40mm launcher

Unread postAuthor: farcticox1 » Mon Mar 04, 2019 6:44 pm

Starting a post for my 40mm lancher, planned ammo is foam balls (practice golf balls) Got a few parts assembled, waiting for a 1/2" QEV off Ebay.

Pressure will just be from my compressor 150ish, I've got to build that as well :shock:
