A New Singled Longshot.
Posted 31 March 2010 - 08:35 PM
I wanted to do something un-necessary in every way.
That lead to me making it have one giant plunger tube.
I'll skip materials because if you want to do this you'll read.
First, you'll want to cut a 20.5" long piece of 1 1/4 pvc. In that you'll want to goop a 1" to 1/2" bushing (I think), that is wrapped in e-tape for snugness, and has some padding on it.
Now cut a 1.375" polycarbonate circle (1/4" thick). In the center of that should be a hole that cpvc can slide through easily.
You'll Want to attach that to the back of the plunger tube by 3, 3/8" 6-32 screws. They need to be in the triangle pattern for it all to fit.
Now you'll want to sand about 10" on each side of the plunger tube down. It should make a rectangle flat area. You can see how it fits in the triangle pattern in the above picture.
Grab a knife,wire cutters, pliers, and dremel, and diddle the hell out of the shell.
Make a plunger head on a cpvc endcap. It is in order 1 1/4 fender washer, 1 1/2 rubber fender washer, 1 1/4 rubber fender washer, and #8 finishing washer.
This is held on by a 3/4 8-32 screw, and a 8-32 locknut.
Cement some cpvc on as your plunger rod. When it is in the shell it should stick out the back about 1"-1.5".
The spring is a section of 9662K31. It has about the same power as an AR-15 spring, so a stronger one is needed.
Cutting the catch notch is annoying. First everything should be in the shell and assembled. I pulled the plunger rod back as far as it would go then I had my dad mark a line where the shell ended on the cpvc. I then cut a slot about .3" wide and 1/8" deep on that line.
The catch was cut out of 1/4 polycarbonate. It is a 2"x1" rectangle. You only need one slot for a catch spring. I neglected to take measurements of where the hole is, so you can do it on your own. The catch spring should be quite strong.
Close it up, and your done. I will probably put a bolt through the front so the plunger tube won't rotate.
You need the duct tape on the back because in the process of making the shell fit you destroyed those screw ports.
First is just the gun.
Second is the gun with a 16" barrel
Third is the gun with a 16" barrel and cocked.
In ending, I need to find a better spring, and just do fine tuning on the gun.
As for ranges it is late, but I did shoot two shots. With slingshot stefans they cleared my driveway and the road. (My driveway is about 100ft, and the road is like 25ft.)

LotusNerf- Oh yeah this is overkill in every sense of the word. My point is it can be done...
MindWarrior- Too late I already cemented the tee on the plunger rod.

Edit: Why do you keep taking pictures of your guns in the bathroom?

Forsaken_angel24- Video is in the works, but it won't be anything special.
Zorn's Lemma- It is supposed to be rediculous...
TantumBull- I hold it well clear of my face, and the plunger rod is above my shoulder by about 4in. The plunger rod on this doesn't wobble much so it is safeish to hold it like that.
moosa- No, I made a 18" barrel and it goes farther. I really don't want to find the best barrel length because I don't find my darts after I fire them, and finding the barrel length involves lots of firing.
ficksterkid- It is 4ft long of course its hard to use.
meatballica- Yeah the catch idea was inspired by you refined by me. As for the bathroom it has the best lighting in my house, go figure.
Mehku- I'll bring it to MANO 2 just remind me. I think we could squeeze it in for a round...

Apologies to K9Turrent.
20:07- Mr_BadWrench: Blade, If they do someone would have to duct tape twitch to a phone pole so everyone else gets a chance to buy one.
20:08- Aimless: Duct tape wont do.
