If the lack of popularity of this obscure Weihrach modelis anything to go by, apparently dieseling airguns are not an economically viable proposal.

@ tech

yeah maybe... but you won't know unless you test it...

Maybe a premix would be better with some kind of super light piston
but the point of this is increasing velocity and thus power without making it more complicated... if I wanted more power only I would build a light gas gun... but if it works then it would be possible to adapt this to semi auto/full auto guns without adding much complexity
