I'd think with this setup, you'd need to change the firing system completely. Maybe have the 'arrow' strike a poppet at the end of the stroke...
But if you're using a string to carry a hammer to strike a poppit, how is that different from using a spring to carry a hammer to strike a poppit?

I think the aarow gun is needlessly complex, and bugs just haven't been worked out.

I would be more interested to see a launcher built just to use the string to launch the round, with no compressor in between.
