This is the start of my piston hybrid I need to get some parts like a accurate pressure gauge and few ball valves, but for now I rigged it up as a pneumatic.

The piston bolt washer set up works great but the front washer got bent when I first shot it, replaced it with 3 and now its good and put a better bumper.

Looking good, glad to see some more hybrid cannons being made.

A few questions:
1. Are you planning on having an isolated pilot valve for the hybrid setup? Not sure if those rubber gaskets could perform like o-rings. Although not crucial, 100% sealed pilots make it easy when it comes to fuelling. You'd have to epoxy all the nuts on the piston for a 100% seal as well.
2. What pilot valve system are you using for the hybrid; vented pilot or air spring?

I'm gonna copy the pilot you and SB15 have, I will isolate the pilot, I had to cut a groove into the rubber gaskets to let air. I put thread locker on the nuts to seal em off.
