Nice construction, even if it is very heavy on unessential bends (which will cut power a bit).
I wouldn't be too concerned about a scope, as I am sure you are finding that the accuracy isn't perfect.

About what Scotty said: It does look pretty "real", so be careful where and how you use it. The last thing you want to do is get yourself shot because someone (or a police officer) thinks they're under fire.

Novacastrian: How about use whatever the heck you can get your hands on?
frankrede: Well then I guess it won't matter when you decide to drink bleach because your out of kool-aid.
...I'm sorry, but that made my year.

Nice gun! :D Top notch work you got there! One thing though, is your blowgun connection hooked up to the bleed valve? In the pictures, it looks you replaced the solenoid with a blowgun attachment. That's fine and dandy, but don't you get more power if the blowgun is attached to the top of the valve? Still, nice job! Got any dammage pics or range data to share yet?

*cough* the barret 14mm has met its maker in my eyes......

what is your barrel made out of?

and you should find a way to put some kind of sight on there just for kicks, even if its just a red dot scope or a red dot recticle.

that thing is just DAMN sexy.

Hey Bassmaster, 60-90 yard accurate shots are impeccible.
I would like to make an all metal replica of your gun, please give me your permission!
The only thing i think i need is your bolt design.
What pressure are you using?

Peace
Scotty

P.s. I have never built a pneumatic before (About 20 combustions though,oh yeah and a stainless Hybrid :twisted: )
I forgot to mention that you seem to make your guns like mine, simple but pure gold!!!
