Sorry for the double post- couldn't edit for some reason- stupid internet.

Soo... UPDATE!

Worked on this a ton last night- and have it 99% done. all that needs to be done now is bend and fit the brakeline and fit the brass barrel inside the brakeline. It will be done on Saturday for sure!

I love the feel of this- I dunno what it looks like or anything- I think it looks almost futuristic but I love it

Here's what I've done- fitted a stock on it- its just an old ax handle-but it works great. Also I tore off the pressure washer because the putty didnt hold it very well, and so I used two hose clamps.

At some point this will be getting bondo and paint work. Just dunno when

So for your enjoyment- pictures! Tell me what you think please

View of stock- pretty simple just an old ax handle hose clamped to back. I like it though, and will add some foam or something to make it more comfortable

You'll stil have to built the bottom of the Tee -to the washer handle-connection.

You might find the reducer that goes into the bottom will interfere with the feed of bb's from the back.
If so, you'll have some cutting to do.

I filled up the bottom reducer ring so the bb's didn;t pool in the bottom too much.This restricts the free motion of the bb's.Filling up the bottom to a flat surface will solve that.

You do have an " ultimate inline" style piston to feed the bb's right?

I love the layout.
Maybe that's because it is so...BTB.. :D
Now for the finishing touches later on:

Be sure to use a wooden or cork block when you get to sanding the bondo later.It will give you nice flat surfaces.
Some sandpaper on pipe ( various diameters) will provide you with a tool to get some smoother corners.

If the power would somehow disappoint...you could still use all you got now and add a QEv and pop-off to boost the power...

BTB- if your talking about the piece to go into the bottom of the tee- I have it ready- its a 3/4" x1/4" reducer bushing, with a piece of aluminum pipe epoxied in. I just have to cut it down a bit and fill it out so it fills out the entire portion of the tee. I just neglected to take a picture of it. I have it though, just have to finish fitting it. I also have to secure the brakeline so the elbow doesn't spin around, but that's a quick 5 min thing. Its just loose now to adjust it to line up with bottom.

Also, in regards to the piston- I have one, I just have to find a suitable spring, which shouldn't be too hard. It will be there however.

Thanks for the tips on bondo- I also plan on adding a tri-rail system to the foregrip for the launcher and other accessories.

And in regards to power- may perhaps add a ball detent as well. I'm working on that assembly today/this weekend. Not too worried about it for now- I'm more just pumped to see this thing annihilate whatever I aim it at.

Thanks for the comments- any other tips?

Well....since my last comments were all taken care of already...you are pretty much on your own from here... :D

Oh yeah..it might be a good idea to drill the hole in the filled up plug at an angle, so the jet of air is placed under the curve of the elbow...

? I'm not quite sure what you mean- if you mean the elbow is off center- thats just becuase its not secured it moved. once its secured it will be in the middle of the tee, straight up from the center of the bottom port.

Is that what you mean? If not, please illuminate me lol

This is actually a configuration I really like- I may add a configuration where its just a short section of 3/4" in the back to make it like SMG style-wouldn't be much ammo capacity at all but its a cool "short" style

Starting to look awesome!
I like the "shorty" version.
There's a way to add larger mag capacity to the shorty probably.
(Maybe a ball-valve connecting larger mag for reloading(?))

BTW, I did nominate BTB's deathray (same concept) in a contest a while back.
(would've nominatedJSR's original Blow-forward Bolt design, but it didn't seem a fully functional piece...I felt bad for not though).

Hope you keep up the updates...it will be an awesome creation IMO. 8)
Edited:to add linky's
Edit2: Random, but noticed you're a "lefty" in pic(?).
Main thing though, hope you wear eye protection when testing it. 8)
