Latest Cannon

Unread postAuthor: XxtriviumxX » Tue Apr 01, 2008 2:45 am

This is my latest cannon... though ive waited a while before posting it, it is my most reliable cannon so far :D (ive only ever had 3 though), I shoot it between 80-110 psi (aprox)... Its pretty comfortable, though its different having to use the front hand to fire it... but its still good either way :)

I used 25mm PVC for the chamber/stock, a 25mm solenoid valve, and 2" (60cm) of 20mm poly pipe for the barrel... enjoy and thankyou for any comments :D

Nice little cannon you have there, a longer barrel would do wonders :)

Maybe R0B3RT0 could learn from this cannon instead of begging for plans :roll:

I like the fact that you've combined an ergonomic trigger position with minimum pilot volume, if only others would follow your example :D

Oh yeah you may want to epoxy that button on the side of the blowgun, it's been a cause of many mis-fires for me.

It can be depressed very easily and you don't want to shoot out your Dad's car window :)

Neat. I really like how the stock is incorporated as the chamber as how the blow gun minimizes pilot volume. Like JSR said, it was pretty wise of you to deign the blowgun in such a way. Just be careful with that stock though. Pressurized things next to your face is a good recipe for disaster. :wink:
