also what are they using for an air chamber? is that a fire extinguisher? if so how did they adapt it. they say it is used at up to 400 psi.

wow. I just opened the link at school. Didn't see that coming. Luckily no one saw. Anyway, for the brief moment I saw the page, the valve most resembles the valves on this page.

A very powerfull solenoid then lol. Btw I think we should start something bc of ppls profile pictures. If I am in uni and am reading the forums some of these profile pictures (like one where a person holds a gun to there head) doesnt make me feel comfortable. I dont know how to block certain profile pics, but I hate it. This forum is not about real guns and about dead etc

The pictures show it being filled from a bulk tank/hpa tank which is undoubtably regulated.

Seems to be a basic over-under solenoid cannon but useable at 300psi.

Wonder if the the barrel plug skewered by a pin is capable of staying firm if the cannon went off prematurely or if it really is only there to have something to fiddle with before pouring effect powder in.

This mortar has been talked about before, i can't seem to find the thread though.

@ant, glad to see you like my avatar :roll: :P :D
The reason i have that particular pic is that the guy is Eric Banna, an Australian actor- he is in character as "Chopper" in the pic. If anyone would like to edit the pistol out and replace it with a spud, be my guest! :P

Edit:Sorry, i got this thread confused with the mortar one, oh well, i always knew i was a dumb ass.
