That's essentially how almost all modern GBB's work: The cycling process doesn't actually begin until the projectile leaves the barrel, at which point a negative pressure is created in the barrel, causing the floating/rocket/reed valve to close and transferring the gas to the blowback system.

Real steel is based on a similar system.

Neat video, though. Good to see that the system functions as theorized.
