the tank is not that heavy lighter than a FE and i like the look o and for the crooked part it was perfect till i had to take it apart and i think i bent it a bit hit its still a blast to shoot. co2 would worki guess but that will be in another project down the road. glad to see you guys like it but im wondering what the heck to shoot other than darts made with nails.

I disagree, using plans is not lame - but make sure they're your own plans (using other people's plans is uninventive).
I wouldn't even consider building any cannon without some form of planning, and at least a basic "blueprint".

Nice launcher - but why is the blowgun upside down?

If you put a thousand psi in that tank, it would blow out from under your arm when you shot it.

no to mention you would need a different valve and such. :wink:


very nice gun, that tank is quite a find.

I agree that using other peoples plans is stupid though, misunderstanding there mike.

But I dont know how anyone can build something without putting it on paper first, thats where all my ideas evolve and I get things straight!

btw, glad to hear its been straightened! :lol:

what do you want the valve to do? just release the air and then have another shoot the projectile, or actually use it for shooting the projectile? Do you want to make it or buy it?
