You never fail to impress. Absolutely beautiful again. And the trampoline at the end was very nostalgic.

What did you do to the ramrod? Is it just tethered to the side or is that a magnet?

Very nice, you can use the rear grip of the bbb as a stock when using the at2k. What that thought out or more coincidental?

I... Can't... Believe... I... Just... Watched... 2 MINUTES OF HIM JUMPING ON THE TRAMPOLINE!!! :angry:

That aside, wow! Very nice work. Angel, you continue to inspire me. The next step for me is to gain access to some actual tools. My dad's shop is very basic... I can't wait until I have some money and my own place, time would be nice too.

*thumbs up*

That thing has more handles than an indecisive 13-year-old, damn. But still a great mod. Good work. I like the paintjob alot.

My heart is aflutter with lust over this sensual work of gun erotica. Angel's mods make me feel funny inside. Do you have any mock-up pictures of this beauty?

I am intrigued by how you attached the ramrod to the at2k. Did you use one of those spring-loaded badge reels, like this one?

I thought it was a great creation, but I'm not in favor of all those handles. I'd minimize the AT2K and try to add more on. Great job, but it wouldn't suit me as well. I will definately try and integrate a AT2K into mine from all these BBB's I've seen these past few weeks.

Very well executed, but it seems quite large and unwieldy to me. Maybe that is just how it looks, though.

Either way, a good mod.

In my opinion,
Nice:
-Name
-Apparent functionality
-Mods that have never been done(or if they have, never chronicled) to the BBB
-Interesting way of cutting off the goo gauge(you did fill the hole up though, right?)
-Paint job
-Way of attaching ramrod, whatever that way is

Not so nice:
-The fact that the breech isn't deodorant-clipped
-All the handles which look to me as if they are ready to snap off at any second
-How dang BIG that thing is

I second Salmon except for the part where he thinks the handles will snap off. I think know Angel knows how to glue properly and know what glue to use.

-Clips do not work well in wars. period. A breach like that is plenty fast, especially with a quadded AT2K backing you up.
-The only load bearing handle is the longshot handle with two MASSIVE bolts attaching it. The other handles should be fine with epoxy putty he used.
-It looks fine when Crooked is holding it. It can't be too much bigger than the X-Bow/SF combos we all jizz over.

Your work has been getting better and more practical the more wars you attend, excellent.
Not much else, you're use to all the praise.

I kinda like large and unwieldy... As for the whole deoderant clip thing, I'd like to add that I've been experimenting with gravity-based feeding, and short of a 2-pound follower and nerves of steel, I don't see one being terribly practical; darts are not balanced front-to-back, so they don't like to fall into place with any regularity. I'm sure it could be improved upon, but doing so would be difficult. Saying all that to say this: Nice work, Angel. This is my favorite of your mods, other than Doomsayer, which may well be un-toppable.

The handles are gooped or epoxied on right? Cause they look like they will break off it they weren't. Other than that another masterpiece.

I like it, but the durability seems questionable. It looks like it might break, especially where the BBB handle is attached to the AT2K pump. But if it works, awesome!

Writeups are way better than Videos, because one can look at everything together and analyze it while, also being able to get to the juicy bits without having someone's musical choices and narration get in the way.

Neat idea, but it looks like a lot to keep track of in a war, plus you lose that mobility that one has with just an at2k.

Blackfox: The ramrod is attached to a retractable ID holder. The loop that normally went through the Id tag fit perfectly around the dowel. It is super glued in place. The retractable magnet looking thing has a spring in it that retracts the dowel as soon as you let go. This will prevent lost dowels. I also used some wire conduit to keep the dowel from rattling around at the side. Both the retractable piece and the conduit were epoxy puttied into place.

NisaBuro: It was all planned.

NOH: Every handle serves a purpose. The reason I mounted the LS handle to the side was so that you could place one hand on the LS handle. Then place the other hand on the rear BBB handle. While aiming the BBB turn it side ways so that the LS handle is now straight up. Now you can look right down the barrel to improve accuracy.

DanielBeaver: Yes, Genius little ram rod retracting device isn't it?

Salmon: Deodorant clips only work at wars where you don't need to run or dodge. Every handle serves a purpose.

Ubermensch: I have you on facebook?

Sirtofu:It was never planned for this to be a write up.

Crooked: Glad you enjoy it mate. Just remember to fulfill your side of the bargain.

Not bashing on the handles, btw. Can the BBB be primed with a hand on the 2K's handle?

One question... Why not call it "Love Handles" instead of the "Crooks-bow"?

But on a serious note good work as always Angel.

I like the ram rod idea and will likely use it. Where did you purchase your retractable pen module from?

I just found them at a Staples I think.
I remember seeing them and thinking of Grooves semi retractable orange spiral thing he had at Apoc 2008.
I was like "Hrmmmmmm... upgrade!"

Not bashing on the handles, btw. Can the BBB be primed with a hand on the 2K's handle?


I am assuming it can, but it would be awkward.
