wouldn't surprise me

the daystate way to go about it is very clever but not all that complicated in reality

its just a mechanical valve, solenoid to act as the hammer, a capacitor discharges to power the solenoid, a pressure sensor/chrono are linked to a microprocessor to determine how much to charge the capacitor and a micro switch to act as the trigger

anyone of you could build that circuit in a month tops if you wanted - its not hard

until they ditch the mechanical valve electronics are not that much of an improvement over a mechanical gun

once they ditch the valve though then it will be something special, ATM they are using electronics for is to replace a hammer spring and trigger sears .

just my opinion of course
My silence is not weakness, but the beginning of my revenge.
