My idea was constant air flow, regulated to 300 PSI. When the bottle is finished - I buy a new one (they're awfully cheap here, around $12~$15). I think I can get a pretty decent amount of shots from such a big tank, as I get about 5 consistent shots at with a 12g CO2 cartridge, 750-ish FPS. The ide...

Yes, I want the supply to be placed exactly as you can see in the picture. I am removing a part of the stock and placing the CO2 there (like many manufactured airguns do). I am thinking about maybe getting a short tube that will connect to the schrader valve. EDIT: How much pressure is the sodastrea...

I'm having a little trouble understanding so I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me over Skype before I place a $100 order.
Anyone willing to volunteer for 5 minutes? I will show you on webcam exactly what I need just to make sure.

I personally bought a pretty cheap one so it closes and opens easily with a knob (the red twisty one). I bet you can find fixed regulated ones on eBay, but they cost quite a bit more than that simple $15 one.

I personally love coaxial designs, I made my own gun a coaxial. I've also experienced a problem many complain on coaxial designs - that they are single shot. I found a really simple solution for that using 16g CO2 cartridges and a cheap CO2 regulator (2 bottles, 1 regulator for $15..). Assuming you ...

Is it a coaxial airgun? just asking... Yes it is. After finishing this gun completely (probably next week, when all the parts arrive from eBay), I plan on making a new bullpup, semi-auto with a QEV I bought. EDIT: Didn't see the edited post. I will take proper pictures tomorrow probably.. If you're...

MAN I love eBay! Just ordered some 6mm brass tubes since the smallest diameter I could find in this entire country was this 8mm and that was only because I found it from a scrap lamp post (go figure..) :roll:

Regarding the pressure, I am now buying a small compressor which will go 200~250 PSI If it's one of these, save your money.

Good job!

May I suggest the addition of a triggerguard?
I'm sure you'll find something to use..
Good suggestions, I'll see if I can find anything that looks good. Thanks! :)

Thanks for the kind words CS!

To jack:
I personally don't like thumb holes, that's why I went for free handle design. I really liked his staining though, I'll look into staining mine more or less the same tone.
