Yep I got the idea about the oxygen instead of air I dont really want to invest that much more into it anymore... oxygen tank- +-$80 regulator- $50 hoses and all the fittings- $50 $180 not worth it to me... I think the biggest upgrade Ill do is make the barrel longer. HGDT says it needs to be 33ft l...

Thanks guys!

I know it does have potential to be better but for right now thats what it is. My firend may be giving me a full size SCUBA tank soon, so maybe that will make me want to build a bigger one! :twisted:

Aluminum cans might be good I tried that the other day to pressure test the chamber
