Overkill

Unread postAuthor: Brian the brain » Sun Mar 11, 2007 2:09 pm

Well, here's a preview for you guys!

Cannon name: OVERKILL
built by Brian the brain


Type: Pneumatic
Material: Steel
Barrel: 1.5 "( approx) aluminium.
Valve: Homemade high performance piston valve
Exhaust: currently, the old sawed-off's ballvalve set-up

Max pressure: 30 bar

Powered by : customised high pressure handpump ( soon to get a shockpump added)
Ammo: BB-buckshot, spuds, cast lead slug ( maybe later...)


I didn't want to keep this one from you guys, even if it's not completely finished.THe ballvalve exhaust is forked up from over-tinkering, so it leaks.I'll change it to a 1.25"one and fill from the (new) bent handle.
The barrel and chamber will be closer together, once I install the new elbow, wich I already have.It's a 1.5 elbo with 2"threads on one side, wich threads all the way into the Tee.
The barrel will be chopped as soon as I finish the rest.
It will be Brians Overkill Sawed-off Shotgun, B.O.S.S. or Overkill for short

Oh..at 9 bar it's about as load as it predecessor at 23...

This is how it will look soon.I edited the picture.The elbow that will get the chamber closer to the barrel is a 1.5"one, wich will thread all the way into the 2" Tee.
The barrel will be sawed off when I know what length the chamber will be when it's connected to the new elbow.

Business end.At 30 bar this thing will take your head off, so keep clear...

I've gotta disagree with mopherman, it ain't gonna win a beauty contest :P

Ah well, it makes up for it in the power department

30bar and a 1.5" lead slug is going to have a hell of a recoil. Not to mention the force at the other end.

I don't care if you have to hijack a satelite phone, you've got to get us a picture of it blowing a door in :D

...preferably not one someone would ask questions about but yeah, I'd have my money on the cannon.

Are you going to make the old sawed off handle on the gun bigger? It kind of ruins the whole HUGE theme 8)

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

The handle will become slightly bigger.And I agree it's not gonna win a beauty contest....I was aiming for something else...like most impressive handheld.

And once I change the exhaust to a non leaky one..it will shoot "harder"..

It has about three times the push of the old sawed-off...remember what it did to steel cans and 2 layers of plywood in the same shot???

Take that and multipy by 3
