Here's my question - what happens, both stock and modified - when the belt advances to one of the endcaps? Does the thing dry-fire, or is there something to prevent that?
Does it not fire when it hits the end of the chain when stock?
Does it skip firing when it hits the middle "end cap" in the chain when you use it with the modified chain?
Details, man. We need more details! It will never be enough!!!
Seriously, I already addressed this. It works just fine. It lines it up, shoots air into it, and moves on. It treats it the same as every other shell.
So now I'm having problems with my Vulcan. For some odd reason (yes everything is lubed up, and put back correctly - even the gears I mentioned earlier), the plunger tube tip doesn't retract enough, and still holds onto the shell just enough that the cogs can't rotate and advance the chain. I've tried doubling up the spring that pushes it back into place, changing that spring, relubing everything, the works. Doubling the spring puts too much force and makes it not seal with the clips (for a long and perfectly sound reason). Replacing the spring helped, but it's not enough. It still doesn't go back far enough. Relubing did nothing as far as I can tell.
Also, g-force, I'm finding that your ranges are heavily unsubstantiated. I'm getting about 15-20 feet flat, no ARs.
Also, the ranges are going to be the same whether the gun is electrically or manually fired because of how the gun is designed. The motor cycles and cocks the gun, the same as the charging handle, and the trigger fires it. But because you're holding the trigger down, it just keeps firing. Like a firefly or mav, hold down the trigger and cock it. When it's pulled all the way back, just fire it. That's basically what the Vulcan does in full auto, except the motor pulls it back.
I'm not putting anymore time into this right now, until I get a reply back from Hasbro. I'll be watching for your mythical flying reptile (titan, vulcan, alligator), g-force.
