Came across this and thought I would share: Youtube video

It's a prototype from who I believe is the engineer who worked on the Brocock Air Cartridge System that was eventually banned in the UK because of the apparent ease with which they could be converted into real firearms.

I presume there is no similar ban on these devices in Canada, is there anyone who knows otherwise?

It's a brilliant piece of engineering and machining.... but I see no mention of the performance.... A similar idea is being promoted in the USA currently by Invoaritech.... http://www.inovairtech.com/

Possibly, Brocock carts are based on Michael Saxby's designs and his patent for one of the designs looks like a piloted toolies piston: http://www.google.com/patents/US4531458

20 cartridges cost as much as a good gun.

Just the gun itself would probably be so expensive that no one would buy it, just an AI Stock for a powderburner cost around 1000$+

Not saying that its a bad idea..
