ARC-v2.0

Unread postAuthor: )DEMON( » Thu May 10, 2007 2:42 pm

This is my cannon, the ARC. I made it a while ago out of spare parts and make shift fittings just to have a little fun. It was ghetto but it was powerfull, it had a modified sprinkler valve and all.

Now I have got some more parts for it and it works like a charm :D

It has a 40mm barrel about 3 feet long, a 75mm chamber little over 2 feet, modified Hunter Jartop sprinkler valve, over and under configuration, 0-100psi pressure gauge, scharder fill valve and 3 white cable ties :P

I finished it a few days ago so I will really test it on the weekend and make some nice vids of a TV getting destroyed :twisted: I tested it today, the recoil was impressive, it suprized me. It is nice and light, comfortable to hold to and very user freindly.

Now for pics.

What is a jubilee clip?

Well this seems to be a universal blowgun made for various companies and put under various names but you should be able to find them around. I would have preferred to use those small ones with the red rubberized trigger but I have not seen those where I live. Don't really remember where I got that one but I live in South Africa so it wouldn't matter anyway.

Actually that was a latex glove container found with hair dye products. It was oblitorated after it hit a target, it was filled with stones. Just thought it would make an interesting pic.

I am going to make some videos tomorrow and will get many damage pics. I will also explain how to make a co2 fill station for cannons out of an unregulated paintball co2 tank. The trick is to fill slowly, that way all the co2 expands, warms up and you can fill to whatever pressure you want safely.

Thanks for all the comments guys :D

Hose claps are not flexable enough for my liking, they can bend the PVC and look funny sometimes. I have some big ones. The cable ties look better to me.

Ok, I haven't edited any video yet but I took some shots (2) at a TV, the glass was much thicker than I thought it would be. Was fun.
Still have to shoot it some more, the thing is barely limping. So here is some pics of the TV and co2 set up.

I made the co2 set up from a paintball remote coil, a spyder ASA and a scharder valve adapter line(< making up words but you know what I mean)

awesome! I would like to have one of those for my bb rifle.

and this one will have some interesting music. :wink:
