-About 6'' of 9/16'' brass, give or take
-About 5.5'' of 1/2'' copper (yes, copper)
-A small section of 3/4'' CPVC to stabilize & sheath the copper
-Dremel (for cutting brass)
-A set of files
-1/2'' CPVC or some other thing to use as a ramrod
Step 1: Cut a 6'' length of 9/16'' brass. If you need a picture, you're fucking stupid.
Step 2: Wrap e-tape around the brass until it fits very tight into the longshot's faux barrel. Make sure you don't cover the ends of the brass tube.
Step 3: Ramrod the brass into the faux barrel. Make sure you have your breech open so that the brass stops when you hit the dart tooth.
Step 4: Cut a 5.5'' length of 1/2'' copper pipe.
Step 5: Push the copper pipe down into the faux barrel, and make sure that it goes slightly over the brass by about half a centimeter. Your brass tube should be inserted into the 1/2'' copper pipe at this point.
Sorry about the blurry picture.
Step 6: Wrap the protruding copper pipe in a thin layer of e-tape, and cut a small section of 3/4" CPVC. Fit the CPVC over the copper, and hot glue it in place. Decorate it as you wish.
OH, NO! NOOOOO!
Effective ranges for my particular longshot are 50-60ft, and about 80ft angled with weighted streamlines. It was about 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside when I tested it, so ranges are likely to be better in the summer.
