I agree whole heartedly with using a siphon tank. That's how we got the best consistency out of ours when my team used them. Backbottle+Siphon+Smartparts barrel = can't go wrong.

Especially the older 1" dia one piece smart-parts barrels. I had a friend who used one like that back in 1989 or so and it was freakin accurate at distance.

I ran my old VM on a siphon from 1992 to 2000.
FPS, cycling, and cold weather were never problems.

Ran like a dream EXCEPT for effeciency. I was getting around 400 shots per 20oz.
And on humid days, I would be ENVELOPED by the vapor cloud. Pretty damn funny... or so I was told. I didn't think it was all that funny since it seemed to make me a big fat target.

That pretty much was my experience building them. You've gotta tip your hat to their basic reliabilty though. TONS of folks who would be lost with a 'cocker in that period used them with very few reliability problems.

Since we're discussing "raincovers" over on another thread, my friend Fran had a PMI III with a first generation Smart Parts bbl, and with a buffer on the rear action cap, the sound of the ball slicing through the air next to your head would totally drown out the sound of the shot. he would lay in the deep grass and blend in, picking the unsuspecting off...

Anybody here make buffers out of wetsuit material?
