I can't claim this as mine, it's off the French forum, but I thought it opened up interesting possibilities - HERE

What I thought was interesting were the cartridges he's using to load the burst discs - I have to admit I don't know if the projectile goes in there as well, seven pages was too much to read this early. It occured to me it'd be really quite simple to build a bolt action with cartridges preloaded with burst discs and ammo and then have quicker easier loading.

Just a thought.

Looks like he's using the pneumatic parts from one of the Lego Technix kits...kind of an intriguing thought there.

I've also been giving thought to the idea of burst disk/ammo cartridges. To do it right, it would have to be a system engineered and machined to order I'm afraid...breech and ammo. Might be worth it though if something were standardized for the masses.

lol, I like the use of lego pneumatic parts :D
Not a bad idea at all.

If someone would take the time to read all that french and find out the exact working, please explain us the basics of this thing.
Arent those things there not just projectiles??
