Milling a stock can to be low pressure??

Would it be possible to mill a stock can to fit certain bodies with milling? like an octane nxt body has milling on both sides. If one were to leave just enough of the material of the can to cover the milling on the body, would there be leakage? Would it make in impact on pressure??

it might be possible to bore out a little material on the inside of the can, but a body like the octane would not support a milled can.

only a solid body shocker can support a milled can.

The only can that supports bodies with milling is the NDZ can made for the SFT's, as they have orings that seal the inside of the can off from the milled holes.

The inside of the can is full of air to complete the firing cycle, if you cut a hole in that can body and the gun is milled, air will come out unless the can hole is sealed off.

No, you would need to make a new can not modd a stock one. You would need to make an oring gland around the windowed area and there PROBABLY is not enough material to get away with it

Edit.. I have a stock can ready to mill for a dark body...just need access to the mill now
