of course put some on and then load some black powder and light it up!

It should fire. Powder up some sulphur from matches and pack it in the bottom of the cannon. Use just enough toilet paper to fit tightly and pack that down on top of the sulphur. Then put you airsoft pellet in and light the fuse . Depending how much sulphur you used and how tight your wadding is it should give off a good report.

Sulphur? If you were talking about match heads, you prob meant armstrongs mixture.....or alternatively black powder??? not sure you're aware of what you are talking about but, hey ho :-)

sulphur is not flammable. you need black powder or something similar.

I know this is a reeeeallly late reply, but it is a .22lr Magnum case. It's about 1cm longer than a normal .22lr case.

woodstockbirdy (author)clader12011-02-14

I mean the 22 cal casing..

$2 at walmart and you can have 50. They even come loaded!

I checked..... I found nothing

ilpug (author)woodstockbirdy2011-03-19

you could easily replace the bullet casing with some small pieces of metal conduit.

woodstockbirdy (author)ilpug2011-06-22

Ill try that

olu1 (author)2011-04-05
