Also, its a foam ROCKET. Not a dart, it can sail through the air like a BBB arrow, which helps give it better ranges, and the added weight from the etape should help a bit too.
Bah, I forgot to compliment you on your mod, nice work!
He designed it to be clip fed, but due to lack of proper equipment he has outside of his school, he cannot build one.
A singled magstrike compleatly defeats the purpose of the magstrike, regardless of what ranges you're getting. You should at least put a hopper clip on it. But other than that, cool stuff.
Pics (taken from RyanMc#s rearloading AT2K Thread:
Its the center gear between the barrel stubs with a wavy-like pattern.
From the following picture:
1. A glue gun
2. Some flat, hard, plate or surface, I used a CD case
3. A box cutter blade
4. Two segments of your airgun barrel material cut to the size you want your darts, make sure that they have straight, right angle cuts. I used Schedule 80 cpvc I had lying around, which has a VERY loose fit on my darts, and cut them to 1.5' and 1' segments. You can easily use OMC petg if you wish.
First, take your blade and slip it so it goes about 6/8ths in between the two CPVC segments as shown:
With the little bit of CPVC that does not have the blade covering, you can use to allign and straighten the two barrel pieces.
While tightly holding the two pieces of CPVC with your fingers, making sure not to off center the barrels, hot glue the bottom of the CPVC barrels and press it tightly on the plate or surface your using:
Ignore the cuts on the CPVC, I took this picture after I was done. You should waight, 10-15 seconds before letting go, this will let the hotglue expand the distance of the CPVC slightly, allowing very little wiggle room for the blade for a smoother cut. BTW, it LOOKS like theres a lot of space between the blade and barrel stub, but there isn't, I was pretty sloppy using a table saw and got some of the edges off the CPVC, but the barrels are still cut with a perfect 90 degree angle.
Now draw a cutting guide on your CPVC like so:
and use it as a guide for your dremel to get this:
And your done!
How to use:
Its actually pretty simple, just slip the foam through the opening until its flush with one end of your mitre box. The place one finger on each opening, on top of the foam, and lightly stretch it to help straighten the foam. Then, Place your blade on the slit, and cut!
I've learned that minimizing the amount of swipes for each cut should be minimized to two quick swipes to ensure a perfect cut.
At first when I first cut my first batch, they looked slightly off, but after heating my blanks the were or was near perfect. Hope this helps!
