pneumags (how exactly do they work)

I get the general idea behind the pneumag, but I'm still a little confused as to how all the parts fit inside the grip-frame (except with maybe the exception of the LPR if it's attached to the vert-asa), and how in all that the ram actually actuates the sear/rocker.

I've searched on AO, and the links people give when someone asks the question have lead to threads or forums where if that kind of info is THERE, then it's buried deep in other totally unrelated junk. I'd like a good, detailed, technical answer if y'all could provide it.

Thanks .

Btw, I'm asking b/c noxx is building me an x-valved pneumagrifle (essentially, I think of it as the hurricane of mags ). Anyway, back on topic and off the topic of drool-tastic marker orders.

The Ram fits in the top section of the grip frame, this is a single acting, spring returned ram. generally the top of the frame has to be hollowed out a bit to fit the ram. Set screws hold that in place.

The 2-way (technically a 3-way) valve fits in behind the trigger, or below the trigger, depending on the model you are using.

the LPR can fit just about anywhere there is room for it, so long as an LP line can be routed to the switch.

But in your mag rifle, Sir Brass, all of the pneumatic parts will sit in a custom machined block. I should have pics up very soon of Clearush's rifle and I will try to take a video to show eveyone the firing mechanism. It's going to be sweet!

Do QEVs lower the operating/working pressure?
