Now that's a different look. It does have sort-of a dressed-up but tough snub-nosed look to it. I think it's the all metal construction. You could almost use it as a walking cane.. :wink:

Nooow, how about a little shooting and damage video?

Haven't seen an orange cannon in a long time, nice job.

What pressures have you been taking it up to?

The gun looks great as it is, but it could benefit from a longer barrel. You also could replace the ball valve with a modified sprinkler valve. Maybe a mini-project for you and Frank? :D

What are you asking for?
I really don't understand.
The performance is nothing spectacular and its really quite simple.
this cannon could easily be adapted for over under using 2 elbows.

@frandrede: I dont wanna know how he built... I wanna know it´s performance... damage. I KNOW that the ball valve fail a lot in comparison of Sprinkler, Piston and else. Here I don´t have easy access to Sprinkler or QEV. So I want to compare the performance of the ball valve versus the price of QEV.

*Edit: I found at Youtube something to compare... thanks.

I wonder if JSR's foot-phobia would apply to Karen if she posted pics with her feet in them like so many people do. Maybe he even has a foot fetish if it's a woman's feet.

He obviously did not bother reading the thread. He instead deciding this would be a good place to ask his personal question.
