Building a reactive trigger...

Question: Where does the air for a reactive trigger come from? I need to know exactly where, I'm going to built a reactive trigger kit for my gun. Thanks for the help. (For those of you that doubt my ability, let me say that I have already built a new valve for my Model 98 that operates on 200 psi.)

The air for the RT comes from the blowback gas left over from the shot. Instead of just leaking from the back end of the powertube into the air, it goes into the RT hose and operates.

Post more info on your valve work!

Anybody who can build a valve ought to know how one works and where to tap in for blowback gas... I personally like using a hollowed out velocity screw, but on the 98 you're gonna have to do some drilling and tapping.

taping really wouldnt be too hard, its a soft metal.

I built the valve using my old one as a pattern, I just made the valve easier to take apart and used a lighter spring so it could operate on a lower pressure. I machined the metal on my lathe.

The reactive trigger can be attached in two places: In front of the valve where the velocity screw is and behind the valve where the rear bolt strikes. I was asking about this because I want to build it like Tippmann did instead of testing it myseft and messing it up a few times before I got it right. Thanks to all those who replied.
