Steel is actually stronger per given weight, but as you state with a magnetic system you would be in the right to use aluminum. 7075 is stronger BTW. You can find the tensile strength to determine psi rating from the kaiser or alcoa sites. The magnet valve you speak of has some issues, mostly that y...

Holy ballistics! I was just curious about how many people were using what type of round. I tried setting up a poll, but it didn't work for some reason. Some great info however. Thanks for all the responses.

Looks like the first of May for the start of production. Still trying to get 40mm stock that is not pre-anodized to keep the finish consistent. Some great things are in the works. I will be sending a few out for the fields to approve soon as well.

I will respect the etiquette. Once it is on the market I will be going into the details a lot more. Some of the basics in regards to any competition is that it never needs to be wound since it is pneumatically driven and it has a completely customizable barrel and volume chamber design. It also has ...

Sorry for not responding. You are right, I am VERY busy with the final development and business matters. There is also the issue of my involvement with the design and implementation of a video system for an arena tour that has come out of the blue. It is pneumatically driven and never needs to be wo...

I have a couple videos on my myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/Serpentine9

There is a .50 caliber test posted now too. I just received some new foam rounds to try that are 40mm and have a paintball warhead. I'll upload something as soon as I get some more video.

Ok, lots of questions. 1) it is not based on the scepter launcher. It can however fire the scepter 40mm grenades or similar rounds 2) I have no plans to make an under barrel system at this time. I am looking into mounting a semi auto sniper style (longbow or similar) to the current launcher. 3) It k...

It has interchangeable barrels and volume chambers. Yes, it could do an infinite belt as long as you do not have a vetical rise that is too much for the springs. Not sure how far that is yet, but it will also have replaceable springs for more drive power. I like the M1 look too. I might offer adapte...

I am not aware of the Drulov Rada or the Dragonslayer, I will check them out. Yes, a patent attorney, a commercial liability attorney and a business law attorney..... *sigh*... anyways, it is designed to launch much heavier rounds than paintballs, but we are still in the testing phase with those. I ...

It runs off of HPA. I am going to try it with CO2 as well. I have been firing it between 50-300 psi. With 15-20 paintballs and simple paper towel sabots I get 150fps at 125psi and 395fps at 275psi. Using better sabots would be more efficient. I have had little nerf balls up to 495 fps. I really need...

ok, I have it posted over at warpig, but it isn't up on pigtv yet I don't think.

You can access the main page now though with a video.
