3. We use modded weapons at our church wars. Just as long they give a huge advantage.(we have indoor wars so power doesn't make as much of a difference)
Anyways, where exacly in your church do you plan to have the war?
But I don't think even stickying this thread will completely prevent people from posting outrageous ranges. It's too much work and not really that worth it.
You're an animal! Great writeup and excellent mod. You're making a run for the most contributive member of '08.
What would happen if you ramroded the dart? I know that your cpvc is probably too tight, but I'm wondering what the ranges will be. Or did you ramrod them during your range test?
"There you go! A Reactor which shoots balls and darts. Just slide the barrel through the foam piece at the front, and push it into the coupler. It would be hard to change to the dart barrel in the middle of combat, but atleast itís possible. Range with balls are about 10-15í without ball roll, and darts consistently clear 65í, some landing as high as 85í, mainly depending on the dart. The majority of mine landed at around 75í."
EDIT: Oops, my bad. I've seen someone drill holes in the barrel before the tip so that air exits before the dart, preventing the dart from fishtailing. I guess I assumed that was what you did...
The fixed picture
^Picture needs to be fixed. Otherwise, nicejob, as always. I especially like how it retains the original ability to fire the balls.
The real problem is getting the turret completely turned before the tank fires off, and getting the tank to open up a good amount so more air can burst out, rather than leak out. I had an idea of using some sort of semi-strong elastic on the trigger, strong enough that it won't stretch while the turret it being rotated. Then, any extra pull after the turret it completely lined up, the elastic could stretch and that extra room could be used to open the tank valve.
Problems include finding the right material, figuring out a way to attach the trigger to the tank so it opens only after the elastic starts to stretch, and you might need to replace the elastic every now and then since it will wear down over time.
You could probaly do this with fishing line. however, it would take quite a bit of tinkering and perfecting to get it just right.
EDIT: you probably do something like this with the pump in back.
If you're lucky enough to find PETG at your local aquarium/pet shop, their PETG is like brass, it slide right over eachother. Get 9/16ths, it's the same inner diameter of 17/32 brass, and use 5/8 as the breach mover thing.
They sell PETG in pet shops? Where do you live? Can you find it in big pet stores like Pets Mart?
What kind of pressures do you plan on using in this gun anyway. 40? 50?
He hasn't decided yet, as it says in the first post.
If it is "pounds per square inch", then PSI with air should be the same as with water.*
*Disclamer: I don't this for a fact, but it makes sense.
I.E. go to directory> look for "Airtech 2000"> Click in link>
"Using the transparent tube in the back as an airtank
Why it failed:
The tube leaked air
Replace transparent tubing with an airtank made of PVC OR cover up the leak"
Or like NerfMonkey said, just not have one.
I have modified my sm1500 with pvc/crayola barrels and have found a problem. I can fire stock suction cup darts with amazing reliability and consistancy but when i use taggers i get misfires, tail spins and generally poor ranges but only every other shot or so. the other shots are perfect. this leads me to believe that there is a way to make them work but im missing somthing.
any thoughts on whats wrong with the gun or the darts or if it simply doesn't work are appreciated.
You could try wrapping etape around the tip. One layer, part on the dart head, part on the dart body.
Well in my case I actually do have a little brother that has an account with the same IP and such, does that mean that I'm in violation?
Or are you just talking about newer members that have "little brothers"?
I do have clarification from various mods that he does in fact exist.
I'm just checking to avoid both of us being banned.
Well, you could just share an account....
I use 1/2" FBR for 9/16" brass and crayola barrels and then I use 5/8" FBR for 1/2" PVC and CPVC
How in the fuck do you get a mega dart in CPVC?! Most cant even get micros in without a struggle.
There is also 3/4 in cpvc. I've seen it at ACE, but I haven't tried it.
A Drum Magazine. Your rolling mag seems to be a primitive drum magazine.
the rolling mag should be in a spiraling design. Not a circular drop, which is what your design appears to be.
A spiraling drum might be a lot more efficient, if you want to increase capacity, but you'd need to choose your spring carefully, too strong and your ammo will smoosh, too weak and you won't be able to fire.
However, with a spring that long, you will defineitely run into those problems
I like it! Very Creative! 85' is damn good too. I think that this should be added to the modification directory. How strong is the stock? I just wondered if it was flimsy at all.
The only problem is that its almost the same as kbarker's nite finder rifle. I like yours anyways, man. Nice job.
The pump's not the problem though. The seal still needs a little patching up, the leak I'm getting is alot bigger. and not from there.
Messing around with the pressure gauge seems to affect the rate of air leakage.
I'm guessing I have a leak some where along the line.
Any help here?
This is also applicable for modifacations.
Please contribute; the information you provide will be edited in as soon as I can get to it.
This is not just for my benefit; it is also for anyone who needs help with homemades/modding.
Thanks in advance!

ROF versus the range of your gun, plus any integrations that increase effectiveness through ROF or power.
Spring replacement(spring gun only)
Plug Pump(Air gun only, not in every circumstance)
psi= Pounds per Square Inch
more psi=higher velocity
more air = more power
longer barrels allow for more pressure to be built up
longer barrels= more accurate
