Unread postAuthor: trae08 » Sat Apr 12, 2008 11:20 pm

ok i been wanting to do this for a while no but never had the time. but today i finally did.

i took a 3/4 inch end cap filled it half way with epoxy and put a 12 gauge shot gun cleaning jag in there. i let it sit for a hour and i put a 3 ft long piece of 3/4 pipe in the end cap. i dropped in a c02 cartridge and it hit the jag and went flying out... pretty sweet. figured id share.

id post pics but the concept it pretty simple


some might think this is stupid but i was intrigued...

I was just thinking about this. Infact, I even posted a thread about "What to do with a Co2 cartridge?" and someone said make a launcher. Maybe it was you even, dunno. I'm definetly gonna make one next time I go to Menards to get parts.

Me and a buddy did something similar to this after work awhile back except I just put a wood screw through the cap. The cartrige never went more than 10-15' in the air, how do they do for you?

Hmm, the projectile will have a hard time flying foward.
Maybe add some fins?

I once tried pushing nail through a cartridge it was fun because it went everywhere :D but didn't really fly

I already have a post with this idea, I made a spring setup and it hits hard on the head. It works great.
