But then again we are all entitled to our own opinions
well I wouldn't say it's just about opinions here... with cartridges you can foul yourself that things are simpler... but this isn't true... a 'traditional' hybrid would do all the stuff on it's own, while in case of cartridges you are the one who has to meter & load ammo

anyway I wonder who will be the first person to build a semi or full auto combustion hybrid... lol maybe we need a competition ??

Update: I tried the cartridge one last time. This time I used a ball bearing as ammo. The result was similar to last time. Both my O-rings were blown out as well as my burst disk. Nothing could by found. The blast was incredibly loud however and damage was pretty good.

Sorry for the double post.

I intend to pretty it up when I have the time but, it is just not practical to shot a lot. Sound is also a concern for me. It is insanely loud and the neighbors do not appreciate it.
