Favorite Spudgun Feature

Unread postAuthor: Velocity » Sun Sep 10, 2006 1:04 pm

In the poll, I just listed a few basic things; everyone will undoubtedly come up with their own favorites (just selected "other" in the poll, and leave a comment about it). It can be for any type of spudgun (pneumatic, combustion, hybrid, bbmg, etc).

My personal favorite feature is probably barrel-sealing tee valves.

Barrel-sealing tee valves are my favorite.
I also like 2" sch 80 due th the versitility.

Spudstuff, thanks for your worthless post... [Id say if you dont care to expound, keep to the poll]

My would also have to T pistons in general. Although I have yet to construct a working one, I just love how they have so much ground to improve which is the fun thing about spudding, innovation. Some of these valves are made out of solid roundstock so that allows you to be very creative and strive for the best performance. This also doesnt confine you to the normally hardware store aviable parts. I just love it since it allows you to be, creative.

i like something portable, easy and fast to use, and concealable.
so thats why my favorite cannon i made is just a 2" pipe with a ignitor stuck into it, NOTHING can top that, u hardly need to vent it.

I choose other-I enjoy the fact that i can build a cannon that i can shove just about anything down the barrel and shoot it and it's legal! If i could vote twice, i'de choose the barrel sealing 4 way valve i'm building with wooden 2" piston. Hows that for diversatee?

I'd at least use a sprinkler or 1/2" ball valve to vent that big of a pilot chamber. A blowgun won't cut it.

The piston is 3 1/2" long, pluss the wood block i'm going to use as a stop, 1 3/4", so thats going to leave me with about 2" air space. That worked out to be just as small or smaller pilot chamber then most t valves. I think so anyway, i'll find out for sure very soon!

Yes 2 chambers, 3" round, 5' long, the barrel is 2" dia. X 8' long.

Everything is 2" eccept the chambers.

The blow gun has 1/4" hole straight through, even the plunger/piston/valve, no real restriction there.

P.S.-Thanks !

I'd have to say a 4,500 HPA tank with a regulator strapped to the side...

EDIT: that is, the regulator and tank strapped to the side of the gun... not the regulator strapped to the side of the tank... grrr....
