MoonShine Cannon

Unread postAuthor: SkunkWerX » Wed Feb 08, 2006 7:41 pm

This here Cannon is the "MoonShine" Cannon.
It is named this, becuase it's owner's nickname is MoonShine, a friend and fellow PB player who needed a launcher.

1" Irritrol valve
3" PVC Air Chamber
2" Bore
100psi Pop Safety valve
120psi gauge

Intended Ammo: Pocket Vortex Nerf round

Featuring the SkunkWerX "On Board Air System" consisting of a 7oz. Co2 bottle, screw on/off UFA (Universal fill adapter) for filling to proper pressure.
The "On Board" system allows portability and many follow-up-shots,
both desireable features during a paintball game, while hunting Tanks and attacking hardened targets such as Forts and Villages.

The SkunkWerX portable launchers are built with power to Weight ratio in mind.
They have to be short enough, and compact enough, to haul onto the Paintball field without a pack mule, llama, or young Hindu boy to carry it for you.
They have to be self-supportive, hence the "On Board" Air system.

It's not the most powerful cannon on the planet, but it gets the job done.
80psi gives you about 225FPS using a Pocket Vortex nerf.

You will notice an after-thought by the SkunkWerX design team. The 2" Tee chamber.
The TEE chamber wouldn't add any additional length, but would add a little more Static air charge, and more importantly, add it right at the Valve inlet giving a little more initial "Pop" at the beginning of the exhaust cycle.

This launcher now belongs to "MoonShine".

The first person to respond will earn 5 SkunkWerX Bux.

Sorry, but there is only one pic of this one.

I love the camo on your guns, it looks so preofessional. What PSI do you take it up to? The reason i ask is because those tees and elbow look DWV.

All Schedule 40 nsf-pw

80psi Max, typically about 65psi.

Thanks on the paintjob, this one wasn't very good, it was a quickie to have it ready for a game.
