An easy way to make a vortex gun would just be to secure a vortex block inside that cloud chamber, you wouldn't spend any extra money making the vortex gun and you'd still have the regular cloud if you made the block detachable.

what is your barrel made of looks like it is coupled in the middle. if it is it could be a lot smoother shooting if you used a one piece barrel

Ok, because I dont want to start a new topic to ask a question about bbmgs, I guess I'll ask here:
Is there really a way to determine the best barrel length for a bbmg? obviously something like 1.5:1 doesnt apply to something with a compressor tank hooked up to it. I did use the search link and wiki but couldnt find anything relevant.
Would a barrel of say 3 feet be acceptable without robbing any power?

also nice gun spudthug. I agree give it a snazzy paint job.

And the smaller the chamber....but then you have fewer BB's so there must be some point where you can get a decent ROF from a nice long barrel with enough BB"s in the chamber yet the chamber is small enough to have good performance.
