The second coolest thing I have ever seen on these boards, the first being either the Doomsayer or the hopper clip. Regardless, major props.

Wouldn't there be a lot of friction on the string? Re-stringing it at a war would be a pain in the ass.

There isn't any friction on the string when it's firing. The slots are plenty big (1/2"), to allow the string to glide through easily. The string is also aligned by the bow arms and the tensioning.

The second coolest thing I have ever seen on these boards, the first being either the Doomsayer or the hopper clip. Regardless, major props.

What? Doomsayer?

Psh. This thing gets at least twice the rate of fire. Mostly because it doesn't have 12 springs in it like people normally do to get it to shoot far.

Hopper clip? Yeah that's definitely number 1.

So what makes it pump-action? Do you have a hopper addition?

I like to think that the cocking slide, shown in three of the four images in the first post, which draws the string and plunger rod back to the catching point, would be what qualifies this as pump-action.

Oh, and in case the pictures weren't enough, reading the words helps too:

The pump grip merely pushes back the nylon bow string, until the catches, obviously. I'll probably add a return spring for the pump later.



And yes, he typically runs this with a hopper. In fact, he has probably never actually Nerf'd with it with any setup other than a hopper.

Excuse me, I'll go get you a tampon. I assumed pump-action meant something along the lines of the slam firing in raiders or alpha-troopers, not the same priming action used in a nite finder. And none of the pictures suggested the use of a hopper, nor did any of the words.

In any case, it's a pretty nice looking bow. Will the constant stress on the nylon stretch it out eventually, or do you have an easy way of unstringing it when not in use?

Be happy Ambience answered your questions politely, when they are in fact incredibly dumb and you have no position from which you should be admonishing him.

There is nothing in the term "pump-action" that would suggest slam-fire. The commonly termed "pump action shotgun" certainly does not have slam fire. Neither do any "pump action" modifications for the recon or longshot. Pump action indicates in real firearms:

action mechanism in a modern rifle or shotgun; a back and forward motion of a sliding lever ejects the empty shell case and cocks the firearm and loads a new round

which when applied to Nerf Blasters generally means priming the blaster. In magazine-fed blasters this extends to indicated loading a new dart.

Finally, if you had bothered to watch the video, you would see use with a hopper. Or if you had even an iota of cognizance, you'd realize that a hopper provides the best ROF for a non-magazine fed blaster, as seen in pumpbows and hoppered hand cannons.

Please remove phallic objects from around your various orifices, including, but not limited to, the buccal one.

This priming action is not the same, or even remotely similar to that of a nitefinder. It's exactly the same priming motion as the pump action shotgun, and the raider (although unlike the raider, it cannot slamfire). Your hands stay on the same handle during the entire process of priming, firing, and repeating.

The bow can be easily loosened and tightened, or even unstrung, but it's not recommended to unstring it completely just because the string may get caught on something / tangled up / damaged / whatever. There's a couple pictures of the process for V-notched bow arms on the Aabow writeup http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=20086, but the basic idea is that you use a knot to keep the string in the V-notch, and wrap around the bow arm outside of the knot to tighten the arms, until they are tight enough. For the final loop around the bow arm, put the string through the V-notch again. Ideally, you will want to do this approximately symmetrically on both arms.

I meant cool as in "chilly." People who sit in freezers are quite often cool as in "chilly"
By the way, in the video you look... impoverished.
