Finally got around to working on my compact .357 cannon.

Still need to fit the magnet, install magazine, make the air chamber larger, frame it out and paint her up.

Will look quite different once finished. 8)

The trigger is fantastic, nice and crisp...thanks F1. :wink:

The co2 tank comfortably holds 950-1000psi and no leaks anywhere.

I have a small 3000psi tank to use but dont have any fittings around for it atm. :roll:

1/4 QEV
Palmers Pursuit Fatty Reg.0-350psi
Co2 tank


Overall length is 475mm.

Barrel pictured is only 210mm.
2nd barrel 330mm
3rd barrel-550mm

Wont do a chrono until i have a larger air chamber.

Nice and compact, well put together! I'm guessing it will take 3/8" steel ball bearings, will you be making a magazine for it?

Nice little launcher, I like it. I picked up a Benjamin Bulldog not too long ago, its a .357" PCP air rifle, and I'll bet the pellets/bullets would work great in your gun, you can get all different sorts of rounds for it (round nose pellet, round ball, hollow points, etc.). Check Amazon for .357 pellets, they're around $20 for 100, you wont be dissapointed.

Or you could get a Benjamin bulldog... ;)
900 FPS 81 grain pellets do work lol

Sweet, big bores seem to be gaining in popularity of late.

Seems to be so, they are getting pretty affordable now, more than they used to be anyways. The 4500 psi compressor I got to charge the fill scuba tank was only 320$, and I think all of us know how useful that could be for some fun projects. If anyone is interested in more info about the compressor do a google search for "Yong Heng 300 bar compressor". I know you'd dig this thing JSR, though you may need a scuba tank with a 100-500 Psi regulator for a lot of what you build. No more shock pumps! lol

Thanks very much Spudinator. :)

I would LOVE a Bulldog, was actually checking it out the other day they look fantastic.

Im very tempted to buy one.
I have a rifled crosman barrel for a .22 cal project i would love to get around to soon also. :)

Ive been away for awhile and haven't had time to get back to finishing this one. :roll:
