Roboman: Sweet, I will definitely keep that in mind when I go to build this. Once again, thanks for the reference!

ShaNayNay: I'm actually going to use the Supertech 9000 shell I finally got a hold of! I looked a lot more into the thread that rego referenced, by Doom, and I'm leaning toward going that way. Doom used a combination of a QEV, a three-way directional valve and a pneumatic cylinder to cycle the bolt. It took me a little while to understand, but now that I've got it, I really like the set up. That being said, using the Hornet trigger system looks to be a lot easier to build and work with. Wish you the best mate!

Roboman: Those look great! I assume those are metal, finished with some sort of white spray?

Shmmee: Of course, I'm building this for longevity as well as not-kill-people-with-plastic-shard'ity, hah :) In experimenting with the gun you showed me, did you ever try the hand tank/regulator combo? I'm curious what the pumps to shot ratio was.

Draconis: The regulator should prevent the inconsistency, more or less, I thought?

Once again, thanks for everyone that has put in their input, its been great!

I'm really excited to see these two posts, this gives me a great starting point. Thanks shmmee and rego for that, much appreciated.

A quick question - just because I'm not a fan of the bladder style tanks, do you think it would be possible use a rigid back pressure tank such as aluminum with a regulator attached? Or do you think it would be inefficient due to a long priming (or pumping) time and a low amount of cycles (shots fired)? If hand-pumping a rigid tank wouldn't work, I may have to consider using an air source such as a HPA tank.

I just finished gathering the materials for an extension spring SNAP, and for anyone like me who is looking for the specified spring (9.75" long, .5" wide, .062) but doesn't have a Menards close by, I was able to find the spring at Ace. If I'm not mistaken, it was #64.
