supah plus pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: DAltar » Sun Jun 11, 2006 2:03 pm

after 4 months of waiting for my valve it arrived, i had all the peices assembled. except for the valve, of course.

specs, 39x4 inch air chamber 5 foot by 2 inch barrel, spupah plus with pneumatic actuation, tripod/w 45 to 180 degree angle adjustment, schrader valve

mainly i was shooting koosh balls, because of my yard size, but event with koosh balls i was still ably to blow plywood to pieces.

here is a movie of the gun shooting a koosh ball at a soda can the first movie i hit the can at 20 psi the second video i missed the can at 35 psi but is definately worth watching because it shows the speed that the projectile leaves the barrel.

4 months? i bet it felt like it was worth the wait after that first shot. That's a clean solid gun. where'd you find the pressure rated bushing that connects to the supah (what store)?

but by using a valve so expensive i would suggest making the most out of it by giving that nice gun interchangable barrels.

Joel sells Male\Female adapters and you can ask for the bushing....


and if Home-Depot doesn't sell them, check PlumbingSupply.com... expensive $6.75 processing if you order under $20, but they sell about everything

4 months!!! How could you possibly run a business that makes people wait 4 months to get what they ordered and expect them them to buy from you. I was going to order a sprinkler valve off that site but not anymore if it takes that long. What's so hard about putting some stuff in a box and taking it to the UPS drop off? I guess he has to make everything but who knows, it shouldn't take that long...

It is a nice gun you made though. No stains or anything. Interchangeable barrels will definetly be a plus for that gun.

Stop bitching, he didn't order a sprinler valve, he ordered a Supah valve, and even if it took forever, thoose babies are well worth the wait....

Most orders get out in 2 weeks to a month, but some variations of the Supah Valve took a long time....

I freaked out the same way when gort said his order took 6 months, but I later found out that he changed some stuff a few times.

I like this gun a lot, the tripod is sweet and it has no primer stains.... I assume you used clear primer?

Lol I love filling it to 100psi and shooting it, man thoose things are SOOOO loud... at 100 psi they make your ears hurt :D

why is it that everybody thinks that it is impossible to top the supah,and that nobody can build a better valve? Can it shoot through a carhood at 20 psi ? and for the price I could build three of my piston valves. With my valve,at 45 psi, I got thirty six seconds of hangtime. okay sorry,I'm done now,very nice cannon :D
