Looking great man. Clean over/under design, finished w/ nice paint, no unnecessary fittings or bulk...

8/10 easy (minus a point or two due to no stock and red dot, personal preference)

overall great build sir :P hats off to ya.

Another thing, if this piece of plastic can be imported, it would be a great addition
Haha the stock.. I was thinking about one, but Im running quite low on funds now so it might have to wait.. Its in the list behind the proper red dot reticle sight..
A how-to on how the paint job was achieved would also go down well on the forum methinks, I like the urban camo effect.
The paintjob is ridiculously easy actually.. Seriously just paint a black base, then grab a leaf from a tree at your house, hold it over whatever your painting and spray... the whole paintjob was just that.. completely winged it.. If your worried, practice on some cardboard or something, its super easy I promise..
I want to use Co2 though and impliment some sort of RELIABLE semi Auto feeder?.
As long as you can make a feeder thats powered by gravity it should be fine.. thats what Im running and the reg setting takes care of the "auto" part of it.
Im concerned though that liquid co2 will flood into the blowgun though as the bottle will be laying on its side as I'm pretty sure those Soda Stream bottles dont have an Anti- Syphon in them.
Hmmmm I dont really know about this.. Wouldnt the gas just expel from the tank at the pressure you set it to on the reg? I dont have any experience with co2, but paintball guns all have their tanks laying down..
Would be good if someone with more experience with co2 could shed some light..

[/quote]It looks effective, but only one way to find out.

Yes yes its coming.. Im quite drunk right now so its probably not a good time for me to be playing with an air rifle.. but ill get there...
with the semi/full auto basically you just turn up the reg to a pressure that its filling the space between the tank and the barrel at the speed you want to shoot.. then you can just hold the trigger.. I havnt done a great deal of testing with this as im running low on ammo, (waiting for some in the mail)
but I will definately do some full auto, semi auto, and single shot video when I get the bb's Im waiting on..
the beauty with the single shot method is that you can just open the reg a little, get it up to pressure then close it.. the air space in the area between the tank and the barrel is only enough for one shot, so the efficiency is awesome.. well at least in my eyes it is :)

Hopefully Ill see a few of these designs with peoples own mods/tweaks popping up on the site.. I really am happy with what Iv achieved as it is what I set out for from day one (a couple of weeks ago :P )

Thanks for the compliments, they are much appreciated

It looks good, certainly functions as you would like though I have one major problem.

I don't think it's a trained marksman therefore it isn't a sniper.

Nor is it a sniper rifle, sniper airgun would suit it's design.

From memory inonickname made a how to for button rifling if you want to potentially increase accuracy.

Other than the name you did a very good job on it.

Yeah they are epic. I didnt get his name though.. They all seem to be pretty good guys though, I went down again yesterday for something and was served by a different guy and he also gave me trade prices :)
Yeah a stock really would be good and would help with aiming, but like I said earlier, its on the list behind a red dot sight :roll:

Is it just me or is the incidence of PUI statistically higher for Aussie members :D

form my tests rifled barrel doesn't help much with solid projectiles.
