Yeah I got that, I was just saying the design is almost identical to several pneumatic potato cannons. Which there are some very detailed plans on the Internet if you search for them. You could easily find them, and scale them down to whatever caliber you want to shoot.

Here's another question, can y'all get reloading supplies over there? If you can, I'd make one with a rifle barrel and order bullets in that caliber. Just the bullet, not entire rounds of ammunition.

Maxx, Holy Shit! That was my first thought... of course ours were big enough to strap to a topless jeep and looked more like a recoiless rifle...

Thanks.

Cabela's: Benjamin Rogue .357 ePCP Air Rifle

In the Benjamin Rogue, the gas cylinder seems to be kept small enough to hide it in the mechanism to make the rifle look reasonably like an ordinary rifle for the sake of styling. What if the maker ignores styling and puts a visible large gas cylinder on top so it can store more power, even if it makes the gun look industrial?

I suppose it is a bit like trucks/lorries: British makers usually hide the exhaust system, or used to; USA makers make a display feature of the exhaust system.

One sort of real gun that looks industrial is the M3 submachine gun

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3_submachine_gun

which is often called the "grease gun" because it looks somewhat like a grease gun.

I am truly sorry Anthony. I am sorry you guys in the UK do not have the rich history such as ours here in the United States of Guns, er, I mean America. I really mean that. My children have no idea what it is like to live in a home, let a lone a country, where they are not allowed to own and shoot guns. I hope one day you can bring a "gun ownership" revolution to your life and home...
