It’s easy to get off topic when AA gave us such a boring bullpup to talk about….
I don’t think there is any issue with making a 30ft lb semi auto. That is what the FX Revolution and Monsoon puts out. I think that gas tube designs would be even more effective as the power goes up. That’s what happens with firearms anyway.
If you want to see what has been done before with semi and full auto air guns, do a google search for the “Caselman .30 cal full auto air gun”. You’ll see how air gun manufacturers have made very little if any progress in the last 30 years. This guy made an air rifle design in his home shop in the 80’s that I would buy without question if it was available today. 125ft lb full auto .30 caliber!
I must confess that I have not been keeping up to date on my Russian YouTube clips. I do know they have some cool air gun stuff over there and they have a lot of cool bullpups in particular.
