Looks like a neat little hybrid. What size of barrel will you be using? I see you dont have your union or your barrel in place yet.

BTW I am not holding that thing! Remote ignition for me.

I wouldn't bother with remote ignition with something with so little surface area and made of thick-walled steel pipe.

I happen to like that gauge. Did you just buy some sort of rubber sleeve to put around it?

i dont want remote ignition cause my chamber can hold more than 2000 psi so no problem. chamber volume is 490 ml so not very much but enoug to break the sound barrier. i will go up to 7x mix that should be alot of power
The gauge is from an air compressor.
ignition will be edited with an extra handle.
Hybrids werent ment to be portable but mine is. all i need is a airpump :P
also my ignition works al the time... spark plugs work really well ive let my friend weld it in the fitting.
also my 20x mix cannon is underconstruction......

Nice launcher, it seems as if steel hybrids have been the latest hit on this forum.

I still think you are insane for planning to take a handheld launcher up to a 7x mix. Even at 4x, remote ignition would be a good idea. But I guess some people are just too stubborn for their own good.

If u think im insane with this tiny launcher...
You should have seen my explosives.. that's insane..
Im insane i know.. But somebody has to be..
I think a cannon that u can't shoot from your own hands is no fun
And i trust my creation its strong enough to held more than 150 BAR
burst pressure 204 bar... i think that is enough to trust it as a handheld 8)

I would use remote at anything above 4x personally.
The only thing that scares me is the test that noname(?) did, where he caused 1/2" sch80 steel to bulge in a spot at 6x.
He probably caused ddt (using 5 feet of half inch pipe). I don't think your chamber (or mine) is big enough to get ddt at 6x, but personally I don't want to chance it when it's in my hands.

Oh and nice gun. I'm digging the pimpin guage. It looks like it's made for off-road use.

The difference is that you are not holding the explosives in your hands when you detonate them. Thus, your comparison is invalid, and this handheld launcher is a far greater risk.

Spanerman, BBQ igniters work fine in hybrid applications.
