Quick update on the my CO2 canister launcher. The pump action that is used for cycling the falling block breach is pretty much done!
There have been a few projects online that use 12g CO2 canisters as projectiles, but very few that use them as the propellant as well. The new design with shear of the canister end, allowing a fast release of the compressed CO2, launching it out of the barrel, with a lever action styled reloading system with a falling block styled breach.

It been really hot in California and my sandals (Flip Flops) have just about given up the ghost. I'm making some new DIY ones out of a salvaged anti-fatigue mat, an adhesive traction pad, and some leather remnants. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVl0r6xsY5I

the machine is much more powerful than needed, we had to turn the pressure down to about 125psi!  it was designed for 1"sq and 3/4" sq aluminum tubing with .090" wall (1" is what you see in the video).  it should handle steel with 1/8" wall.  since it is a dedicated machine, the radius is fixed.
