Semi Automatic Golf Ball Cannon

Unread postAuthor: CannonCreations » Fri Sep 02, 2011 9:42 am

This is the first time for me posting on the site, and I would like to show people my Creation, the semi automatic golfball cannon. please let me know things u like, things i should change, and if anyone has any ideason how to make the air reload faster, the golfballs can load faster than i can pull the trigger, but the air takes longer to fill, I am using a very small air compressor , but actually managed to use two compressors for some vids. Please let me know if you have any questions here is a link to the video[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogcdU46SgIY[/youtube]'
If you want to go right to the cannon in the video, go to 3:10

Very good effort, but there are much more efficient ways of achieving semi-auto or full auto fire.

Sprinkler valves are certainly not the ideal valve to be used here. Some photos of your valve setup will make it easier to give specific advice.

I'm guessing it's a simple tee mag, the shot gives enough power to fire a golfball, as sprinkler valves take time to re-close there's still a low flow of air which is enough to dislodge a barrel from the magazine and roll it out of the barrel. Some sort of detent is definitely in order :)

I think this cannon may have some potential, however if you plan on selling it, and or the designs, I highly suggest you go back to the drawing board. Its good, but not that good!

If would have noticed in the video, I have had two designs, with the first design, there was a detent but it didn't work well, and yes balls rolled out, but if you would have watched the entire video you would notice another completely different gun. The new version doesn't not drop any balls after a shot, I agree I do need a different valve, also it doesn't use just a detent, there is another mechanism inside the barrel that keeps the balls from rolling out after each shot

Another point is that the biggest innovation in this cannon is my barrel. I designed it so that it can be attached to any gun with a valve and still work. It is not a simple T mag by any means either. I put a lot of work into the barrel and loading assembly, it can take shots up to 100psi, and will never do a double load or have balls roll out of the barrel. Also I am trying to come up with a valve that will close faster than a sprinkler valve, any suggestions

Again, it would be nice to have a diagram rather than just have us speculate on a few distant video shots.

I don't have any diagrams of the mechanism, but it is the most efficient and reliable semi auto loader I have seen, I don't want to post the actual design until i patent the barrel loading mechanism. I don't need to improve the loading mechanism, but I do need a faster valve, so that it looses less air and will shoot quicker. Also I don't know how a diagram is going to make a difference, unless u just want to know how it works? You said u are speculating, do you mean that you don't think it works like I say it does?
If you go to the video at the top, and go to 3:10 you can see the entire gun, and watch it shoot., if that doesn't prove that it works tell me what will
