my idea for marble mg mag

Unread postAuthor: mopherman » Fri Mar 09, 2007 9:28 pm

i thought that, maybe you could have a mag on the bottom of the barrel and use the vented air from your pilot valve to push the marbles up and into the barrel. think it could work?

I had thought of that too but the pilot runs out pretty quick..But then again...if you do it like that you'll have a closed system, so when the valve opens, air will be flowing from the mag back into the pilot and close the valve..

In theory it could work true full auto..but most likely, you'll end up with a honker....

I know how to stop that. have you ever seen the whole barrel assembely of an airsoft gun? the only thing that stops all the bb;s from flying out the barrel from a gravity fed hopper is the hop-up. pretty much, just slap a thin peice of craft foam on the top of your barrel right in front of the breech. also, this increases accuracy and range, due to the fact the marble is spinning in one direction AND it has a backspin. this spin actaully makes the projectile shoot more level and much straighter. try it!

yeah, in the very first part of it. just a little tiny square will probaobly do it. make sure its on the top thoug.........

try making a square the size of your marbles. that should work.

TEST before you stick it on your actual gun. dont want to mess that one up.... :-(
