They are sold on Ebay. You will find two similar models available. The newer one has larger internal air passages and is constructed with serviceable O-Rings instead of custom rubber baffles. 

Identify the new model by the small straight-sided pressure adjusting knob, the taller upper body and the seam where the upper and lower halves are threaded together is closer to the brass ports.

Some identical models are advertised as 60psi regulators. Don't buy a 60psi regulator.

(For those who have been monitoring this page, the "Avenger" cannon had some design limitations and wasn't as hard-hitting as a basic "Fast Gun" cannon. The "Predator" is the newly developed replacement, so named because it loosely resembles that dreadlock-wearing alien we all know and love. Like the Avenger, the Predator will fire at just about any up or down angle but it is capable of reliably single-firing bb's at a much greater velocity, like other conventional cannon designs. This version will fit into the bow or stern of a destroyer. It's receiver may be more visible once installed, but painted grey, it won't detract from the overall appearance of the ship. 

Predator Bow/Stern Cannon (Fits Fletcher and Gearing installed as a bow or stern gun.)

Newly-designed, lightweight, Foster breach, magnetic-receiver, 50-round bb cannon to rain fire down upon the enemy. Designed to fit on the bow or stern of the Fletcher, Sumner & Gearing destroyers. 

Coming soon!

All cannons assembled & test-fired. Include spare O-Rings.

These cannons are available for shipping only within the United States.

Cannon-equipped ships should only to be used following the Safety Rules and guidelines of the International Radio Controlled Warship Combat Club under the rules of a NAMBA-affiliated group.
