Unread postAuthor: grumpy » Wed Sep 26, 2007 2:46 pm

well here is my launcher it is constant air, air source is scuba tanks, i use a two reg system along with safety relief valve and an emergencey shutoff valve. with it's bolt action and constant air i can get a shot off every 4 seconds, as i use it in paintball it chronos 230fps at 50psi and easily hit targets out to 100yrds

My god man!!

Do you have aircrafts where you play? Just wondering because it looks like it can shoot down an airplane.

Anyway, the cannon looks good. Did you model it after The Bergles Cannon? Just wondering because it was the design I was going to incorporate into my next project.

BUT...I see DWV (the tee) and the sprinkler probably wants to be modded.

thespeedycicada,
no that is not my first one, i have been building air cannons or paintball launchers since the mid 90's, this one i built about three years ago.

hubb017,
actualy in the scenario games that play in there are aircraft, helocopters and tanks. a launcher is the only way to destroy them and not get all shot up, also use them to destroy buildings, bunkers and bridges.
yes it was built in the bergles style as will my new one , i realy like the design. you are correct about the tee and that is one of the reasons it is being retired but it has served well for the past 3 years, it will not presurize over 60psi as this is what i have the safety popoff valve set to.

I play (have been for a while). I was making a joke to its size. Do you actually hold it while you shoot it or do you place it on a stand or bi / tripod or in a tank or ...? well you get the point.

Ohhh i c hoe the bergles cannon works, its interesting id have to say but how is the performace because all I see it a ball valve releasing the air into the barrel. maybe you can modify this with a burst disk or a piston valve.

i don't see how you can see the ball valve and not see the sprinkler valve, the ball valve is only used as an emergency shutoff. no i won't be modding it or changing valves as i am quite happy with the way it performs and this cannon is being retired anyway. the new one will be the bergles style also but in a different configuration, it will also use a sprinkler valve triggered by a blowgun.
