The Boss

seeing as how I am making the body, bolt guide, and back cap from scratch and have already made the vertical adapter from scratch I think this can go in here

wasnt going to post this up until it was finished but I figure having a little motivation never hurts

anywho I ll just copy/paste my VW post;

something I started about 4 months ago after seeing wiswarsniper's mech ion (vespa I belive) started an itch in my brain that only chips could scratch

my overall design goals...

- minimalist aesthetics, no milling, nothing extra, pure sexy function
- I want this simply to be a tube that shoots paintballs
- pneumatic actuation, because **** batteries

Ill let the pictures tell the story, if you have questions ask

Using angled gauge blocks is cheating. You're supposed to wing it by eye.

Looks great so far.

it will have external macroline like a normal marker

however once the sidewinder regs out the HPA it will travel to both the dump chamber, as well as the PAVO-3 via internal hosing and fittings

so there will be no ghetto looking external cocker style hoses or lpr's to ruin the aesthetic for me

the sidewinder will supply the LPA for the entire operation of the marker

most of the hoses and fittings I am using are rated for 150 psi max I believe, and I have made the dump chamber of the marker quite large to keep the pressure low as I dont really care about how efficient this thing is, I just want it to shoot smooth and quiet

Awesome job. Could you possibly make a minimalist exo body for an ion? Maybe from brass?

dont suppose you could tell me how you made the female portion of the ASA, like inner diameter, how far in the treads go and if you tappered to a smaller diameter in past the threading? I'm working on a similar part and just want to know if my thoughts/reverse engineering is correct

Cant remeber the size of the sealing bore and I single pointed the threads, they are nps as well so no taper

It was simply made as two bores then I did the threads, I didnt even put a thread relief in because Im a lazy bastard

Depth for the threads was .5 iirc

I'm curious how the feedneck is going to fit on this. It doesn't look like there is going to be enough material along the top to provide enough for the neck threads to grab.

Im going to try using the ccm no pro pictured, its using SP feedneck threads, I have the rough dimensions for everything modeled, I am certain I will need to notch out the feedneck bottom so that it clears the bolt

its a nightmare making a gun so small but its what I want, so blah

Cutting the bottom of the neck was the only thing I could come up with as a viable solution.

I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this thread. Awesome work so far Panda
