as you know the onyx has been announced... its a little different, they claim its not "spool valve" but i think their design is probibly the most omtimized way to build a spool valve. basically the news for the onyx is this pic of the firing assembly for you to ooo and ahhh at. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y132/hell5/IMG_0219.jpg
pic may die... its pbn

also here is an (ugly imo) pic of the ripper 3.

Yeah the Ripper is fugly, I don't know what they were smoking when they designed that. Looks like a milling job gone way wrong.

i think the onyx is mad cool. i want to see some bob long afermarket support and have a titanium shaft out in like a month.

allow me to explain the onyx.

take a tiny part of the timmy bolt, like enough to block the feedneck hole, but instead of drilling the in the bottom drill it through the back.

attach the ram to the rear of the bolt.

make the ram wider in the front, also longer

put the poppet valve over the wide part of the ram

put the air chamber on the outside (but inside the gun shell) a small ramsleeve

edit: they actually have it ram a cupseal valve..... which is a little wierd but not incredibly different from what i described...

The desing is similar to a spool valve but it uses a poppit. Pretty neat really. They released a video of the marq6 and shot it over a computer chrono. +1, -1 like nothing. Pretty fast too.

from what i can tell when the bolt goes forward it happens along with something else tapping/holding the poppet and releasing air. if its holding there really isnt a ton of difference between it and spool, but if its tapping im interested.

fred i have a friend who is gettign them for his team and might be able to hook a friend of a friend up with one a little bit cheaper....
