Eclipse Belt Feeder

Unread postAuthor: Solar » Mon Oct 19, 2009 1:05 am

Modified Eclipse 40mm launcher. Feeds from attached ammo box. Electronic trigger for remote operation. Can also fire from pneumatic trigger. Mounted on a Bogen tripod with fluid head.

Can't say why or where or who, but good things are happening. I wanted to share while I still can.

Holy mother of... video PLEASE!

Full auto now? No delinker/shell ejector apparent though, I'm guessing the belt remains intact.

Not mechanical full auto yet, but can be made to mimic with electronic interruptor. Details in a week or so. I am vanishing into the desert for awhile.

That was already asked:

and answered:

Please pay attention next time. Thanks!
Anyway, That is one of the coolest airguns I have ever seen! Great machining work! Truly amazing!

Nah ..the original Eclipse looked way better.

It's the belt that just makes it ubercool :D
The rest looks like a bunch of pipes..Not that it's bad looking but..come on:


Great machining work!

What part are you reffering to exactly?


Again..it is the promiss this thing holds 's what's cool.the assumed function of it...not the actual shape..
Pipes and blocks..At least...in this picture..

Hope to see it on Discovery one day in the hands of some elite force!!
Good luck with it!

Possibly. Last I recall, his paintball model was retailing at something like $1500. Not sure where it was retailing, or whether he's still producing that model.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?
