Re: How do you get consistent performance out of a "cheap" cannon?

CHEAP, UGLY AND FUNCTIONAL! :) There is a caveat in that "pretty is as pretty does", so when something is functional, there is a certain beauty in it regardless of its aesthetic attributes. If you're right. There is an aesthetic of the function, which is independent of the aesthetic itself, (easier...

Re: Hybrid pumped weapon project

Oh yeah !! it's the same... Keep in mind that your post you name here is my bible on this. I not only remember it, I have it complete in a word, on my pc and on a DVD... It is exactly the same as what you made, I only made it in the form of a weapon to be able to shoot and aim, with the air pump inc...

Re: Hybrid pumped weapon project

I can pierce 0,7 mm sheet steel That's quite impressive for lead pellets to be honest. Have you tried with more than two layers of foil? No, I'm just using the gun with two rupture discs. Surely you can break three, with a little more precompression load, I estimate with 10 - 11X. At present it is ...

Re: Great video testing spud gun failure/safety (ThebackyardScientist)

Watching a piece of 3" PVC hold until 1000psi+ makes me wonder what it would take to cause my aluminum cannon to burst. I'm starting to think 3.5X combustions just might not have the energy to cause that thing to come apart. Possibly it will never be destroyed, if you do not abuse the pressure in t...

Re: Hybrid pumped weapon project

The "cartridges" that includes the rupture disk, seal o'ring and the pellet is as in the drawing. In case of planning a repeating or semi-automatic weapon, with an ammunition magazine, it is necessary to build many.

Re: Hybrid pumped weapon project

Adapting this weapon to shoot with rupture disk. It gave me more power and regularity in the shots. I love plain old bursting records... I am using aluminized paper. I'm using two layers, which work fine for 9X of precompression that the hybrid has. The face that is made of paper itself is faced and...

Re: How do you get consistent performance out of a "cheap" cannon?

The "lost gas" method is what I use for my air pump guns and it works perfectly fine. Yes, it is true that it wastes a little gas but it makes everything more practical and faster to refuel. The trade-in is a practical thing for a little more butane in the process. Without hesitation, I accept the "...

Check out his channel on youtube because it is interesting to see his concepts and techniques for simple, semi-automatic and fully automatic noise cannons.

Re: Bottle Launcher "Mad Hilda XXL

I knew this, and I find it very interesting. I once tried a small "double combustion chamber" pistol that actually shot with more energy. It was a combustion weapon (not hybrid). I imagine that the space between the two cans is the second chamber and the PET bottle is the first. It obviously has mor...

Re: Benjamin Model 30/30 CO2 Carbine Repeater "Hot Shot"

I have always considered that around here we are designers of homemade weapons and not inventors. Any old idea can be adapted, perfected and everything is functional to our design. Probably the old idea used by those who marketed this weapon is even older... and anonymous author. Builders have our t...

Re: Benjamin Model 30/30 CO2 Carbine Repeater "Hot Shot"

The system of this rifle is very creative. I like the idea because it comes out of the conceptual "box" and is repeated all the time. There is always a different way to do the same with its pros and cons for sure. Nice acquisition! :) Adapting it to pcp would improve it substantially, and it will in...
