Really nice gun, very creative. If you look in the album you will find a picture of my jeep. It would look good mounted on there. Again, great job.

That would certainly solve the portability issues that strafers suffer from if you could have an on-board compressor.

I'm really interested in building one of these but I can't find a good guide on the internet on how the bbs get steadily fed into the vortex block without jamming. Could someone please give me a smack along side the answer to my stupid question?

Thanks

Haha, we could invent a whole new sport of "BB-Truck Wars."

Also, what idd you use as a swivel on the mount?

the air pressure keeps the bb's violently moving to reduce jamming.

the swivel was made from a bed frame wheel bracket and pin. the round rod thats pressed into the U bracket sticks down into a pvc cap with a hole drilled in it which is stuck in the metal pipe tripod.

Spring / BB loading

Unread postAuthor: wba3107 » Sun Oct 26, 2008 10:52 am

Great gun by the way. Been wanting to build a 50 cal myself. With your plans it may now happen thanks.

Question how do you load the bb's I assume in the rear by removing the spring. In you plan downloads it doesnt seem to list the full chamber design. Could you explain how you built the internal chamber spring mech.

Thanks and great gun.

He loads them by removing the rear spring and cap, then pouring the BB's in. The chamber spring is just a spring that pushes the BB's towards the vortex block for easy feeding. BTW, you couldve also PM'D him for this information.
