Yep I got the idea about the oxygen instead of air
I dont really want to invest that much more into it anymore...
oxygen tank- +-$80
regulator- $50
hoses and all the fittings- $50

$180 not worth it to me...

I think the biggest upgrade Ill do is make the barrel longer. HGDT says it needs to be 33ft long to reach maximum velocity

So this is what happens when i come back from Florida (Disney World)
*Forgot to mention, sorry)

This for some reason makes me want to build one, but i couldnt do it now, so it could wait.

I think its a overall nice construction, the recoil was nice. Just a bigger barrel, as you mentioned, and i think it would be fine.

Do oxygen, it will definitely be worth it, but not now, later. I see what you mean with the price, so what i would do is just wait until you feel like adding oxygen to your setup.
