I still got some kinks to work out with the spring gun and if I pump the BB full the pin wont pull but I'll work them out later. I also need to fill in some empty gaps and paint it but its pretty simple just a BBBB stuck in a longshot.

That's really creative. Nice work! How much did you have to dremel out for the coupler to fit into place correctly by the way. I am going to try this over the weekend.

I'm thinking about taking the AT3k and putting it in my LSFG.

Looks really good!

By the way Jerm, did you ever do anything more with the Airzone 8 Shooters?

Now this I like. I'm a little surprised that the BBBB fit into that space. Did you have to cut the pump down any to get it in there, or is it still full-length? I think if you put an RSCB clip on there, you'd have a ROF that would make this thing a true beast, able to rival even a well-modded Longshot, with the added advantage of being smaller and lighter. (I would think pumping it while tilting it down to load the next dart from the RSCB would be a relatively quick and easy task.)

One of these days I'll decide just what I want to do with my LSFG. This, or something like it, might just be the front-runner.

I think this is next to the perfect secondary. Good ranges with the BBBB, but you can still fire if you aren't pumping. Plus, the lsfg is a piece of shit without anything special, and if you did a dtb intigration to the Ls, (or any intigration that really sticks out) you can't use it. Good mod, worth doing, and looks a little easier than the titan minimization...
You should try and have the BBBB fired by a keyring, if at all possible. Please don't flame me, I have never seen the insides of a BBBB. Its still a thought.

I don't think that's necessary. Unless I'm completely misinterpreting what I'm seeing, the BBBB is attached to the LSFG's trigger - i.e. both guns fire from the same trigger. (I see a piece of what looks like coat-hanger wire or something similar that leads from the BBBB pin down past the LSFG spring to the trigger mechanism.) Assuming I'm correct, that means he can:

1) Pump up the BBBB, load a dart, and fire...
2) Cock the LSFG, load a dart, and fire...
3) Pump up the BBBB, cock the LSFG, load two darts, and fire (with drastically different ranges!)...

...all from the same trigger.


If I was using this blaster, I'd keep the BBBB pumped and loaded, and just keep the LSFG loaded, but not cocked. Then, if I need a quick extra shot (to fend off a rush or something), I'd quickly cock the LSFG and fire.
