slow open valve? actually the valve should be a lot faster then most piston air guns, the only problem would be the dead space, but if made well i dont think it would be much of a problem

You don't need the o-rings in front of the bb, you bolt will push the bb through it, if you want it to act as a detente, you will need another one to seal the bolt/barrel section if not air will leak from there(it will any way without a o-ring there, but with a detente you lose more). As there is t...

Did you use a belt grinder on this? no i just used an angle grinder and a file, but i think a belt grinder would have made it a lot easier I don't know. It looks great, the craftsmanship is amazing on the handle too - but somehow it doesn't feel right . I would have gone for the lanyard handle. Jus...

cheers guys im not sure what that thing at the front is, there are some other smaller ones on there, i will try and sand them of but it will be hard I'd suggest you try polishing and bluing the blade otherwise it'll rust quickly. thanks, ill take a look into that looks like a crack, did you quench i...

well, for that kind of steel, 830c would be pretty much ideal, since its carbon steel. and same for annealing thanks, i think the file i made this knife out of probably didn't get to much hotter then that, the furnace had been heated to 1000c but had been turned off and opened a few times, but i pu...
