The Attractive Fireman
Alternative Launcher Plans?
I've had a thought... Instead of making the classic PVC launcher with PVC, various pipes, ball valve, and a 12 gram changer. I've had this idea...
It's practically the same thing, but adding another small section of pipe, another ball valve, and instead of 12 grams, using a CO2 tank. Turn the tank on, open the ball valve #1, close ball valve #1, fire the launcher (by opening ball valve #2), load your ammo, close ball valve #2, open ball valve #1, etc etc. See what I'm doing? Instead of blowing through 1 whole 12 gram to fire it one time, use a tank and trap X amount of air in the pipes to fire the launcher. See what I'm saying? Would something like this work? If I've confused you, please let me know.

Yep, it's been done. Might be easier to use a remote and use the on/off on the remote to fill the laincher.

Wouldn't the fill rate be significantly more? As in, you use the same size chamber to expand the co2, you are looking at a constant 700-800 psi compared to 12 grams filling out and reducing pressure?
also, could someone give me some specs on launchers, IE chamber volumes, barrel length, ammo info and anything else? Or a link to said info?
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
