SO this is an idea I've had floating around for some time now... a mechanical cyclone. The cyclone uses a spring which keeps the piston pushed back (towards the player) and a burst of air forces the piston forward, and you know the rest. Well my idea is the opposite of that, I utilize a spring pulling the piston forward and a linkage rod that runs to the back of the marker so that the main bolt pushes the piston back to force a ball into the chamber.

Heres some pics of what I've roughed up so far.

all those pics didnt upload.

So the idea sounds interesting but I have to ask the big question, WHY? What would be the advantage of mechanical vs air?

Yeah. It seems like a kinda cool idea, but the cyclone works pretty well already

The advantage...none really. You could do the blender mod and it would actually work though :) Its just somehting that I've never seen done and I thought it was cool.

yah the pictures where giving me a hard time, but they loaded finally...dont know why you cant see them.
