It was a solid piece of 7075 1-1/8 diameter. . I had it drilled .812" 19" deep. I then threaded that end with a SAE J-Port and made a plug for it. I drilled and tapped the other end 5/8-18 for the regulator.

Thanks sixshooter, that is going to be a serious pressure vessel. Out of curiosity, why did you have it drilled .812"? Was that as big as they could go? Or by design? Who did you have do the drilling for you? I would be interested in contacting them.

Christoper .812" is the minor diameter for the SAE J-Port which is a 7/8-14 thread. I calculated the PSI rating using the thread size of 7/8". That gives it a working pressure of 4600psi. The plug I made has a o-ring to seal the tube before threads so that gives the tube even more of a PSI with the .156" wall thickness. You can find gun drillers about any where you live. We use a couple here in the Houston area.

Joe I'll get some pics soon. I just figured out how to use dropbox for pics. Right now I'm really busy between work and helping my best friend get his house back into a livable state after Harvey. I've spent the last 2 days sheet-rocking and tape and floating. He should be able to move back into his house tomorrow. We'll have his bedroom and bathroom ready so he can sleep again in his own home.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Wow sixshooter, that thing looks sweet!!! And its accurate to boot. I'm sure your proud of it and have put allot of time and effort into it....looks like it has paid off for you. How many cc's is the reservoir?

BTW, checked around for gun drillers and couldn't find any local...finally found one in California, wanted more to drill out the tubing than what I give for it :o. May try to find some others.....

Thanks Christopher. Most places charge a minimum and it's not cheap.

Ok I opened a postimage account so lets try it out.

Thanks Steve. I plan on anodizing it blue than hydro dip it with a see thru carbon fiber pattern.

Christopher it has 160cc in the reservoir plus the plenum. I forgot to measure the plenum so don't know how big it is. I lost some of the original size plenum do to a design change.

Today's 50 yard target. Not much wider than the 30 yard target. Still got some tuning to do and some other things that should help to make it more accurate.
