Tip: Don't post anything like this until you can actually put an image of some kind in the first post

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

And even then, shouldn't this be in homemades?

Or is he right because it's for a modded blaster?

It's a homemade item. If he modded a clip, then it's a mod.

Do you know what commas are for? This post shows that you don't. *rants about other errors* you know what, just type your posts in Word first to find spelling and grammatical errors.

I pity the fool who attempts to use a single-shot blaster against me.

I always thought that a spiral clip would be cool for the longshot, it would start at the top like a normal clip, then at the bottom curve to the right and form a solid circle, with the ammo forming a spiral inside. There are a lot of problems with the design though, so it probably wouldn't work.

Anyway, cool idea with homemade clips!

I don't know why you would want to do that as it would not accomplish any increases in capacity in that configuration.

yes it would... it would be a lot longer. thus allowing more darts to fit in.

Sorry, I mis-visualised it in my mind, I thought he meant a helix shape. So yes in that case it would.

Again, sorry for mis-reading.

And it would look like a real clip if it was painted black. Along with the LS painted, that thing will look like a real gun.

I believe Telikinetic made/started a spiral clip for the LS. Should be in the Modification/PJ thread.

I can understand if you mis-read it, it was sort of hard to explain.

Well it's because you said spiral, and in my mind I pictured that: a full spiral. Usually the shape of such magazines is more akin to a banana.

This could all be sorted out by calling it a drum magazine, which is what it essenntially is.

There would be no point to having a banana-style magazine feeding a Longshot, as darts have a more-or-less uniform outer diameter and no shell casings to speak of, let alone one with a significantly larger OD than the body of the dart. Any spiral shape for the Longshot should be in the form of a drum magazine, not a banana magazine.

If I recall correctly, I think someone started on a drum magazine using one of those cylindrical rewritable cd cases.

You fail because you basically necro'd a topic, and have no idea of how to make a useful post, or a homemade LS clip.

it holds 14 darts less than 3 1/8 inches and is very reliable jams dont happen very often

the bottom rectangle is 3/4 inch by 3 inches
the two side pannels are 5 7/8 by 5/8 inches
the front pannels are 3 by 6 1/4 inches
then find a spring of choice make a dart pusher, and walla!

Wow. I've been wishing that CaptainSlug or FA_24 or someone would make this their next project, and then you come out of nowhere and just make the damn thing. Maybe room for improvement (poly instead of cardboard?), but kudos to you.
