yep thats almost as close to a rifle as you can get with such large calibers thats why grenade launcher look that way. and twitch do some research I"m sure there is a loop hole, like maybe they ban such deceives but does the law really prohibit some pneumatic rotation device (the pneumatic drive)

Then we get to the parts issue again. IF someone buys an entire airplane worth of certified spare parts of name brand and assembles them, is it really a certified plane? Can you even call it a Cessna or Piper at that point? Really, all I have built is a air powered engine that spits paintballs out of it's exhaust... in semi auto.... :-) So I guess if I offered spare parts it would make it easy for someone to assemble their own frankenstein. Not so sure of this aspect yet.... I am sure we will come up with something though.

Im sorry about my earlier comment solar, i didnt mean to come off rude what i meant was im not really interested in the current config because it wont meet my needs.

However, the system you are using for making it semi auto would be awesome to buy or build. Perhaps thinking of selling the unit in a modular form? buy what you want perhaps?

Ship it to us aussies under the description of: pressure pipe fittings?

hehe

You do realise this is a public forum, as visible to you and I as it is to any memeber of the Law Enforcement community that might be watching?

Just a thought :wink:

No worries as you mates say down under. I won't do anything that could be construed as illegal. I don't think it will be as much of a problem as you might think since it has other uses that are considered useful as a lifesaving device. I'll be able to tackle these issues as soon as we get into production. Looks like May 1st is a real start date. Meeting with an engineer today to finalize some design features. New web site and videos will be forthcoming in the next couple weeks.

if their law enforcement closely monitors websites like this to ensure single parts or objects that potentially could be used to build a pneumatic can not transfered between individuals, if it's parts who cares hasn't Gort sent pistons to people in Australia

I think I would be foolish not to offer the parts separately to allow others to make use of the safety that my metal launchers offer. Most likely barrel and ballast chamber parts. Perhaps drive indexer and valve assemblies too.

New videos soon and an actual unveiling in two days.

Kicking this up to ask questions about the new valve (don't want to be a post whore :) ).

Solar, the new valve, is it going in this, or do you have something else in mind?

Yes, it replaces the oem piston that operated the main valve in the rear of the launcher which was only rated to 250psi.

I wasn't going to pick up such an old thread, but since you already did I guess the picture of the new valve belongs in here too and I should answer the last question.

Yes, the launchers are available now for shipping before Christmas. Haven't got around to the new videos yet. Maybe this week.
