Big Snap Bow Made Into Nerf Shotgun
Posted 01 December 2008 - 09:36 PM
I can make the shotgun head and adaptors etc with ease
Before anyone says "try it and see", I live in Australia and materials are very hard to come by so I don't want to throw a whole load of difficult to obtain resources into what could potentially be a project doomed from the start.

Edit: I dunno of any springer that can do what your asking. Maybe 2 or 3 barrels but not 8. I might look into using a Titan or BBBB if I were you, but you still might not even be able to achieve 8 barrels at 50 feet with those guns.

Just go to Bunnings or Mitre 10, as for springs, try National Parts fasteners division or any other industry supplier who specialises in fasteners etc. I have not personally bought springs from them yet, but I am very sure they stock all types of springs.

The only way I know of effectively shot gunning a SNAPbow would to literally shotgun load it, as in putting 2 darts in the front of the barrel. A slight decrease in range, maybe 20 ft (That leaves a good 80-90 feet). I'm not sure a SNAPbow can hold an 8 barrel attachment. Even if you can support it on, a PlusBow spring won't launch 8 darts at a range of 50 ft. Maybe 20 ft (to my knowledge), but not 50. Titans work well, and if you're planning on sweeping a corridor, reload time shouldn't really matter, if you can wipe out everyone in the area. A Scatter Titan would be great, you just have to route tubings to connect to the holes in the back of a Fire Fly turret to make it 8-shot. And some big PVC.
Also, maybe a banded PC could work.

A SNAP might work with a scatter cannon as well. Don't hold me to that, I haven't tested it.
So basically any high air output gun with a scatter cannon would work.
I lubed it again and again, I don't see what an extra 2 centimeters does. I don't think I will cut it off.

Wait, are you asking if someone else can design/make this thing for you to then buy off of them?
I intend on making it myself, i just wanted to see if it was feasible before I start hunting round for parts etc.
@ The inventor guy, the local hardware and plumbing stores sell very few pvc sizes and those they do sell are often 3-4mm from what is advertised. Getting my hands on materials for sounds like would have been a failed project would have sucked
So from what I gather, a springer won't shift the air volume required to launch that many darts?
the BBBB isn't available that I have seen. My local toys r us has the titan but it is $80. Plus a homemade is more fun.
