Nicely! Punching holes to 3mm bullhide and denting the 50cal ammobox behind it easily! Great gun for the price :D

Bit of guestimate based on limited dimensions from jake and pics I found online but it seems to have worked :)

Here's a commercially available item:

Piston seal then...gotcha. :wink:

Thought about playing around with o-ringed piston seals?

Have been tossing it about for a while now...it's "on the pile" of things to do.

Its 4.10 AM here in Finland, and i'm working SAC contest in my buddys hams station. Haven´t had a single station in 5 hours and i'm starting to run out of energy drinks :D Damn, i have used to control my radio using my 3 (soon 4) screens and a foot pedal with a HiFi class headphone/mic, all i got here is paper log and a crude and shitty mic with a mono audio. OH, and the antenna were using is just a 40m piece of silver coated copper wire.

I did a quick Google search (as procrastination is always welcome when writing an essay on a topic you don't care about) but I'm still not quite sure what the goal is.

So, what's the point and what makes it fun? :D

You've just got to make as many contacts in a certain time as possible. It's just fun, because of reasons.

Interesting, never seen it done before! Synthetic seals seem to work well enough though...

JSR, if you want to test o-ringed seal the FWB is open for raping, though the white seal you made might destroy when trying to remove it
