the easier route would be A I think. I kinda like the dimensions I have, altho it makes for a longer bolt. Could do both, which would prolly be the smartest idea.

I'm keeping that in mind. I still want it to be strong enough with the venturi.

One thing I am worried about. Along with the shaft head snapping.

Yeah but it only takes 45 minutes to hit C.R. soo....

Anyways, you are almost better making your bolt out of aluminum if you plan on using the back of the bolt as a spring stop. This will also reduce the chance that the threading you have chosen won't strip out the back of the acetal delrin.

How would that help stop the spring retainer from stripping?

its 12-24 btw.

edit - on a completely different note (one not related to this build at all, just too lazy to make a new thread) is it possible to use a 'noid's exhaust gasses to power a ram? I'm thinking just a single acting, spring return 'cocker style ram.

Doppelganger is an old German folklore. Supposedly everyone has a twin and of they meet its a sign of something bad happening.

I mean if the back of the bolt is used as a stop for the piston, then you run the risk of the threading being pulled out of the acetal delrin.

I'd follow your delrin with a nut of some type for security.

So let me try and wrap my head around this (forgive my ignorance). You are basically able to use the MQ2 but you have to fabricate the bolt assembly right? If so, that's awesome. If someone could just fabricate an upper tube assembly so you could pop an MQ2 into a Merlin extrusion and have an Aedes, that'd be sick. Obviously you'd need a plug for the front of the lower tube too, but come on that'd be ridiculous.

That is pretty much EXACTLY what im doing, and that was pretty much my thought train as well.

also what's needed is a custom IVG, just using a 'cocker's one doesnt give you quite enough room for a frame. unless you use the spacer that it comes with, but that's almost too long.

and if you did this you wouldnt run into smart parts patent since you're not selling a paintball marker you're selling a kit.
