TB Retro Barrel

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Sun Jun 25, 2006 11:42 pm

I'm going to see if I can make a retro tennis ball barrel. Using the old version of TB Launchers, pop cans taped together for a barrel, and a PVC Chamber. Has anybody ever tried this before? Can anybody think of a way to attach this to my gun?

Lol, if your going to go for retro do it the right way...

It was Steel Cans (not pop cans) for the chamber and the barrel... all the cans the same size and Duct Taped together and use lighter fluid for the fuel....

for the barrel your best off going with pringle cans. They fit the tennis balls or baseballs almost perfectly. Backyard Ballistics, that book on all the homemade cannons and whatnot has a section on a tennis ball mortar made out of pringle cans.

I knew I was doing something wrong. So I should either use pringles or soup cans.
