The (2nd) SMALLEST Combustion on this Site

Unread postAuthor: STHORNE » Tue Mar 25, 2008 4:52 pm

Thats right folks, this is the smallest combustion cannon on this website.

it measures in at a whopping 1.875"!!!!

so far I have only gotten 2 successful shots off that went about 10-15", but its good enough to be called, "functional".

I made this gun to beat bigbob12345's 2" long gun. (if you haven't noticed, this has been a 3-day long competition between me and bigbob12345). Sorry, but something is wrong with my youtube account and i dont feel like making a new one so the video will have to wait for now.

So feast your eyes upon the (tiny) greatness that is mine.

lol, Try and beat that bigbob12345.
oh, btw...you gonna change your sig there bigbob12345?
muahahahahahahaha!

The master on minis,
sthorne

lol, i know. I just want to claim the title.

and i don't think bigbob's gonna beat me this time.
he might on size, but it took me close to 200 tries before getting off the first shot. so if you go smaller, chances are you will wear out your igniter before you find a working fuel mix, so i don't think his would be functional.

but he can sure try
ha ha ha

I believe i can too. but considering it's size, give it a little credit. I mean, with a .5" chamber, its not going to go 50 yards. in comparison, 12" is pretty good.

Just to put this in perspective: I can take a 6' long piece of 1/2" CPVC pipe, and load a small wax slug in one end. Using the ~2psi my lungs generate, I can shoot more than 50 yards.

But I know all you want is the title, and it seems you have it for now.

Good point.

And I'm pretty confident I'm going to keep the title, unless bigbob12345 has another trick up his sleeve.

hehe, maybe I should whip something up, does a match ignition count if it can get a projectile out?
