this is my new semi auto bb gun called the serpent it fires 6 mm bb at a pressure of 7 -20 bar with high accuracy at short to medium range it still needs its magazine to make it a real semi auto.

That's pretty beautiful, but I'm sure you could use a slightly bigger chamber. I know you're trying to keep it small though.
I think your pilot volume could be smaller and the ball valve pilot could be swapped for something a bit easier to use to keep your gun more accurate.

very nice! I like the idea of accuracy over power, but i think you ammo may hold it back. Whats the best shot grouping you have done so far?

Great first QEV gun, looks great, and I'll bet it could look amazing on a wooden gunstock and a real trigger. Also, you share you icon with a veteran member, you migh want i consider changing it to avoid confusion :wink:

:? Can we see the rifling?

That scope could be doing more harm than good at just 10m... How did you mount it onto the barrel?

body all equate to the ultimate synthesis of man and machine.”

Nice airgun!!!
I would suggest you to add wooden support ,just to avoid distortion of the barrel if it fall or something.

Nice build, sleek, simple, works nicely. Perfect example of keep it simple. One thing troubles me, shooting in the house. You can't shoot outside?
Look if you must.
