Watched the video, and I'm stunned right now.

Is there a chance that you will make and sell a baby like this again sometime?

Can I ask, what sort of valve are you using there to separate the air pressure canisters from the barrel? I'm designing my own gun but it's my first time ever trying to make any sort of pneumatic cannon. Seriously, not even a spud-gun in my younger days! *sigh* So much wasted time...

whats your firing pressure ?
plus the main barrel inner diametre ^_^;

I am making a Steam cannon myself. (little oversized)
but I am using 20 bars on a 60MM barrel (mortar) and a 7MM pipe (6MM BB ball, main barrel)

I was just wondering what Kinds of specs you used ^_^;

By asking this question I as well mean that your design looks ass-kicking and I admire it

:iconmacabre151:
Macabre151 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2010
Thank you very much!

The barrel's ID is 1 3/8".

I shoot her at 60PSI, and that is more than enough to send a ball though a box at 35 feet.

I hope this helps you.

About a week and about three days to paint.

Sounds intense. Did you model this off a show or something? Do is it your own creation?

It all came from my head (as far as I know). Iv been making props for movies and live theater for a long time now, and a Steampunk air cannon has been on my mind for some time.
