The Propane Rifle was created by connecting a self-igniting propane torch to a tube that, in turn, has a regular plastic bottle attached to the other end. When someone fires it the torch sends propane and air through the tube, causing a build-up of propane inside the bottle that results in a small explosion happens when the flame reaches this part of the DIY rifle.
