Well the shipping of my 50rd hopper was delayed, but I think I may have to change the loading mech for it to work well. In my current magazine I have to have a pad in the top of the tube so that paintballs dont get destroyed. I think this may happen in a hopper when I'm low in ammo.

So will I have to make a system with a a bolt or paddle in order to use the hopper?

Yep, it's a double post...

I got kind of tired of paintballs, so I added a blowdart barrel and some small add-ons such as the sight and stock. It well suited for hunting cans and extremely accurate, even at compressor pressures:

I ordered some .38 caliber slingshot ammo and even some .40 paintballs, so those may be installed, or I could just buy a pre-made unit

Not really a repeater though if you have to press the button for every shot.

I thought that was acceptable to be called a repeater, just nit semi auto. There's also a cool revolver unit that I could use fir dart

You could of course still refer to it as a repeater, I'm just saying it wouldn't be so convenient.

If I remember well those blowgun revolver mags need to be manually rotated, it would be cool if you could make a cam attachment that rotated it by pump action.

This rifle is pretty cool. For airsoft conversion, make your own paintballs, and put airsoft bbs instead of paint.

It would probably be easier to convert the little brother; the blow dart pistol

True. That is very true. I would make paintballs with pepper spray mix though >.> (mods if you don't like that, remove it....)

I would reeally have no use for such a thing, but a powder filled ball may create a cool effect

It would. Pepper spray paintballs.... Heh, I would win any paintball/airsoft skirmish! I might try and make some of my own... If you don't mind my asking, how much did the first version of your rifle cost?

Ok. Thanks. I might make my own version with a blow gun trigger (easy to come by....) and maybe rotate the T so it faces down so that I can use an actual magazine.

A blowgun trigger would be useful for a single shot launcher, but what makes the slide valve the best choice in this case is that it pilots the valve and at the same time cuts off air supply from the main chamber, making it perfect for semi-auto.
