So, I got a Quadshot last week at TRU, and soon stuck a clip on there because I didn't want to deal with the annoying task of getting a good plunger-turret seal. What I've done to the gun is add a longshot spring to the stock one, lube the plunger head a bit for a slightly better seal, and stick a Sch.40 1/2" PVC coupler on there for my clip. I've also done Badwrench's torsion spring reorientation for reinforcement, and dremel out the stopper on the back of the plunger rod. The clip holds four 2" stefans out of the Lowe's brand foam; It's thin foam compared to some, so it can slide into CPVC without twisting, and has a tight, but not too tight fit. My barrel is very lightly flared out to prevent misfires, and is 6" long.
The problem I'm having is that no matter what I've tried thus far, I can't get a consistent clip off. I've searched for the last day or two trying to find some answers, and I have--- somewhat. This is the best answer that I've found so far. Nerfer34 has some troubleshooting down at the bottom as well, which I followed, but no luck.
What happens is about 80 or 90% of the time, the first shot of the four is just fine; I'm getting around 75 to 80 feet, just what I hoped for, and it's pretty accurate. But what it's done today is I then fire the second dart, and it fires the rest of the entire clip about 40 feet. I honestly have no idea what's going on at this point; I've tried using 17/32" Brass as my barrel because my darts are tighter in that than CPVC, but it still shotgun loads--- except about 25 feet less range. I've tried a different piece of CPVC, thinking that maybe that one was just 2 or 3 hundredths of an inch wider, but no cigar.
If it helps any firther, here's a picture of my set-up:
It's just CPVC sanded a little bit and hammered into Sch. 40 PVC.
