My full automatic PVC AA battery gun (600 RPM)

Built a pneumatic cannon? Then post it here! This section is for completed, finished cannons that you have built. Please include pictures and information.

Your reaction to functional full auto is familiar, kudos for getting it to cycle :)

Needs some refinement for serious power but that doesn't detract from your achievement, great work!

this is amazing. sad to see you got such a bad rap on hackaday - they seem to think it's really dangerous because of pressure and the general idea that something's bound to go wrong. but i think it's great as long as you built it well, which you definitely seem to have done.

however, there was one comment that caught my eye. someone mentioned that a gun of this firing rate and ammunition (marshallows AAs are not) might catch the eye of the ATF, and I'd have to agree. they may want to have a... *hem hem*... few words with you about the legality of such a device.

I looked in to the legality of spud guns a while back and from what i remember, the process of figuring out if my gun was legal included drawing up detailed schematics of my spud gun and submitting them to the ATF for classification. Once classified i can then look though my local laws regarding weapons falling under the same classification as my gun.

It was all a bunch of work that i really didn't want to go though -.-

Besides a FFL type 7 allows one to manufacture weapons :)

Your laughter after that test fire is truly inspiring. That's the sort of feeling that keeps us all interested in this hobby. Excellent work, keep it up!

That white part is... whatever. It pushes the batteries.


Best quote I've ever heard in a spudding video.

Good job again, especially on sticking with it and getting it to cycle correctly and with ammunition.

Good to see you're looking at cheaper ammunition, too. :wink:

How did you make the magazines to hold the AA batteries. I'd like to create a semi-auto version and need to come up with a good magazine design to hold AA batteries. Any suggestions?

use balsa wood for the magazine itself, and use wire from a notebook spine to make the square spring
