Is there any more information about the Vogt Pattern? The only data or launchers I've been able to find is the one made by DR in the archives.

More specific:

In DR's Spudfile post, he suggests a chamber that is at least 4 times the volume of the barrel/mag. I was wondering about using high pressure (500psi or so)with a smaller chamber.

Has anyone besides DR ever built one?

no it won't it has the same amount of air in it as a small chamber with less pressure but it drains the air to fast at 500psi.

I thought so. Just wanted to make sure.

In other discussions regarding the vogt design, it was thought that a good consistantly running vogt gun would need an industrial sized air compressor running full bore similar to what's needed to drive a jack hammer.

That means air, air and more air, and lots of it. Higher pressure/low quantity not as effective.

Almost all repeating cannons have a real thirst for air pressure.
The vogt pattern, as far as I can see, is basically hiding extra projectiles in some dead space, and empties the chamber in pulses.
