Procrastinate now, don't wait!

Great looking gun, it looks like it will have quite a bit of power, even though the pilot volume is a little on the large side.

I just tested it to make sure it sealed and it did perfectly.
Ive only pressureized it up to 40psi and it makes a pretty load noise.
No damage shots as I dont have a barrel yet Ill get one tomorrow.
This is my second favorite gun yet(first being the KAMG) it is just really easy to use and nice to hold and should get pretty good power considering the noise and recoil it makes when fired.

Sorry for the double post but I was bored today and it was relitivly warm today so I decided to get out this can and see how many cans it could get through.
there is currently a leak in the treaded fitting that comes out of the piston valve that reduces it down to 3/4in.
This made it so I wasnt able to shoot over 80psi because it would leak faster than I pumped.
Well here it is a shot at 80psi with a standard marble in my 10ft 1/2in sdr21 barrel that is normally used for the The KAMG at 8 cans.

The gun right before firing

7 of the 8 cans after firing

the last can marble almost made it through

I was surprised at how many it went through at only 80psi makes me wonder how many it will go through at 120-130psi :twisted:

that is simply incredible. I never imagened it going through so much... have to make a 1/2" barrel for my 1.5" sprinkler gun...
One thing to be careful of to get the most out of your shots is that your barrel is straight. In that picture it seems to be curving quite a bit. Just lay it flat on the ground or prop the entire thing up on a bunch of 2x4s

I just fixed the leak I was talking about.
I would fire it again at 130 or 140psi but Im out of cans :cry:
Maybe Ill go buy a couple 6 packs of root beer and chug em down.
And I put the thing on the end to raise it so it would shoot the middle of the can instead of the bottom. It is 1/2in thinwall and is already bent permanantly in that picture it is much less bent than it normaly is.

shoot through some plywood while you wait, or better yet, stick a can of hairspray/deodorant ect... in a camp fire or pile of burning wood of some sort, and then shoot that. Now that is what i call fun. Dont forget to stand back...

One of the reasons I got a job was because I was starting to feel malnourished :lol:

And bigbob, the PG has some mad BBS in that pic. As launchers get more and more powerful, targets become increasingly hard to come by.
