Plexiglass combustion chamber

Unread postAuthor: ammosmoke » Thu Sep 28, 2006 9:57 pm

:idea: What if you were to make a plexiglass combustion chamber?
you could heat up the plexiglass and bend it to make it round, and glue it with epoxy, or pvc cement. Or, you could possibly just make it square if you didnt want to bother with bending it. You could see the flame! hehe! :twisted: And hey, maybe it would even work for pneumatic chambers.
What do you guys think?
would it work :?:

You really have a need for seeing the flame when you shoot don't you?

Maybe it could work, just don't try attaching pieces together with PVC cement. Use screws and sealant.

it could work for combustion possibly but i think you would have a hard time perfectly sealing it for a pneumatic. a smallleak in a combustion doesnt make too much of a difference, but in a pneumatic it will emty your chamber in no time.
