A working prototype, as opposed to a sexy machined one that exists only on paper.

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.

Just change the materials and cut a slot for the catch and your good to go.



You All Officially Fail at Nerf you spoiled Brats.



Its just a prototype.


you on the other hand... Are awesome.

Good job, a true modder uses whatever he can get his hands on and makes it work.

Thanks Bag's , I really admire your spidey' dart tag gun's but I didnt say because I was afraid of reviving an old topic. Anyways to stay on topic I am making other plans for homemade clips for the longshot and I'll have news about them once I start them.

Any ideas on one?

The spring is by far the hardest part, and probably why you haven't seen anyone make one yet? Have you made/gotten one yet? I couldn't tell from your other posts.

I just took an AR spring and stretched it out with pliers (sp.) into the shape of the longshot clip's spring.

I got a question. What are the dimensions of this thing? For the recon, I mean. I'm not tryin to copy it, its just I've got this idea for clips and was just wondering how big these were.

Thanks -n=mc^2

E=mc^2
Energy=Mass x Speed of light in a vacuum (in celeritas) squared
N=mc^2
Nerf=Mass of air in tank x Speed of air release in a barrel squared

Is an Air Restrictor spring really strong enough to work well?

I'd appreciate of you could post a picture of what your spring looks like now, so I could get a more intuitive idea.
