wow, picasso at work there^! Just kidding, they look like some cool designs. Just one question, on the TDS, why dont you just use the ball valve as the pilot instead of both a ball valve and a blowgun. The ball valve has better flow too. Otherwise they all look good (I didnt look at the hybrid though, as Im not really into them). Good luck for the construction.

naw...coaxials arent my thing..i failed at a tiny coaxial and i have no clue how to get it to work..

the 4 inch piston valve cannon is the one in the diagram...

btw any suggestions on how to make these better or better looking? im welcoming constructive criticism.

oh and i dont know if im allowed to mention this on here but i am selling my JME-45 (huge contest gun) without a barrel.. i was wondering how much u guys think a gun like that could be sold for.

some more random youtube things that are cool..maybe we could use this in a spudgun/gatling style gun??

The second one down the sniper gun, I sugest making the space between the pressure guage and barrel smaller, so In other words try and get the bottom part of the gun with the FE chamber as close to the barrel as possible, It looks a bit weak and hard to hold like that.

Wow, I have seemingly created a revolution in hybrid designs. This is the 3rd time my hybrid design has been used in about a week! :lol:

I was thinking about using it too, to get my steel hybrid up and shooting before the meet. Seems to work for everyone else. I got something else in mind though, so I won't.
