When I first saw it, I didn't get it. Once I saw the video it made more sense. This is actually really cool. I like creative mods. Fix up that paintjob and your set.

New paintjob is better...

This is a really inventive mod, I have to give you props here, but I can't follow that write-up at all. For the portion where you were explaining how to make the actual break-barrel system, I had to turn my head sideways to see what was acually going on in that picture and read over the directions a few times. You may want to go and clear that up by elaborating on how to place things, and you know... how it works. I watched the video earlier today (I think I saw it in the Mods/PJ's thread), and saw the rubber band functioning and just though "wow". But if I had not prior seen that video on the blaster being demonstrated, there's no way I would really understand this.
Overall though, I really, REALLY like this blaster; all yours needs is a new paint job (or if that's in the process, it looks like you have a primer coat down right now, I can't exactly tell), and you'll have a pretty awesome primary here. After seeing the way you set this up, I think this would be interesting to try on a powerful shot gun blaster like the Big Blast.
Oh, and did you get any of your ideas for this from Bourbon's break-barrel SS2 perhaps? I remember seeing that last week or so.

yes and no. I was inspired by the shotgun, but while I was drawing a blue print I remembered seeing the SS2.

You did a nice job with the hinge system. The diagram is also conveys all the necessary information, so don't listen to the criticisms there; you do better work than them anyways.

Seriously though, this mod is quality. I watched the video, and it looks damn efficient.

This mod here greatly reduces my abject disdain for Longshots. Had I not butchered mine for parts, I'd probably do something like this to it.

All it needs is a trigger guard, but that's probably just my personal preference talking.

I'd have fun painting a monster like that. The flat white just doesn't do it justice.

Alright, that diagram you edited in makes things MUCH easier to follow. Diagrams are always great.
I'm still pretty blown away by this, it really is a great mod.

I've been thinking for months about doing this to a PAS. Nice to see it done successfully. I have to say, I like it!

I love the logo on the side of the LS.
I'm still not sure about the coat hanger tube.
Why is it necessary? Can it be substituted for something else?

The hinge with the cpvc inside the 3/4" piping seems very loose. Does it wobble around at all? (Without the barrel in the coupler). What I would have done is that I would make the hinge out of the cpvc and a cut-down piece of the front barrel that was cut-off, as it usually fits smoothly.

And I'm pretty sure that 1/2" cpvc has an OD of 5/8".

On a side note, I like this idea, but it could have been cleaner.

Awesome. Break barrels really speed up reload times, don't they?

If I was you, I would read this: http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=18793

Link a turret and/or breech. An originally intended benefit. Different portions of the lever move different distances, making it very simple to link systems to the priming.


It's split's lever action blaster. I'm sure if you combined you break barrel design with the Longshot Foregrip, you could prime the gun by opening the barrel, similar to the homemade in the thread. If you go to the hardware store and buy an actual hinge (instead of rigging one together out of CPVC) it could easily handle the stress of the priming action. It'd be like a Doubleshot... except singled, and actually good.

The only reason I use it is because it fits in the hole. (perv)
