No I am not missing the point. I undestand that they load like a conventional shotgun, They however do not load like a normal paintball gun. And on a shotgun I am not aware of a door that must be flipped out of the way so it could be loaded.

Correct, but it is as close as you get.

The normal shotgun tube-to-breech travel mechanisms are not friendly to soft liquid filled things.

Gringo, if you get sick of it let me know. I'd be happy to pick up another for tinkering.

fwiw, I paid $200 for mine and overall I think it was a fair price. I mean, come on! It's a nelson - a nelson with mostly proprietary parts, yes, but it is serviceable with some effort.

Would there be any way to make it fully Nelson compatible?

Nope, the hammer and bolt assembly is considerably smaller in diameter, small enough to fit down the barrel.

I'm pretty sure an extended bolt would be the easiest way to fix the gun's breakage problems. You'd just have to make it so it still feeds reliably while pushing the ball all the way into the breech.

Maybe a bit of a curve on the bottom, if it feeds like I believe it does.

What about the powertube? Isnt it some stamped metal or brass?

The powertube is steel where it attaches to the cupseal, and on the outside of the valve there appears to be a brass tube that screws onto it to extend it.

Hmm, thats not as bad as I feared, I seemed to remember it being some very cheap pressed metal.
