multi-shot breechloading pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: iknowmy3tables » Mon Jan 01, 2007 10:02 pm

Man what a day, today I made this new gun from spare parts lying around
Image this is the full pic of the cannon, the main air tank is made from 3’ pvc, the reservoir consist of the stock and handle
Image
There is a 1” valve and a 1/2” by opening or closing the 1” I can shoot 1 more powerful shot, or multiple weaker shots
Image
Eeeeeewwww :oops: now comes the story behind my gun. Okay as I was gluing the stock together but I couldn’t find a rubber mallet so I used a baby metal hammer within reach, I began to hammer and looked away but then realized I cracked the tee I freaked out and took off the stock but I couldn’t take it apart and I didn’t have a replacement, then with little time I cut a 1” pipe with an slant edge made so air could flow throughout the tee, then primed it, covered it in glue and put it in then spent the rest of the day drowning it in coats and coats of cement its. Its sealed know but it looks like a sin against spud guning :lol:

I see you're about as good with primer as I am :roll:
Is it just me or does that pipe in the stock look a little yellowed?

NICE! I like the multi-shot capability, don’t like the ball valves use two modded sprinkler valves that way all you have to do is load squeeze trigger one then trigger two, and repeat. The first one fills the chamber and acts like a safety the second fires the gun.
Oh and the wrap the tee in duck tape.

the multi shot mode is really weak and sprinkler valves are more bulky and require presure to work so a firing valve wouldn't be in my favor but a chamber to tank valve is a pretty good idea since its 1"inch and I have a spare sprinkler valve thanks I'll try it

edit: oh you posted befor I finished I understand why you say so but with the curent configeration and stats I think it should go vise versa

probably,alot of experienced spudders wouldnt recomend using it as its been effected by the elements and it weakens the pipe,something to do with the UV rays,but I've also had pipe turn yellow from sitting under the house for a few years but only one side was yellow....
