    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.

    You should post instructions

    dont fire that !
    espesaly with air rifle pellets its brass and will explode in your face

    looks kinda weird but i guess you should. does it even fire?

    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.

    theres no such thing as a .22Lrmagnum. did you mean .22 magnum

    it looks like a magnum!!
    im makin one

    This is cool! Does anyone think I should post an instructable on how I made my mini cannon that shoots airsoft BB's?

    its not really an INSTRUCTable without INSTRUCTions. do instructions,man

    i build one out of a 22.short casing and superglued it to a piece of wood i carved out into a base :D

    Put in a few steps.....it'll make it interesting.

    thats not the bottom of one of those bendable light things is it?
    IE something like this?
