Well I have it done now, I just glued the new chamber but I accidentally double threaded my 2"x1" bushing so I need to get a new one+coupler

Notice the modified flush bushings!

Very nice gun, well built.

How many shots do you get from one charge? It seems pointless to have a magazine if you have to refill the pressure reservoir after every shot.

Well I get only one shot per air load, but I have my gun setup so I have it constantly hooked up to the compressor.
