the only problem is none of the pneumatic guys bother to chrono their guns, like an Sp93xx or a homemade gun...

I don't want to have to build a bunch of these things. Keeping prices very, very high keeps orders very low. Yes at it's heart it's just some pipe and other bits which only add up to $100 or so. That's irrelevant, how much are the parts inside an obsolete computer worth and how much did it cost new? The actual value of things is hard to put your finger on.

Back to reality, most of the time (and plenty money) was invested in the circuit design and PCB manufacturing. Had to buy a drill press and scroll saw for the PCB's as well. Wasted countless hours and materials on faulty designs. Had I known basic electronics to start, it would have been easier.

A safe estimate on time is 6, 60 hour weeks for 360 hours total. May have been more. Ask my wife, she saw the whole thing. Results from a bad week below, all these PCB's are no good. Pics of the whole thing coming soon. Another pic is a few posts below. As for what cost the most, time. $1.200 at 360 hours = $3.33/hr. $400 at 360hrs= $1.11/hr. R and D is expensive.
