Pimp's Hybrid (Design)

Unread postAuthor: CS » Wed Jul 13, 2005 1:57 pm

This is what my next gun will look like its a hybrid. This is what all the colors stand for in the picture.

Blue= 4" Sch 40 Coupling
Light Blue= 4x2 Bushing
Green= 4" Male Adapter
Purple= 4" Cap
Red= 2" Union
Yellow= 1 1/2" or 2" Barrel
Brown= Sch 80 4" Pipe

A couple of questions for you expert spudgunners. What is more powerful a camera flash or a spark plug (I should know this). I was wondering if i used golf balls for ammo could I use rubber stopper (like on a paintball gun) and not have to use the union (2x to 3x mixes).

Next is my metering system this is how it works. You open number 2 and 4 then fill your chamber (with air) to the right pressure then turn #2 and 4 back off. Then open #1 to let the air out of the pipes the close it agian. After that you open #3 and fill the propane to the right pressure then close #3 then open #4 to let the propane into the chamber close #4 then your ready to fire!

Pink= Pressure Gauge
Red= Gas Cock
Black= Pipe
Blue= Air Hose
Yellow= Pipe going to Chamber
Green= Propane

you want sch 80 fittings too, sch 40 wont cut it, and you'd still need a union, because i dont think the stopper'd hold past 3 atmospheres of pressure

Good desgin, Personally i have never tried the camera thing, but i do use spark plugs with a 200,000Volt stun gun, i use 1 for smaller guns a 2 for bigger ones, i would go with the spark plug becasue i have heard that you have to replace the camers flash after a while becasue something wears out i think. Overall i would go with a stungun and a sparkplug set up. I made a hybrid with the spark plugs and it works good. Good luck tell us how it goes.

WOW!! Do you realise that this was posted 9 months ago?

BTW- I use camera, can be a pain in the rump but it makes a big ball of sparks if done right.
