The regulator that I ordered 3 weeks ago, fiber wraping the expansion chamber, make the breach cut, and painting.

I have been very busy, with Christmas here and shoping, and college exams.

But now that im on my break I will finish the gun ASAP.
I still have to wait for the regulator the get here:-(

But this gun is looking realy cool so far. I wanted it to be break barrel loading but the co2 tank is in the way for that type of loading. So the cannon is pump action loading:

Slid the breach cover forward, drop shell in the breach hole, slid the breach cover back. Simple as that!!! I am hoping to make a "magizine" for the gun so you can carry like 3-5 shells maybe even more.

But for now its single shot manual loading. This cannon was based on several different grenade launcher:

The loadin is from this cannon.

The original m-79 from Vietnam.

Well the cannon is very near to being finished. But I don't think im going to make my (self set) dead line:-(

So just post any question you may have, and just watch for THE coolest pneumatic powered devices on the face of the Eath!!!
