Aluminum UInline ~Stock Update~

Unread postAuthor: Spudinator » Wed Apr 23, 2008 7:08 pm

~UPDATE~

Stock Finished.

Hey all, got a little something you guys should like. This is a project for school (thats right, I said school, gotta love tech schools) that I'm working on and am nearly finished with, just have a few things that need to be added on.

The gun is an inline vortex made of mostly aluminum, with a few Teflon/Nylon peices.

Specs:
.177 caliber

BB reservoir is 6" long with an ID of 1.625"

Vortex block is machined aluminum, vortex is .56"

Barrel on right now is temporary, need to purchase a POS 10-pump to salvage a barrel from...

The stock is forged aluminum (lucky find), I'll be machining the butt of the stock soon (as you can see in pics its incomplete).


New thing far as I've seen is the quick-disconnect feature I machined for disconnecting the back to fill BB's. The back twists 50 degrees then pulls out, and I'll be putting a lock on the chamber to keep it from accidentally twisting out, even though its somewhat stiff.


Image
(That little peice underneath is gonna be the underslung "grenade" launcher, uses 209 shotgun primers for propulsion, not gonna go any further than that though)

Image
The Allen bolts in there are gonna be replaced with short pins that are flush with the chamber, just using those temporarily.

Image
Barrel threads directly into the vortex block, its very sturdy and accurate.

Image
Forged stock....

Image
As you can see the barrel is pretty stubby, not gonna get much velocity or accuracy with it, just there untill I can get a longer peice.


I'll be adding the front grip, air trigger (will be inside front grip), trigger, trigger connecting rod, "grenade" launcher, and the rest of the stock throughout this week and possibly next if need be, will update with any progress.

And a Red Dot :P

What do you guys think?

(depending on the diameter of your chamber) I would suggest bed/couch-cushion springs, they are usually long enough (if not you could always braise a couple together) and have moderate resistance..making it perfect for bbmg's...

The HighP version is next, gonna be running dual barrel/vortex and all alum construction but smaller chamber volume for quick response (and save on ammo consumption lol).

STHORNE~ Thats a great idea never thought of that, thanks! I'll have to look for some old POS furniture for salvage...

Wow, very impressive! It looks awesome to say the least. I like the machine work you've done, it's very clean.

How did you make the grip frame?
