thats a cool gun, it looks like my coaxial, only mine has no ball valve. you did a good job.

i have a cousin who came all the way from merry O'l England and shot my cannons. he is only 6 and he loved everyone of them, he couldnt get enough of it. by the end of the day he could turn a lantern flint as well as i could...

Cool cannon Cannon Creator, Kodus!
I like the damage pic- you have got some grunt there. Oh just seen the vid very nice, I started making my first Pneumatic today, a piston valve co-axel, 300 psi .50 cal.
