After thats done take your half inch coupler and glue in about a 1/2" pice of 1/2" PVC on the side of the coupler that will be glued to your tank.
Now take a 3" section of 17/32" brass and insert 2 inches of that into a 1ft section of PETG. Glue a section of 1/2" PVC from the base of the PETG upwards. Make sure that 1" of brass is still protruding out and glue an airtight seal to the PVC.
Now when you insert your barrel into the coupler virtually all the dead space is removed.
Then I just added 6 scrap pieces of PETG as dart holders.
Haven't bothered measuring ranges. Slugs at 8 pumps hit close to 140.
Not too impressive but It has potential. I took apart the few pieces and then tried to figure out how the four barrels worked, I tried pulling them apart and in the end just gave up.
Then I grabbed a ½ coupler, epoxied it to the end of the plunger tube and then covered it with some duct tape.
Added on my barrel and taxa!
I have yet to even upgrade the spring as I didn't have any that fit but right now the ranges are significantly improved. It's definitely useable in battle, though not up to the original crossbow. I'll get a new spring in it tomorrow and update you with ranges. Theres also a lot of dead space below the barrel so I'll be doing some minimization.
UPDATED (Sorry No Pics)
So I used a small screw then epoxied the exterior to help reinforce the draw, and upgraded the spring. As for ranges I'm constantly getting 52'-56' with the stock darts. Just for fun I also incerted a small sample of Tritium right on the end of the plunger head (I checked and it doesn't do anything to help/hurt the gun) to create what I believe is the first truly radioactive gun on Nerfhaven. So you can blast your opponents with Beta infused darts!
Overall its a decent blaster. I'll be keeping it as my collection is down to 4 guns. But I wouldn't use it as a primary.
When you first open up the gun the huge spring will shoot out the back. (You do NOT need to cut it so it fits conformably.)
You will notice that there is nothing to guide the spring back. So as the spring is pulled back and fired, it rubs against the inner wall of the gun. This is what causes the ridiculously loud sound when priming and firing the weapon.
To fix this I used the stock lonshot barrel as a guide for the spring. (any hard tubing around 3/4in will work) Cut this piece so it is almost 4 inches long. Then glue it to the back and place the spring around it.
Next take a look at the top of the plunger shell. You will see a small hole, cover with glue.
(Its hard to see in the photo)
I removed the Ar's on the outside but haven't CPVC'd it yet.
I am really excited to make it shoot darts because it is so effective with the missiles.
The ranges were measured straight from the video. The last one was angled so it doesnt really count.

What do you guys think?
On-topic: Jeez, how much smaller can people make these things?
My Titan shell broke so I put it in an AT2K and made it shoot stock darts.
The tape is only temporary to hold the tank while I glue it in.
It gets around 120 with taggers and 130 with whistlers.
Because of my set up I can now choose between 1/2in PVC or 1/2in CPVC to use as a barrel so it shoots stock and homemade darts. (No ranges on the homemades)
He threw the guns. And unless he added new springs, reinforcements, barrels, no AR's, the full 9,000 yards I believe nothing as far as just a maverick spring.
Me? I can post a vid If I'm not believed.
Could you please post a video. Your mod is not in the directory and I don't believe some springs and a new barrel could add up to 85'
the best I've gotten is 85' with a FUCKING HEAVY MODDED Switchshot Wii. But it has really heavy modifications. Its nice though. I posted a write up a while ago, search for that.
What "Heavy Mods" Did you use with your Switchshot? I've never gotten over 50'
l33t can you please give me a quote on where it said the Fury Fire was a springer?
Furyfire - holds 10 darts. Instead of cocking the gun back, like the Maverick, etc. you'll pump the handle at the front of the gun, like a shotgun. This will load the gun, and then you can fire with the trigger, then repeat. Basically a newer and better version of the Dart Tag (10 dart version). Actually it's a lot more similar to the Maverick, in terms of how the gun is designed. Only real difference is that the rotating barrel is more like the Firefly, and the pump is at the front, for "easier and faster firing". It's not an air powered gun, with an air pump and a tank. It's spring loaded, like the Maverick, Raider, etc.
As much as I hate proving people wrong... Actually I'll really enjoy it in this case. The furyfire is a pump action gun. I am now 99% sure. Look at the two furyfire guns.
Notice how the green one on top has the priming handle fully extended, while the orange on on the bottom is only half extended. If this were a spring powered gun there would be a second spring pulling the handles back up so the plunger tube could properly fire.
So there it is. They use an air tank.
Although for some strange reason it seems all wildfires plastic casings around bladder are dirty.
PS. I like the powerclip mag
This first part I'm going to show you may not be necessary for all of you. But with my powerclip on the rare occasion the clip will not advance.
I used duct tape to show where to place it, but packaging tape will be better suited because there is virtually no added resistance.
Cut and lay around 3 layers.
This will push the advancing piece in more towards the clip so it shouldn't miss the notches.
For this next part you will want to remove that copper piece I told you to use earlier. Instead of filling some of the dead space we will just directly eliminate almost all of it by having the piston release the air further into the dividing piece.
You will cut 5mm off of the back part of the shell that holds the piston in place (Do this to both sides). The piston should still be firmly held in place when this is finished.
The last thing I wanted to do was add a little more spring power to pull the piston back quicker. I used a old spring I found that was just large enough to fit over the piston and still fit in the gun. I stuck the spring on and needed a place for the spring to start building up tension. I used a piece of scrap plastic to use on the spring. I measured it to the right size and place, then firmly attached it to the other side of the shell.
Now I have done everything I can possibly think of to modify the Powerclip, but I hope someday there might be more to come.
What I didn't mention before is that there are 2 main ways after removing the belt clip and cutting the base to make the magazine fit. There is a small lip on the side that follows up to the top of the mag. Sand it down.
Or if you don't want to sand it down you can cut a small indent into the top of the gun where the magazine is fed.
Now the other thing I noticed with this gun is when the piston is fully extended there is still 6mm of dead space.
To fix this I cut 5mm of 1/2in copper and glued it in place. Covering non of the crucial parts of the holes.
Part 3 coming soon.
This makes me want a pc... Did you make or buy that outfit?
HA. You're the fucking man. I loved every second of that video. Storm trooper shakes powerclip until spent magazine flies out.
It's interesting that you made the clips to fit... Not sure why. There's a little lip on the side of the powerclip magazines that stretches the length. Is there the same on the magstrike's? Do you have to cut that off as well?
Did you band the gun? I have one band of tubing on mine with the PC piston, and with 21 pumps (the opv kicking in), it shoots about one and a half clips, at about 50 feet flat. Are your ranges flat as well? They seem high, though I never shoot the PC anywhere near flat in a war.
Actually, Chas, since I know you're going to read this at some point, we should just cannibalize what's left of your magstrike and make this hybird thing like he did here.. Mmmm.
Do the magstrike clips still work in the magstrike? Because that would just make this perfect. Chas, you still have that NIB Iron Man MS here.
I did not have to remove the side lip on the magstike mags, The bladder isn't banded, Ar's are removed, I used FA24's mod around the o ring on the pison, And those ranges are with converted taggers. I'll have a new video up by sunday, where I'm not shooting straight down.
But most importantly I did make the suit!
:EDIT: If you look carefully in the video you will see that when the mag breaks when it flies out and hits the ground.
Part 3 below
I'm going to show you how to make your powerclip shoot off 2 magstrike magazines and increase range by about 10 ft.
The Magstrike mags are identical to the powerclip mags with the exception of 2 things
#1 the Magstrike has a belt clip on the side of the mag that must be taken off.
#2 The Magstrike mags have a longer base that must be reduced.
After messing around with the internals I accidently broke the Powerclips piston, thankfully I had a previous magstrike piston handy to use. For some reason the Magstrike piston is more air efficient. When the new piston was in its place I found that I was able to shoot off 2 clips with up to 65ft ranges.
21 pumps=2 mags. Thats pretty damn efficient.
(Do keep in mind that the Powerclips green advancing piece still must be used.)
Here is a partial video. My camera died on me when filming so it ends short. I'll remake the video with ranges and both mags firing this weekend.
(If you don't like the video at least like my suit.)
