Double Barrel (shotgun) Combustion spudgun

Unread postAuthor: SnowFlox » Mon Jun 25, 2007 4:05 pm

Ive done my little spudgun last week using a 16mm tube barrel from PVC.

Today i was thinking for my next spudgun.
And yes !

:idea:

A Double Barrel shotgun !!

when i was home directly photoshopped my idea !

The barrel is a 19mm from electric tube PVC.
Under the barrel there is a 16mm Tube with a small 19mm tube over it,
connected to the 19mm barrel. So the barrel can slide into the combustion chamber's 19mm connection piece.

Using a small weller butane refill can for fuel.

And a BBQ ignition to shoot.

Only need something to let fresh air in when i need to reload it.

But this is a basic idea :)

shopping like a lady !!

Im going to test how much power etc.. the double barrel will have.
Just starting with one gun.

this time bought a much bigger pieces then my first one.

my first gun had a chamber like 50 cm3

And this one has a chamber like 175 cm3 ( 0,175Liter) .

so 3.5 times the power i hope so :)

and the barrel is bigger. old gun has 16mm this one has a 19mm.

This is basicly the gun.

Image

Drilled a 19mm hole for the tube in an end cap.

Image

Here im going to glue the tube in the end cap inside it self.
Just cut the pipe half away .

Image

Now i am going to find other parts to measure the amount of fuel.

:)
