i doubt it. the pipe is very uncomon

You wouldn't have to use square pipe, you could just use some small diameter pvc pipe, with an elbow that leads into the vortex block. You would just have to make sure that the diameter of the pipe is close to the diameter of the vortex hole.

noname, what will we do with you? Youve introduced so many new things into the world of BBMGs that it's not even funny. If only there was an occupation in which yo could put your rapid fire visionary mind to work... :D

:shock: Simply awesome. You should make a video if you can, It looks fantastic. Thats a great idea. One question: Does the air come in the standard way for a vortex block or does it go in more like a cloud bbmg?

B-E-A-Utiful!!!
Do you have any ideas for a gun body?
I think you should make two of these and build them both into one gun with one LARGE trigger :twisted: That would be a s**tload of bb's flying out of that thing!

That was such an amazing design, I had to make my own, so I made a vortex block out of wood and used something similar to your design, and it works amazingly well, great design!

Lukemc, let me know when you find a 1" clear square T. Also, that only slightly defeats the purpose of an INLINE vortex.
Turbohacker, I don't have the budget for shooting that many BBs. After messing around with this thing for a minute or two, I was picking up BBs for half an hour. I could do it though, just get a compression T instead of an elbow, so there would be a gun on each side of the trigger in the middle.
Spudthug and Spedy, don't start waiting or you'll be waiting a looooong time. Unless you want to give me a video camera, of course.

One side is open, the side connected to the body. The other side is covered with 1/32" aluminum sheet.

what im saying it use a regular circular T and use the actual base of the tee as the vortex block it wouldnt be inline but it would be very easy to make

Yeah, I guess you could.... It would look kind of weird and uglyish. My way prevents anything from "sticking out."

This will be going to the CA Meet!

There's no airsoft fields locally, or I'd consider it.
