Mad Caddy

<div align="center">MAD CADDY

Provided By FoxxLord - <a href="http://www.geocities.com/cain333_2000/">http://www.geocities.com/cain333_2000/</a>

I decided to give this gun a little more flare than the typical boring white launchers I usually make. It's weight is balanced surprisingly well, the barrel is 2" sleeved PVC and the chamber is 3" pipe completely encased by the three fittings. The cannons inline style lends itself to ease of handling and the blowgun is in a really ideal location for firing.

The golf ball sights are just for added decoration along with the muzzle break holes I did in a spiral pattern of alternating sizes drilled into a 2" coupler. Don't ask why, I was just feeling creative that day I guess. And yes, that blue thing is a water hazard along with sand traps, a putting green, tee-off box . . . . if you haven't figured it out the top of the barrel has a "fairway" painted on it hahaha

The chamber turned out to be too large at first, I couldn't get 100psi out of a 12gram so I ended up cutting it down a couple inches and realized that with the added 3" coupler all three fittings were a perfect fit! That was just a design fluke but I really enjoy the idea of having a double thick chamber and it also really balances out the barrel.

I finally got my 12gram quick change adapter in (no more Schrader), it looks too cool mounted parallel to the chamber. Solid aluminum, very nice! (got it at http://www.paintball-online.com)

Looking down the barrel, you can see the sleeve better, that's the seam on the upper right hand side. No gap! I got lucky the first time I cut it. I used a table saw.

The valve. Nothing special, just a 1" valve with a blowgun. I didn't paint it because I use the same valve for a couple different cannons. I'm cheap!

The newest accessory for the Mad Caddy, the Co2 carrier. It's nothing special, just two strips of elastic I sewed together. Makes it look pretty bad-ass I think.

***UPDATE***
I just got back from the local fairgrounds where I tested the Mad Caddy. If you recall, the last time I tested it the fitting had a pinhole leak and was only firing at about 80psi. The gun only shot about 250 yards. Well today I smashed that distance with the newly tweaked Mad Caddy. After the leak was fixed I squeezed in 90psi per 12gram cartridge. At any rate, I launched 4 or 5 golf balls and had two that stayed on the short grass. Ok, ok, ok, ready for the distance? 346 yards! Not bad for a little guy!

350 yards, really? that is pretty amazing considering how simple it is. I saw a gun just like that one and it could only shoot 300-400 feet. What is the length of the chamber?

its not a combustion thats y theres a blowgun and co2's straped to it, and thats prolly why it shoots farther, phumatics shoot farther then combustions most of the time.

ok, you set off a safety alarm with me with the paintball thing, using these guns in paintball is VERY dangerous, they shoot over 300fps and can severly injure people, anything over 300fps isnt allowed, and it can break goggles, or even break ribs. they're fine to use as an indirect fire weapon like a mortar since gravity will rain down the pb's on people instead of 100psi doing that
