Break action launchers

Unread postAuthor: Imortal87 » Mon Dec 08, 2008 11:08 pm

So I figured I share a few of my more recent developments with the burst disk guns that I have been slowly adding to for the past few months. both of the guns are prototype guns and neither of them are ever going to make it to the field but the designs will probably make it into "mass production" for use on other guns.

any way I'm going to stop ranting now and get to the guns. the first is the shotgun that was originally to be fitted with a low pressure hammer valve that never I really got to work properly.

The second gun is an actual grenade launcher design that fits the .75inch shells that David and I make and use with burst disks and tire inflators. Designed to look like a mini blooper it was made originally with spare parts and couplings that I had laying around and I just kept adding things to it, until it got to the state that its in now.

No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size of your funeral will still pretty much depend on the weather.

hey, I'm glad to see you got the pictures up.

Are we going to hang out this up coming weekend or did you decide on going hunting yet?


The locking mech that he has on the grenade launcher is really cool, especially because it doubles as a sight.

Are you also going to upload the mp5 firefly design?

EDIT: NVM I went on your photobucket account and I seen the pictures.. cant wait till you upload them.

They are a little rough but for prototypes, pretty nifty work there. I like your fit-up work on the break of the shotgun the best... :wink:

Post some operational pics when you get the opportunity. DavidV will be proud of you.... 8)

That's cool. You guys are pushing the burst disk tech in the pnuematic world and I think that's great. I've got some things up my sleeve in combustions I'm working on. I just think concept so too well performing and easy to implement to be marginalized on the sidelines.
