Not a weapon, but a mobstacle frame. I still need to add tarp sides.

Made from PVC EMT, hence the bell ends. They're also UV resistant, and a bit cheaper than PVC from plumbing at Home Depot. 5' per side, so it's big enough for a person to crouch behind, but not to 'stand and deliver'. Loops at each corner for tent stakes, so it doesn't become a sail or kite.

Collapses to 2.5' lengths of pipe for easy transport.

Costs me $8 for parts, 15 minutes to assemble, a minute to collapse and another minute to deploy. However, all the loose rope can easily become a Gordian knot, so it will have to be packed carefully.

RBP Rev2 Plunger rod.

Posted Image

I've moved away from using the traditional 1/2" Nylon and cutting out a notch. The reason for this is when moving to the Rev2, the slots in the back were eliminated. I figured the string stop would align the plunger rod enough to work, but every once and a while, the plunger rod would magically rotate out of place causing the blaster to not catch anymore. So I figured it was time to design a multi-directional catch notch. Kane actually gave me the idea initially, and I went with it. First I tried using 3/8" rod, with 3/8" x 1/2" tubing over that. This initially worked fine, worked all of Apoc, and then I started noticing problems with it not catching. I'm not surprised in the first place because 1/16" isn't much room to catch, even for the Rainbow catches. In the final version, I used 1/4" aluminum rod, with 1/4" x 1/2" polycarbonate tubing nested over. At the end of the polycarb tube is where it actually catches. I did a drop test while primed and it still stayed caught after dropping it from waist level on concrete (even though part of the pump tube broke(small problem being addressed)).

In this design, the plunger head is "floating". The rod doesn't go through the length of the plunger head to allow for the air to vent through through the plunger head when priming, thus eliminating vacuum loading, the number one problem with misfeeds in hoppers. In later iterations, I plan on extending the tube near the front, and pouring silicone RTV in the void for my flap valve. This will be easier to do and will result in a perfect seal everytime.

Posted Image

The last important thing to mention is I think I'm moving away from the string stop. Instead, I'm going to add a couple (or few) of these rubber grommets between the end of the pump tube, and the piece of Sch. 80 it pushes on to prime. I will do a bit more testing on this to make sure I'm not ruining other parts of my blaster when dry firing it.

I'm worried the nail might scratch/crack it but it's held up for 25 shots.

My finished Pumpsnap. Credit goes to Beaver for the superb design. sports a homemade hopper and a custom stained wood grip. Took me forever to get the thing up to snuff. Brought it to the last Socal war and was super disappointed that it wasn't getting the same range it was getting during testing. Upon inspection after the war, I discovered why. Apparently it sucked a dart out of my hopper and into the PT. Guess I'll have to give it another chance.

This thing is so ungodly long and unwieldy I was referring to it as my Lance the whole day. Because of this, I decided to name it Don Quixote.

So, handles didn't work out quite as I expected. Between the three different kind of resins that I used, every single handle broke from just dropping it on the weakest part, from waist level. While the resin is really strong in large, thick quantities, the thinner sections shear pretty easily. Ice9 gave me the idea I should add side plates like I did with the wooden handles, to help distribute the force away from the weak sections. Seems like it works perfectly. I did the drop test, threw it up in the air, smashed it against the ground, and it still holds up.

Requires a little extra work, but those side plates literally take 3 minutes to make. This is still a much quicker and more consistent method of making handles, since I still save at least half the time and effort that it took to make the wooden handles.

Plunger rods are also done. The flap for the flap valve is now just some silicone RTV. This makes it much easier to get a perfect seal, and just to do in the first place.

More to come soon, these should be coming together in the next week.

Like $10 in couplers and PVC.

I made 3" flaps to sew over. That sucked, use 4".

Theoretically the darts fall into the pool. In reality like 40% do and the rest bounce off. FML.

And...and, get this: it "colapses" for "transportation". 'Merica!

Handle is super comfy, but needs to be redone. can you tell the mistake I made. It's why I need the E-tape to hold it up.

Snap EL mk-2
Posted Image


This is an altered version of a snap, my style. andtheherois's snap was my first snap I've ever built. i changed somethings i didn't like about his design (in my opinion) and this is what it turned out to be. My style trigger (not sure if has been done, its a polycarb trigger), and a plunger with a k26 and k25 inside. I did not like the piston as it created much more friction and disabled the ability to use a spring with a higher constant. The only way to install a k26 would be to use either an extremely small piston, or a plunger. the PVC over the stalk is the priming slide.

Description: Snap style homemade
Ammunition: 1/2'' slugs
Operation: Priming slide
Propulsion: compression spring(k26+k25)
Magazine: hopper, rscb clip
Mag capacity: depends on Mag.
Overall length: 30''
barrel length: 11''
max range: 120 ft.
effective range: 80 ft
accurate range: 70 ft
Intended use: long range (reload speed not too great, hard to prime)

Did a SnapBow for 5sliverringz I like how it turned out.

Yes It stands on it's own.

Wooden handle and Trigger. The curvature makes it super comfy. I still have too much wood.
