Correct, The doom melon still needs some work...... ..........done at 300psi by a 10mm lead ball :D Nice shots. Good thing the starving children of the world don't have the internet, they'd be very unhappy to see what we do with our food surplus Rolling Eyes I think I found my new signature :D

We were shooting at about 5:30pm to 7pm so there was no wind or waves or nothing, flat calm surface to skip lead shot off of :) I could see and hear the shots landing around 300 meters as well (I was difficult but have good eye sight and excellent hearing). I'll add a picture of the lake for further...

I was thinking about making a breech for it and adding a barrel support as well because I want to mount it to a canoe (possibly a bad idea) :D a detent would solve the issue of the pb shot rolling out the barrel as well. We'll see when and if i get my epoxy back weather or not theres enough left to ...

No Spare Parts; BV launcher

This is my throw back BV launcher, i have had the desire to put holes in things. Being unsatisfied with the performance of my previous launchers I gathered my spare parts and threw together a launcher with the plan of attack being simple but effective. here she is, No Spare Parts (because I like the...

Thanks BTB, I also shot a dime with a lead ball at 160psi So I guess your short 10 cents :D All shots were taken at 160psi, I do have a shock pump but the 1L chamber is a pain to pump up. I will take some shots at 250-300psi when I get a chance. Also we fired a 10mm lead ball into a tree where it wi...

My panzerschreck (not mine anymore cause I sold it) just about does that with chinese oranges :) But cavitating a watermelon isn't half bad for a marble caliber ball valve gun.

POOF. A great spirit appears in a puff of smoke. I grant the 3 searches.... :D give Selador a break, he's frustrated and fed up but at least he showed some initiative by attempting to rectify the problem. I guess because the search is terrible unless used URL PROPERLY he didn't bother to search abou...

I pretty much know the trigger wont work effectivly so some redesigning is in order. in order to solve the timing issue a burst disk at the begining of each barrel might work but it would be a pain to set up. perhalps making very tight detents? or restricting the flow into each barrel in combo with ...

Im glad you enjoyed the island; I am about 3 hours north of Victoria, in Comox, and it's nothing short of amazing. Everybody on the island is pretty relaxed (took my panzerschreck to the beach). I like it a little bit more than the main land (used to live outside of Vancouver). I'm really hoping im ...

I don't play airsoft but i figured this would be fun to build (if it were to work, i know the firing mech needs to be reworked) If you don't see how it works or what I intend this device to do this series of events might help 1. pin is pulled via tripwire 2. piston travels downwards thus, pushing ag...

unfortunatly im not big on real "fire arms" (never shot a real gun, nor have i been around when they were in use). Basically i dont have shotgun shells or anything of that sort. I'll probably just sabot it musket style So I'll save the Al barrel for when i get access to a shop (going to get my weldi...

3/4" SDR or sch 40?
heres what ive got so far. I had already had most of this figured out before i posted (i wanted a "second" opinion). Also forgive the use of my 3.2 megapixel cell phone camera, i didnt feel like pulling out my olympus pen.
