The gun
Posted Image
The shell is basicly a model magic shell as shown and the top half of a bottle in the barrel behind the shell to catch the air better and funnel the air into the middle of the shell to make it fly straighter.
This is a very effective cannon and I have made a duct tape sling to carry the cannon easier

As is seen the cannon is primed via a tire stem and ranges are nitefinder ranges flat at 60 psi. This can knock down an unstable fort and leaves bruises.

In any nerf war I have been to, the main important features of a gun are:

mobility
ROF
range
avalibility of ammunition

You have to have a bit of all of these things, which is why people don't use hidden shots in wars much.

Your creation seems to be lacking in certain areas. You may wish to change your design before you debut at a war.

This gun was built for a game mode in which several people are in a cardboard fort and about twice as many are sieging it.

I carry my 2k turreted sgsl along with this weapon to make up for faults 1 2 and 3.

I would be careful. The reducer fitting you have between your valve and tank is not pressure rated. Even taking it to 60psi is pressing your luck.

Is it not just a normal reducer? I thought those were rated...

Even if it is, you should try to have pressure on as few joints as possible. I always put my valves as close to the tank as possible so that most of the area that has pressure on it is regular PVC piping.

EDIT: Could you please resize the top picture?

Based on what you said about knocking down forts, I'm going to assume that this a grenade-launcher type weapon. I know you said this gun is used more as a stationary weapon, but maybe you can make a smaller one for integration into another gun. What are the ranges on this weapon and how is the ball valve working for you?

A LS with an underslung slug-launcher would be pretty cool...just a thought.

I have made designs for a semi auto version.
