beer gun

Unread postAuthor: mike1010 » Sun Jul 29, 2007 8:40 pm

no no its not a pneumatic beer tap :roll: i had to explain to my friend. but it could shoot beer if you really wanted it to. this is my cheap beer bottle experiment, its small and really simple, and i love the look and feel of the aluminum beer bottle, it also holds pressure really well. what do you think? this whole cannon was like 10 $ and i had most of the parts already. the handle is my favorite part and it is much stronger than it looks as it has a long bolt running through the center and a nut and washer to cinch it up with a cap for looks. here are my pics

Looks like a manual chaingun type firing handle.
Do you know what pressure those bottles will blow?

and i'm sure bud light loves the product placement, :lol: but ya these bottles are great.
EDIT: @ frankrede the bottles will handle at least 200psi and probly more but i think aluminum will split rather than explode, so its not too worrisome.

The aluminum bottle idea I like. I wonder how much glass ones would hold...

Oh well, I like the gun.

im not sure what you mean mm but it goes hold 16fl oz and you can thread a 1/2inch close nipple in with little or no modification and then add some jb weld and your set its super easy and makes a nice clean chamber.
