
I say model it on a 37mm anti tank gun like the Panzerabwehrkanone 36 or this lovely Bofors:
Another advantage of the Pak 36 is that you can "realistically" do this
What about a pak36 with this for a breech without the "charge" at the end of the muzzle. I don't know how easy it would be to make an end attachment like that that's not deadly especially with my limited resources.
This is were I got it from and it seems to work really good for him, And then with the recoil I can make it auto eject.
edit: Fixing the picture I'm not sure why they keep coming out so massive.
