Let’s do that. Or something better.
THE TORNADOBOW: AKA, THE IMPREGNATOR.
In case you don't want to read this, here is the write-up set to a fantastic song.
Start with a stock Tornado. Gut the awesome ring shooter, save it to duct tape to a Longshot shell. Save the trigger and yellow priming handle.
Cut a plunger tube (1-1/4" OD x 1-1/8" ID polycarbonate) that is the length from the front of the gun to the rearmost circular support, and machine two PVC sheet supports. No templates for anything; I did this all by hand in the workshop.
Make a plunger head using one of Split's awesome plunger head dealies. I used mad fatty polycarb for both sides of it and tightened it onto 3/8" PVC square rod. It's the business. Vacuum loads backwards; no air loss forwards.
Cut some 1 1/2" ID polycarbonate tubing and solvent weld it over the front part of your plunger tube for support. Then, put in a coupler.
Put everything back in the shell to make sure it fits.
If yes, you can solvent weld the plunger supports to the plunger tube (AND NOTHING ELSE, AT ALL, ESPECIALLY NOT THE SHELL).
Make a spring rest out of the same 1/4" PVC sheet. Good stuff.
Throw in a K26 and see how it looks.
