A Homemade, Air-Powered Muzzleloader For Big Game

Unread postAuthor: Clarke » Mon Jun 22, 2009 12:33 am

I was browsing the net and came across this beast of a Pneumatic, shooting a 200 grain bullet at 1150 PSI :shock: I reckon this as good as it gets !

DONT FOLLOW THE LINK IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH

Im not sure if its been posted before and i didnt want to post it in the cannon showcase as its not my gun so Mod's feel free to move it.

Just a note, threads covering the killing of animals is against the forum rules. Nice gun, wrong forum for it entirely.

Think again <--- good enough for buffalo :shock: a point which I won't illustrate however because as pointed out above, there are forum rules about animate targets.

Old airgun link...I saw a pic of that one (or similar(?)) used by Napoleon's merc.s when I was very young and the search was on!!!

Sort of funny that guy's info (OP link) would be against the rules. (Good rules though IMO).
Can't find the link now but I was looking at a .50 cal. that shot lines of 2 liters.

BTW, There was a humourous arguement between Barnes and Quackenbush...One saying the other "shot a hole in ceiling" at airgun show, other insisting he didn't...IDK if it's still going.
It would be cool if we could get one of them to write a post on SF's. 8)

I have read the forum rules and i dont believe i have stepped over the line.

Discussion of shooting anything at any person and/or animal is prohibited, and may result in a permanent banning of your account.

I have not disscussed what it is used for in my post, but merely wanted to share a mind blowing homemade Pneumatic that i had stumbled upon :( . Wether it be used for plinking or hunting all i wanted to show was the raw power of this Pneumatic and im getting flamed for it.

The article barely even talks about hunting at all.

IMO....200 grains isn't so "beastly" if you consider that a GB weighs about 700 grains.

Clarke,

Don't get too frustrated, but this IS old news.

By Spudfiles standards, this thing is weak. :wink:

Will send you a pm. :)
