wow, that thing looks like a beast! with the hydraulic re-loader and all..

only thing is, it doesn't shoot like a beast. Looks like he's using it at 50-70 psi (lame). I told him on youtube to, "crank that baby to 150+ if your air compressor can handle it". lol

needs paintjob too but man is that a cool looking cannon
good find!

It's not a semi automatic, it's a repeater as the maker said. He's using one blowgun at the back to fire it and another at the front to reload.

must be nice to walk around with a compressor on your backside, don't leave your backyard without one!

spud gunning used to be a minimalist activity. i've seen some real "rube goldberg" spud gun set-ups, dozens of moving parts, no videos of function or damage. i ran one chump of the rube goldberg persuation off of youtube last year (orangetide).

might as well walk around with a heavy cable and use a RAIL GUN.

Yeah I was noticing his velocity wasn't what I would expect. Another foot or so of barrel would really help him out.

Still this is really well constructed.

@MrBad: Lots of guys love their pneumatics for backyard fun. Being a combustion guy myself, I agree that having to have a compressor along for serious big bore shooting is a real drag. Also, who declared spudgunning had to be a "minimalist" activity?? It's not Rube Goldberg if all the parts are designed properly and perform a necessary function. I wouldn't put this gun anywhere close to the Rube Goldberg category.

Now, are you saying that because you really are a minimalist who doesn't care about ROF, power, or range, or because you're jealous of those of us with the brains to design and build these "Rube Goldberg" type designs? :P

That's sounds pretty boring to me. I like the challenge of building something that does a proper job of whatever it's doing.
Sure, I could get a bit of drain pipe and a can of hairspray, but to me, that's not worth building - I want something that means I have to get my brain into action to design and build it.

Really, ultimately, it's what each person makes it. I want my designs to have that element of complexity, so that's what I work towards.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

Shame about separate trigger/reloading controls, he should consider the blow-forward bolt :D
