Spartan_117's Universal Longshot Mod
Spartan_117 made his Longshot shoot all (I assume) types of stock darts. However, one complaint was quite prevalent in the responses:
"The clips don't work with the taggers and suckers."
And so: My clip attempts to accommodate them by:
A: Adding a second spring to push against the head friction and
B: Cutting a bit off to make room for the heads.
Cut along these red lines ON ONLY ONE SIDE. However, I found that the follower pops out at an angle so I added a small tab (see red circle)
to catch against the leftover clippy thing (terribly vague, the things that hold the magazine together that are not screws) which I cut to an appropriate size.
The clip does fit in the gun! YAY!
I'm not sure this picture proves anything...
Still OCCASIONALLY jams (approx. 1 in 30) with taggers and with suckers (approx. 1 in 20)
Sometimes spits darts out top when not in gun, due to extra spring load.
Heads still stack tall in clip.
It works, it adds versatility, and I like it! It needs work, though. Suggestions?
Oh, and one note: It may be that the darts will perform worse in non-carbine Longshots due to the barrel. I'm not sure.
EDIT: OH gosh... I'm sorry I didn't preview. Huge pictures will change as soon as i can change them.
EDIT2: Pictures resized. I apologize for my horrible crimes against your eyes.
EDIT3: Ranges, right, sorry. I, um... don't know. BUT! They are comparable (within a +/-3 ft margin of error) to stock streamlines in stock clips in range.
