Hi everyone, this is my first time posting a pneumatic launcher i made and my first time using a QEV. I know its nothing spectacular but it shoots double A batterys really fast! I do not have a chronograph sadly. This is one of my first projects and i am hoping to have more soon!

One of my first launchers was a battery launcher. I used sprinkler valves with battery operated solenoids. Performance was garbage, but it was fun. It was a fun thing and you also have a fun thing. I'd like to see yours work.

I also had a sprinkler valve powered air gun for my first pneumatic launcher it just shot marbles! Very weak, but fun to shoot around.

I just watched it. It's awesome. It slings a battery pretty damn fast. Nice work.

Nice work for a first build! Looks like the first shot hit head-on and the second shot hit sideways.

Any reason you're shooting at night?
