Even though the valve is a 2" manual ,I open it by gripping it with both hands and very quickly. It doesn't go whoosh . it goes pow. The cart is used mainly for welding but doubles as a cannon cart. It could use some painting.

Nice cannon! I assuming when you go bigger your objective is to acheive more power right? Have you ever constructed a piston cannon? If not I would highly suggest it for you because you seem to like power (spud gun power of course). Your right about how your cannons are getting bigger.

Sergant it is a 3" chamber considering that his 2" barrel is slightly smaller then the chamber.

It is a 3" chamber 5' in length. The barrel is also 5' in length. the valve and external fittings make up about 18" . I have never made a piston type cannon I've only been doing this about 5 months . I started to build a small coaxial type a few days ago and I got sidetracked and built a mini marble and paintball thing out of left over pieces from other projects. I'ts a cute little thing I might post it sometime, it will shoot a paintball about 400ft. It probably weighs about a pound.
