So I have been working in homemades for a while, because I find making them more satisfying than modifying guns. I have made a rifle, long range weapon, shotgun, and now was looking to make a good sidearm. I wanted a solid design that would give me good ranges when I ran across this.
It seemed to be perfect, so I decided to try a reverse plunger design of my own. Carrtoon owns a lathe, so a lot of the fitting of my project needed to be done via sanding. It's nice that it can be made with a dremel, drill, and other simple tools. Much of the credit for this goes to Cartoon and his design. Without further adieu, the pistol:
This is it when cocked:
The view from where you load the darts (through the back, then put the cap back on):
If this is confusing, see Carrtoon's pistol.
Finally, a size comparison to a NF:
I will post pictures of the plunger later if people are interested. Also, I might post a write up, but not for some time because school is almost back for me. Ranges are stupendous, because there is literally no
dead space. I'd say about the range of my Snap (90 feet flat).
EDIT-- RPS stands for Reverse Plunger Sidearm
