Wood Stock Vortex Cap

Unread postAuthor: Molybdenum » Mon Jun 14, 2010 1:22 pm

The vortex cap I used for this was one I made just to try out the whole vortex cap thing to see if I could make one. After letting it sit around for awhile, I decided to give it a new barrel and a wood stock.

It shoots reasonably well, the hopup unit at the end does help some, but it causes some occasional fliers that are way out of the normal spread.
I have a bigger mag for it, consisting of a 90 fitting and a longer pipe, but I couldn't find it for the pics.
The rail was just for kicks.

Looks good, The tape could be replaced with a threaded cap for loading, and it could be painted. Kinda reminds me of a P90.

I have no idea what the fps is, sorry.
I'm also not sure what kind of wood it is: I got it out of a junk heap (it has nail holes in it :lol: )

Wood Stock Vortex Cap


So there's a bunch of guitar strumming hippies hanging around in your cap, smoking questionable herbs and engaging in free love :D
