Sidestrafer

Unread postAuthor: Lockednloaded » Thu Aug 19, 2010 9:26 pm

As a "side" project, punny aren't I, I'm going to make a "sidestrafer" vortex BBMG out of primarily epoxy. For those of you out there who don't know what a "sidestrafer is, Its basically just a vortex turned on its side feeding from the side.

My plans are to cast an epoxy block around a piece of 3/4" PVC. On top of that I will either build a vertical hopper or have a spring fed "magazine" parallel to the barrel.

so my questions are:

should the vortex hole still be 3/4" for airsoft bbs?
will this consume more/less/equal amount of air as a conventional inline?
Will the ROF be equal to a conventional inline?
Are there any feeding issues with this type of design?

Thanks in advance for the help

p.s. I've seen the Epoxy casting how to, but does anyone have any other specific tips for me?

Yeah it's pretty much the same thing, except the sidestrafer was around long before the vortex cap.

I'm no expert when it comes to BBMGs, but I would say that the rate of fire and air consumption should be very similar to that of conventional designs. You may want to take a look at the other sidestrafers in the showcase section if you already haven't. Doing so might help answer a few of your questions.

how is this any different than simply turning a vortex bbgm sideways when shooting...

I think i fail to see any advantage to this design.

Im with Jhalek, and also, why would you cast it in epoxy? For endcaps or something?

sidestrafers are more compact, and for me they seem very easy to build.

casting it in epoxy will make it more stable
