Why not have a combustible mixture in a piston with a burst disk to the barrel and ram a piston down to initiate the cycle?


The idea of applying the concept of forced diesling to projectile firing is not new and was once a commrcially viable idea in the shape of the Weihrauch Barakuda, however it has long since been superseded in both power and practicality by PCP rifles.

As to the "engine gun", I remember proposing back on spudtech that a set of rotating barrels be hooked up to an air engine in such a manner that the exhaust gas would vent through the barrels to give an air-powered pneumatic gatling, but I guess it's one of JSR's ideas and we just know that it won't work, because....

Hmm should I make fun of a sick man I wonder?


Damn kids*cough*!

Oh I know its been implemented before. Even tribesmen have used the diesel concept to light fires(via "fire piston"). I just proposed using it in a spudgun. Definitely unique. I may try it myself. I've got a few old pressure lift bodies lying around that should do the trick.




Sorry for jacking you thread Spudfarm :)
