realistic looking piston gun question

Unread postAuthor: spudy buddy » Fri Feb 08, 2008 6:17 pm

well on real guns the barrel is on top. in a coaxial its in the middle. can't you mount the barrel to the pipe wall so it looks more realistic( for a bb gun). there is probably some major flaw but i can't seam to find it. you would just maby need to put sone kind of spacer between the barrel and pipe wall so the face can seal better but that's all i see.

please point out why this would/wouldn't work

The only trouble i can see is that the pressure would not be placed in the centre of the piston, maybe leading to leaks or a piston jam. The piston would be sitting at an angle when pressurised, this would work if the clearance around the piston was kept to a minimum and the sealing face soft enough.

I agree with Nova here, an off-centre barrel will jam your piston.

well on real guns the barrel is on top. in a coaxial its in the middle.


Not always true:

Assuming the stoppers were fixed securely and well aligned, then it should avoid jams.

it sertantly would be different and i've thought about it but i dont have enough brake line to make it. i've decided to go with a ball valve and not a blow gun but is a 1/4 better than a blowgun or do i need a 1/2?
