Front feeding inline vortex block

Unread postAuthor: potatoflinger » Fri Jul 20, 2007 3:37 pm

I am in the process of building a strafer that looks like a pistol, and I was wondering if anyone else has made a gun where the bb's go into the vortex block from the front instead of the back. I am pretty sure that it will work, I just want to know if anyone else has tried it.

i have thought about it, but it would be complicated to put a plunger in there along with a coaxial barrel. best of luck though

I have but i didn't have a plunger, it is a portable inline vortex block bbmg, using a 1.5L coke bottle as an air tank for the moment, so i only fire short bursts.
Adding a spring would be pretty easy, but the tricky part would be being able to draw the plunger back and still have an airtightish bb chamber.

I already have it set up, it should be pretty easy. I am also saving my money for a camera, so when I get finished with the pistol I'll post it.

It'll work fine, there's no reason why it wouldn't. Sounds pretty good, can't wait to see it.
Did you use a "full hole" or "partial hole" vortex block?

It's a full hole vortex block, I was planning on using a half hole, but figured out a way to make it easier to build it with a full hole. The accuracy is definitely going to be terrible because it will have a really short barrel. It might be a while before I get a camera, since I need almost 100 more dollars to get it, but I'll still post it.

Edit: I changed it again, now it is a 3/4 hole vortex block, but it will be so much easier to make.
