Well, this is my new spudgun… (In fact, it is my first real PVC spudgun after a mini ball-valve pneumatic and a basic ABS combustion)
I decide to do this gun almost one year ago, I spent a few weeks drawing it, and then began the gun in June 2004. I wanted a challenging project, so I decided to work on a hybrid.

First of all. That is a FREAKING clean gun! Nice construction man!
Second. Did you cut some pipe down the middle, and then bondo it to the real chamber? I love the shroud you put on the meter. That is VERY nice woodworking. Right On!

Wow, it is beautiful. It is the best thought out and best looking launcher I have seen.

How did you attach the 2" pipe sections to the side of the chamber?

Cannon of the year barillel. Absolutely stunning.

Tank you for you compliments, I' really glad to see your quick replies.

The 2 2" pipes have been cutted to fit close to the chamber to allow me to first glue them with PVC glue. Then, I have fixed them with epoxy (for the left pipe) and fibreglass resin (for the right pipe). And many wood screws screwed in the two couplings prevent the block of fibreglass resin to take off the chamber because the resin don't glue strongly on PVC.

AMAZING!! You've managed to put together the cleanest, most detailed cannon I've ever seen. Your unbelievable attention to detail amazes me . . . From lights in the box that turn of when it's closed, to an actual propane regulator. Exellent cannon!:D
