Will this firing system work?

Unread postAuthor: PaRaSiTe » Sat Mar 18, 2006 1:16 pm

Im making a paintballgun-style BBMG as shown in the below. Me and my mate made this firing system with the vortex disk in mind. It would probably be made of wood or metal.

Does it look good? And will it work? Thanks in advance :D

It seems to me that the gas will not allow the BBs to pass through the small hole in the airline since gas is coming out through there as well.

Why the vortex disk must not be more the 1"?

i think it will work if it does not jam
i remember learning the area around air flow has a lower pressure, that might suck some bbs in

most likely i am wrong

So what do you think would be a good firing system instead of this one?

Not using too much gas and being fully automatic is a must, but I also would preferably like it fast firing and powerful (don't we all!)

You want your air supply to come up threw the BB resivor so it "kicks up" the BB's. If you blow the air across the BB's you wont get as good as performance or ROF. In your design your gonna have to create a "vacum" strong enough to move the BB's from there resting postion. A vortex block BBMG would be better for this application.

Ok, thanks all.

How easily do vortex disks get jammed? And what should I make them out of?
