Re: Electro-pneumatic Eclipse with Air-burst rounds

You can fire them at as low a pressure as you want with smooth bore. The rifled rounds need a little push to cut the grooves though. We want to do some paintball and airsoft rounds as well but need to get the base products off the ground first. Going to revisit the revolver in a 5 round version and ...

Re: Electro-pneumatic Eclipse with Air-burst rounds

Non-contact OC or taggent dispersal, flash bang, anti-drone net rounds, and drag chute deployment for reducing impact for less-lethal rounds to maintain faster initial velocity and flatter trajectories. Nothing lethal, that would require more safeguards. This is designed as a low cost air-burst tech...

Re: Electro-pneumatic Eclipse with Air-burst rounds

Thank you. We are making the rounds as well. They are lightweight rigid foam with a hollow nose for payload. We manufacture a fuze that uses an ultra-capacitor in lieu of a battery that gets charged in .150mS after closing the breech. The FCU identifies the type of round and programs accordingly fro...

Re: Latest Eclipse Defense 37mm Pneumatic

Been a rough ride but we are finally starting full production of this straight pneumatic. The ATF seems to be loosening their stance with the pneumatic less-lethal launchers since all the .68 caliber kinetic rounds for paintball guns are being allowed even though they are over .50 as well. Just uplo...

Re: opinions needed on concept

I have built valves like this. Spring return works well too since ballast pressure will keep seal closed. They open nice and fast but it is true that you don't need much travel. They are also safer than a bleeding pilot type valve.

Re: 12g CO2 Adapter

Tap an 1/8" NPT and get an ASA adapter that will thread into it from www.palmerspursuit.com then get a regular paintball style with ASA threads.

Re: Rotation mechanism Revolver pneumatic

The mauser style cam is a very good and reliable way of doing it. You need to make sure than the spring loaded pin does not have a lot of play and that the carrier for it is also with minimal play. The reason for us going from a 2" cam to a 6" cam around the entire cylinder was based on the problem ...
