Pneumatic Rifle Air Cannon Launcher - P.A.C. 1
This is an archive file from a website that closed down of the first P.A.C. pressurized air cannon made (the P.A.C. 1).
How the P.A.C. 1 and following editions came about
When I was about twelve years old, my friend and I wanted to construct are own homemade paintball guns. This small pneumatic rifle was the result. The inexpensive launcher actually worked quite well.
Theory: By pumping air into the tank and letting all the air out at once it produces enough pressure to shoot the paintball. This small cannon uses a supersoaker tank as a chamber. The hand pump attached is used to pump up the chamber.
How to fire: Use the small hand pump on the side of the "air chamber" and pump it about 10-15 times. Muzzle load the ammunition (paintball, mothball, wooden ball, etc.), flip the "ball valve" and it will fire the ammunition at a very high speed.
The construction is fairly straight forward as pictured here.
This is enough information for most handymen to build the P.A.C. 1 air cannon on your own and this is all the information that is available on it since the original website is now shut down.
