AND.. Yakkman did this same thing to a Blade02 gun back in the day, although I believe he modified it to shoot micros.
Anyways, umm... would it be a smarter way to go with a craola barrel then PVC pipe? I mean I know fast decompresion makes it cold (isn't that how they make Nitrogyen?) and might make it explode... But how many times would I be safe to do this without it doing so?
As long as the PVC isn't under pressure, you're fine. By pressure, I mean compressed air in a tank made of PVC. If you're just using pvc/cpvc to make a barrel/breech system, then you shouldn't need to worry about the cold. The PVC will hold for more than enough time for the pressure to be released by the dart exiting the barrel.
Good luck, and brass all the way!
Well.. then I guess it didn't work very well, did it?
It snaped in-half during the war. Lol
[Not meant to be offensive!]
Gun in half is a similar problem I am encountering while making my own homemade.
And I sure hope this clip deal turns out to be amazing, because it LOOKS amazing!
Also, your plunger looks really heavy with the handle on the end of it... is it, or am I being deceived?
Great work though, it looks super solid and quite simple when compared to other clips and loading mechanisms!
It goes in the directory, just because it's cool. But it would have even a higher awesomeness factor if there were pictures to accompany the light (and by "IT" I mean the write-up; the gun is awesome regardless!).
1) CO2 becomes expensive (I'm not talking about nerf expensive, I mean expensive in the real world)
2)It's so powerful that the darts destroy themselves after one or two shots.
3)If someone got hit with this and the dart was intact... well it would be like getting hit with a plastic-coated steel weight at paintball velocities. Which is exactly what a stefan is...
4)Those cheap paintball markers have no way to change the air regulation, and the method used to release air from the canister is very primitive. This means that there is never any consistency between shots, AND you waste a ton of CO2 in the process.
5) So let's say you bought a really good paintball marker, and avoided the problems of #4... well now you just spent a ton of money on a product that is only going to shoot a stefan marginally farther. There is a limit to how far these things can be flung... and I think those limits are called physics.
But, it was totally fun to see foam fly that far and fast!
Also, there's a website that was dedicated to turning a cheap paintball marker into an airsoft s n i p e r rifle (there are these types in airsoft). He goes a little more in depth about the problems with these cheap markers.
Unconventional Airsoft - Gas Gun
I also made a variation on this beast... if anybody wants more info, PM me... this is a nerf forum, after all!
(enter your zip code, it will show up)
You can use any nerf gun to shoot airsoft pellets. They fit perfectly into this tubing. They're not very accurate, though, and even my little Tanfoglio could outshoot a modified nite-finder any day, both in ROF, distance, and accuracy.
Shotguns for the win!
Any other questions, you can PM me... since this is a Nerf forum.
EDIT: While I was typing, Yogurt posted... Airsoft is actually just a scaled down version of a nerf plunger/tube, as far as I know. It's not like the spring hits the airsoft round: a plunger compresses air behind the round and the resultant force causes it to travel down the barrel. Of course, I may be wrong. Does anybody here know for sure?
Blink, is there a link you could provide?
What about that new compressor from Canadian Tire. It "Says" it can inflate an air matress in under 2 min. It only costs 30$ and comes with 2 compressors and a docking station to re-charge it?
I believe that a typical air mattress holds at max 10 psi (probably closer to 4-6). A PVC airtank would need anywhere from 50-120 psi in order to make a pc cycle. I realize that these are just guesses, but nerf darts seem to like high pressure low volume tanks, since the darts have little mass.
So I don't think that a matress compressor would be powerful enough... but that would be nice!
*EDIT* Schveet idea devious!
I also think that a schrader valve would do a pc wonders. You could pump, or use an air tank/compressor. OR, even connect two pumps for SUPER DOUBLE MEGATON PUMPING ACTION!
And, if you would like some help, quasar, with some sort of tank, let me know... I'm pretty good with compressed air.
If you've got high pressure, then you need low volume.
If you've got low pressure, then you need high volume.
For a nerf dart, the high pressure low volume tends to work well, where as with a cannon, low pressure high volume works well.
As far as actual psi... I have no idea. In writing this, I realized I probabaly wasn't any help. Sorry for that?
