Finished Bolt Loader/Magazine

This is the same design as From_Hamsterdam used in his semi auto a while ago. It works well and is consistent which was the goal. I'll be attaching it to a QEV which is piloted by an (already finished) modded semi auto blowgun .

The magazine attaches to the bolt with rare earth magnets which makes it really fast to reload. Right now I have a paper clip which stops the cartridges from flying out of it. Just pull the clip and your ready. I made the spring out of music wire and it's zigzag shaped.

I think that it deserves a good, well-written how-to. :D But, Its one of the most creative bolts I have seen. VERY GOOD JOB!

Wow, that is very well done! I tried making that out of pvc a while ago, I was using pvc and it snapped after a while. Yours is sooo neat and well made, I am very impressed. Are you bothered by the flow restriction? The few times I was able to make mine work it was very low power.

Nice.

Here is from_hamsterdam's semi with diagrams.

Like I said it won't be semi auto (he said the flow wasn't great), I just have the same bolt design.

No need for a tutorial, looks pretty simple after looking at the diagrams :wink:
