Hmm, not that I would buy one but I would be interested in getting my hands on one to see the design for myself

I would have called them something else. In order to keep this G-rated, i understand why you went with "string of pearls", though.

I don't know what that is.
Is it safe to Google it?

You have to be kidding me

Tippmann had to know what jokes would spawn when they designed that into the marker

Wonder where the design inspiration came from......

That's what I'm wondering. It seems like a pretty weird way of transferring linear force along a curved path and would generate a lot of wear and friction, but I'm not a mechanical engineer by any means. Does anyone else have experience with these sorts of mechanisms? Does this sort of thing pop up in other applications? Automotive door handles or locks, perhaps?

^Actually a pretty brilliant idea using tactical ana! beads ( there I said it) to transfer the energy.No kinking or binding like a rod or spring would.
I doubt it would have significant wear if they're made out of a self lubricating plastic like delrin.
Kind of an inspired design imho

Here is what I'm wondering, why not use the pressure coming out of the bolt assembly when the marker is firing. A bit of hose brings that to the rear of the marker where the cyclone piston takes over from there

I mean I'm not claiming to be an expert on this thing by any means but all this setup would need is attaching a house to the exhaust side of the solenoid and then run the original cyclone in the back of the marker, very little modification needed

Maybe tippmann has some ulterior motives??

Let's hear your best... Or worst, conspiracy theories!

^I've tried running a Cyclone of the QEV/exhaust port of an Ion (Stryker)
I'm definitely not an expert airsmith, just a tinkerer but I couldn't make it cycle properly
I'm sure you could run a ram system independently of a mech trigger 3way to run the Cyclone but I personally haven't figured out how to do it and still keep it compact
I've been trying since my 1st boxmag project to run a mech box.
The actuation of this gun gives me and idea on how to run a microswitch to run an electro boxmag though
