Ok, just wondering if people can share their knowledge on gel magazines and how they feed.
Basically the motor in the mag runs whenever the gearbox motor runs.
But it’s at a set speed, so if you change from 18:1 gears to 12:1 or put in a dual sector gear, the gels will still feed at the same rate. That would mean some strokes of the piston will be on an empty chamber?
If the magazine motor feeds faster than the gearbox cycles, then wouldn’t that mean it’s chewing up gels trying to force the into a t-piece that’s got a backed up queue?
I know the AS version uses a spring that turns the wheel to push balls up whenever there is a space (and the hard balls don’t squish like the gels)
So is that the basis of gel blaster magazines too?
The motor is hopefully fast enough to feed and keep up,
But not powerful enough to crush the gels if it feeds too fast.
Sturdy enough not to burn out if powered but stalled?
Love to hear your thoughts and findings
