X Products X1 Stand Alone Drink Can and Golf Ball Launcher

 

X-Products-X1-Stand-Alone-Launcher-1-660

Many of you are probably familiar with the X Products Can Cannon, an AR-15 upper receiver assembly that allows launching muzzle-loaded beverage cans using blank cartridges. At SHOT Show 2020, the company introduced the FORE golf ball launching adapter for the Can Cannon. The latest addition to this product line is the X1 Stand Alone Launcher. Let’s take a closer look.

As its name implies, the X Products X1 Stand Alone Launcher does not require any additional parts to work. It’s like a giant break-action single-shot obrez or lupara. According to the description seen on the company’s website, this launcher is 3D printed and machined. Like the Can Cannon, the X1 Stand Alone Launcher also utilizes blank cartridges for propelling the projectiles. It is capable of launching soda cans and presumably other projectiles designed by X Products for the Can Cannon (grappling hookfishing spearlauncher ballslauncher cups, etc.). It also has a golf ball launching adapter that can be threaded into the larger drink can barrel as shown in the picture below.

The MSRP of the X Products X1 Stand Alone Launcher is $399.99. Right now you can reserve one with a $20 deposit. The X1 Stand Alone Launcher is legally not a firearm and it should be possible to deliver it to your doorstep without any paperwork although the company’s website says that “delivery is slated for late 2021, pending ATF approval“… fingers crossed.

I couldn't find any indication of the speed or force, at which it launches the soda cans. It just says the cans can be sent as far as 105 yards. I have to wonder what would happen, if someone was hit, center mass, with one of these propelled soda cans.

NYS is probably drafting legislation as we speak to ban them.

looks good to launch wires up into trees for ham radio antennas ( attach wire to shot object )
