The mechbox works under the laws of compressed air creating the propulsion of the projectile. Air is compressed by the piston being slammed forward by the spring and concentrated by the air nozzle behind the BB sitting in the hopup chamber. The idea with a mechbox is to have zero air loss anywhere in the box so that compression can be had for the highest value and to remain constant. If there is air loss the compression suffers and will be translated to the BB by loss of FPS, inconsistent trajectories and overall insufficient performance.
