Detent proof of concept

Unread postAuthor: Lockednloaded » Wed Sep 28, 2011 5:40 pm

The detent concept is an extremely useful one ITWOST, and with pistons, hybrid, and even piston hybrids becoming common place, they may be the new big thing. Their only problem is that they're pretty finicky to get working correctly. I've been toying with one for a while and made a little PBMG that hooks up to my pressure washer, well more of a burst fire gun. it's really just a mini cloud chamber with a detet, but it works.

I have to use a cam-lock to load in order to keep it air tight, so it's kind of bulky, but remember, it's just a concept

There's an oring sandwiched in the compression fitting. This gun may not last long, I just posted it to stir some discussion, but it may be a hybrid pretty soon. I just need an ignitor

A simple piezo cigarette lighter and you're good for 15x at least, go for it ;)

This thing works with PBs and 3/8" steel BBs... Though what seems interesting most is turning this into a hybrid

I have drawn up some plans to allow manometric fueling, I can get some pictures up after school today

@jsr, do you think it could arc a standard sparkplug gap? I have a 1/8" NPT one that I've been itching to use

What's the spark gap?

Hint: you can adjust it with a hammer ;)
