    I contacted TT today and they said it SHOULD power it. The only word of caution they stated was to make sure that there is not rust and that it runs smoothly or else it will drain the batter faster.

    Thank you, I will try it, (hopefully this week end) and post my results. I can get a POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR at a junkyard for $15.00

    That's a good price and it's cheaper than ebay. I used one similar on my pvc winger.

    It would be interesting in seeing a pic of that if you have one.

    I have one of those launchers also, I bought mine as a unit 30 years ago. it is 9 shot 22 cal revolver with a stainless launcher barrel. The company I bought it from HAS BEEN LONG GONE for years. Mine still works great. Good for singles and multiples, I have used up to a purple load 7 in my unit, but prefer yellow 4. it makes the dogs get fired up for retrieving and makes them marking machines. the draw back is that it enciurages the dog to look at the launcher instead of looking out in the field for a gun station. when switching to gun stations my dog missed a lot of marks for this reason, you have to have calm throwers. I was thinking of reproducing the launcher end but with all the remote stuff available I dont know if there would be interest in it, what i like about it I can stop in a field a throw 100 yd marks for my dog with very little set up time. i will try to get a picture of it,
