I just found this site and thought it was neat. It is a marble gun that some guy built and has very interesting features. Notable features include the trigger mechanism and the barrel rifling technique.

Kind of "interesting" he is using abs, but i still love the spring actuation of the ball valves an his rifling technique, so simple but effective.

Wasn't this the one simo had claimed to be his own design, only to be shot down in a fit of forum drama?

I checked out the rest of this guy's site and found his picture. I don't know what simo looks like but if someone does, that rumor can be cleared.

Fear not, it had been conclusively established that simo was not in fact the builder of this cannon.

Oh god not that web page again :lol: We practically had a full law suit on simo, we even had our own evidence room of stuff we had compiled against him. :wink: Well maybe not that much, but we had a lot of evidence against him.

Yeah, it is very nice.

Wow. I didn't realize this page was that popular. I will say, however, this is not my design. I will not claim it as my own. Hell, I won't even build a cannon like this. :lol:
