My first cannon 2nd qev on itsway. All parts off the shelf items easily available down under

Threads merged and edited by jrrdw.
350mmx20mm gal pipe, reducer, T, ball valve+shradder, ball valve trigger, dead space, elbow, elbow. 1916 Eastern elite arrow id6mm od8mm, sleeved snug as in id8mm alum pipe. Barrell is seated on alum straight edge. The rare earth magnets make accuracy...laser like. I have moved them around with very noticeable effect.

Good work, and it's worth making a new thread for launchers. The built in Maglite mount is a good idea, and the iron sights are decent too. I'd have the rear site closer to the breech to increase sight radius, but I doubt that'd be a great factor in the accuracy of this gun.

Two quick tips on the forum, when you're posting a launcher, put it in the Showcase section, and this isn't a really quick board, we might get some 30-50 posts a day, so it'll take a day or two before you get a fair number of comments.
