C19O's Ghetto Mini - Version 2

Unread postAuthor: c19o » Mon Feb 26, 2007 8:12 pm

Yesterday i made my ghetto bottle cap shooter. Well Heres version 2. It has a 3/4" sch40 barrel, pvc glued to a Powerade bottle as the chamber.I still got that empty bic pen to fire it but in version 3 it will be gone, and replaced with onboard propane (maybe), and a Push button ignition.
A propane torch is used to fill the cannon. 20 - 25 seconds for powerful.
10 - 20 seconds for medium. 5 - 10 seconds for a crappy shot. The guns favorite ammo is pine cones. Today I brought this thing up to my friends house to give him my old mini, and this one puts dents in his tin shed. :shock:
I didn't know a mini would be that powerful.

Nice gun, didn't know that 3/4" fit in a poweraid bottle that well. The ignition would be easier if the torch was self igniting, no need to install anything.

Use a peizo from a lighter, BBQ igniters seem to wear out.

i dont think the little pressure that this gun makes will explode the bottle. I plugged up the barrel and fired it, and it stayed pressureized until all the gas leaked away.
