yea i really like the performance i am thinking of making more this size and having a single shot bolt action with a integrated suppressor similar to this.
any ideas on how to make the bolt setup would want to keep the cartridge close to the back for longer barrel

I think that there is no need for cartridges. Just use a typical chamber. Loading is going to be a bit tricky but I think it can be done if you load ammo from behind and use a detent

Yeah but I am talking about a traditional hybrid, but with a bolt action loading mechanism... I hope this pic is pretty self-explanatory

yea that might work but it would be hard to get right plus you would only be able to use ball bearings and no sabot/wadding and with a .5mm gap and at this size it wouldnt help performance witch is what i dont want and you would have to reloaded after each shot and i kinda want to move onto something that can get a few shots of in a reasonable amount of time

I think it is just a misconception - cartridges are not faster. You still have to reload and fuel them.
This design can achieve high ROF with an automated metering system, or at least a push button fuelling system

ohh and who said it can't use non-spherical ammo with it?

sure you have to reload all of them but when you have then youll have a consistent 10 shots and will be safer then having a premixed chamber attached to the firing chamber and much easier and smaller than having both a fuel and air chambers, and sure you can use non-spherical ammo but i cant really get much where i come from and homemade stuff would be hard to get it to seal

Nice launcher, and impressive penetration of the coin.

It's great to see that the forum has regained interest in hybrid launchers, and its members are realizing the potential of such propellant systems. This is a step in the right direction, and I hope it continues.

I'm just surprised you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, been a while since we saw a finished project from your side ;)

On an unrelated note, and this probably is saying something about me in an obscurely Rorschach test sort of manner, but ilovefire's avatar is increasingly reminding me of a closeup of illuminated female ladyparts :roll:

That's hardly subtle - and are you suggesting that associations with a cute if somewhat whimsical pussy is somehow related to the fact that we haven't seen any tangible development on your part for a while :P :D

edit: so can anyone think of a way i can make that single shot bolt action cartridge gun or are you guys still looking at my avatar?
