Be nice, it's my first one, and kind of crude!

Well, this was my project last week, however I had been researching and interested in spud cannons for a long time. After a lot of research, I felt I wanted something that has a lot of power that runs by a source that is cheap: compressed air. So I went and built a full size cannon, with the barrel over top of the compression chamber, and the valve being a sprinkler valve, non-modified (using the electric solenoid.) I used SCH40 Pressure rated 4" and 2" PVC. 4' 4" Compression chamber. 5.5' 2" Barrel. 160psi pressure guage, and a quick connect fitting.

Yes, I know the primer went all over, I don't really car ehow it looks, just as long as it works! :twisted: Some pictures, and a video:

Uh oh.....I actually did not know that. Damn. That could be a bit of a problem, I may have to look into rocking some bushings. That's scary. I appreciate you telling me. However, maybe, I am a very very lucky person, and it's one of the few that are pressure rated.

If you're lucky yeahh :P
I dont take chances. If you can get the bushing, do it. If not, stay low pressure. Otherwise it is a beast of a cannon. :)
