Hello From New Member

Unread postAuthor: Air2theBrain » Wed Apr 12, 2017 5:47 am

Hi everyone, firstly i have to say thank you to all the contributers here. before i registered i spent a few hours reading many posts which was great, a wealth of information was everywhere.

It's easy for someone like me in 2017 to come along and instantly gain from the information gathered here, so again many thanks to you all and the creators of this amazing site.

I have a 600fps airsoft sniper rifle wihch was great fun to tune and everything, have had Tokyo Marui hi-cycle aeg's, GBB's, .22 pellet guns, etc but the springer was always my favorite.

I've always been fascinated by air, and seeing posts from everyone here gave me the bug to build my own, or rather gave me more inspiration than i had previously.

Now that i'm in my 40's i want to make an air powered blaster of my own, thats personal and has been built by myself.

I cleared out the spare room the other day at home and found an old nerf titan launcher amongst some other blasters, which was still standard, so after re-inforcing the tank, etc and putting a pressure gauge on it, i can now understand the pressures you all are working with.

Putting air through a small barrel at 40-50psi from a toy air blaster is something to wonder at, so starting off at 150psi is going to be very interesting.

I have a couple of projects in mind, basically a semi-auto airgun and a full-auto which i'm having a great time designing, a high capacity feeder for 6mm ball bearings.

I also have an old sceptor markerball which was sitting around for years, it has a semi-auto function and i think would be a fun project, but its one i would like to make a thread about to see everyones thoughts on what best to do with it.

Anyway this is an intro post and its getting too long, so hello and thank you to you all, its a pleasure being here.

I felt the same way when and before I joined, and feel the same way still! If it wasn't for all the creative users like jack and the mods, this site wouldn't be the same.

Many thanks for the replies!

I've been away for awhile so good to be back home and getting into things plus of course looking forward to the projects that have been on the side burner for awhile.

Hope your all well and will be posting soon. :P
