6mm airsoft BBs, or .177 steel ones; I just mix 'em up.

I hate second pages....The clip fed is OK I guess, I never really got around to finishing the clip. I doubt I'll finish it but I might get around to it sometime.

That is a vortex, you can see the block.
Locksmith, your's may win in volume, but not in vortex size or total diameter, which makes the build extrmely difficult. No offense, but I think myself (and possibly others) would prefer mine, maybe because it has a trigger and is most likely more powerful and accurate because it has an actual barrel, not a pen tube. :wink:

They are, most definitely! :D And it was 100% free, which is even cooler. Once you've been in the hobby for a few years, you end up with so many unused parts that you can make all kinds of crazy stuff without buying anything. I'll try to whip up another full size one in a wewk or two, I probably have everything needed.

Ick, Bondo blocks made me shudder. My experiences with Bondo blocks are that they wear down 5-6 times as fast as acrylic and don't blast BBs very hard.
