Need Help Construction Vortex Block

Unread postAuthor: nosebleedXD » Tue Jul 29, 2008 2:14 pm

so i've looked through the whole forum practically and found many various ways they were built

some were using pvc, wood and some greyish molding cement [ w.e it is ]

i also realized some people used semi half circles and full ones

my chamber is 1.5"

what would be the best for my gun, to use wood? semi half circle? full??

Im no expert but I would say it depend on what materials are available to you. If you have access to a wood turning lathe, then use wood, the grey cement is bondo I think, it can be bought at a car repair place, so you could use that.

If your going with wood then I would say full circle would be easier to construct.

use epoxy, and try to leave as much wood as you can around the hole for the barrel so that it has more surface area to stick to.

try and get a square just over 1.5" by 1.5", that should be plenty, make sure you sand the inside of the vortex thoroughly otherwise it wont work

I say half hole. I made a half hole, and it was for a 1 inch chamber, and it was made of redwood.

why have i never seen that gun before....... its not only ingenious but gorgeous......


I like how the feed spring goes along the barrel, decreasing the size profile of the gun.

ANYWAY, if you follow that gun well, it should work fine. BBMG's are pretty hard to mess up......
