Finally......After many months of collecting dust in my shop, the "Mega-Launcher" has actually been taken out and tested. And HOLY S**T does it ever pack a whollop!!!!! Using 20 and 24 oz. plastic soda bottles as the primary "ammunition", this thing takes the concept of "obnoxious toy" to a whole new level.
- Twin 6" x 36" sch 40 chambers. (2035 cu. in.)
- Dual Supah-Valves.
- 8' long, 3" dia. sch 80 barrel.
- Ported muzzle break.
- Breech loadable.
- 9' 6" overall length.
- 70 lbs. total weight.
- Massive recoil!!
- Primary "ammo" -- 20 and 24 oz. plastic soda bottles.
- Muzzle velosity -- Forgot to bring my chrono along....sorry.
While the total range with a full 20 oz. soda bottle is not overly impressive, (only about 300 - 400 yards @ 15 deg. of elevation) it is devistatingly powerful at closer ranges.
Mega-Launcher testing videos:
- Video 1 (from behind the launcher)
- Video 2 (demonstrates the amount of recoil)
- Video 3 (you can see the bottle briefly -- note the pieces of label floating in the air)
- Video 4 (3/4" plywood @ 60 feet)
- Video 5 (camera mounted to the barrel)
- Video 6 (from the side of the target)
- Video 7 (to the side and down range -- very impressive)
- Video 8 (down range -- note the bottle flying towards the camera)
Check out the pics below. The last several pics are freeze-frame's taken from the video footage.
