Re: Confused. Cylinder chamber to barrel ratio for compressed air.

Higher pressure will always give better performance, you can use smaller chamber to get the same volume, and probably smaller valve, just that everything has to be rated for that pressure, that's why I stick to 150psi, materials are easy to get hold of.

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Stripped the old BFG, fitted my homemade QEV as the main valve, and a new Normally Open trigger valve, first test shots are very impressive. :shock:

Re: Blow forward AEG nozzle... Why it didn't take on?

From what I am reading Blowback is just added recoil to give a more realistic feeling ?

Re: New spring powered airsoft

Getting the loading mechanism linked into the charging mechanism has been a headache but it is getting close. 004 (2).jpg Charge/load position, block on the charge rod moves about 80mm then hits the rounded piece on the L arm as it only needs about 20mm movement to move the plunger to the load posit...

Re: Canada prohibits spudguns over 20mm

is that 20mm AND 10,000 joules ? 10,000 sounds like a lot of energy.

Found something, firearm over 20mm bore, so it would have to be classed as a firearm first ?

Re: Canada prohibits spudguns over 20mm

Well this is going to be interesting, can't find anything yet, but as far as airguns go this is the law as it stands. So over 500fps is ok if below 5.7 joules. In Canada, most pellet, airsoft and paintball guns are not legally considered 'firearms. ' Only those guns capable of shooting a projectile ...
