Drum mag Questions Help!
Posted 16 April 2013 - 04:36 PM
So basically my question is, could I make a drum mag myself, would that be possible? It would have to work the with the Tacamo mag conversion kit unless there are other ways to make a 98c mag fed. I am not experienced at all with any of these things so I wouldn't know what to do or where to start but I was hoping you guys could help me out. If this was possible I would want to make the gun look like a Tommy Gun, but that is wishful thinking.

Alternatively RAP4 makes their box mag, it's basically just an inverted electro hopper though. Not actually a mechanical magazine. Hmmm I just remembered the ATS mag design (I think it was them). It was ridiculously complex, it basically had a little chain driven paintball conveyor in it. Somehow it must have been actuated by the cycle of the marker and it would life paintballs out of the mag. With a design like that a mag of any capacity could be made and there would be no pressure on the paintballs. Problem is that because of the wacky chain drive mechanism it wouldn't work with a 98 and a mag kit. You would need an ATS marker designed to work with mags of that type.
Lastly FN Herstal, they're actually a arms manufacturer. They dabled in paintball though to make their FN 303. Mechanically it's a paintball gun, they aren't marketed for recreational purposes though, they're designed and sold as less lethal riot control weapons to military and law enforcement. Point is they have a drum type magazine. I think it's only fifteen shots anyway though, so I suppose even if you could somehow adapt the design to a RAP 4 mag it wouldn't solve your problem.

They basically did something along this line when they made machine guns on WW1 biplanes. The guns were geared so that they would not fire when the propellor was directly in front of the barrel.
