Butane / propane meter is a must or then again you might want to make a pneumatic in that case you will want a piston / barrel sealer.

I've found that propane gives a noticable increase in preformance over butane in my mini, so much so that I didnt really feel that my chamber was going to last if I kept using it.

I think a mini hybrid could be made for $50, and could produce rediculous power if made of steel/aluminum.

you should a mini propane meter! use brake line and jb weld some small ball valves on the ends. the smallest ball valve you can get will be too big so just rig it as well as you can. once you get the right volume (use water to find the volume of your chamber and meter pipe) you can have it perfect size

all very good idea's i like the sound of a hybrid and propane is the way to go because i find thats it's less picky about the fuel air mixture than and ive got a realy good idea how to meter it with out having to use ball valves. Do u think that copper will be good enough to hold the pressure if i use it as the chamber?

if it's rated to 300 psi or more should be fine.

I suggest you use a syringe as a meter, would to be more accurate on a small scale.

[/img] this is wot i was thinking the propane goes into the syringe witch i push to make preasure in the metering tube and then it is relesed into the chamber and bang i am going to use a burst disk to keep the preasure in sorry about the bad diagram but if anyone can work that out lol that is wot i am going to do if no one has any problems with that set up :D

Make an oxy acetylene mini with automatic reloading, laser sight, rifled barrel, and specially molded lead bullets.

I actually have and old pellet gun barrel, some pipe nipples, and acess to oxygen, I'll get back to you on that.
