Default Pneumatic rifle?

Google search for images for "pneumatic rifle" shows various weapons. If this forum is the place for people's CGI images of ideas for weapons which do not exist in the real world, here is a CGI image of a an idea for a possible design for a pneumatic rifle that I thought of. (I am in Britain and you likely know what gun control is like here.) I am unlikely to be in a position to have a real gun, so I must limit myself to CGI art.


The cylinder is a scuba diver's lifejacket / stab-jacket inflation cylinder.
Buoyancy compensator (diving) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The magazine only need contain the projectiles, not the explosive parts of cartridges, as the power is compressed air.

Man firing it:-

By definition it is not a firearm, the rendering is a start...now build one.

I will have to say the idea is interesting. But to make it a useable weapon.... I don't know.

Attach the gun via a hose to a backpack SCUBA tank. Makes the gun a little lighter and able to operate longer between recharge.

Potato Cannon is the first thing that came to mind when I seen this.

Those will be banned soon for harming potatos.

It would likely have a knob to turn to choose how much air from the cylinder to use for each shot, to choose firing power.

It shoots metal projectiles (cast lead or cut from a length of iron or steel rod), not potato.

Of the space inside the cylindrical body, the back end is for the mechanism and the rest is to fit the magazine in.
