Do you have access to a chronograph? That would pretty much quell any disagreement on how effective these are. Also, I noticed that the new flywheels aren't sitting quite in the centre of their housing. Would adding a spacer to the post they're on further decrease vibration?
you cannot rear load this blaster unless you changed it to a single barrel per turret. the air comes in from a single hole in the back then goes through a little manifold system and comes out at the base of each dart peg.
Well that's no fun. I guess it might have the potential to be the air power equivalent of the quadshot though. I might have to pick one of these up if that's the case.
How much shell work would it take to make this thing rear loading? It looks like there's a decent amount of space around the two non-firing turrets, but would you be able to load all four barrels easily from the back?
The 4b tank would take a higher pressure to achieve, so in order to fill BOTH tanks it would take quite a bit of pumping, also, I'm not sure of the difference in tank strength, but you could risk blowing the salvo tank.
I completely agree that it will take a lot of pumping, and I could be completely wrong in saying that since the big blast has a larger volume it will have more air flowing to it than the Salvo while still having the same pressure.
Again, this isn't really my element but it's one of the principles that I used in making my panther arm cannon
#1, Yeah. It will. Just plan on pumping it quite a bit to fill both tanks, and if you don't set up some type of way to switch tanks, I'd imagine you'd damage the big Salvo tank when trying to get the BBBB tank up to pressure.
Pumping up the 4B tank with the Salvo already at pressure wouldn't be an issue since air always moves from high pressure to low pressure. No air will go to the Salvo until it and the 4B tank are at equal pressure.
