I see alot of potential for extraneous drag once the gun is played with and beaten up.

the design images are very nice, and i love the stock class variant. is this something you're doing for you, or will this be made available in small runs for purchase?

Spoke with Jim Masse yesterday about this gun. See, there's already a gun called the 'Falcon', which was a hybrid blowforward he developed. He was excited to hear about yours, and said it'd be okay to call it the Falcon, but suggested differentiating it from his with a color prefix like 'The Green Falcon'. My idea was to substitute a specific species like 'Peregrine' or something.
I know, I know, arguing what to call it is as stupid as it gets, but hey, I love the design.
My freestyle pro randomly decided to ramp in the middle of a firefight. I could have sworn I heard a tiny voice from the gripframe saying 'Rwarrrghrgrbl! More Blood For The Blood God!"

Castro, tolerances in the "extraneous drag" zones are quite generous, the sled will ride nice and loose, and the pump rods have enough individual play to allow for all sorts of mess. thats the general idea with the action, distributed rigidity and environmental tolerance, if that makes sense.
Dav, will be manufactured for sale in good numbers.
Tohri, if I'd ever heard of such a gun, I'd consider the name issue. AV-1 Falcon is it. I wont tell you what the actual company name is yet.
