Not my skills...its all Jim Stanton of Accu-Fab!

I'm the idea/assembly guy :)

Yes, they will be listed for sale - we will be doing larger and larger runs as we get guns sold...I already have an importer lined up for Canada ;)

Thanks!

Jim & myself will be doing *everything* we can to get as much exposure and performance information out there as we can.
YouTube vids are on the list - its a matter of getting video and uploading them once we've got guns built.

I will be posting more breech progress pics this Thursday.

Manny - The gun will indeed exceed 50 ft lbs in .25 - not sure about shot count at that point but I think Bob got *well* into 50 ft lbs when tuning for power.
With the 45cc reservoir I will have to see about shot count without pumping...we're adding 20cc's to the guns volume vs Bobs Millenium...I'd be really happy with two 50 ft lb shots with a lower powered 3rd follow up shot.

The great thing is since Bob built and thoroughly documented his guns performance we aren't just going at this blind - we have specific benchmarks that shouldn't be an issue hitting.

This was probably mentioned in the other thread, but could one tune it to get, say, 5 shots at 35 fpe or so?

I realize it's all guessing right now, but just a thought.

With a 25cc reservoir Bob got 3 shots @ 40 ft lbs...5 shots @ 40 ft lbs *should* be no problem, but we will have to see what the guns do when built.

That sounds promising. I'd buy a 5 shot; 35fpe MSP in a heartbeat.

5 shots at 35 FPE shouldn't be a problem with the larger reservoir.... maybe 5 at 40 FPE.... My gun got 51 FPE at 1800 psi, one shot and a backup, but the new gun will have a 45 cc reservoir instead of 28 cc.... The highest FPE I recorded was 69.3 with 42.4 gr. EunJin Points at 1800 psi with the RVA at coil bind.... LOUD and an AIR HOG !!! (1 shot, no usable backup).... so the valve is capable of moving lots of air !!!
