It looks like a highliter tube.

The pictures are rather small. Think you could get some bigger ones?

The pictures aren't just small, they are very small. Also, some better and more detailed description of what's going on with this little gun is in order.

You tease with a better idea for a piezo ignition then fail to talk about the idea. Also why do you say butane is the only usable fuel here?

well the gun is very picky on its fuel source. iv tryed rubbing alchahol.axe,hairspray and many other sources but for some reason it just wont light. but i have a butane jet and if you inject a little gas from that gun it will happly come to life.


also i have this gun on instructables it has a more in depth on how to make it with better pictures

Nice build. This is definitely one of the most innovative new-guy guns I've seen. :D
