Beware of brittle chambers...

Unread postAuthor: Kris.Is.Awesome » Tue Jul 25, 2006 10:54 pm

Allright, so I build my first combustion a few weeks ago. a SMALL pill bottle. It was nothing. So I got a bigger bottle, and a better sparker.. It worked pretty good. Some air leaked around the barrel, so I hot- glued it.


I guess that was a bad idea, because I shot it today, sealed off, and it blew up in my hand. Completeley blew off the 'bottom' of the bottle, and split the top.

It hurt a bit, but I was holding it just right. When you go and make your guns- make sure you dont use the brittle plastic...

yes a pill bottle is not rated for pressure so it will burst if the barrel is too small
