Oh, one more thing, as to the late nature of the post, I'm sorry but I just recently found this group and read all of the posts regarding BBMG, including this thread. I hope I haven't stepped on anyone's toes in the process, I'm just looking for an education.

I've already warmed up my machine shop to produce what I'm calling a "Cloudy Vortex" gun that utilizes the best aspects of both systems and removes the drawbacks to each.

Huge air consumption with an open bore is a un-fixable problem. What I DO hope to achieve is a more economical device that has a high rate of fire, completely reliable (as in NO stoppages), and uses it's air in the best possible ratio to BB delivery. A portable tank is then do-able, as long as it carries regulated high pressure with a reasonably decent volume, ie. a 4500 PSI compressed air paintball tank regulated to 120PSI.

That should be good enough for 4000 or so BBs (maybe 6000 to 8000?) between fills with a delivery rate of about 3000 RPM + and a muzzle velocity of about 400 FPS.

More info and a movie as I finish my project.
