And finally, me repairing the cannon:

Eventually, the neoprene sealing face tore, presumably from the air pushing behind it, and pulling it. All in all, it was a lot of fun to shoot :D

These are the only vids I have ever made, so be gentle :lol:

Mate great cannon. You could fix the bending of the washer just by making a simple bumper to stop the piston slamming into the back of the gun every shot

I did actually try that once with a piece of tennis ball, but oddly enough, the bumper would get pushed back into the QEV :shock: and I would have to open the thing up and yank it out with pliers :D You definitely have the right idea though... I've gotta think of something... Taking that thing apart repeatedly kinda sucks :D
