I'm certain I missed something. If anything is unclear, just ask. I'll be willing to take pics to clarify whatever needs clarify-a-mi-fication.

I'm not saying "WHERES THE PAINTJOB, DIZ", but I am saying I'd like a few things to be bumped up to add to it. Even just some flat black on the stock and a slightly better constructed plunger rod handle would really make this thing look as intimidating as it really is.

Amazing work though man. What barrel length/material are you using?
How badly is the gun rattling when it's fired/how loud is it currently?

29 degree temperatures + 25 mph wind gusts = painting fail

11 inches of CPVC, but again, the weather conditions have not allowed me to test this thing like I would like to outdoors, and my indoor test place is currently being used.

It's loud enough to startle the birds outside, and loud enough for my mother to hear it two stories below.

I prefer to use mine stock (more or less). A first shot spring is an excellent replacement spring. While it IS a hair shorter than the stock, but it increases range considerably.

Yeah, I always forget that to put the weather into consideration, the college downtown has a spray painting room where you can set the temperature of the room and it has a big fume vacuum.

Alright. Do you think the loudness is something FBR or whatshisfaces modeling clay sound dampening could really help?
Speaking of integration, are you in need of the sawtooth scope/considering the sawtooths scope for the integration?

Back to to the matter of the handle, if you don't already have plans, Taking some lexan and putting in the over (when you're home alone for a long while so you can get rid of the smell haha), or a heat gun and bending is something you could definitely try.

Yes. Foam insulation around the exposed part of the plunger tube (in the channel where the clip would normally go) would definitely reduce the noise, but then I wouldn't be able to see inside the plunger tube, which is something I kinda like about the setup I have now. I guess it's a trade-off.

Speaking of integration, are you in need of the sawtooth scope/considering the sawtooths scope for the integration?


Nope. Any integration would go into the clip channel.

The handle is pretty much set. It's not the most comfortable, but it works, and it's removable in the event that I need to change the spring or something like that.

I know exactly what you mean about being able to see inside the plunger tube.

Yeah I guess "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"


Alright, that's all I wanted to say. Once again, amazing work, man.

Glad you put those rods to use! What method did you use to attach them together? They were only a foot long so...

I drilled a hole into the back end of each and inserted a 1/8" steel rod to join them, then filled the holes with glue and glued the rods themselves together.

So far it's holding up quite well, though one of my holes was slightly off-center and as a result it's a bit crooked.

wing'd man: added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole! haha!


Anyways, I am not sure that you mentioned the type of spring that you used.
If you could just say what type it is and where you got it that would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Dizzy, you should probably cut down the magazine shell, and cove the hole with the cuttings. Then you won't have a wonky front end to fool with!

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

I actually like the holes in the front to see down into the plunger tube. Also the "magazine" is more like a series of tubes attached at the back to a little frame with some notches cut into it, so I don't think that would work very well.

Besides, I have plans for that space.

The recent trend of homemade internals is really cool.

Now potentially any blaster can be revived and/or improved with a basic homemade internal swap.

The shell of this blaster is also really cool which is why the new internals make it a good (function and looks) primary.

Quite so. I was very glad to be able to finally get a Sawtooth shell. It's very comfortable, especially with the CPVC stock, and has plenty of room for integrations.

I promised myself I wouldn't call it a "poor man's xbow", but the similarities are definitely there after "rifle-ization".
