BigFoot: Does the paint make the slide difficult to pull back (because the portion of the gun that it slides on is thicker), or is there not really any noticeable difference? Also, what grit sandpaper (or what Dremel bit) did you use to get such a smooth look?
Is there any problem with the dart's transition from CPVC to brass? If not, I think my redesign of my shotgun concept might work. Since brass shells are expensive and time-consuming to make, I was going to use CPVC ones.
CPVC in the shell lines up with the brass in the barrel almost perfectly.
Jamming while feeding darts, or jamming while being removed/inserted from/into the gun?
I just modified my longshot... and now my longshot clips jams more then before the gun was modified, does anyone know what the problem is and what i can do?
Either way, make sure the bolt is pulled all the way back to move the clips. Also do not slide the bolt back more than one time per loading unless you modified the system to be able to shotgun-load darts.
No. PETG or brass (17/32" O.D. brass). Since you can't get the latter, contact OMC for some PETG tubing, although I have yet to see a breach made out of it.
Is there any other material I can use for the new barrel? I can't get my hands on Brass. Would any PVC or CPVC work for the barrel? and if so what size?
Also, please check the post dates. If the last reply was over a month or two ago, then try PMing the poster or searching instead. Just a heads-up before you get flamed.
Omega: He's new. Noobs make mistakes. I told him what he did. I'm sure you've screwed up before, too.
Chill. It was a dumb question, but calm down.
What, you can't pick up a fucking spring? Are you a cripple?
If you are not careful, a few springs may pop out, like the one used to hold the scope, but nothing vital. Just remember where all the parts go, and it is a very easy mod.
P.S.: The ' key and the shift key are located next to your right pinky. Use them.
This thread was one month old, and you contributed nothing. Please refrain from posting things like this just to raise your post count, which is no mark of seniority. Also, please use the Spell Check when you post.
I just bought one of these and I used this mod. It seems to work pretty good, I can't wait to see what it can do in a NerfWare
Why not integrate an At2k or At3k into the front gun and just use the front gun's pump as a means of pulling the airtanks pin? Sure you'd have to find a place for the pump but it's possible.
Sounds like something Falcon would do, being the turret junkie that he is... However, the range and power of not only one, but multiple quickly-reloading back-up shots is something that would make this worthwhile.
I just have two questions, what’s the point of the tightening rings and where can I get them?
You just have to make them by crimping the brass slightly at certain points. As far as I know, there's nothing to be bought except for the brass.
Also, I doubt that they are going to go back and add a second mag to the package. They might make the move to stock stores with the spares, but I wouldn't bet on it until we get some more info.
CaptainCC is full of shit.
I don't think anybody has mentioned this yet:
Guy claiming to already have one to sell. He clearly can't, any thoughts from people?
As a side note, this is the same guy selling a Crossbow for $200 (http://www.amazon.co...6128144&sr=1-17)
On a more cheery note, the release is tomorrow. And all Wal*Marts have the RC in stock? For $20? Kickass.
For a better-fitting spring, cut down an AR-15 buffer spring available here.
Just plug the valve. Also, you must not have gotten the point when I told you to stop using chatroom abbreviations, which is strictly forbidden by our Code of Conduct.
So ur sayin that i dont have 2 have a stupid plug OR clamp?
What do you mean abbreviations? isnt OP and abbreviation?
anyway, thanks for the info.
Has anyone ever thought about spray painting the magstrike? that would be sweet!!
An OP valve is a small hole in the pump, called the over-pressure release valve, that is plugged with hot glue to attain higher pressures in the air tank. "Flush with the white piece" means until the surface is even with that of the white piece. Also, it's not a good idea to revive month-old topics with questions often answered in the text or that could easily be figured out, or to use chatroom abbreviations (I.e.: u for you, l8r for later, etc.).
What do you mean by OP valve?
Also, what does it mean when u say, "Flush with the white piece?
Edit: Slug beat me to it.
Nice drawing. But how big will the gun really be?
Will multiple darts fit in each shell?
The gun will, ideally, be no bigger than Boltsniper's SCAR-N. If I incorporate the plunger tube into the stock, then I could theoretically shorten the gun by around 20cm, and also eliminate some durability problems with an attached stock rather than an integrated stock. That little stub you see sticking out of the left part of the drawing was going to be an attached stock, but I scrapped the idea and forgot to erase the part from my sketch.
The gun will have shells, but I don't plan to have multiple projectiles per shot. It will be a slug-gun type weapon, like I said earlier. In order to fire off multiple shots, I would need to involve sabots or something of the like, and that would only be as a proof of concept attempt. Multiple pellets wouldn't go very far anyway, so it would almost be pointless for wars that aren't fought in buildings.
I looked over your post again and realized that I mixed up the word "travel" with "gravitate" because there is a typo there. However, there is still a problem with your design. The size of your dart and the size of the breech can be perfectly identical, but if the edge of another dart even gets caught between the rim of the breech and the loading system, you are going to have some major problems with the firing because now there is a bent-up dart that prevents the breech from closing and getting a good seal. That either means that you can't fire, or the pressure that is lost while firing is too little to propel the dart out of the barrel.
Also, I don't know whether you are going to make a true breech-loader or a magazine-fed shotgun, because they are definitely not the same things. PM me a picture and I might be able to understand and help you.
If you look on the howstuffworks page mentioned in the earliest couple posts, you will see that there is either a bump or a ledge on the carrier that stops the shell from sliding all the way back. That stop is placed carefully in a spot where only one whole shell can be on the carrier at a time. I think this could be the solution, becuase I myself was considering it for simplicity.
P.S.: For all of you out there who are either working on or want to work on a Nerf shotty, P.M. me. If there are enough of us, we might be able to walk each other through the design and construction phases.
I was going to try for 100th post in my own forum, but that would merit reprocussions from Piney for double-posting. (Although this is technically the 100th reply.)
Back on topic:
I am working on a scale-dimension draft of my blueprints on a 2-D CAD program, so I will probably be done with almost all of my design work and detailing by the 17th, accounting for the time I need to take out for homework, school, and studying. I hope to see blueprints from as many other contributors to this topic as possible, so we can all build different, yet hopefully effective, models.
What website did you get the ID and OD measures from?
