Hopper Loading Mechanism

Unread postAuthor: akaddis » Tue Dec 12, 2006 5:40 pm

Hello

Is there any way to make a hopper loading mechanism on a pvc spud "paintball" gun? I think i would split the barrel and reattach it with a T-Coupling. but then how would I regulate it so that no air will launch out into the direction of the hopper? some sort of Valve??? but it has to allow paintballs through.....

Thanks for your help
Andrew

You could use a ball valve but you'd have to open and close it after every shot. Or you could make a sealed bolt like on a normal paintball gun.

self explanatory
ball valves have the ugly possiblility of pinching.
make sure you find the right sizes to sleeve and obviously for the pb

Just use a 1" ball valve or something. Bring a paintball or two into your hardware store, ask where ball valves are. Then find a valve that paintballs fit loosely through.
