ACCIDENTALLY POSTED BEFORE I WAS DONE WITH THE WRITE UP FOR PART ONE!!!! it WILL BE UP SHORTLY.
Okay so I had a longshot sitting in my basement. It had pretty standard mods done (ar's removed, plunger head replacement, breech hole covered up) but I was not even close to satisfied. I wanted to make a this gun have lots of neat features and be a beast of a primary. We will see if i can pull a few ideas out of my ass to finish this. But onto the mods, I only have a few things done so far and am waiting for payday to buy materiel's to finish so this will come in parts. I hope to post a new part every week but who knows shit can happen.

PART 1
More accessible clip removal.

The problem with the longshot for me is that I am a lefty and there is not a clip release on the left side of the blaster making changing clips very akward and slow for a lefty. This could also be done if you are a righty and just want to be able to change clips faster.

Materials
Posted Image

Longshot
Screwdriver
Metal rod(don't know the dimensions of mine)
Drill
Drill bit(size depends on what size your metal rod is)
Hot glue gun
hot glue
Dremel with cutting wheel of something to cut metal rod with

First thing you are going to want to do is open that sucker up.
NOTE-mine was previously modded if yours is stock the internals will look different.

Posted Image

Next you need to gut all the internals accept for this piece.

Posted Image

Mark right along where the top of the shell comes up to the clip release.

Posted Image

Unscrew that screw.

Posted Image

Remove the piece from the blaster and extend the line straight across.

Posted Image

Mark where you want to drill your hole. This is where your metal rod will be going through.

Posted Image

Drill your hole.

Posted Image

your metal rod should fit in it nicely.

Posted Image

Next you are going to want to bend your rod to a 90 degree angle.

Posted Image

Mark it where you want to cut. It needs to go all the way through the clip release piece.

Posted Image

Cut it with whatever you want. I used a dremel with a cutting wheel.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Bend your rod to another 90 so it looks like so,

Posted Image

Next you are going to need to dremel out the spots I have marked on the shell, or wherever you rod crosses a wall in the shell.

Posted Image

Posted Image
Mine looks kinda crappy but its fine.

Mark how far down you want your new clip release to come.

Posted Image

Cut with your chosen method.

Posted Image

Fill in your clip release piece with hot glue to hold the rod int place.

Posted Image

Posted Image

This now makes it much easier to change clips. I will upload a video of it very soon.

PART 2
Plunger head replacement

Materials
Screw driver
1.5 inch od rubber washer
1 inch od metal washer x2
lube

Unscrew these two screws.

Posted Image

This is how to assemble it onto the plunger rod. you don't need the small washer I don't know why it is on there.

Posted Image

Should look something like this.

Posted Image

Lube it up and reassemble. This would be the time to take out the ar's if you are keeping the stock breech. If you like you could have a decent blaster now, I wanted more so part 3 is on the way. Shoudld be up in a week or so.

Questions? Comments? Flames?

PART 3
Slamfire

Materials
drill
metal rod
slamfire piece from one of the slamfire blasters, mine is from a raider
Hot glue gun
hot glue
1/16" polycarb (or another thin plastic)


Dremel these spots on both sides of your shell.

Posted Image

You are going to need to sand/dremel this wall down till the slamfire mech( which will now be referred to as sfm) sits below the wall like in the second picture.
Posted Image
Posted Image

See this,

Posted Image

Dremel it away.

Posted Image

Round this off a little bit.

Posted Image

Next take your polycarb and cut a strip of it. I forget the dimensions but you will see the size it needs to be.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Fill in this space with hotglue and put the piece of polycarb on it and make sure it is flat.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now put more polycarb on the walls so your sfm won't wiggle.

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Drill a hole in your sfm here.

Posted Image

Insert your metal rod into the hole....you may need to use glue to hold it.

Posted Image

Cut of 1/2" of the back of your bolt sled.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Now this is where if your measurements aren't right it will not work. You need to drill a hole in this part of the bolt sled, you will insert another piece of your metal rod into this hole, This rod will catch on the metal rod from the sfm and pull it forward. When the bolt is forward it needs to have pulled the sfm far enough foreward where the piece in the back that moves up and down is ligen up with the catch so when it is pushed up, the catch is pushed up.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Fill this in wit hotglue to stabilize the metal rod.

Posted Image

Cut your trigger like so.

Posted Image

You need to attach it lower on the trigger part. I used my trusty metal rods and epoxy.

Posted Image

Old trigger,

Posted Image

New trigger,

Posted Image

We need to do this because the sfm gets in the way where the old trigger arm thing is.

Posted Image

Cut the back of your trigger down so it fits. I cut mine to much and I had to put some E-putty one it so that it would push the sfm up which pushes the catch up.

Cut down your catch. I cut mine to 1/4" Round off the right side of the catch a little as well.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Cut a piece of the polycarb to 1/4" and length doesn't really matter.

Posted Image

Glue this over the sfm.....it needs to rest in the area we dremeled of the 45 to a 90. This stops it from moving back to far.

Posted Image


I have not Fired a ton of shots through this yet. I still have a few kinks in mine where measurements were a little off. I will be doing a pump action conversion for this later so that slam fire is actually helpful.

Pretty sweet. I want to try it. Does the new seal significantly improve range?

The new seal does improve range by about 10-15 feat and makes the gun much quieter as well. I am only getting 45 feet out of this with stock streamlines and the stock spring so that is why there will be more later.

Is that the same washer combo that Sputnik (I think it was him) came up with back in 2009? If not, have you compared the 2 to see which works better?

I have to agree with blue on the clip release innovation. I like to paint blasters and that often causes problems with the smoothness of the pull of the stock clip release mechanisms: THIS is a sweet little solution.

As a lefty, this seems really useful. I like how your mag release lets the mags fall out whereas the stock release requires you to pull them out.

I'm loving the actual slamfire write up for this. Are you by any chance the person that did The "Long Raider" video on youtube? () Also have you tried it with a spring setup like a [k26]/stock or a 3 spring setup? I'd like to know how well this does with a breech as well.
