First Pnuematic.....

Unread postAuthor: Minus » Mon Aug 14, 2006 11:29 am

Cannon Name-Minus's Sniper
Type of Cannon- Pnuematic
Chamber Size- 15" x 1-1/2" pvc (26.5CI)
Barrel Size- 30" x 3/4" cpvc (13.25CI)
Gas Source- 150 psi air compressor
Valve- Pnuematically actuated 1" sprinkler valve
Ammunition- Paintballs and Marbles
Other Details- Took design cues from the Barrett M107. Decorative muzzle break and barrel shroud, Breech loading, Pistol trigger, Flat black paint job. This was my first gun, and definitely won't be the last. The best part is having your boss ask when it's going to be finished so he can shoot it!! Oh, and marbles blowing up spray paint cans is so much fun!!!

That is a very nice looking gun and I like the paintjob a lot. You should consider getting a regulated CO2 on there for fasting firing. Looks good. :D

wow...thanks for all the comments. The handle is from an old Spyder One pb gun I had from years ago. The "stick" on top is the breech loader. Think I'm gonna shorten it a little though...make it less obtrusive. The trigger actually pushes open the blow gun that actuates the sprinkler valve. The blow gun is actually inside the stock right above the trigger. Shortly after the trigger, there is an "exhaust hose" coming out of the stock for the blow gun to vent.

I'll also mention that all the pvc logos/writing was sanded down so the whole gun is smooth. Plus, before it was painted, there were no cement stains!!!

Yeah, I want to enter it, but not sure how exactly. I've read the contest info. Any help??? Oh, and the next will probably be a tennis ball, golf ball, or bouncy ball launcher. Might even make my own piston valve instead of a sprinkler valve.
