Good 'ible. I must be a visual person because I struggle to understand how the buna ring gets held in place and where it gets held in place, what keeps it in place with respect to either the piston or body -- not sure which is correct. I'm obviously confused. Could you add more pictures showing where the seal goes, and show which pieces hold it in place to clear up my confusion? Thanks

Anyone know how to make a Waterzooka that automatically refills from a gun-mounted water tank?

It would be funny if you went kayaking and concealed a waterzooka in your paddle and surprisingly shot another guy and quickly kayaked away. LOL!!!
Many years ago I went whitewater rafting with my Boy Scout troop.

A bunch of us had these for the calm sections...
I have had a rather large squirt gun when kayaking at some lake there was a couple of fishermen i squirted them when ever they caught a fish so they dropped it they got so pissed :D
i would totaly do that

Gonna try this out tonight. Have a float trip coming up, so why not be awesome with something simple. Love the simplistic design.
Nice design. If you have a pool two of these are a must. I will be making them shortly. 4 stars Meat spin FTW.
