My first and only pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: Fat Pants » Sat Apr 14, 2007 6:37 pm

w00tz0rz just stole my sisters laptop (which has an integrated cam) and finally got some pics!

The schrader has been replaced, new end cap fitted and about 4 inches has been cut off from the chamber.

Image
Whole cannon.

Image
BV. Closed.

Image
End cap with schrader and silencer, which worked at first, but then i blew the end off and it kinda don't work now.

Image
Waste pipe silencer, didn't work, i don't think.

Image
Silencer again.

Comments?

EDIT: Oops, sorry for large pics, i did resize, obviously not enough.

Looks nice and clean. But it lookes to me to be too big. How long was the gun before you cut anything off?

That's the original length in the pics, i had to cut a couple of inches off the chamber (schrader snaped off and the endcap was araldited on (sealing the schrader)) So i had to get the trusty hacksaw out.

Gives a good punch though, good length i guess, nice and accurate/dangerous with 2.5 inch nails.

Everything is 15mm btw.

:P It's not that big, only about 1.5m

EDIT: Just whacked the tape measure out: Barrel length (muzzle to BV) = 50" (130cm). Overall length (muzzle to end of cannon) = 56" (142cm). Chamber (end cap to end of cannon) =53" 135cm) Bit connecting chamber to barrel (elbow to elbow) = 4.5" (12cm)
