Picture of How to...build a spudgun ignition
This is how i made my -sort of- remote controllable spudgun ignition

list of stuff to buy before you start on this project with a high awesomeness level:
piezo bbq-lighter
spark plug
wire
steel wire

tools: a wire stripper
          tape ( yes , tape is a tool)
          hands ( don't lose 'em , they might just come in handy)

Step 1: Drilling

Picture of drilling
this is the part where you take out your drill , attach a drill bit the size of the threaded part of the spark plug.
Drill a hole in a strong , robust part of the combustion chamber

Fun fact: A 3 pack of lighters will yield 3 igniters. Each igniter will last quite a while, many mini spud guns have non replaceable igniters. So, using a sparker from a lighter is a good idea.

Your English isn't bad. I read plenty of things written by native speakers, man, and you'd have to be pretty awful to not be up to par.

Great project.

the spark plug is kind of...useless if you're using a BBQ ignitor....all you need are two nails or pins or anything metal that are close enough to allow a spark to jump the gap when you push the ignitor
yeah that's true , o no , wait , what is a sparkplug again
indeed , 2 metal pins close together , it even has extra isolation and threaded wire , so you can jam it in there real tight , instead of hot-glueing your nails
nice comeback
use a ignition coil
how did the gun itself work out?
hmmm, well , you can see that there is only a small (threaded)endcap on the gun.
I tested it with a bigger endcap , but the gun was so powerful that it blew the cap off and rammed it into my stomach :P
it's pretty powerful , because , when i shot it against a 3 inch thick wooden board ( point blanc) it shot right trough :)

shot something through a 3" thick piece of wood?

pics or it didn't happen.....you would need a LOT of pressure to do that
sorry , stupid metric system , 3 cm was the correct thickness
ahhhh, that would make a bit more sense
the ammo i used : 3 aa batteries , siliconed together in a perfect - barrel shape
also added a steel pin on top :P
that's why it shot trough
ps : the chamber is 50 cm long and the barrel 1meter long
