    Do a search and dig around following links for 'spud gun'.
    You should find lots of info/plans on them.

      I've made a few spud guns out of PVC, but I don't have any pics. They're actually pretty simple to make, and require the following materials:

      -(1) 3" end cap clean out plug
      -(1) piece 3" sch40 pipe 18-20" long
      -(1) 3"x2" reducer (standard reducer, not a bushing type)
      -(1) piece 2" sch40 pipe 36-40" long
      -(1) lantern lighter (finger unit that you rotate to light lanterns)
      -(1) PVC cement

      You can get the pipe, fittings, and glue for less than $15. The lantern lighters can be purchased in the camping section of Wal Mart for around $3.

      Do a search, and you should be able to find plans. I use deodorant rather than hairspray, as dodorant leaves a more watery residue after combustion (hairspray is more sticky).

        I've got plans coming out my rear end for potato guns! I've even got a fully automatic belt fed spud gun but those plans are not to be shared (as far as I know I'm the only one to succesfuly complete a fully automatic spud gun). Try http://www.spudtech.com/

        It's the best info site you'l find on the subject and I'm thinking of ordering some rifled barrels from him.

            You could go with a slightly overisized barrel and use some sort of wadding if you can't find a pipe that has a snug enough fit.

              I originaly made it out of PVC but it wasn't strong enough to deal with the cycling of the action so now I'm having one machined out of aluminium.
