Vortex block width?

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Thu Apr 12, 2007 6:23 pm

Hello all,

Well I am almost done with my inline vortex BBMG, but stopped and thought of something.

Does the vortex block width matter?? I am wondering because as I thought about it, it seems like a thinner block may fire faster because then more BB's could go to the sides of the block, so it would load faster.

Or does it not matter??

Thanks for your advice.

Well it kinda does matter because the wider you have it the less bb's fall into it and the thinner it is there would be a smaller path for the bb's to follow and then get thrown into the barrel but also there would be mbb's falling into it so I guess it wouldn't matter. But if your block is to wide the bb's could get stuck and not fall through.

I have a 2" chamber on mine and a 1' wide block and it works amazingly so I guess it could matter... or not. What size is your block, and the chamber?

The only thing that would matter is if there is enough room down the side for a few bb's to pass through. if there is room it will work all the same.
