I personally would like to see another marble sniper, though the copper pneumatic sounds like a good idea. It all depends on your preferences on types of cannons.

i think i am going to go with the copper gun. it will most likly be a .5in chamber, .25in barrel, diaghram with blowgun and co2. i plan on shooting homemade darts. do you think this could go through a can from 75ft away?

I would personally make a pneumatic bb gun with a modified nail gun valve, good scope and a gravity fed magazine.

Could you make a gravity fed magazine with those nail darts. I just want to know if anyone has tried it yet. (sorry this is off topic, but it looks like he has a plan now.)
