trouble with ignition

Unread postAuthor: gotbass7 » Sat Jun 09, 2007 3:18 pm

i just finished a soda bottle spudgun. or what ever you want to call them. with a big soda bottle as the chamber. only problem is the ignition is hard to push, so you have to push hard. and when you do that, it bends in the soda bottle. I'm using an ignitor from a long nosed lighter. any suggestions on what to do? im planning on shooting it today

pis please, but it sounds like you should take the igniter out of the bottle and hook it up to your spark gap via wires
