survivor rifle

Unread postAuthor: Sticky_Tape » Thu May 01, 2008 7:54 pm

Hello just back after watching survivor did anybody see the so called high powered rifle? I'm just wondering what was that powered by there was a muzzle flash but it wasn't very powerful as in you could see the bullet going through the air.

I'm thinking it was CO2 powered.

Not what I as expecting when they said it was "high powered", but it did have "some" authority. :)

I just thought that it was cool and I was wondering how it would work internally and what would it be powered by. You could tell it wasn't very powerful they would be *about* 20' away from the target they would pull the trigger and it would hit the bottle in about a second thats slow for a high powered rifle if it was a actuall m50 that it sorta looked like the bullet would get to the bottle in 8ms?

Somehow I knew somebody was going to start a topic about this...

The "rifle" was just an air cannon. The muzzle flash was fake; added in by the effects guys afterward.

Damn forgot to mention I originally thought that the muzzle flash was fake but I didn't know that it was added in by se I thought that the gun made it with like A small gas exsplosion or somthing at the end of the barrel.

That's why I don't watch these shows, everything about them is "fake". I remember on an episode of Fear Factor, the flames were coming out of the ground before the car that they were dropping hit it (And cars wont burst into a fireball from being dropped anyways).

Sheeh.

Depends on who's driving them. My old Chemistry teacher has a licence to drive around carrying up to 20 kilos of Nitroglycerine - that might burst into a fireball.

There would be a fireball, it just wouldn't exist long enough for your brain to perceive anything other than a short flash. Although if the gas that was previously in the tank got ignited when it was mixed in with the air surrounding the blast... There could be an extremely small chance of ending up with a thermobaric explosive type of situation. Or if the mix was rich, a proper Hollywood type fireball.
