there a snug fit and dont roll out the barrel coz i have caster oil near the breech on the inside, the marble basically sticks to the inside of the barrel.
although some marbles i buy don't even need that the fit as snug as you could want. on the other hand 5/8" sinkers :lol: are the most ideal ammo i could look for because they are lead they mold to the inside of the barrel if they are a tad big.

haha mintie wrappers lol i use tissues or shopping bags if i need wading

You really are the master dude. You have inspired me to get back into piston cannons. I want to make one virtually exactly the same but in copper and with a longer barrel. :D

Yeah I was thinking of using some stainless steel pipe. I work at a hospital and there doing some renovations and there seems to be a hell of a lot of the stuff hanging around :) I just have to get around to designing something that i can produse without too much difficalty. But hey I'll get there. I'll just have a look around here and see what I can pull off.

thanks U-2... i cant wait til your new gun gets completed, man it will be a masterpiece good luck and thnx for the comment

edit: @ bubba

I've only built combustions! Plus I love the BIG BANG lol. But I'lll get back to you guys if I need any help!




oh and this thing at 260psi is louder than my combustion...... on the vids it sounds quiet but thats coz the mic in the camera dampens loud sounds.

EDIT EDIT:: OK people time to get serious... are there any specific questions or things i have missed that you want me to answer? i would be more than happy to answer them.

peace
~chaos


EDIT EDIT EDIT::: ok i think i must have covered everything,it running on propane wasn't terribly successfully but it saved having to pump it after every shot :lol:
