Not yet. I need the bolt to come in from the machinist, and to make about 3 parts.

I'll post results once I test it.

Any of you have any experience with 3 way solenoids you've found to be pretty fast? I'm throwing around some ideas on minor design changes and may end up using a 3 way solenoid, but I'm not interested in something that's gonna take 10 ms to switch to on. The datasheets I've seen only say things like "15 ms or less".

Somebody over on the automag forum had a bunch of MAC 43 series noids for sale, that were 3 way instead of 5 way. Here is the link:

That's excellent. I love how damned fast those MAC 43 series valves are, and they're small enough that I could actually fit 2 side by side in the grip frame with minimal work.

That may just be the way to go when I decide to make a run at the valve I've designed for this thing, which is dependent on if the bolt system works.

I've had a couple of delays due to working an absurd amount of overtime and not having time to send money to the guy I've got making some parts for me, cs900, who I owe a huge amount of gratitude.

I'll be sending that out today to get the rest of the parts made, then I just need to order an MQ2. That's about all I need to finish it. If that works, then I'll probably buy some merlin extrusion, re-do the body, buy a different board, new grip frame, and start work on having my valve design made. Of course, that's after I post a vid to brag about my greatness.

A co-worker of mine asked me recently why I designed a paintball gun, so I gave him the brief history of it, which some of you may find interesting.

It started out the summer that the Emag was released. I was disappointed with what AGD did. I thought they could do better with it, and innovate more. So, myself and a group of guys from Warpig's Pigchat designed a ram driven, sear-less automag (doesn't that sound a lot like the Freestyle in functionality?).

Then, while wanting more efficiency from my Autococker, I got around to designing a new valve system. So, I abandoned the mag-based design for the new valve, which I discovered would work better in the top tube. So I designed a gun with a sleeve that slid around the ball and the valve opened up directly behind the ball. This looked great on paper, but certainly had some issues.

My mind then wandered over to thinking up a better loader. That's about when the Banshee came into my head. The more I got to thinking about it, the more I realized how much time could be taken off of the cycle vs. other markers. It snowballed from there.

No, nobody can have it! It's my brain child.

As for how it feeds... I'm not at a place where I feel like publicly disclosing how the loader and bolt system work together. They are very much working together, though.

Did I say end of May? Yeah, that was a nice thought. Life happens. I'm thinking mid to late June if things go even remotely close to as planned.

You still looking for a three way that works really fast? Talk to a local distributor and for MAC valves and give them your specs. They can come up with a price and modification number that will correspond to the noid that you need. Otherwise, I am told by the Humphrey representative that a standard CRCB-0051W will function as a three way if you block one of the ports.

Yeah... selling them... nobody would buy it in its present form, nor would I let them. It's kinda... ghetto rigged. If this works, then I'll begin work on a new body for it, so I can incorporate the valve I designed instead of the MQ2. I do not have the resources to produce them. Even if I wanted to, it would be ungodly expensive. It'd cost me probably $800 per marker, or more. So, selling price would end up pretty damn high. The only chance its got is if another company becomes interested and either wants to back me or work with me on producing it themselves. But, who knows, if it works and someone wants to pay $1200-1500 up front, I may be willing to do small runs.

Spitlebug... on the 3 way noid, I've been told MAC has done a 3-way version of the 43 series valve, which is what I'd end up using if I can. I know I can fit 2 43 series valves side by side in a grip frame with a little work. No need for a tray. The valve is only 8mm wide.

This delay is killing me. It's not just a waiting game. I've sent money off for machined parts, then stock must come in, then work must be done, then it must ship back to me. As soon as I have something more, even if it is just results of a feed test, I'll post about it. I'm still hopeful that I'm 2 to 4 weeks away from the first shot being fired.

Question: why are you using a WAS Excalibur board. I'd think that you'd at least use the pandora Rmod, E2, or a Zero-B board. However, if it was price holding you back on that, then explain no further.

I got it for $20. That's a good deal. I don't feel like spending over $100 for a board.

I've also contacted Damon about a UTB, but without response yet. I know he's busy, and I can certainly wait. I just needed a board that can drive 2 solenoids. Also, I know that the WAS board is allegedly able to run a 5v 4W solenoid with no problems. I can probably run the MQ with a capacitor, but that's what I've contacted Damon.

However, I may pick up an e-cocker soon enough. That or see how cheap I can get a E2 or zero-b with grip frame. I'm not sure what they usually go for.

Yeah, I haven't heard from Damon lately either. His plate must be pretty full at the moment.

The WAS will be good for starting this anyway. It's trigger programmable w/ plenty of power. However, when you want to go for speed it's about worthless unless you get some serious bounce going on (which I expect you aren't expecting to have).

Oh, I can give it as much bounce as I want... I've got a spring controlled trigger assistance mechanism designed that should fit in the frame.

However, for serious speed... I won't be testing it in semi. I also don't expect to reach the maximum ability of the design with the WAS board. I'll be ok if I break 20 with it, but I'm looking for over 30. Once I get a real board in there, then I'll push for double that.
