Nice, Hope that turns out well. Also, on the bottom end of the stock, to make it more comfy, you might wanna put 90 degree elbows on instead of Ts.
I would but i ran out half way through. Still its fairly comfy.
Great concept, now what you need to do is glue two LS plunger tubes together, replace the plunger rod, and use an AR-15 full-length spring to power it. That way you use the whole LS body, and you get air power that actually does compare to the +Bow.
I would try that but i don't have an extra $80 on me. if you want to try, more power to you, but range wise and war legality this works out fine.
interesting. I don't understand why everyone wants crossbows so much. There are so many cheaper ways to get guns to shoot the same distance, if not farther! this is a prime example. I'm guessing the LS and materials together probably cost 40 bucks. Shoots the same distance and operates the same as a crossbow, but is approx. $200 less! Good concept, but I don't see why it needs to prime like a crossbow. I find that the bolt on the LS works just fine, even with extra springs in the gun.
thanks for getting the whole embodiment of the design for saving money and simplicity of it. If i were to make it use the bolt to prime it would require a lot more parts and not work as well, now it primes in a similar fashion as the nf.
Except for this part.
With all the recent mods/homemades, an xbow should be pretty much obsolete.
I'll elaborate. I mean obsolete as far as people going crazy trying to get one. The +bow, snapbow, crosssnap and now this are all cheaper/easier to get than an xbow. If you have an xbow or find one for cheap, use it, by all means. It is pointless to pay a lot of money for one, though. Unless it's the Guru, of course.
Again thank you for the compliments. This gun was partially made because I wanted a x-bow but didn't feel it was worth $200+. this is the perfect replacement for the everyday modder that wants a long-range springer and not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
A little cleaner and a better stock this could make an amazing gun.
I know its not clean but I haven't completely finished it, and i have a design for a diff rent stock.
Curses! You stole my idea and my super cool name for it. Great minds think alike, eh?
You got it done a lot sooner than mine will be (if it ever gets done...I started it like 6+ months ago), but then again I was planning something a little more complicated; it required a completely new catch and trigger.
...which I just realized is probably completely unnecessary. Holy crap, I may actually be able to complete a major project of mine!
well I have had this idea of having the ls prime like this for a while now(spring break '07) it wasn't until now that i have all the parts i needed to get it done. Glad i could help
I don't like the name (it's no longbow), but I think it's fairly cool other than that.
the name comes from the fact that its a ls "converted" into a x-bow equivalent blaster(+-bow, snapbow). but i haven't come up with a specific name for this one.
I have designed a new stock to replace the current one due to complaint of the size and weight. The new one is a lot harder to make but is a lot lighter and looks a lot more like the x-bow. Any name ideas?
