wouldn't the extra screw holes in the chamber weakin the chamber walls and increase the chance of an explotion?? Do you think the fan is worth this risk??? I was thinking the less holes in the chamber the better.

any one?

You could thread 20 screws into the chamber, and you would increase the chance of failure so marginally that it is not even worth considering. Mounting the fan is very easy, you should beable to figure it out if you managed to build the gun itself.

This is how I'm mounting the discussed, 'camp fan', in my chamber. It utilizes a 2.5" pipe hangar, 7/16" bolt cut to length with nut/washer, 1/2" plug, and 3" coupling halfed. This 3" coupling can be slid in a 4" chamber provided the gun has a 4" female adapter.

Ill provide further description on request, but I think this to be quite straight forward. Anyways the pictures are hosted below.

For the love of God, change your avatar to something different then Dragon Ball Z... [Disregard, just my humble opinion]
