Yes, Orpackrat is right. I have a picture of one on my site http://www.eclipselauncher.com along with the prototype pictures of the launcher that shows one with the paintball inserted. I'll tell the owner to show some pics with the payload. :-) Twitch: You should email the guy over at http://www.pai...

1" steel ball bearings seem like a natural. Very dangerous though. I think illegal in some parts of the World.

The depth varies. But yes, it has plenty of locking power.

The barrel seal is created when air passes through a tube that is surrounded by a spring that holds light tension on the rear disk. The disk has a lip that encroaches into the airstream and the friction during launch forces the disk tighter. The front of the shell is flush on the disk, then the rece...

Maybe I should have posted this description: Here is a picture of the bore sight on my soon to be released semi-automatic launcher. The bore sight allows you to see into the receiver so you are able to tell if there is a round currently loaded. Since this is a radial belt fed receiver it is indexabl...

Wow, I guess some people are just going to be complete idiots no matter how much you try and help them. Chaos is right in his assumption, maybe if bubba would have actually read the previous posts he would have seen that the last one prior to mine was in regards to not looking down the barrel. The b...

The metal cam provides all the accuracy needed. The receiver is tapered and the rear plate has a lip that helps create somewhat of a firing bolt across the back when the shot is fired. The disks are only there to provide any possible ammo spillage and in the semi-auto config they only place light pr...

Oh well...

That's ok. I do want to point out that I designed paid for this completely out of pocket and wasn't backed by someone. This launcher represents years of hard work and setbacks. I was just curious what people would think and how it would do in the contest. I'll resign to be fair, but I do think I fol...

ok, well... I designed the gun myself and made a lot of the parts by hand before having them coded in for CNC production. I've made changes after testing and based on suggestions from friends. I have a maxnc CNC machine that made a lot of this possible. That and a lot of favors from friends who had ...
