Sniper Cannon

<div align="center">SNIPER CANNON

Provided By <a href="http://members.aol.com/sph911/spud/">http://members.aol.com/sph911/spud/</a>

This launcher is incredible. It's design and look alone is intriguing and intimidating enough to give any potato the willies. It operates like other pneumatic launcher, except this is built to simulate a rifle. Air flows through the angled stock, from a chamber underneath the barrel. A breech loader has been added for ease of loading projectiles.

MATERIALS.
Pipe can be bought in 5' sections.
3/4" Pipe
1" Pipe
2" Pipe
3/4" 90 deg. Elbow x3
3/4 " 45 deg. Elbow x6
3/4" Tee x2
3/4" to 1" Male thread
1" to 3/4" Bushing
1" to Female thread
1" to Male thread
2" x 1" Bushing
2" Coupling
2" End cap
Tire Valve
1" Rainbird In-line solenoid sprinkler valve

ASSEMBLY.
The stock assembly is the main part of the gun. I cannot give you accurate measurements, as I built it to fit my large physical profile. I will post better measurements when I find my schematics again. Stoppers (pictured below) are not necessary. Don't worry about them. Simply glue the stock pieces as shown. Feel free to change the position/length of the stock and handle to suit you.
I made the chamber 2' 6". I felt this allowed for ample volume while maintaining a low profile. Great volume is not so necessary in this gun, as you are shooting smaller, lighter projectiles (not large potatoes, although with another barrel you could).

For construction of the breech loading mechanism, please see the <a href="http://members.aol.com/sph911/spud/breech.html">breech loader</a> mod page. Construction of the firing mechanism is seen below, or for more detailed parts, see the <a href="http://members.aol.com/sph911/spud/electronic.html">ESVC-01</a> page. Wire the electronics like so. More plans to come later. Place the momentary switch in its obvious location, you will need extra wire to do so. I just duct taped mine in place (oh yes).

Yes. Oh yes.

I am working on other plans for a more compact version of this gun, or one with rapid-reload capability. Stay tuned for updates, and I am always happy to give advice or to chat.

***PUFF***
Image removed for violating the rules. Can be found in chapter 5, section 3, under several different listings.

why do you take credit for someone elses work
go to http://www.xinventions.com and this is 1 of the featured guns
i think that this is very poor of you to do
obvesly you don't know any thing about makeing cannons so that is why you have to steal someone elses design
next time you post a cannon make sure that it is your own they are as easy as you want to make or then they are as hard as you want them to be
if you haven't built one befor i suggest that you make a simple ball valve one caz they cost about $20aus to make and about 15-20 minutes
after that move onto a modded sprinkler valve gun caz they are stil easy to make but are harder to make then the simple ball valve cannon
after that choose wat ever you want to make caz by now you should have the basics to make wat ever gun you want to
so plz never again post a gun that you didn't make caz you will get caught out then you just look like a complete jack arse

peace out :evil:

wtf!!!!! pvc ballistics is a great site, xintventions suck ass
the man simply took the same idea, made it better and shared it with the world, unlike xinventions where you pay $5 for a plan.

boy do u have a lot of guts to diss one of my book marked sites
