Yeah, I'm sort of an armchair gun designer it seems: I like the thinking part better than the building part because I'm better at that. Course, I'm not necessarily good at it, mind you... :evil:

Anyway, I think SPG has a good thought: we need some kind of loading mech to go with it. I guess blowforward would be fine, but it would be cool to link the valve to the action. But I think you want them to cycle one after the other, so that might not work out so well.

SPG: yeah, I can see a hybrid coming out of this. Kinda like Galfisk's, I guess, except for maybe a bit more conducive to auto operation.

This is what the actual prototype construction entails, in response to Brian's PM comment:

Yep, and lots of it :D

*note to self, buy shares in epoxy companies*

Of course in my design right near the start of this thread, the valve and loading mechanism ARE linked.

Now that does sound like heaven, though I don't see quite how fluidly my two joys in life would combine :roll: :D

Is it me or did the whole forum become derailed when the "The wrong kind of pump" topic popped up? :P

*blasphemy*

Finally I build a design that actually has a good chance of functioning, and now I discover that some epoxy has leaked and the piston is now solidly fused with the portion it's meant to seal with, just feckin' brilliant.

:x

I'm starting to wonder if this idea really is cursed :?

maybe you could try buying some fittings and do it thats way, if it worked for BtB then it should work for you.

Nah, if I gave up the first time I screwed up with epoxy I would have stopped using it years ago - you just need the fortitude to take such disasters in your stride and be prepared to start over *sigh*
