Project Nerf Cocker
Posted 25 June 2003 - 10:30 PM
I am working on a gun that is electric, 2 solenoids, 1 open/held closed, 1 closed/held open. The open one closes a split second before the closed one opens. there is also a small chamber for the air without draining your tank. the tank is 4'' PVC with a 2 way coupler w/2 ball valves built into the coupler which will be built into the tank. One of the sides will be hooked to the gun for caonstant air, the other will be a stem valve inside an endcap to fill without unhooking your tank and so you can also close it off if you get a leak. The other ballvalve could be shut so you can take the tank off with the tank still pressurized. It would be hooked up behind the the solenoid valves but against your shoulder like a spyder via a cheap form of a bottom line hose made of heavy rubber hose.
The trigger will be homemade out of pvc and will work on electrical relay that is house right above the trigger, the batteries will be housed in an aluminum box that is use for electrical switches.
Now the pneumatics. They are still in design, but they are going to be hooked up on the back for cocking with a similar setup like the autococker, but slightly modified, These would be activated by the cocking rod hooked to the trigger, like the original. The shells are going to be ejected from the top and fed from the bottom via clip that i am going to design and keep secret. But when the bolt gets to a certain point a spring loaded flipper will eject the shell from the top and the bolt will close again putting the next shell into place.
If you havn't noticed yet im a tech junkie that loves mechanics and ballistics. Anyway coment, critique and qutestion, i still need to fine tune my plans before building. See ya.

Instead of having the dual solenoids, I wanted to do like a two way, for regulation. This is different than the regular auto cocker.
First off the cocking rod is longer, kind of like the 3way rod.But when it is fired forward the first inline regulated air fed valve is closed, and then the vale that will fire the gun is opened. When the ram arm, and back block come back, the process is reversed.
The tank has also been modifed, but i dont feel like explaing it, it is just much simpler and will have to be refilled every 25 rds with a foot pump, but that is a consevative estimate.
This project is coming along nicely, but will slw down slower than its already slow pace because school is being added to my plate of heaping stinking crap they call life. OUT.
