I was trying to finish this little project and I managed to do it
It is a combustion gun that works with ethyl alcohol. It has a double combustion chamber system, to increase a little the firing pressure, because the caliber is very small. I calculate that energy increases approximately 30% - 40%, since with a single combustion chamber the firing is very smooth.
Use a small air pump, to clean the two chambers after each shot, and to spray the alcohol finely inside the two chambers. The amount is regulated approximately, with the amount of pumping, about 4 normally. The ignition is electronic multi spark, of those used in gas stoves.
It has a capacity for 8 steel ammunition, and a manual loading system. The ammunition is loaded after loading the fuel inside the chamber.
It is built in light wood and the chambers are made of aluminum coated with a thin layer of fiberglass. In the future I will upload a video.
The shots are roughly even, acceptable, and the accuracy equally acceptable at 10 meters. It is very fun to shoot, it makes almost no noise, and having everything incorporated you can walk through the green of my property playing a little, with nothing but the gun and the complete magazine, and the ammunition in your pocket. I hope you like it. Regards!!
Boom! The classic potato gun harnesses the combustion of flammable vapor. Show us your combustion spud gun and discuss fuels, ratios, safety, ignition systems, tools, and more.

nice build, what do you mean by a "double combustion chamber system"

There is the basic explanation of the principle of double combustion chamber. There is a scientific article on this subject:

Ideas don't make holes. The weapons yes!
