Thats a nice looking gun ya got there mate. I just checked the vid of the trigger setup. She rips that BV open extremely quick, you've done really well. Keep up the good work. :D

Edit: Hmmmm there is one thing that worries me abit... The schrader valve epoxied in the back. I reckon she might blow out after a while. I'd just play it safe straight away, fork out 5 bucks and get a pack of 2 tubeless tire valves. I know no one likes someone critising their work but I just don't want anything to go wrong...

All the best mate.

Yeah you can at bunnings.... Go to wheel barrow section... Spare tyre $4.50... Cut the valve off...

While your there, see if your closet store sells pressure pipe p/m. Whack a chamber out of pipe, just for longevity sake...


Go the AUSSY PRIDE....

I'd fly the flag to, but i'm sure AFP would be knockin' on my door fairly quickly... It's amazing how many sites link to my posts etc...

You like Dream Theater, my god, I thought I was the only one. I went to see them in Newcastle not too long ago.

But yeah, I'd use a bolt on Valve, that'll save you the thought of it blowing out. Nice job by the way.

nah not a pig mate, stop stressin lol

the wiki tells me that spud guns are not listed on the prohibited weapons list for SA so it may be like WA when it comes to legality. Over ere, it is legal to build and own but th epigs will take it off you if they recieve a complaint in the interest of the public. No charges or nothing. So aslong as nobody complains your all good.

So show your true blu aussie pride mate :D

AUSSIE! AUSSIE! AUSSIE!
