I singled my longshot but when i put the dart in the barrel and close the coupler that dart doesn't even leave the barrel.
I know there was a thread but he got hid darts to go 50 Feet. Thanks.

Are there any places where a significant amount of air can escape?

When you fire it does any air come out of the barrel?

Try to stick you finger in one end of the barrel and make it as airtight as you can. Then, simply form a seal around the other side of the barrel with your mouth. Once you have your mouth around it, blow. Try to find any air-leaks that way.

The air is coming out of the plunger tube where the air restrictor sticks through. How could i fix the seal between the cpvc and plunger tube.

Make sure it's snug. If you turn it over it shouldn't immediately fall all the way down.

Your darts are probably too tight. What is your barrel made of? I have some darts that are too tight in cpvc, and i tried them in my longshot with a cpvc barrel, and they didn't leave the barrel either. Try different foam and see if that works.

I have somewhat of the same problem with a singled longshot because it won't fire even with a LS/BBB Spring Combo. I cut down the little circle ring on the boltsled so the priming handle could pull a litttle bit more and catch. But I used Ice's way with the half of the CPVC coupler and the 3/4 ring around it. The 3/4 ring has plenty of E Tape on it and it very snug. I really don't know what is the problem. Can anyone help me?

when I made a singled longshot the front barrel was long enough to extend slightly past the nose of the gun. I fired it and my darts flew about 20 feet. I cut back the barrel a good amount and saw a dramatic increase in ranges. Even though the darts I was using worked well in cpvcthe long barrel wasn't efficent.

I fixed the problem by wraping e-tape around the coupler in the chamber. I now get 95+ ranges with a 10 inch barrel.

Good idea, this guy.

By the way, added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole. :lol:
