Dude, what the hell are you talking about. That's the worst trailer for a game I've ever seen.
I'm not that interested in Gears of War, but I must admit that it has the best trailer I've ever seen for a video game. The music is what really does it: Gary Jules, Mad World. The same version of the song was used in Donnie Darko to great effect.
Donnie Darko = best movie ever
Gears of War = awesome
Donnie Darko + Gears of War = total crap.
If you guys haven't seen the gameplay for this game check it out before watching that trailer.
So far it shoots about 300' with the mega missles, 50 pumps with the bike pump, and a 10 degree angle.
How did you measure this? I'm sorry to say that nerf guns with bigger tanks and better valves have not acheived 300 feet at a 10 degree angle with heavily weighted nerf micros. No offence, but I am skeptical. Try shooting it across a football field (300 feet).
Nice job, nevertheless. Looks pretty sweet.
You pump the large tank, pull the back ball valve to fill the small tank, close the valve to seal off the large tank from the small tank, and pull the front valve to fire off a shot. Then you load another dart and repeat the process. At most you would be able to get off a dart every 2 seconds.
Nerfer34 (a while back), you can also get check valves at almost any hardware store. The ones I've seen look slightly different, but the purpose is the same.
Your rear trigger might not work, because the pressure might push the trigger back if the seals weren't quite perfect, but the first one is a good design.
1 pump from a bike pump into 4 feet of 4" PVC will make less than 5 PSI. There is no way in heck that you can get 200 feet with a ball valve homemade with 5 PSI in the tank, even with a tank that big.
Any airsoft homemade is going to work very well compared to manufactured guns. A nerf gun could shoot a BB 120'+. Hose handles won't let the air out as fast, but the valve will be comfortable to hold.
I finished an airsoft homemade with a hose handle and it works very well.
He's right about the size and pressure, though. Take a look at 3DBBQ's homemades for examples of ball valve homemades. Most of those probably get about 50'-60', but with a larger PC, you should be able to get 100'.
Not to add to the off topicness, but I doubt that's the reason because it would be pretty easy to make a clip or turret for one (just use large shells).
Takes too much time to reload. Unless you can come up with a good clip for it.
Yellow, try sanding the PVC into a cone where you stick the darts in.
