That is a great gun for using parts that are sitting around! Check the pressure ratings on all of your parts. If they're anything near that of copper, you could take the gun to obscene pressures! I hope to see more cannons from you if that's only your first one!

origin unknown wrote:That gun makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... Is that a butterfly valve or a ball valve? Sometimes I just can't tell the difference between the two types of valves from the outside. Beautiful gun! I wish I had a mini that nice looking and simple.

Prosniper: you can get 1/8" copper from Lowes, its there...

thanks mate for that :wink:

Oh yeah, I forgot...

About a week ago I was able to bring it up to about 140-150 psi with my friend's manual pump... The ammo went right threw 3 bean cans :D

I know 150 psi is kind of dangerous but i just had to try it!

150 PSI is pushing it a bit I guess, but its OK if its only once I guess. (just dont do it often)
What do you usually take it to?

LOL, but remember, your cannon is made out of copper, and his is PVC... which is a big difference in pressure ratings!

pretty nice- but i'd recommend using a blowgun trigger or a pressure washer handle. i'd be mpre realistic in a battle.
edit 1- sorry, i meant it'd be more realistic.
