WTF is that JSR? I have never seen that thing before. Is Ghost in the Shell a show or movie or what? Looks pretty weird :?

Wow that looks nice. Has a Steyr TMP look as well. Stick a foot long suppressor on there and it will look exactly like one. :twisted:

Edit: cant forget the front grip.. :D

If you get a coupling, you are going to need something to push the schrader valve pin to open it. Unless you want to pump the extra 70 psi it takes to open of course.. :roll:

Edit: oh damn, missed the point.. dont listen to me.

Dangit, i saw manifolds and distributors and thought we were going to talk cars for a second :cry:

I like the possibilities of a double barrel there at the bottom too Frank

A barrel twice that size would really help performance out a lot, but overall, great cannon. maybe you can change the pilot valve to something more ergonomic, but that is just my opinion. it may actually be comfortable, but how would i know, right :wink:

And a (shh) shell ejecting mechanism (shh)
I will be excited for this one. When are you going to post this mechanism? Or does the gun still has to be built around it..? :(

These got me a week of In School Suspension back in the day of middle school. Just dont let many people know their function, because other than that, they look harmless.

Um, you really don't want to. Probably the most disturbing image of hairy French man wearing a pink bikini you'll ever see. I suppose God spared your eyes. Wink

overkill is good in this hobby my friend
Probably overkill until performance is lost. Didn't someone here prove that fact?

Wow, :shock: :shock: I dont think i needed that first pic. xxplosive, i didn't see your pic, but how could it be scarier than that crap!!

I doubt racquetballs are aerodynamic considered how much they slow down when being hit. They are meant for extreme drag to make the match fair on the first serve :lol:

Damn, you guys are real encouraging.
For a plinker of around 300 fps or so, might i suggest making a mini combustion or are you stuck with pneumatics? With a longer barrel, a mini can have some decent power, and you dont have to bother with all those co2 cartridges.

No, more advanced fabrication of the same techniques will not result in any kind of advancement. It'll just be tidier, heavier and more expensive. I did not mean that the ideas of spudding would be changed, just the "coolness" factor. If everyone could make a 200x hybrid to sit in their room it wou...

Using unregged co2? Good luck getting that blowguns rubber seals to not freeze. seriously start with something simpler and safer... even much lower pressures can be dangerous... when a pressure hose ruptures near you at 300 psi you'll know what I mean... I agree. I have had hose blow out on my leg b...

Haha jook, i meant your gun when i said that. Sad, but inevitable.

The unfortunate result is most of the older members lose interest and leave. I'm on...

get a sprinkler or QEV valve and then use the ball valve eto pilot it, it'll only cost about $15 to do but will make a huge difference.
I understand a 1/4 inch qev, but a 3/4 sprinkler is way overkill.
