Eclipse 40mm VIDEO

Unread postAuthor: Solar » Mon Jun 02, 2008 4:41 am

Rough edits, but you get the idea. Thanks for voting the Eclipse as favorite guys!

The numbers I am calling out are in FPS, unless you hear 300, which was the operating pressure. There are a few hiccups along the way, most caused by the weak spring we were testing in the firing piston. We started shooting the foam POW rockets, then paintballs in sceptre grenade shells, then with dixie cups and paper towels. The last shots are using zip-fizz plastic bottles that have 4oz of liquid in them. Note the extra bit of kick.

about 7mb. 2 minutes 43 seconds

50 foot range. Oh, and the part with the lower velocity shots ramping down is from the air running low.

I was about to say, there was one which seemed to drop dead before the target and you called 82 or something :wink:

Didn't appreciate how slick the chamber rotation was before, it's very nice seeing it click round after each shot.

Good watching :)

Congratulations on winning most popular gun on the site!

It is truly a piece of art and is a good example of how professional spudguns can become!

Love how well the drum revolves...

I wish I had the opportunaty to machine a cannon like you did.
