today I took the cannon to 550psi.


and all I have to say...
HOLY crap.
At 100 psi it would barely put holes in 1/2" plywood.
At 550 it went through 4 pieces and a piece of drywall.
The recoil was intense.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about. Looks like that QEV is a pretty tough customer.

Holy crap what did you use to get to 550 psi? got a hpa tank or something?

Were you still using that blowgun to pilot because if so, thats impressive. I have had one leak at over 200.

You can use the Youtube or GVIDEO button to directly embed a video, otherwise it needs to just be a link to the video.

I love the cannon. Is that just a galvanized steel pipe nipple for the chamber? I have a couple of those around and I am curious as to what kind of pressures they can take.
