I've used black iron to build a (small-bore) gun.

I've been taking it to 150 psi for several years now (probably amounting to several thousand shots), and it hasn't shown any sign of wear.

Umm no. A co2 cetup is much better than wasting money on a 12 volt compressor. Those cheap little toys(yes they are basically toys) will burn out within a few weeks. And also his valve is fine for what he does with his cannon. But wouldn't the use of CO2 in a PVC gun cause the PVC to become brittle?

A friend of mine made something similar to this...he called it the Power Stick.

I would say your working pressure depends on the schrader valve. I've had them blow out at 200 psi (but that's probably because I bought the cheap ones).

I've fired ice rounds from a pneumatic before on several occasions, but never less than a 1" bore. I've fired them from a 1/2 inch bore. My methods for creating these ice bullets certainly weren't the best: I basically just made them in a small pipe and shaped them with my hands afterwards. This as...

As far as the slingshot: NICE!!! I can't see any practicality in it, but it must make a great showpiece.

For my 1/2 inch gun, I attached two fishing sinkers together by a short section of chain. Great for ripping apart electronics at high pressures.
