The Can Cannon is a patent pending launching device for soda cans and other heavy, thin walled objects. A proprietary gas ported barrel and pressure tube reduce the exposure to high pressure gasses which could destroy relatively delicate projectiles. The Can Cannon is currently configured for launching full, un-opened 12oz soda cans. When used with standard mil spec blanks and fired at an optimum angle it can reach an average distance of 105 yards!*

Why launch soda cans instead of drinking them?* Because you can!* Projectile options are only limited by your creativity and local laws.* Our BATFE approved design is not considered a Destructive Device or firearm.* Each unit is sold as an assembled upper with receiver, headspaced and mounted ported barrel, and pressure tube.* The system is compatible with any AR-15 mil standard bolt and most piston bolts.* Enjoy our*no-hassle lifetime warranty.

We are currently designing the following accessories for this product:Grappling Hook (In Pre-Production)Dog Training Toys For Duck Hunting and RetrievalT Shirt Launching (probably an easy one)Lawn Darts*Harpoon

Check out Hickok 45 on youtube.com. When you think about it cans of soda from wally world make pretty good targets for a cheap price.
 
If this were half the price, I'd already have one

There's another active thread on this, but honestly there is better info here than in the [thread=281646]dupe[/thread].

was gonna say what a waste of beer and soda...but I don't drink either haha thing looks pretty fun
 
wasnt there anouther dupe from a while back? Some how or anouther I saw this thing months ago and almost bought one. Most of my time online is spent in here so I figured it was posted here or on FB
 
Btw, finally bit the bullet and picking one up. Current back long says 5 to 6 weeks for shipping. Now to figure out where I can get enough room to use it...

Check with The Armory in Woburn, I know they carry these and may have one in stock.
 
Anyone making a soda can sized air-burst projectile yet?
I'm thinking HE/Phosphorus/Ball bearing...

To late, credit card already charged direct from xproducts.

After I get it, ill need to figure outlet what kind of new projectiles I can make. I have friend who does commercial fishing nets, see if he can figure out how big of one we can deploy successfully.

After watching some other videos, it seems there isn't much force behind the can. The only way to get distance is to lob it in the air. Seems like it would get boring very quickly.

When I find a place I can let it range out, I plan on checking out what angles will give you what range morter style.... could be fun....

The Can Cannon already has hefty recoil, imagine the force required to lanch a 5,678 grain soda can 100 yards on a level trajectory?

Also, Aluminum cans don't have much structural integrity, I'm surprised they handle the force involved in launching them from the Can Cannon, I expect to see a lot of "Blooper" videos, especially as people try out various brands of blanks.

I use Juice Bottle rounds that I fire out of my M2 60mm replica mortar. There is a lifting charge and a detonating charge, inside is loaded with baking soda for a salute. Gooogle juice bottle round, it will give you ideas.

I've shot full soda cans from air cannons. Sealed soda cans start to rupture at 160 psi. I then started to fill up empty ones with sand. At 190 psi I shot one from a ten foot barrel a quarter mile. (I use regulated CO2 and can go as high as 800psi, so I am limited to burst pressure of the materials of the build.)

Anyone wanting to build a soda can (or tennis ball) launcher 2.75 (2-3/4s) tail pipe has inside diameter of 2.625 (2-5/8ths) which is perfect for tennis balls or soda/beer cans. It is sold in 10 foot lengths at any auto parts store.
