The spark ignites the fuel inside the chamber. The fuel being axe or hairspray or some other flammable gas. The spark ignites it and then the force of the explosion launches the dart. yes its not practical but its fun
Is it me, or does that sound like a moderate fire hazard?
I like the idea, good range for a small gun.
No it's not. Bolty made one, and he had no problems. Just like using actual firearms aren't a fire hazard. Just like driving a gasoline car isn't a fire hazard. What's to catch fire? The melting point of PVC is 212 °C. No way small semi-controlled explosion will burn the gun. I have used an angle grinder to purposely melt the PVC, and it won't catch fire. There is not enough energy to create a combustion reaction, and PVC would burn very poorly if it did catch fire.
Thanks for explaining that bit of info so I didn't have to. While bolt also made a combustion gun without realizing it he created a hybrid combustion gun meaning that while normal combustion the fuel isn't kept under pressure where as a hybrids fuel is slightly pressurized. This increases the danger alot and also improves ranges. I maybe making a prototype hybrid pistol but all testing will be done in a safe way. I may go on with that project as I already have all the parts but I have been putting it off for a while so wait for a bit and I may get around to it.

That's it. I'm done. I'm sorry there are breasts on the Internet.
