It's been about 10 days since you've last posted. It's probably safe to assume that you have updates by what you've said. Post them here when you have the time. I know I'm interested in seeing this thing in action!

He completed the project from what I know. I emailed him about it a few months ago. He said he'd post something but he never got around to it. I'll send another email.

Ok sorry for being such a procrastinator, by the end of the project in May, I was logging 18hr days for a week straight. 8 hours in the machine shop and 10 hours writing the report. When all was said and done the last thing I wanted to do was write more.

But I said I would and the project was completed (mostly) and a test firing was done (once) and it worked really well... Well too well. One of the flare fitting blew at about 80% power and sent one of my friends flying and gave him a rather large bruise. The part has been fixed but I just haven't had the time to really giver a good full distance test.

Here's a picture of the completed gun


A closer look at the trigger system


And a look at the front of the gun without the barrel (barrel was broken during transport need to rethread with M9 metric die


A picture of the parts layed out precluding final assembly, note the size of the spring and the hydraulic yellow seals that are rated to 5000psi


A picture of the all hand make handles, with extra material removed to try and cut down the weight

'tis a beautifully crafted water blaster! The machines metal parts and uber-sized spring are purely awe-inspiring. Of course, now I'd like to see some shot pics.

Good job on the build and thanks for sharing the pics both of the completed as well as some of the internal shots of this blaster!

Almost certainly the best-crafted homemade I've seen, and better made than a lot of stock guns I daresay.
I guess this is what happens when someone makes their engineering project a water gun.
I'm guessing it's mostly aluminium, but even so, I doubt it's going to be light. What is the empty weight, and the capacity?

I want to make something like this too :-) :-)

I hope the indexes of this gun are similarly good as well as his original appearance.
