Hmm, that design relies on both springs to operate, doesn't it? It wouldn't work without some flexibility between the barrel plug and the piston. And the simultaneous adjustment of those spring strengths would determine firing pressure.

I say, Jack, I think it's topologically identical to one of your proposed designs, isn't it?


Edit: how do you do that tag for the url?
Edit 2: thanks Rag!

Like this:

Code: Select all

You don't put any quote marks around the link - and you had a space in your link.

So Jack, any update on your gun utilizing that 'massive' 1.3 inch piston?

Still sitting on my workbench, I may or may not finish it while I play with other ideas in the meantime.

Here's what I have so far, finished piston and main body with port cut out and piston seat installed:

Just as it was in the above photo, I've abandoned this line of thought and decided that preloaded cartridges are a better idea.
