Semiautomatic Action Theory
Posted 12 July 2004 - 04:08 PM
so im thinking a system with a piston to strip the round and shove it into the breech, pushed forward by pressure from the tank and recoiled by a spring after pressure is released. resting state of the piston would be in the barrel, held there by air pressure, with the trigger releasing a valve to fire the round and release the pressure, causing the piston to recoil to a point past the back of the magazine, where another valve would be triggered to release more air and force the piston and next round into the breech.
nesting/telescoping cylinders seems to be the best way to go at this so far. ive sketched some stuff out and ill scan the sketches and post them as soon as i get a chance.

Use the search function if you havn't already, blow-back has been attempted a few times, its just a matter of regulating the harsh pressure released.

i did a search. the <sarcasm>ever-useful</sarcasm> search function returned nothing for blow-back, blowback, or blowback. theres a reason i never use search in these forums...
ive looked at some of boltsniper's stuff on his site, and the pictures look like great ideas, but everything on his site is broken :/
