My 2nd Ghetto breech loaded mini with DMG

Unread postAuthor: mtronic » Wed Aug 29, 2007 4:37 am

This is my second breech loaded mini.
The chamber is approx. 500mL in volume
The barrel is 34" long and is 18mm id

I have used a lighter for the on board butane( like Jack Hogg's)
I used an old long nose lighter for the sparker and fuel lines, apart from that everything is just taped into place.

I can shoot potato chunks to about 50 meters and it gives a nice little bang and muzzle flash at night 8)
Let me know if you dig my ghetto mini

Thanks, I'll try to get some pics of the muzzle flash sometime soon and some more damage. I have been shooting a foam box, so I'll post it soon. :twisted:

When it first came out I refused to watch it, I thought Brad Pitt, pfft! If it was "gun club" then maybe, but bare fists? - it's gotta suck!

When I eventually did watch it I was blown away, never have I seen my beliefs and life philosophy so singularly personified in one movie.

In short - watch it! :D
