A better version of the MP SNAP that I made awhile back. It doesnt take very many materials, or alot of time to make.
Posted Image
Theres alot of room for customization.
Posted Image
Primed
Posted Image
Safe
Write mode commencing

Materials needed
1.5" PVC
1.25" PVC
1" PVC
3/4" PVC
1/2" PVC
Adhesive of choice (I usd Gorilla Glue)
Clothespin
Metal L Bracket or something else that could be a trigger
O-ring (not sure which #) it should fit around 1" PVC snugly
1/2" PVC endcap
1/2" PVC T-joint
Various screws
spring of choice (make sure it fits around 1/2" PVC, I used an ACE# 49 *not pictured)

Tools
Can be achieved by a dremel, a drill, and a hacksaw

Begin with 16.5 inches of 1/5" PVC
and cut a 1.1x6" rectangle aproximatley 5.75 inches away from the front of the blaster
Posted Image
Then drill a hole 2.8 inches on the bottom of the 1.5"PVC on the backside, also make an indentation 2" away from the back
Posted Image
Here comes the plunger/piston assembly
Posted Image
the main part is 8.65" of 1" PVC, put the o-ring towards the front as pictured and I just glued it on (It stayed even when dry firing with no lube)
Posted Image
next cut a .5x.75 hole 1.25" away from the back
Posted Image
now fit 5.5' of 1/2' PVC into to .5" of 3/4" PVC and ut it so that the 3/4' is flush with the end of the 1/2" PVC and fits in flush with the 1" PVC also drill a holw for your choice screw and counterbore it so the screw is flush with the plunger, I just attacked with the drill bit piece of my dremel
Posted Image
Now dremel down the area before the slot so it makes a ramp
Onto the handle
Posted Image
I used 3/4" PVC for the part that you hold, it uses your basic clothespin trigger setup I used a section of 1.5" PVC for the top piece
heres some detail shots
Posted Image
Posted Image
Attach your handle to the back ofthe 1.5" PVC like so
Posted Image
Now we need a bushing at the back of the blaster, you could buy a 1.5" to .5" PVC bushing but I didnt feel like doing that so I used 1.25" with 1' inside, with 3/4"Pvc inside of each other
Posted Image
Make sure its not longer than .75"
Posted Image
Dremel out about .5" of the back of the 1.5"PVC so it will let the 1.25" fit inside snugly (mine wouldnt fit)
Posted Image
Place the homemade bushing in the back (a little stuck out)and drill a hole for the choice size screw on both sides
Posted Image
Make sure that the screws for the bushing dont extend past where the 3/4" PVC is, otherwise it will block the plunger spring guide
Posted Image
Get your T-joint and cut the bottom off
Posted Image
Posted Image
Place it 1.85" away from the back of the plunger which should be inserted into the 1.5" PVC
and drill two hole on both sides of the t-joint
Posted Image
Make sure that the screws that you use for the t-joint have screw heads that extrude to the same thickness of the 1.5' PVC that way the priming handle wont go to far forward or backwards
Posted Image
Put a 1/2" PVC handle on there
Posted Image
heres a homemade bushing I made for the front end of the 1.5" PVC, its 1"PVC wrapped in electrical tape with an O-ring. This will allow me to fit n 1/2' PVC couplers, wyes, and other attachments
Posted Image
Posted Image

92'
96'
91'
93'
93'
94'
95'

Those ranges are pretty impressive for a e-tape seal with an o-ring and ace #49 spring.

I like the simpicity of it. this would be a great mod for a noob wanting to make a homemade.

Talking about Mario Cart gamemode:

Sounds fun... I wonder what people that have no idea what you are doing think when they see a bunch of guys with balloons tide to themselves shooting each other with toy guns.

Very nice. Ditto to what Billy said: this will be my first homemade too. What is the yellow piece that you use for the trigger?

Thanks, the yellow peice is just from an old water gun that I found lying around. Its the most comfortable trigger ever.

A lot of homemades are scary looking because of their complexity to build, as well as exotic parts. Nice job on making a not-quite-as-scary looking homemade. Nice ranges too.

Nice, your trigger is the size of your handle. Classy.

The trigger reminds me of a razorfin, but backwards.
So the priming handle slams forward when the gun is fired?
And those are flat ranges, with only a glued o-ring?

True about the razorfin, and I was gunna ask the same question. Usually people have skirt seals for homemades.

I put a bushing in there for the ranges, and i eventuallycarved the PR front out like a LS PR so the o-ring isnt glued in anymore
