Zooka

<div align="center">ZOOKA

Provided By Boogieman - <a href="http://www.advancedspuds.com">www.advancedspuds.com</a>

Zooka is a small launcher designed to shoot golf balls. It is tiny, but still can shoot a golf ball quite a ways. The whole gun is only about 3 feet long. It includes a 1" pneumatically actuated sprinkler valve, with trigger-like actuation. The barrel includes a simulated muzzle break. I made this launcher mainly from surplus parts from previous projects. The only part I had to purchase was a 1" male adapter.

A basic rundown on the launcher parts is as follows, from muzzle to back: 1.5" coupler, 1.5" sdr21 barrel about 2' long,1.5" female adapter, 1.5" to 1" threaded bushing, 1" close sch80 nipple, 1" Orbit Watermaster sprinkler valve, 1" male adapter, short stub or 1" sch40 pipe, 2" to 1" bushing, 3" to 2" bell reducer, short section of 3" sch40, 3" sch40 cap. The chamber has a Schrader valve for filling.

I painted the launcher with olive drab ultra flat camouflage paint.

As long as the barrel is under 3 feet, it'll be fine. SDR 21 isnt that brittle.

A quick running of the <a href="http://www.spudfiles.com/spud_wiki/index.php/GGDT">GGDT</a> indicates a muzzle velocity of about 240 feet/sec at 100 psi.
