design looks nice but if they use spyder internals again. its gonna bring it down. I have a TGR2 and it is to say the least problematic. Ive sent mine in 4 times to have it fully rebuilt cause the sypder type internals are touchy and i keep missing something when I clean it.
Personally will be staying away from honorcore until I know what's up with the milsig shenanigans going down. At least somebody's trying to bring a bullpup that may actually make it to market unlike the K1.
How about a breakdown? Isn't the magwell for the dmag going the wrong way?
Otherwise, very neat. Would love more details. How are the sections attached to each other? Why not attach the remote nub directly to the reg?
I'm working on a 3d printed body for my next ion bullpup as well, so I'd be interested in what works and what doesn't.
They are all held together via three threaded rods in a triangle formation running horizontally across the whole marker.
I'm not quite sure what I will do with the line, might even run it up the side, but as it stands it doesn't seem to get in the way.
And yes, the magwell is backwards which allows the hole to be as far back as possible.
I'll try and do a complete breakdown and start my own thread when I find the time
On the milsig owners page on Facebook one of the guys who run milsig was talking about possibly taking a bullpup pellet rifle and converting it and putting the heatcore in it. One of the guys also showed a project that got scraped, but it was a conversion kit for a mk1 or mk2 milsig.
Bullpups are cool, but the ones I handled in real steel was awkward for mag changes. Im sure it has to do with all the practice I have with AR platform weapons, but it doesn't seem to work well for me.
For the time being, if I want a limited ammo bullpupped, I think I'll just stick a 30 round tac cap on my B5.
I'm still around but scrapped my first bullpup iteration due to it being to complicated to manufacture cost effectively, I'll be redesigning it in the future.
Currently I am working on a prototype housing for thermal imaging and a secondary rigging for NVG gopros mounted to your dye I4 lenses.
I'm designing this around the Seek Thermal 37° camera. There is another camera on the market made by FLIR but it doesn't fit my requirements. The Seek has a 206 x 156 thermal imaging sensor while the FLIR is only 80 x 60. The flir has a tandem regular camera and with post processing it creates a superior image in the daytime by blending the two together. I plan on using this camera as a night time scanner for night games and seeing through clouds of smoke so the increased pixels of the Seek are much more suited for it.
This is my third iteration of the housing. It is being designed so that the metal case will fit iphone 6, galaxy 6 and edge 6. It will have silicon rubber inside for shock absorption and sealing. In order to switch a housing from one phone to another all I have to do is switch out the silicon internal mounts. I'm currently designing it with my Iphone 6 and only have access to samsung 3D models. I'll be 3D printing the prototype for the game and seeing how it preforms.
Here is a test video I shot at night to see the range, I'm really surprised by it's quality or $250. My friend is about 40 yards away. Well long enough for most paintball engagements. There is a bit of a latency issue with a stutter ever 10 seconds or so but I plan on using the thermal as a scanner rather than a dedicated sight.
I'll hopefully have test footage of this at Nov 13-15 paintopoly scenario game in Indiana but I have a lot of designing to finish.
This is also a much more cost effective for my personal budget if I decide to mass produce them. I'll make a dedicated post to this as it develops further.
