In Topic: Rotating Valve

This is a theory thread.
-Sure.

Try it and tell us the results later.
(two interpretations)
-Ok, I'll shut up and not ask the community for help.
-When I try I will tell you the result.

I made a quick post when a person was working on an idea, and it made Galaxy613 say,"That makes sense!" and TRY it.
-I am looking for a response that makes me go "That makes sense!" and TRY it.

He came out with pretty good results (not verbatim instructions)
-How are the plans verbatim? "adj: "corresponding word for word to the original source or text: a verbatim record of the proceedings."

but he used my IDEA instead.
-I'm looking for these IDEAs.

If you are actually trying this, say that in your first post and say, "I would like suggestions in helping me do _____"
-I should have done this.

I apologize but I took some offense from this and the caps lock.

Kid Flash: It's one hole for 1 tank at a time, but yes I'm pretty worried about the seal. I can't find any 2ks and the big piece of plastic just serves as the pressure chambers. Air is actually released by the hole in front as the insides rotate.

You're thinking too much.
Ompa used a paperclip at the top of the magazine to keep darts from flying out. It probably squishes the top dart a bit, but increase the surface area and the effect is minimal.

The NTS uses a breach where brass slides over the inner barrel (the opposite of the angel breach). The wings can simply pop over the outer brass when the breach is closed. You can also do this with a longshot.

200 mph = 293 fps
20 mph = ... 29 fps

My big snap at 220-240 fps easily clears 100', but foam balls do not have much mass to them and deal with much greater air resistance due to larger surface area. 75' is very believable.

You say that you get no pressure and that you hear no leaks, and for sure the pump is working.

Then where is the air going?

In Topic: New Style Plunger

Here is the plunger I used in my big snap. It's similar to a standard plunger, but due to it's length it had to be rigid instead of floating. It was the lightest plunger I possibly get.

The old plunger looks smaller, but it weighs 3.6 oz vs 2.6 oz. Right now the sliding plunger doesn't seal as well as the gasket because I originally used a steel washer to keep the O ring in place and this severely scratched up the brass. When I replace the brass I could probably get just as good a seal.

There is very little friction between the O ring and the brass.

Once it's all sorted out I expect a good range boost.

Unfortunately I can't get velocity data anymore. The school suddenly woke up during my live presentation of the big snap and now they're no longer allowed on campus.
