Electro-Pneumatic Revolver by PVC Arsenal 17 build log

Check out this interesting project by PVC Arsenal 17.

For those who were wondering, I’m still alive, but I am kept extremely busy with school work. Two grad. classes (one mech. eng., the other applied math), two advanced undergrad. classes (one math, the other mech. eng.), and the senior design course will keep you busy!

Unfortunately, due to my extremely busy schedule, I’ll be posting here less often over the next few weeks, and I’ll be basically impossible to find on IRC and at NerfHaven. You can email me if you want to contact me.

    Thanks for the mention, Ben. Also thanks for reminding me what I have to look forward to in the coming years…

    My EPR project is rather close to completion so I’ve made a new thread for it in the showcase: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic,p,310599.html#310599

    I look forward to seeing the progress on your next prototype over spring break or summer. I’m about ready to call it quits after I try the “shotgun” design I mentioned. And if I recall, I never finished explaining how it worked. I’m imagining an “elevator” which is essentially a length of barrel. It would move down so that darts can slide in from a linear magazine tube, then move back up inline with the barrelfor firing. My hope is that the force of the magazine spring being applied from the rear will reduce the crushing effects present when force is applied from the side. Certain conditions must be made sure of, and there are still problems to address, but I think it has potential…
