Thus, "Complete Plans"... and IMO, direct metered propane injection, stungun, over/under configuration with breech loading, removable control box, etc... seems reasonably "advanced" for a combustion gun made from plumbing parts :) Plus, these plans aren't for the forum patrons - they already know all this stuff - these plans are for the n00bs that are constantly asking common questions. This document pretty well explains how to build the gun, start to finish. That's why they're unique, and why I wrote it up. If you have any comments or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Anyway, the one thing I need to add to the plans is that you shouldn't glue on the fan-side bell reducer. It should be secured with several screws to allow access to the chamber, in case of maintenance needs. I'll try to update the zip file ( http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/download.php?id=2949& ) sometime soon.

I'm planning on building this design with a 10ft golf ball barrel right after the holidays.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Whats the easiest way to get access to the chamber without using 2 or 3 more fittings?

a round be of wood and screws. not safe but easy, but seursly not sure what they are called but it makes the chamber have theads on the back and you put a cap in it only have 2 part. that or a ball valve it would cost lots more if you wanna put a spud thru it tho

and check the date before you post this is 4 years old

A cleanout cap is probably the easiest way to access the chamber, but it makes venting between shots more difficult (as opposed to the ball valve in the design, which makes venting the chamber very easy).

You know this is a several year old thread, right?
