I must say this has to be one of the top 15 guns to be posted this month.

Chaos - Great idea and I'm glad you like it! It would really suck to pump up a few bottles (I'd be pumping for days) but I like the idea of having a secondary tank that I could open when needed.

Integral - Thx, I've actually been looking for something that will JUST snugly slide over the barrel. What I'm using is a cut off piece of shower head pipe (lmao) but it has a bit of play, which is why I've used some masking tape to make a better seal. I think something clear or transparent would be neat, but the local hardware giant doesn't seem to have anything I can use. =(

Cod_Fillets - I've been thinking about that a lot lately. Prone position tends to buggar up my elbow so that would be useful. =)

Judgement_Arms - The barrel is not ACTUALLY rifled. I apologize and should have been more specific... I'm simply calling it a "rifle" because it has the look and feel of a rifle. I know... I'm a horrible person.

Should have mentioned that I shoot left, in case anyone is wondering why everything is hung on the right side of the stock. I'm in the process of finding something to use as a case to put the two batteries in, and mount that to the stock too so its not on the solenoid.

you could use a card board box and hot glue that always works for me.

if you like you can cut out a door for easy replacement.

Or just hit up a radio shack or something along those lines and get a project box. They have pretty lids that are removable and shiny.

Just modify the valve,saves the trouble of a project box and is usually cheaper than all the electronics.

I love your gun but it would be nice I think if you somehow put the tank on as some sort of backpack.
