I haven't fired it yet in it's present configuration.  Will let you know.

It is a Sheridan XTS semi-auto.  Out of production for several years now.
This was a factory refurb I found for $29US.  You can find them on eBay
every now and then.  The XTS has a nice front handle that I'm using for the
elevate pivot (after some excellent machining by Frank).  I used headset
bearings and cups meant for a bicycle for the pivot to ride in.

I learned a few things on the T34!  Also, the T34 was designed to get the
full 10 degree elevate allowed by the rules (the T34 can actually go to 12
degrees) which required a more complicated design.  I didn't have that
requirement with this tank.

I'm building those today.  Will post more pics later.

One second rotate.   ;-)
