    Thanks for the explanation. I don't see how that could work for this application but I don't know everything...like I think I do.

    For years my dad had a sign in his shop that said "Quick higher a teenager while they still know everything" so I guess you never grew up. Lol

    Some photos of one of my rail guns. I think Jerry Stiller said he made the original prints, but I got mine from Joe Kubon. I made changes on the second one. Like Mike said we find ways to make them suit our own needs.

    I think it is better to have your base and top as low as possible. My stop for the front vertical adjustment is not a pinch bolt. Push the black knob forward to loosen and pull back to tighten.

    This is my first model.

    The carry handle in the middle is also a stop. In the bottom side of the top is and adjustable spring loaded delrin button that would operate on the handle.
    The two delrin buttons had jacking screws from the bottom for adjustment.
    I have more photos, but not on the net. I also tried tooling balls in place of my round delrin buttons. Didn't see a difference. My last model had the sighter cam adjustment on the LH side to make it quicker to adjust. The big windage knob was internal LH thread internally. The windage rod was pinned. I had better luck with the barrel vee block with a delrin bushing between it and the barrel. I'll see if I can find the other photos and will try to get them on the net.
    Nick Marino in South Texas has my first one and a gentleman in Canada has the other. It was a fun build, but very time consuming. I used one of Jerry Stillers drop port and a Shilen barrel.
