i made one but i reccomend NOT using PVC. It deteriots very fast when it gets shot and can break/explode very easy. i reccomend using ABS piping, its like pvc just much thicker,stronger and is black. I use hairspray as a fuel and it works the best out of everything ive tried and i generally use potatoes but apples, oranges or anything round works quite fine. For Ignitor i used the sparker out of a barbecue lighter and superglued and calked it into the chamber so the button is sticking out and the wire is in the chamber. i then screwed two screws into the chamber leaving a small gap between the points of eachother so the tips were almost touching. i then attached the sparker wire to one screw and when i pressed the button it made a spark between the two screws. and voile you have a spud gun

that was pretty much everything.
i got 2 spud guns right now, one that is cloapseable actually. use a 4 inch chamber and 2 inch barrel and you will be shooting 400-500 feet. chamber should be about 18 inches long.

ABS? That is the worst possible thing to use besides glass! Maybe if you use a commercial grade, 1/2" thick sidewalls but other than that, abs is terrible. It can't even compare to pvc in psi it can withstand.
alright so you guys dont really no wut u r doin when it comes to a spud gun. i have had one for 2 years plus. i made it from PVC and nothin is wrong with it. i have a 4 foot barrel that has a diameter of 2 inches. sharpen the tip so u can put the potato in better. then put a screw at the end of the 2in diameter barel so the potato stops. then have a chamber of 2 feet long 4 inch diameter. i have a connector from the 2inch diameter to the 4inch diameter. then get a screw cap at the end. use a barbeque starter to lite the shit. use ether for spray. it works the best. dont put too much though. it floods and doesnt fire. just message me if u want pics though.
