Currently, I am designing a homemade. It is a magazine fed, pump action (modeled after Boltsniper's FAR). It will run off of regulated CO2. I have everything worked out except one thing. You see, I would like for the valve to be a semi-auto type of valve, which will allow for fast follow-up shots and be efficient with the CO2.
My question is, is there a way I can construct a semi-auto type of valve that will do this? I saw Dr Nerf's valve and that is pretty much exactly how I want my valve to work, however, his valve just seems to big and bulky for what I am trying to do.
More detail: The homemade will be designed to shoot 5 paintballs simultaneously at around 250fps. It could probably shoot those big Stefans as well. Currently, I have a piston valve (courtesy of Spudfiles). Having a bit of experience with that, I would have to release the trigger fairly quickly to give the desired effects and preserve CO2. I prefer to conduct follow-up after the shot (any of you with shooting experience will know what I'm talking about).
Any help would be appreciated.
