Easy, but good stand for a cannon?

Unread postAuthor: aj23 » Sat Jun 02, 2012 7:30 pm

I'm looking to build a stand for my cannon, but only have like an hour or two of time to put it together. My cannon is like 6.5 feet long and quite powerful with a 3' long chamber, with a coaxial design using a piston valve.

Can I build some type of stand that can adjust the angle easily?

Thanks

How exactly could I modify that to handle such a large cannon though? Are there any guides?

You can make costume wood one that can be easily turned. There is a guy on YouTube who did that. Sorry I don't remember the video.

I made one from 2 pieces of wood in 30min for my hybrid:

It deals with the big recoil from firing at mix 20 or more, it should work for a pneumatic.

Its not like the cannon weighs 100kg just find the centre of gravity, put the tri pod there.
