Slowing down ROF?

Unread postAuthor: Mac/pistol man » Thu Apr 03, 2008 7:06 pm

Hey guys,
Would it be possible to slow down the ROF on an inline vortex BBMG, without lowering the pressure?

I am thinking an O-ring, but would that cause feeding problems?

I haven't built one yet but I would say to move the pieces of wood(Plexiglass in my case) lower on the vortex block, so less ammo gets in.. Just a guess. :)

Well, Maybe if you only put the things on the side of the vortex a wee bit.
But It's only an opinion hope it helps a little. :D

by preventing BBs from loading easily you will lower the ROF, but that is only because you are making it take longer for a new BB to get in there, sending your efficiency even deeper down in the trash than it already was. follow Ilovetoblowthingsup's link to see how to do it with out wasting so much air, and actually ending up with a higher FPS

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
