Depending on what tools you have the price could ebbe as low as 5-15$ but more than likely since you will screw up something on your first try (we all do) your looking at around 20-30 for your first real homemade.
I recommend for your first build of anything try making a HAMP. Its pretty straight forward and will allow you to get used to cutting PVC and using couplers and bushings. All of you should need is some PVC pipe and PVC fittings depending on what you already have.
After that look into making a trigger less Snap then one with a trigger and keep working on up.
I looked up the HAMP and I think that's a great way to start, how much would a good pumpsnap run me? I have the tools.
The Mark 8 costs ~$50 if you don't already have any the required parts or materials. If you can buy the exact quantity of every part you'd need for the bulk costs, you're looking at $15.50 per blaster (You can't; I think it's like 100 blasters built to get that price). For $58 you could build two. If you don't have a drill, saw, or bits; you're probably going to need to buy $50 in tools. Basically any saw can cut PVC (Shoot, even mason's twine can cut PVC), so if you have one already you're good. Everything you need should be available at a well-stocked Home Depot or Lowes.
I looked at your mark 8 and loved it. I think I will make that first, the HAMP is cool but not quite what I want, so thanks!
Some Rampages (later production models, maybe?) require the use of a small white cap that is included in the kit. I couldn't get it to fit, so I couldn't use the new plunger rod or catch. I just stuck with the new mainspring and catch spring. I haven't had any problems yet, so I would recommend just buying one of their springs and catch springs by themselves.
Hmm, I haven't bought the rampage for it yet... The sonic ice one should have the piece I'm guessing since its newer... I will probably get that and a kit, I'm not sure.
EDIT: I just realized that it wouldn't solve the semi auto issue, but still sounds dope

Spring's energy isn't going to be added to the flywheels in any practical way. The dart would have to enter the flywheels perfectly centered, and the wheels would have to be moving faster than the dart is already to contribute. Think of throwing a pitch, into a pitching machine to get it to go farther.
A rebarreling could make it work
...so I just bought a Longshot said to be in perfect working order (with only the clip catch missing)...and the thing shoots a whopping 4 feet. Also, the front gun handle is loose and inoperable. I has some work to do. What's this kit cost?
For starters it WAS $70 but you cannot get them anymore, also this is for the longstrike not the longshot.
