Finally finished my under-barrel, contant air, breech loading launcher!!

Still have to get the breech parts anno'ed, but works smooth and fires perfectly!!!











The breech is released with a push of the thumb....

225 psi will send a Nerf 75 yards. I think I'll stick with that. Most local fields require 250 and under with a safety release valve.

real cool! Very fair prices as well! you said what the velocity is but what about the FPS with a nerf? this could be very usefull for tankers. but it has to shoot at a good fps. specially if you want to use a long tank barrel with it.

Are you looking for range or fps? His does about 75 yards as stated on a previous post.

With some testing we've seen that higher fps doesn't mean it gives you longer range. I have a homemade lanucher that fires 160-175 fps and it can out range the same lanucher being set to the field max of 215-230fps by over 30 feet.

Yes, I don't know the fps, but its similar to the Metadyne fps. Range was always my first priority...

a Nerf going 230 fps goes farther than one going 180. there is zero doubt about it. Ive built numerous launchers and launcher based weapons.
VELOCITY = RANGE It is simple mathmatics and science.

anyways what im looking for is something like this launcher that can be adapted to a 5, 6 or 7 ft barrel. for use in my tank and anti tank gun. Using a short barrel is completely out of the question for this role. This design looks perfect for this use.It doesnt look hard to swap in a long barrel at all. the only question is how fast does a nerf go? 75 yards out of a nerf is good if you aim it almost parallel to the ground. if you have to aim it 45 degrees thats something else. From the testing ive done on our PAK 40 anti tank gun the velocity drops about 20 fps when your barrel goes from 5 feet to 7 feet. Soi need something that can get back up to that velocity. the gun does not fire as good with the longer barrel/ lower velocity.

I currently have homemade air cannons that work very well. but if i could get the same performance out of a "Manufactured" launcher then id buy one or more no doubt.but it has to be reliable. the havok launchers look cool but seem to unreliable. And the cost is too high

You are correct. what I meant was that I haven't been MEASURING the FPS, but only the range of the rocket fired at a 20 degree angle (approx).

YYes, you could install a longer barrel, but I don't know if you could put a 7ft barrel. Probably the max would be a 2 ft since the pressure chamber is so small. After the 2ft, the pressure difference wouldn't continue to accelerate the rocket. So the rocket would slow because of drag and friction against the barrel. I'd recommend using a barrel that give you max speed and putting a faux barrel that is at least 2.5" ID to give you the 7ft "barrel" you want.

If you wanted to use a REAL 7ft barrel, increase the volume of your pressure chamber and you will get better performance.

I also believed that before I did my testing with my launcher. It may only be with my lanucher. The only thing that can explain it is that at the higher speed the nerf's nose compress and causes friction that'll slow it down fast or makes the nerf fly wilder making the tail whip all directions.

Haven't tested this on another launcher so like I said it could be just my launcher maybe something with the barrel.

I can see that happening with the nerf compressing. i have been using 2 inch pvc for barrels, which is quite loose so i dont have the compression or much of a friction problem. If you do crank it up too high they do get very squirelly. plus the refs have a hard time tracking them to the target to confirm the hit. so sometimes we give up a little range so everyone can easily see the shot. now when there isnt alot of noise around you can ussually hear the wack against the other tank.


for the price im still interested in one of these even if its just used for a handheld launcher.

Bravo! That was my goal some YEARS ago but discovered the operating pressures required had to be factory components or shop made. You can get only so much of PVC and 150 psi and a short enough barrel to fit on a marker.

I ALMOST went the other way. Put a marker on a bazooka.... Chop off the grip or use it for the front handle of the bazooka and mount that folded Shorty onto it. Decided it would still be too big and bulky to play speedball with.

Short of metal working capabilities being available to me, I had to give up on that goal.

Still, been pondering a version of Fastlearners Burst Disk Launcher that would do 230+ fps out of a 14" barrel.

Just make a cartridge with a built in burst disk that you can just load in, Seal, and open the valve to you markers air supply. Got a little R&D to do on a prototype.

Yes, I had to design mine and have a machine shop build it. It was beyond my machining skills and time.

Good luck with your burst disk launcher. Sounds pretty powerful.
