Automatic bb bolt system

Unread postAuthor: Cole » Wed Jul 06, 2005 2:26 pm

I had this idea, it utilizes an airsoft gearbox for the bolt system but taking out the piston so it is only the bolt, then the peg on the gear would be used to put a new bb in the "breech" and activate a switch to turn on the sprinkler valve. Here is the link to the animated 3d model I made of it, http://www.uploadtemple.com/view.php/1120685209.gif sorry the resolution is so bad, when i converted it to gif it really made the resolution bad. By the way if anyone would like me to make a 3d model of their design, just hit me up on msn, cole_bie@hotmail.com.

So I think I will need one of those mini airsoft guns, they are like $25, and a bb barrel, wich I have, and a sprinkler valve. The hardest thing will be fitting an air fitting into the back of the bolt, and making the front the right size for pellets. Also I will need a custom clip since I am using pellets. The bad thing is, I have no way to make these custom parts since I have no access to any good tools, especially metal working tools.

Oh, well the airsoft gun already has a motor and stuff, and I can get one for about 10 bucks. Like I said the only real problem will be fabrication due to my lack of tools. I will figure something out though.

It would shoot faster maybe but not harder. The power of an airsoft gun is determined by the size of the piston not the power of the motor. Although a more powerful motor could drive a more powerful piston but once you replace the piston and motor you pretty much replaced the gearbox.
