Been out of the game for over a year or two now, but here's a nice new simple little cannon I've just made, propane tank for the resevoir, 1/4 inch ball valve, 3/4 inch barrel. It's not the most effecient by any means, but I honestly don't care much as this was just a little weekend fun gun! Ive built for efficiency before, so I know what I could have done, but I'm keeping it simple and inefficient for a reason. Shoots fairly nicely, nothing special! Painted in a matte aluminum with some insulation over the barrel assembly.

Thanks guys, Clean looking was mainly my goal, and Yeah I haven't been building much lately, the past couple years have been so busy, but I've finally came back again and started building more.

So, how did you attach the valve? Weld? braze? solder? epoxy?
I managed to weld a 1lb propane tank with a mig once, but it was really hard and I kept burning through it. Eventually I had to give up and just epoxy the leaks :)

Also, wow, silver paint that actually looks good :)

Drilled and Tapped, then theres a 1/4 inch nipple, 90 degree elbow, nipple then Valve. And I've never attempted to weld, nor do I plan on it haha. And thanks haha, I was reluctant on using it in fear of how it would turn out.
