new golf ball cannon

Unread postAuthor: trae08 » Sun Aug 12, 2007 9:10 pm

ok heres my new gun. it shoots golf balls and anything else like spuds for example. i found a 3 way manifold that ive had for a while so i have my gauge quick connect and safety pop off all in one hole drilled in my chamber. i dont plan on painting this gun so please dont suggest it. "but if i do it will be a lime green color" the chamber is about 13 inches of 4 inch pipe the barrell is 5 ft of golf ball pipe "sdr 21" ill get a video up but no guarantees when i will be able to " ill try an get one in a week or so"

any more questions just ask...




"gauge quick connect and 140 psi safety pop off all with one hole drilled into my chamber"
Image

" the 1 1/2 sprinkler valve. the 1/4 inch valve is in the open position i fixed it that way so i can add a spring to pull it open"
Image

"sleeved golf ball barrell"
Image






anyway i added a bolt to the gun makes everything so much easier. i messed up on the first try and didnt make it go far enough forward so i had to add a new section thats why theres 2 "locks" instead of 1. heres some pics.pics go like this.
closed
the second "lock" where i messed up
open
the "bolt"
the tools i used. no more no less

thanks. i have another 3 1/2 foot 4 inch chamber that i use this barrell with to anf it has 2 elbows "so an over and under" but that chamber is for when im using a compressor. this small chamber is for using my paint ball tank.

yea the 3 way is great saves from having so many holes.

thanks. i try and save them up throughout the week and crush them all at the same time rather then one by one a day


edit: "heres the other chamber.. im very aware of the crookedness in those elbows but when i realized it was like that it was to late"

Very nice. I like the idea of using a repair coupling as a loading bolt. They seal pretty well when tightened from what I think I remember.

Also, I like the inline configuration better. I don't know why, but an over-and-under config. with a sprinkler valve on top just turns me off. Always has, for some reason.

This looks like a very nice cannon. I agree that you shouldnt paint the gun, because the sdr21/grey pipe looks really cool with the contrast of the white already. I also prefer the inline chamber for some reason. What is your prefered pressure with this cannon?

thanks for all thr great feedback. i use this gun at aprox 100 psi.

edit: also the slip fix i used for the loading mech is actully very hard to use,get on ur gun, or slide up an down when its on ur gun. so i just took a knife an cut the rubber seals now it seals and slides easily

Why does it seem like I'm the only person whose parents don't do something that would directly benefit my hobbies? I wish my dad owned a pressure-rated ABS factory, or something... :D
