Vortex Block Size

Unread postAuthor: SpudsMcGee » Sat Jan 31, 2009 6:52 pm

I had read somewhere that the size of the vortex block changed the rate of fire, and I've been looking for it to see exactly what it said but, I haven't been able to find it.

So, what i wanted to know was, does the size of the block change the rate of fire?

If so, does the ROF increase when the block gets bigger?

Edit: I going to build a marble bbmg, wish me luck!

I would think the opposite, larger would mean more travel for the bb's. but then again I have no clue..

Probably what I'll have to do is experiment.

I also think that a larger block will grant you a lower ROF. Im not sure about the actual efficiency.

Good luck! This has been done a one or two times, but certainly not alot.
Where the hell will you get that flow from?

I actually condemned the idea of a marble bbmg, because of the amount of air needed. So now I'm just working on a .177 bbmg, thanks though for the good luck.

i dont have much experiance in bbmg but i would think that since vortexs draw bbs in using the venturi effct, a smaller block wouldnt require as much flow to create a more powerful vortex, so i would imagine a smaller block would be more efficient
but thats just my untested theory based off of logic (at least mine) and little background knowledge ..im NOT an expert..btw good luck on the .177 bbmg

"i wonder if i can do that a little lowe- oh apparently no"

"If a little is good.....more is better"

My last words: "Ooooo! what does that do!?!?"
