Twitchez Ultimate Ghetto Pneumatic

Unread postAuthor: TwitchTheAussie » Tue May 15, 2007 2:58 am

Ok my plan was to make the cheapest pneumatic I could, so I pulled my Ghetto V.2 apart for the valve and schrader and got a bigger bottle. This one has a feature unlike its little brothers, it has a (insert dramatic music here)... it has a BARREL! Yes my friends Twitch has finally added a barrel. This increased performance significantly as you would suspect :lol:
I found a hunk of would for the stock and zippy-tied it on. And yes I did use a peice of hose to hold ithe barrel to the nozzle and also the only thing I spent money on was the epoxy to hold everything together :lol:

Now for the piccies:

It looks soo humble...Should have entered it Twitch, sure would have gotten my vote. :lol:

EDIT: just realised that if you scrapped the zip ties, and used shoe laces instead, the whole thing would have been made up of 100% recycled materials (minus eproxy, hell if you could recycle used eproxy, you are the ghetto legend :lol: ). Now that's a true ghetto cannon!

It's so ghetto, you recycled a ghetto cannon to make a ghetto cannon. It's like a ghetto cannon squared!
