i dont think it can be semi. the propane doesnt give enough pressure to drive the pneumatics. the shot count with pneumatics would be drop from like 50,000 to 1000. it would take a lot of propane to drive the heavy springs. even if they are set light.

the amount of propane used in the combustion of one shot is very small... it's not like everytime you shoot flames are going to shoot out the gun and a deafening "BOOM" will come from inside the gun...


tippmann would not have developed this and introduced this technology to the public if it wasn't throughly engineered and designed to be safe... i'm sure some of the tippmann engineers thought the same things as some of you guys. "omg it's gonna blow!"

I am sure that Tippmann has thoroughly researched this to make it safe. I think the point that some folks were trying to get across above has more to do with the fact that it never pays to underestimate the power of human stupidity.

here's my concern: as a future oldschooler, in about 5 years will this new technology take over the world? will other companies make these guns, slowly killing out all of the hpa or co2 guns we all now know and love? i forsee a future in which we will be forced to give up our beloved 98's, a-5's, even angels and autocockers/mags. What a bleak future i predict...

This may be the dumbest dumb question. But 50,000 shots. Do you think they'll just make the tanks like 12grams? So companies can make money off the tanks.

The gun work by combustion on one side of a piston, the piston compresses air in a chamber that fires the ball. Just like a nerf gun except it uses propane instead of a spring.

The RVA simply changes the volume of the air chamber.

I'm a little upset that it's electronic but if I could cook with it too, that might make up for the need for batteries.
