Changes in design
The gun, because itís so much smaller then my last one, doesnít need as many pumps because it can build up psi faster. I used the same glue, but orange this time, because it seems to seal the pvc better then anything else I could think of. The barrel to this gun is screwed on and off, because I didnít want to glue it to the ball value, because then loading anything but a Stefan is near impossible. The guardianís design was just shoving pvc into the ball value, and half the time the dart was so stuck in the barrel that is shot the barrel off rather then the dart. Using a screw on barrel eliminated that possibility.
Odds meet ends, itís a much better gun then the guardian, even though it doesnít shoot quite as far. At 16 pumps, and using the same Stefan every shot, these were my results.
I used the same Stefan in the guardian and pumped it 16 times.
Iím aware it doesnít shoot as far, but itís dead accurate, which the guardian could never be. This lead me to the name of the gun, which you might think is stupid but I like it, the ďavengerĒ because itís avenging everything the guardian failed in.
I was unsatisfied. I rethought my Stefan design and made ones without the orange cap on the end, but simply with an exposed washer covered by hot glue, hoping it would be more arow dynamick. I have to give credit to Forsaken_angel24 because my stefans are now his design, but grey instead of red. The new stefans were about twice the size of my oridgonals, so that probobly had something to do with the succes of the range. Any way, I did more range tests, but only for the new gun this time.
I don't know what happened with the first shot. The wind might have picked up or something. Enough talk, here's the video.
I was still using the old stefan in this video, so you can see what it looked like. And no, I'll give this one to my friend rather then keeping it like the last one, but I've still fallen in love with it. I would show how to make it, but it's not complicated, and you should be able to figure it out yourself. As to how I got the name, as my quote suggests, it avendged everything the guardian failed in.
Please comment, I very much enjoy reading comments
