This won't be as in-depth as my other write-ups because most of it has been done before.
I started out with a 10 2/4 length of 1 1/4 pvc. I then cemented an endcap on it with a hole in it the cpvc will slide through.
I toook the 1 1/4 to 1/2 bushing and persuaded a 1/2 cpvc coupler into it.
Then I persuaded some cpvc into the back of the coupler so it was flush with the bushing.
Then I killed some deadspace and some things I don't like. i.e. those tactical rail tabs, scrap brass, air restrictors, and I think there is a penny in there too.
Add some padding on top of that.
Back to your plunger chamber. Make a clothespin trigger and secure it down where you need the catch to be.
Mine was about 2.5in away from the end of the endcap.
Make one of Rorks Superlative Snap Plunger Heads.
I used a +bow washer and 2 7/8 fender washers instead of his stuff. This is not the end picture this was the first try.
Cement that onto 11 3/8 of cpvc.
Make your barrel. Mine is about 14in it could be shorter. Bore out a tee so you can slide it on the barrel and glue it down.
The length from the end of the tee to the end of the barrel should be enough so it can go into a coupler fully, and glue a 45 degree elbow on.
Once all that is done slip on your spring and assemble the plunger body.
Those don't go all the way through they barely go into the 1 1/4 pvc otherwise they would rip up your rubber washer.
I bolted it on in case I need to get back in it.
Now for the fun part the stock.
Sketch out however you want it too look on a 2x4. Make sure you leave room for the plunger body.
Then cut it out.
I lost the picture of the bottom piece.
Cut a hole for your trigger.
Sketch a groove for your barrel.
Then cut it out using a router.
Don't forget a slot for your bolt handle.
Bore out 2 couplers so cpvc slides easily in them.
Secure them down in the groove. Sand the area out so they don't break the wood.

Now all that's left is to secure the plunger body down.
I used a set screw at the back e-putty, super glue, and INDUSTRIAL strength hot glue not that pussy lo-temp shit.
Sand corners edges down and other things and you're done.
Ranges are about 100ft. it is very comfortable, and I even made a video.

The only thing I don't like it how it was meant to be a "loser" rifle.
Over all nice job!

but, that breech system is probably one of the smoothest most durable looking things I've seen come out of the homemade thread. it makes me want to build one, a snap that is. Just like yours.
My hat is of to you sir.
You can fool some people all of the time and everyone some of the time, but you cant fool all the people all of the time, but it sure is fun trying.

You got it from the authority! Damn Carbon, I miss Nerfing with you. You aren't as keen on public indecency.
Yeah, I agree Dangaard....SNAPs have never been exactly attractive. Effective, but they wouldn't win a beauty contest. And that's what's great about this build: not only does it add some class, but it adds usability. Nicely done. I gotta build one of these, too.
Yeah, this SNAP is really cool. I honestly want to make one too. Just to feel cool. Because I bet it feels really cool.

Dangaard- The breech is nearly indestructible, and it is awesomely smooth as you said. The gun as a whole can probably be run over by a car and it would still work. AKA it WON'T break
wasdf- If you take your time, and can build a snap; this ting isn't very hard. The bolt for me is a nice length because I can flip it forward without moving the rifle out of my line of sight. However putting a dart in is another story.
After my friend has had it for a week he told it is quite accurate. He has yet to break it, and he miss-treats everything.

Thanks, nate the great
2 slingshot weights is basically a steel bullet with a foam sabot
You have a tampon on your gun. There's your problem.

Read and find, Grasshopper. He said it was a +bow rubber washer, so the stickied +bow thread (and related parts list) might be a good place to look.
Where can I get the rubber washer for the plunger head? Can you get it on mcmaster?
Thanks, nate the great
