triple barrel pneumatic design idea.

Unread postAuthor: mikenike192 » Wed Jun 07, 2006 3:23 pm

ok i was thinking of designing a new cannon. And i played around with ideas till i came up with this. It has

2 3" pressure chambers.
5 ball valves (alot i know i will explain)
1 sprinkler valve
2.5" tennis ball barrel (interchangable)
2 1.5" barrels (interchangable)


Image

this is how it will work.

For single shot (using both pressure chambers at once and one barrel)
You will fill up both chambers with tire stem in back. Then close all the ballvalves at the top except for the desired barrel. then fire.

For double shot (using one chamber and one barrel at a time)
Have spud in two different barrels. Fill up both chambers then close one ball valve of the chamber. Then close ball valves of barrels except desired barrel with spud and fire. Open other chamber ball valve close other one and swith barrels to other loaded one using ball valves and fire.

You can then mix and match like do a double barrel shot and then a single shot. Or all three barrels at the same time. You could have all different size barrels you could have like a 1" a 3/4" and a 2" if you wanted to all about combinations.

You should add a really hectic air source like a small fire extinguisher, portible but lots of shots.

i love the idea but unless ball valves are cheap where you live its going to be one expensive gun. but if you have the money that would be one sweet gun

It had a distinct difference in firing times between each of the chambers when he fired it in front of me. It was the most unusual one of all the cannons I have ever witnessed.

thats a pretty cool one but on mine like u can change up both chambers and fire through one barrel for more power. I think he was going for more like a quick fire thing. I might be able to use pvc ball valves are they cheeper than metal ones
