I was inspired by the German Panzerfaust in this design, its basically a rigid paper tube spigot where I can fit and fire an AXE sprayed 500ml bottle with the help of a pizeo bbq igniter connected to a pair of 18 gauge household wires.

The ignition prong bent from the 18 gauge copper wire.

The connectors at the back end of the spigot tube.

The range isn't that good, at 45 degrees firing angle, it lobes the bottle about 50 feet distance :/. Maybe a 2L bottle will get more distance?

Cool, what kind of range are you getting, also it would look better if you painted it

Spigot designs are quite inefficient, it's the opposite of a saboted projectile, but this is ghettoness incarnate so who cares :)
