My friends and I had been experimenting with Nerf zombie as a game type and the idea to take it a step further and turning it into a simplified Larp came forth. I started browsing various Larping sites and rules.

What I discovered was this: http://larpsupply.com/_wsn/page5.html

Many Larps use these guns as opposed to Nerf.I just wish the site hadn't closed down so I could get my hands on some. Has anyone ever encountered these? If so do any of you own one personally?

I'd love to buy one or more, they seem interesting.

It looks like you could make one. Its probably just a simple design like a SNAP or similar just on a larger scale. As for the foam balls .68 caliber is paintball size, so it might be hard to come across .68 caliber foam balls unless you know of a website that sells them. It looks cool, and if you try to make one good luck.

I like many people on this form use to play paintball. When you said that you needed foam balls the size of paintballs it reminded me of this.

The crossbow looks interesting. Can anybody tell how it's supposed to work?

Wait, I am tired. Some stores such as Wal*Mart sell foam paintballs. I am sure of this.

Yeah. See the triangle near the trigger area? The circle on the lower point of the triangle is a pivot. The upper circle is a handle going to the triangle on the other side (see the pistol crossbow for an example). When you press down on the handle, it presses up on the elastic which is pulled back and over a stop. When the elastic gets over the top of the wood, it zips forward, pressing against the base of the nerf arrow.

Thanks, I see it now. They tricked me by being so low tech.

I am sure it would be easy enough to make one but making one that looked so clean AND had a wooden stock is a completely different thing. I guess what I really like is the old school look that the guns have, and the loading just seems interesting; like loading an old musket. Thanks for all the input so far guys, keep it up!

I own a couple of the full sized crossbows, one of the pistol crossbows, and I think I still have some of the actionball guns somewhere. I have been using them at various LARPs over the last five years. All work well, and have held up fine over the years. The only one i really don't like is the small crossbow, the dowel that the "arrow" is guided by is too small for the "arrow" and it tends to roll around / fall off.

Screw the guns, those swords and stuff look badass! I would get one if it didn't cost 40-50 bucks, I'll just wait to get one of those Nerf swords coming out...

Would you be up for selling one or more of the actionball guns to me? I would really appreciate it! Pm sent just in case you don't check the thread.

Here's a link about something like this (this isn't the actual document, obviously). LARP Nerf Combo I'll try to get some permission from WLT to post the link to the actual document.

Well I cant post a link to the rules system doc that I'm working on as it's set to invite only. (dont want any one stealing my ideas before I get the game rolling) but if you're interested in checking it out send me a PM and I'll invite you. Do bear in mind that it is still very much in it's infancy.

Also, for LARP weapons without equal I recommend ironliege.com. I've bought a few weapons from him now and when my new game takes off will likely buy more.

I like them.
Plus, the regular cocking slide (Can't sig me now bitches! ) is much faster.

I was told about a new site he was working on where I could possibly get his weapons.

Here it is: http://pirates.larp.com/events.html

I sent him a message about his weapons but still no reply.
