I finished it!!!!!!!!!!

Unread postAuthor: Spudgun on Crack » Mon Jun 25, 2007 6:15 pm

I finished my first pneumatic, I will call it "Da Bazooka", it is a simple cannon that is made of all copper pipe and brass fittings. It has a 24.8688 cubic inch chamber for air and an 18 inch long 1/2inch barrel.

Spec's
Barrel- 18inches of 1/2 copper pipe
Chamber- 24 inches of 3/4 inch copper pipe
Valve- Threaded ball valve
Connectors- Two male connecters
Filling- Tubeless tire valve

Features
It has a mock suppressor that slides on and off of the actual barrel, On this suppressor is a 45 degree grip frame with mounts for a scope and laser.

Testing

I brought it outside and fired it twice once at 10psi to make sure it worked and again at 30psi, then my bike pump broke and the needle on the bike pump gauge snapped off, stupid Chinese made pump.

I have pictures so here they are!

I like it :)

I guess the next step would be to work on a sprinkler valve.

NoXi how did you notice that lol?

Yes it is an ion frame, all the threads on it got stripped from heavy play and it is useless. I got the new punisher's all black frame.

I am going to go get a scope. a laser, a flashlight, and a red dot and put it on the thing.

Also i think it would look awesome if it were in a black metal case and then you could reassemble the gun on the spot with one charge of air in the chamber with all the scopes and crap.

i have an idea for my cannon that i believe will work, a simple yet effective breech loading design. It would be standard copper pipe 1/2in or 3/4in with a small half pipe section in it where you could load a projectile in, then i would have a 1/2in or 3/4in couple either spring loaded or elastic powered that would be pushed foward and held to load a projectile then when you release it comes back into place and it covers the loading hole enabling the user to fire the gun.
I believe this will work but it will take away a little bit of its power.

I will go make this right now and post pictures!

LOL, its not actually an ion. An ion is an atom which has had electrons removed or gained. But this is iron!
I like your stock though
