I built this cannon on commission for one of my brother's friends. He wanted a cannon with all the fixin's, and he got it!

It has a ~13" long chamber (1' of clear 4", plus fitting room), and a 6' long barrel. Onboard propane, simple LED chamber fan, 3" cam lock assembly (bored out by lathe), and a quick vent 2" ball valve (also lathed and epoxied like a madman) complete the package. Top it off with an old shoulder strap I had sitting around, and it's a pretty nice cannon for those hot summer nights up in the Tennessee hills.
Pretty much the only addition I could've made would be a stungun ignition, but the client declined. Oh well!
