Unread postAuthor: fretmelter » Tue Feb 12, 2008 6:29 pm

But a year later mabey it will seem better and more realistic. And i wanted to know what u guys think. These were done in a program from google its free.

ok i will. the hammer in the back is powered by a spring. It hits a valve then the air in the middle chamber rushes through the valve and into a tube on the exterior. then that goes into the front chamber where a bolt is connected to the hammer so the paintball is loaded and the hopper is sealed off before it fires. And the air rushes through holes in the bolt, pushing the paintball. Then the hammer gets pushed back into place by air from a notch in the pin in the valve. Much like the bottom tube on a spyder paintball gun works.

yes i know how hammer valve works.

have you seen how a spyder gun works.

There is a slot cut out from the pin in the valve. This means the air rushes through the valve and then air pushes the hammer back through the slot.

go look at a diagram of a spyder paintball gun and look at the bottom tube.

It would have helped if you said that earlier....

Yes it will work you would need or lathe or you could go jsr style but its very nice hammer valve config.Not sure why the dudes ats pbnation didnt like it.

yeah...your right i should have that earlier. And they didnt like it cuz there were threads like mine popping up everyday and i think they got sick of it. so they started to tell people the design sucks. Just so people would stop posting them.
