Opus revolver

Anyone trying one of these out? If so would you share your thoughts on getting the velocity up on it. Once I start work on mine I'll post some pictures and videos of what I'm doing to get it up to a useable velocity. Thanks again

I love the concept, but the velocity seems like it would be an issue ... And loose a lot of the advantage of FSR ...

If you have a way to get the velocity up, it seems like a good price ...

The disclaimer about the FPS being sub-240 FPS makes me think this is just a gimmick. Kind of like that goblin single shot pistol. Seems like a good idea but in reality there’s better options.

Not in the. 68 revolver style the bb gun part hasn't got the umph for 68 on its own it will take plenty of modding to get it going. Valve and hammer springs is a starting point. Then I'm going to try to open the airways. Hoping that's just enough. Worst case is a new valve design how ever a project none the less

I won’t say it can’t be done but the real problem with these valves and .68 cal is volume. Due to the layout inside the frame, you’re extremely limited in ways to add valve volume, which is why no one has really successfully tuned one of these for .68 after all these years.

I'm taking some ideas from air rifle guys it's going to be a combination of several things.
It keeps my mind occupied
