Its probably semi, but if it works its nice nonetheless.
Power looks like a mousefart though.

It sounds like he is using a bike pump.
So let him get a proper fueling system and see again.

Fueling? Its pneumatic.
You mean feeding?

It was at the lowest operating pressure (wich is 20 psi). At 40 psi, it obliterates the paintballs and send them to there maximum velocity.

It sounded like a mousefart because of that and that the toilet paper was too small for the cannon.

Fueling, feeding, pressurizing ... what ever.
A bike pump is simply to slow to give it the needed punch.
BTW fueling...this valve style could work on a hybrid as well ... I think.

Post some clear, close up shots of the gun, some internal drawings and explain what of the gun make it full auto...heck, even semi-auto.

Now demon, I have to tell you, those spitball shots were a pretty embarrassing demonstration of what you billed as a fully automatic paintball gun.

After wowing over some photos, I had a professional photographer tell me some years ago "You wanna know the difference between my pictures and ones from other people?......I don't show off my crappy pictures!!"

The point is, not every photo or video is really worthy showing. It would have been better to wait until you can get some better, more impressive video with paintballs.

either get a CO2 tank or a compressor.. and the best idea is to get ammo that can be reused

these days there are quite a lot of semis out there so it just doesn't impress anyone so much.. so if you make a gun that has poor performance and specs (like very long overal lenght) people won't be as impressed as they would have been 2 or 3 years ago...

I trust you when you say that the gun cycles but I don't expect it to be very powerful... semis and esspecially various versions of blowforward bolt have inherently lower performance than guns without flow restricting objects in the barrel

also think about the overal design and its utility here... does the gun have to be so long? don't end up with somehting that has a 50% worse performance than a traditional gun while being twice as long and akward to operate..

again... that would have been considered 'OK' 2 or 3 years ago - but not now.. people expect more that's all

Its the reason why I havent posted my QEV gun yet, which is already like a year old. I just that I want to make some nice damage pictures before posting. You'll never get a second chance to make a first impression!
