still not the same as sawing into some pipe yourself.
In adulthood it is gratifying to add some movie classics from one's adolescence to the collection :D

I'll agree however that it's nowhere near as satisfying as designing and building your own.

Re: Auto Gas Design

Interesting design, if I understood correctly it's intended to cycle with a constant flow of gas?

I think you'd have to try it out yourself.
Maybe not, given this appears to be a bot account promoting whatever is in the signature.

Re: A tale of two valves

That's pretty impressive, especially for such a short barrel and small chamber, although I wouldn't tale a shuttlecock as a representative projectile really. As it's not airtight it's basically being propelled by the air impulse and a fast-opening valve would have the advantage here irrespective of ...

Re: Electro-pneumatic Eclipse with Air-burst rounds

That's just unbelievable.

Have you basically made a pneumatic version of the XM25?

Does it have a countdown timer to initiate the round based on a predetermined expected trajectory or is it counting revolutions assuming a rifled barrel?

Surefire knock-off made for airsoft, it's steel but I doubt it's going to last a long time to be honest.

Quad rails god rails.
That's what I ended up using, although it's now a tri-rail after I cut it to fit.

Here's what it used to look like:

hah, not quite (yet... he was 5 years older than I currently am before getting started!) . I have been having a little fun with powderburners lately, although it does keep one away from the workshop.

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Not technically a spud gun but I bought myself a crossbow and it's quite fun and having never fired a "proper" one before, surprisingly accurate.

Re: A tale of two valves

There's no comparison the smaller cannon shoots with way more force Have you quantified that force? Are you running the same pressure in both launchers? Seems a little counter-intuitive that a valve with what I presume is faster opening time but lower flow would perform better in these circumstances.

there are plenty of carbide rifling buttons for sale on ebay around $50.
I've seen these but I was a little hesitant to purchase one, lest it's something flagged by the powers that be in the same way those wink wink nudge nudge "fuel filters" tend to be.

I would say red chef caliber is more available at my local supplier than russet.
