Mega Maverick Shoots 100'
Posted 02 January 2009 - 07:51 PM
The hardest part may have been gutting the maverick to fit the Mega air tank.
Here it is after extending the tank and pump. That's 2" pvc in the front air tank and 1" pvc for the pump.
Here are the internals showing how I glued the Mega Missile trigger to the Maverick trigger.
Next I added a coupler and 1" cap in place of the orange pump handle.
A 12" barrel works well. The gun is painted with Krylon Fusion flat camo green.
At 8 pumps with sonic whistling darts it can shoot up to 100ft.
Firefly glow darts can shoot 75 ft.
My next project is the Maverick with turret. It is working now but it has rotation issues because the air tank is not glued to the gun yet. Hopefully I can get the timing right over the break. Videos coming this spring.

So he can Do A Barrel Roll!!
Why such the long barrel with stock darts?
I think its because there's a lot of power.

For the timing to work out, the valve shouldn't trigger until the end of the trigger stroke. That's when the turret is aligned with the valve.
Nice mod, though!

Looks functional, definitely spectacular ranges with whistler darts.
Thats the way I do it. Use a rag with some light fast rubbing.
Sometimes I hate my uncontrollable imagination....
