My improved (kinda) miniature combustion

Unread postAuthor: Spedy » Fri Apr 18, 2008 8:20 pm

Basically it's a bunch of PVC fitting epoxied together for a handle, and a film can for the chamber/projectile. So far I haven;t found anything that works for the barrel, so most of the time I just use it to send film cans flying. Gotta try tic-tacs sometime..

Here it is, in all it's smeared glory. I didn;t know epoxy could be soo slippery...

I hope the picture isn;t too large...


EDIT: UGH! the stupid host deleted my pictures. Gotta find a new one..

No in fact it's rather small, and seems to contain only a small red cross.

But it sounds interesting.

Yah I've heard alot about binaca working really well. Going to have to look for it some time..

I am aware of the c/b issue of the pen barrel. I've seen minis with much worse, like a 300ml medicine bottle and a pen tube...

Oh well, it's fun to use and makes a nice bang. My next mini is pretty much done, I just gotta let the epoxy finish setting before a test-fire.

BTW for a film can, 2-3 pen tubes is a good CB ratio.

how would you connect the 3 pen tubes together so that ammo doesn;t clog at the joints? Sorry, I tend to be un-imaginative when there's the possibility of the knowledge being elsewhere lol.

Edit: Cool sig lol
