poor man's AT-4/CS

Okay it wasn't really cheap ... a few hundred dollars in tools, parts, and effort went into building this approximation of the AT4. I think it looks cute.

Orbit Watermaster 1"
Sch40 chamber and barrel with 1.5" pipes
Electric Solenoid actuation
Ammo: Sabot + BBs
Range: Poor ... like an LPEG ... hahahaha.

yeah, Krylon Fusion didn't have an OD Green so it was hunter green for now. I'm going to use that as a primer and then put on OD Green later. Lol. Now to make the stickers.

Thats pretty amazing looking! If i was going to make one i would make a huge co-ax the the whole big pipe is the chamber but you may be new to spudding and that looks great :D .

That was the cannon in its preassembled form. I had a pneumatic actuated cannon of the same design but it was too much trouble to put in a tube, so the electric went in instead.

@PVC Arsenal 17
So Krylon does make a Fusion OD green. Thanks for the tip, I'll look for it.

@Bluetooth
Coaxials are still too advanced for me. To start with, I don't have a lathe nor know anyone with one. Was thinking of making a diaphragm cannon after winter.

Wow... Now thats a messed up chamber to barrel ratio. That is really badass. I like the 2 AR's in the first pic (if thats what they are). Very nice gun. You did a great job on the outer shell.

A coaxile isnt advanced at all. I made one before I made a sprinkler gun. If you use a 1 1/2in cap in 2inch pipe that makes a great piston.
