Paddle/interupting feed system ?s

Unread postAuthor: iPaintball » Thu Aug 09, 2007 7:17 pm

I recently set out to modify my broken Crosman 357 10 shot pellet revolver to be able to shoot 6mm airsof BBs. I plan to run a tubular magazine(Bic pen tube) under the barrel that will hold 18 shots. The magazine will then run into the bottom port of a 1/8" brass tee. The barrel will run through the side ports, one side pressing against the Co2 nozzle, and the other side running out of the plastic gun enclosure. My main question is this: Will a paddle/interrupter feed system work if the magazine is spring loaded?

I have only seen this done with a gravity magazine, so I just don't know if it will work. Any help, suggestions, comments, etc. will be appreciated!

It might not. id go for a blow-foward bolt design, or make the paddle push the actual bb into the barrel before it fires. and have fun making a paddle interrupter that small........

I already did. Most of this is already constructed.

Maybe a blow forward system? It is a bit bulky to have one, but I am positive it will work with a spring loaded mag.

I think I will have to. I just don't know how I will fit it in the gun.

What year model is that 357 ? If its from the early 90's/late 80's I would say convert it to a crosman 3357 .50 cal paintball marker. That would be the more worthwhile mod.

Instead of a complicated feed, why not try something like this? The pressure should fire the shot in the barrel and if the mag tube is of the same calibre, it will keep the other rounds from exiting.

Th only reason I haven't tried a feed system like that is because my barrel runs through the tee, so my barrel actually has a hole in it. I guess I could cut off the drilled out portion, but I would lose power.
