Looks pretty good, but you still need a paintjob (in my book, every gun does).

Yay it does need a paintjob but i used clear primer so no spots. I dont have a pressure gauge but i pump it about 20 times with a special adapter and it works great! It does some crazy damage. I will post some pics and damn this think is loud!!

Looking good! I assume the piston is a 3/4" cap. What is your ammo?

I could have gotten a gallon but i dont think I need that much :) For the knive its 1 of three. Im really good at throughing them and i made throwing scissors that work great. Just break the handles of and glue them so the blades are strait with each other.

okay, there's a specialty plumbing store near me, that would probably have the primer. I get ball bearings like that, by 5 gallon buckets from my friends dad for free in all sizes. great buckshot with a yogurt cup in a three inch diameter barrel :twisted:

it looks good (I love the look of tee-valved piston cannons). Only problem I see is that front bushing; it does not appear to be seated very deeply...
