My latest gun incorporating some interesting features.
You'll notice that a 1/4" coupler replaces the common copper uptube. While you lose the ability to adjust the angle of the barrel, you get a VERY strong joint between the T and the elbow. This is for a bow gun so barrel angle adjustability isn't a big issue. Plus you can disassemble all the pieces for inspection during troubleshooting.
I use automotive brake line to build my guns. I used a 1 foot piece to build this one. Cool thing about that stuff is it comes with flanged ends. You can see how I used those to good effect on the BC breech and magazine connection.
Anyway, I guess that is enough ramblings on. If you have any comments or opinions on using the coupler for the uptube, I'd love to hear them.
How does it feed with the 1/4" coupling? I always thought that the up tube gave you more than just angle adjustment on the barrel, it also gave you a better angle on the magazine feed into the interrupter Tee (i.e., less than 90 degrees).
That could be a problem. I haven't seen any issues with this gun, though. You could replace the 90 degree elbow with a 45 and get the best of both worlds.
