Let me start by saying the name is inspired by it being a "side cocking rifle" where the clip holds 6 darts. Now that that is out of the way, I give you a project that has had months of blood sweat and tears poured into it.
The SCR-6:

It has some similarities to the snap, but also several differences.

1: There is no bar coming out the back of the gun, which allows the user to hold the rifle to his chest before firing.
2: It has a built in "ladder sight" that Cartoon has explanations for here: http://nerfhaven.com...hl=Ladder Sight
I did however, put my own twist on it, where the ladder is on a hinge so it stays out of the way while firing, and is velcroed to the body. The view is like this:

3: It uses a stripper clip, but it is more like a chain, so that when the bottom barrel is loaded on the top barrel stays out of the users line of sight. It is connected via velcro so that when one barrel is damaged/breaks, it can be replaced: Posted Image
4: It has a hinge in the stock, (which is hollow), to allow the user to hold a second clip:

5: It has a stock, handle, and barrel support made of wood.
6: Last, but most importantly, it cocks from the side! It has a metal bar which has a rubber/foam grip to allow for easy firing:

As for the stats, it gets mid 80's. The plunger system is the same to the SNAPs, however, the spring is housed inside a 3/4" coupler. The ROF is a little faster than a NF.

Even though I am happy with the stats, my main goal was to create a relatively realistic looking rifle, that could still perform well enough to be my primary. I think I was sucessful. A couple more pictures of it just for kicks:

You said that it doesn't use a rod in the back... do you mean the plungerhead consists of a end cap, some 3/4'' PVC, and a normal coupler instead of end cap, some 3/4'' PVC, and another end cap?

Sorry, the plunger from front to back is:

Endcap with rubber washers in it like a snap, then 3/4" pipe, then a coupler. The spring is housed inside the coupler, and the coupler is sanded down, so that the trigger is locking over a coupler and not an endcap (same idea though). A picture is worth a thousand words:

Can you put it back together and get a picture of it cocked? Don't take a picture of the whole thing, just focus on the pressure chamber.

Thanks. :P I understand how it works now. I thought you connected the front handle to it so it'll work like a shotgun.

I'm actually working on something like this with a shotgun grip. Can be seen partway complete here:

Thats pretty good as most homemades I've seen. But Just as a suggestion, I would think about changing the name, because even though its Scar-6, thats still really close to Boltsnipers Scar.

He hasn't been active in over two years, and you misspelled SCR-6.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Whoops, sorry. I thought I saw the title say SCAR.

That thing is just so fugly, it'd be funny to watch people get hit by it. Vacc said something like that awhile ago...
It is VERY ugly, but I really don't care.

Now I just feel bad... :)
I might take off the ladder sight, and will definitely clean up where the plunger tube attaches to the stock.

It's growing on me...

I think the main reason it's ugly is the fact you painted it the color of shit, which in any case is wierd. Or chocalate ice cream.

Maybe paint it a different color? I like it, but I wouldn't want to hold it... ;)

No... And at AJ.Z, it probably because of the front handle. It looks signifigantly better w/out it.

That's one of the best looking homemade guns i've ever seen. I like the chain mag you made, that's pretty sweet. Kudos to you.

They work by pulling a nail out of the plunger chamber. When you press on the clothes pin the front rises up, it's the front you'll connect the nail to. This nail obviously sticks into the plunger chamber and connects with the back of the plunger head which cocks it.
