so how do i make it go further and faster?

Unread postAuthor: brettdotcom14 » Tue Sep 06, 2005 9:02 pm

i made this Image
the chamber is about 6in and the barrel is about 2ft and its 3/4 in diameter...its all presure rated to 80psi...right now all im using is axe and a spark from a lighter.

i want to make one that shoots tennis balls but i would never thing there would be enough presure to shoot a tennis ball out of it very far using just axe.

what can i do to make it faster and make it go further....dont flame im new!

I understand that your new but you shouldnt just come on and ask questions with out searching. Trust me if you searched for any amount of time you would of found a few things that you can do. But if you want to make your better dont. I would suggest to make a new gun like with a 4" chamber interchangable barrel (2.5 sch(tennis balls) SDR 21(golfballs). A couple of extras I would suggest are chamber fan, stungun ignition, and a propane injection. Since your a new your a noob you might want to try all of them on the same gun but it you do its good practice. Axe will power any size chamber but once you start into the big chambers starting fluid is a better choice (price and power).

Back to the gun posted. Give some general info such as accuracy, loudness, distance, overall performance.

thanks for the info!

the pen gun:
distance: maybe 50ft if im lucky
accuracy: good if i shoot something heavy
loudness: very quiet i could probably take it into school and shoot it off and ppl would probably think its a fart or something lol
overall: its good for the size...but the lighter igniter i used i taped down real tight and the pill bottle is starting to warp...but i shot it about 100 time and it was my first gun i made

the other longer one:
distance: 100ft
accuracy: pretty damn good
loudness: pretty quiet
overall: its ok i would like it to go faster but for my 2nd one i think its pretty good

one more question its probably answered somewhere but ill ask it anyways
what parts would i need to make the 4in chamber?
