This is my cannon purple storm

Unread postAuthor: cb4289 » Sat May 12, 2007 9:05 am

This is my cannon purple storm; I made it to be very simple in 1 afternoon. It is made from PCV parts; it has a ¾ in ball valve with Vaseline on it. The tank is 3in. dia. And 16 in long. I est. over 100 cu in. I am working on co2 power for it; I want to up date is a little. I thought a coat of paint would look better than purple primer. I am also thinking of a modified sprinkler valve for the trigger instead of the ball valve. Any thought on these ideas would be helpful. I want to use co2 in my cannon how much time would I have to space between shots so the pvc will not shatter, just a question.

Regulated Co2, around 100 PSI should be fine but if you plan on just connecting a Co2 tank, (not a 12 gram), dig a deep hole, stand in it, and then connect the Co2, the hole will protect others and you will have a grave. The Co2 will instantly cause it to explode.

frankrede the guns are similar but not the same.

WTF? Since when does excess primer weaken the chamber?

This gun should be fine for anything under 100psi.
