This one uses 2. I plan to build a hand held cannon that uses 1.

I gave 2 to a friend.

And i can build 2 more of these.

No, We ran into a problem at Bastonge. We tried to finish to much in the last week. The electronics were no were near ready, and we scrapped what we had so far. So hopefully it will be ready by D-Day this time. i have 6 weeks and im hopefully have it ready before then.

Everything is Finished. Pics are on my camera at home.

I had to make several modifications.

Instead of 3x 4 way solenoids

i had to use 2x 4 ways and 2x 3 ways, to get the timing right with the pulse valves.

So far at 30 yards i have a 6" group with nerfs.
I am hoping for 2 foot groupings at 100 yards.

it takes approx 2 milliseconds for the chamber to recharge.

Firing chamber runs at 55-60 psi High Pressure storage is 110-120.

Currently we are cycling this thing with 3 Pushbutton switches. because our first run of electronics sucked and we didnt have the timing circuits done properly.

Mk2 - Gets much better electronics
Mk3 - Gets a microcontroller and USB hookup to set valve timing
Mk4 - Gets Vastly updated break which should take us upwards of 6 shots per second How ever in order to do that i am going to have to find high pressure pulse valve as mine can only do up to 125 psi.

They can only fire a barrel every 3 seconds.

Their max Rate of Fire for both barrels is 1rockert per 1.5 seconds.

I shoot 3+ a second. With 1 barrel.

Bummer Socoj,

Looks like you guys won't have it rigged up in time for CDP. I was really hoping to see the new gun against Dr. Doom's gang.

Or at the very least get a one shot one kill :roll: [/quote]
