Basic Rifle - Bloody poweful.

Unread postAuthor: bboymatty » Thu Apr 27, 2006 2:00 am

m1 Garand Style Cannon

This is a typical Over-under style cannon using a 25mm barrel and 50mm chamber. instead of the classic stock and hand grip style made famous at pvcballistics i instead incorportated the two, duct taping my blowgun to the handle because i couldnt find anything else strong enough that looked better than the tape.

My old Linear cannon shot well but this thing is crazy, shooting c size batteries well over 250m, i take it regularly to 100psi but i try not to go over.

It has an attached carry strap so i can have it on my back and run, as well as an LED flashlight to illuminate those night bunnies. Ive also glued on shoulder pads and a cheek rest.

Im finding that my blowgun is leaking air rather slowly, i dont know how to fix it ive tried oil but that doesnt seem to work. This sprinkler valve mod was my first attempt and i think it worked well.

on with the pics!

Why didn't you put that valve a little closer to the barrel?

It would have improved performance, indeed, but it would have made a lousy cheek rest.

damn that gun is awsome, really good job.

you should add something at the end of the barrel to complete the assult look, like bore holes in the end, or something.

depending on what i shoot at they either come out flat or totally destroyed. bats against brick walls is sweet and trees too.

im designing some simple darts at the moment too

as for the valve placement, i put it where it is to keep it out the way, the cheek rest would, as FiveSeven said be very uncomfortable with it there.

thanks for the comments guys much appreciated.
