sniper cannon

Unread postAuthor: battlemonkey » Sun Sep 30, 2007 2:38 pm

My first cannon that I have posted.
Has interchangeable barrels for shooting paintballs or corks and even water (great fun, shot friend against wall and left an outline of him).
However my valve has stopped sealing so there aren't any damage pics.
need to get a new one from bunnings but they cost around 50$ so am a bit reluctant.

Fixed double post - couldn't fix your images though, you posted the thumbnails, not the whole images.

Try uploading them to http://www.imageshack.us - that gives you clear instructions on how to post the images on a forum.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

A DVD rewinder? WTF?
The gun sounds good, but the pictures aren't very clear. What type of valve are you using?

Nice, I recommend modding the valve for better performance and more comfort while firing.

hmm. what happened to all those people that would complain when someone called a smooth bore gun a rifle, and a gun that can hit stuff with in an inch at 300 meters, wow that is a little off topic :x ... Nice cannon, you should get a new valve, then post damage pics :lol: how long is the barrel on that thing?

That last post seemed slightly incoherent to me...

Anyway, some specs, damage pictures/videos, etc., would be greatly appreciated.

And the DVD rewinder was great :lol:

A while back, when ever someone posted a paintball gun they called it a rifle, and some members had a problem with this because technically it wasn't a rifle, then it became a joke sort of.

Now, can we all get back on topic it doesn't matter.

As i said my soileniod is current broken and am in the proccess of getting a new one.
GGTD says about 420fps but that may be a bit optimistic.
i Have taken it up to 160 psi and with that sent a ball bearing a few hundred meters (not sure how far as never found it).
Heres a pic of the full gun.
