Good job though

i like that color the v/a turned when heated... speaking of which, count you just have cut the top and bottom sections of the expansion chamber then welded those instead of welding half of it to the v/a

well.. i guess there's been too many people on the site ... :( .... you exceded your bandwidth limit and now i can see it .. heh .. any chance you can post the pics on this thread ??

you gunna drill that barrel for porting?

you gunna drill that barrel for porting? thats a horrible idea, it could frey and cut through balls. besides i dont know what kind of effects that might have on a barrel that long, it may lower velocity it may raise it (also lower/raise efficiency) but i probibly wont make much difference meaning its probibly not worth the risk. btw what size is that tube? if its like .75 inch tubing that ball probibly wont do anything but roll down the barrel.

umm i dnt wnt 2 have porting on the barrel. NO PORTIG = LOUDER NOISE

and i think the VA tured that colour cuz wen the black anodizing was heated the colour left nd al that remains is the stuff that comes out when anodising (so my science teacher says) im trying to find a paint colour close to it.

the reason i welded the bottom of the x-chamber to the VA isso that i want it to be as small as possible.

as for the post pic her quesion. i cant figure out how to do that. HOW DO I DO IT???

and im thinking of getting a domain and get rid of the bandwith limit.

and th ID of the barrel is just under 18mm (for all u americans that are stuck in the imperial system thats about .69998", gosh keep up with the time switch to metric.)

1. dont buy a domain... use geocities.
2. .699 whatever is close enough to .7 and that is going to be huge for paint.
3. porting a really long barrel with oversized interior probibly wont do anything because:
a. its long, meaning it has probibly had plenty of time to expand all of the air.
b. it is oversized bore, meaning the air will go past the ball instead of using the ball as a seal and will make less noise.

so i doubt youll get "more noise" (if thats really what you want... which still confuses me) from NOT porting it. you might get more noise from a shorter, better sealed barrel.
