Any suggestions would be welcome.
I just finished my "contribution to NH yesterday!
Same thing, tho my pump was broken so I externalized it, made a removable PVC stock (coupler)
and made nested petg barrels.
Nice work though.
I plugged the pump, but had major leak issues so I gooped all the connectors, and replaced the old, cracked vinyl with newer stuff.
Also one more thing.
Did you replace the vinyl tubing? Mine was opaque and white stock...
Now, when I pump it 5 times, it shoots 5 feet. I think its an issue with the pump handle, as when I pump it, it makes a hissing noise. Ive triple checked all the connectors to the pump and the tank, there are no leaks.
Any suggestions? ive plugged the pump in all ways possible, short of emptying a tube of goop down the back of it.
If you put the gun back together incorrectly, you may have a hard timing pulling back the trigger resulting in a slower pull. Internal pics would help.
Ok will post some.
Here is the pump
Here is the trigger mech
Here is the turret.
Here is the sealed airtank.
Sorry for the bad pics, I have like a 4 megapixel camera.
If it does, I will not buy it at all. Huge waste of 40$. Buy a chainblazer or rototrack.
On the plus side, this thing will have a great ROF, obviously, and the chains look like you can connect them, making a rain of darts down on your target. With screamers, pretty damn intimidatin.
I named my LongShot "Cutthroat Bitch", after the character from House.
Yea Cutty is really bitchy.
Thinks everything house does is bad.
When he said that he was still at the hospital at 3am to meet a hooker in his office.
Anyone tried Linerider? Similar to this. You build a track for a miniature sled, and see if your wild creation will keep it going.
WOOT 100th post.
Any advice would be welcome.
I know it isn't a great gun, I just think that's a bit excessive.
Thanks for any help.
Now that I put it back together, I pull the handle, it rotates, but when I pull it the rest of the way (the last 5 6ths of the way) the spring/plunger doesn't release.
Im assuming that it is very similar to other pushpull guns so any advice would be really welcome.
Will post some internal pics.
Where do you guys get it.
Also, the very little amount I have is very tight on my darts.
I plan to use them in rototrack chains.
Is the rototrack strong enoug for them to leave the barrels?
EDIT. I checked ompa's mod. CPVC will work.
I get mine at Home Depot. It's like 4 bucks for 10 feet.
Are you sure your not thinking about PVC? CPVC is white, not grey, and is very thin. Barely fits stock darts.
here is a picture of CPVC.
If you are right, then I stand corrected, as I have never been able to find any CPVC at Home depot.
Barreling, added range, comfort increased, size reduced.
Ive been working on this for about a week now.
When I got my rototrack, I immediately realized, due to the strong pullback needed, that it had great potential.
I hate chain's guts though. After doing some searching around, I decided to put CPVC barrels on the rotation mechanism. Thanks to Frost Vectron and Ompa for some Ideas.
Here is how I did it.
One nerf rototrack
Four 4inch pieces of CPVC
a stronger stock spring (same length EXACTLY as the stock one)
A lot of your favorite adhesive.
1 soft goopy o ring, that fits on the front of the plunger tube.
Dremel with small cutting bit (not circular)
Here is your conventional stock rototrack, courtesy of nerfcenter
First, take the goofy looking chain cover off and discard it. You won't be needing it anymore. Next, look all over the gun and remove all screws. No caps or pieces to pry off, nice and simple.
Here is a picture of the correct internals to serve as a guide to re assembeling it.
Take everything out.
Remove the plunger rod and wrap as much Etape as you are comfortable with around the plunger head.
This will increase it's diameter, therefore it's air output.
then, take the plunger tube and your dremel with small bit. Take it and widen the hole at the front of it.
(thanks to ompa for showing me how) do the same with the rubber piece covering it if desired.
Next, take your desired spring, and cut it exactly to the length of the stock one (I used a thinner one on the inside of it.)
Slap it on underneath it, ontop of the holder piece
Next, take your O ring and glue it ontop of your plunger tip. This will improve the air seal.
Then, take the large orange rotation mech and your glue.
Put glue on the grooves where the chain goes.
Then, put on the CPVC, and move it around to align it with the tip of the plunger.
Allow to dry.
Next, take the shell of your rototrack.
You have to chop it down slightly to make room for the CPVC.
Cut it to look like this.
Now, for the final step.
Take a piece of foam of any kind and size, and glue it on to the armguard.
This will make it more comfortable and ergonomic.
Reassemble it as shown in the top picture.
Then go out and have fun.
It shoots at least 55ft now, so im quite happy with it.
Hope this has improved your rototrack
Not to sound stupid, but how does this gun work. I don't own one and haven't heard much about it.
Anyway, nice job!
It's very similar to the arrowstorm and the chainblazer, as you pull the handle back 5/6ths of the way to prime it, and pull the rest of the way to shoot.
It has an auto rotating turret. Its pretty rare, not many people have it or like it.
No, I don't think that longer barrels would help, as the rototrack is tiny.
it straps onto your arm. Im very small for my age and it barely fits me.
It's plunger tube therefore isn't huge, so I don't think that it has much air output.
Thanks for your suggestions guys.
they have range, and the at3k has a good rate of fire.
The maverick is the most overrated gun on the face of the planet.
Everyone thinks it is cool and tries to be gangster by using it.
5 minutes here though, those people will realize they suck.
Good job though attempting the straw mod. I tried, and could not get it to work.
Welcome to NH.
if you keep the turret, there is 6 extra shots on the 3k and i'm not really sure about how many on the 2k.
(Im talking airtech by the way)
I use my modded LS with a switch shot max integrated for a primary, and my ppk'd NF for a secondary.
The AT3Ks come in twin packs, while the recon is obviously by it's self.
Both are 19.99 at TRU.
I remember reading an article long ago about the advantages of an AT3K. The AT3K really may be the best all around primary to carry around. While reliable springers (like the crossbow) are great, if you miss, you can be in a tight spot. The AT3K's auto-rotating turret does a lot to help this. It also gets great range. Pretty soon I'll be posting my version of the "one pump" AT3K that is so awesome it's almost unfair.
Ill look forward to that.
I attempted your truly awesome SSM mod, but failed, so I integrated it into my LS.
Works like a charm.
Back on topic, I didn't know that the AT3k had an auto rotating turret, as TRU's description made it sound like a manual rotating one.
