Ah, much better :) still has that faint ghetto air about it but very well made, kudos for seeing the project through :)

How about some accuracy tests?

Will do accuracy tests as soon as i get a fridge compressure.
By the way would a small fridge be fine to get a compressure from? Thanks.

half the size of a normal fridge, like a bar fridge or one that fits under the bench top.

Awesome now, over 9000 times better with a nice scope mount.

I have one suggestion to finish up this gun, I'd recommend building a check valve inside the QD and remove the ball valve. The destruisezier has one. All you need is a cut down and modified schrader valve body, and a valve core with an external spring. The spring can then be removed for zero cracking pressure and to make a perfect tiny check valve.

Would save you time and look nicer :P

I LOVE the Bi-pod and rail additon. I only have two comments. The first is really unimportant and is only my opinion, but anyway, I kinda think it would look better in Dark , natural, stained wood color, or in flat or gloss black, instead of that teal-ish color, but it's your gun. Well, a camo scheme would look killer too, but you can disregard that. Also, what is the point of the ball valve in there? I understand perfectly how coaxials work, but I don't understand the need for a ball valve there... Does anyone have an explanation? Anyway, I want to congradulate you on a truly fine and clean build, this bady minus the schrader valve would pass easily for a true firearm. (Notice I said firearm, not gun, this is a real gun, however, it's air-powered.) This is one of the coolest guns on Spudfiles! Congrats!!! :D You've inspired my to try my hand on something similar!
EDIT: Also, what does the L96 stand for?

Yep, I'll get a photo when it's pulled apart to make Des-2.

You can probably get the schraders with external springs at gas stations. Just trim the spring and you have an ideal check valve.

the ball valve is there so i can keep it connected to the compressor. Instead of having to attach it for every shot all i have to do is open and close the valve.
Its called L96 because its supposed to resemble a L96.

nice cannon man. I love that rifle as well. I'd love to have one and snipe soda cans like 300 yards away.

yeah, I was thinking about the reason for the ball valve last night, and then I realized that you have a quick connect attached to it, not a schrader. Also, any chance of damage shots?

I have nothing to add really.
You might want to sand the carvings some more, maybe paint the chamber..

It's far from ghetto Jack...
It is put together with a lot of thought and it is more than obvious it's supposed to resemble the L96...

It has some rough edges but nowhere near ghetto...
