Portabalizing A burst disc gun

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Wed Nov 15, 2006 6:30 pm

So I was thinking.... I really like my burst disc cannon. I want to make a smaller one that's a little more compact.

The biggest drawback to these type is that you hve to be near an air source to fire them.

I wouldn't like dealing with the hassle of co2. Instead, I want to be able to make a tank attached to the gun that I could pre-fill and take somewhere. Then when it's time to shoot, I bleed air from the reserve tank into the main chamber.

I'm not really sure how to go about doing it though. Help me please.

...the alternative would be to make a triggered burst disk - the duel disk kind.
(I believe it's technicaly a "cascade failure" system - and is explained in the wiki)

BLB specifically noted that such was discussed and explained in the 'wiki'. I was simply directing you to the specified article. Maybe you were expecting to be spoon fed the answer?
