So is this a Canadian spring or a McMaster spring? I'm surprised the PT doesn't shoot itself out of the shell. Very nice use of limited materials overall.

It looks like he has a screw through the shell above the handle to secure the PT, similar to how people secure NF rifle PTs. Very nice work MIG; I really like your plunger rod design.

I don't have access to McMaster Carr up here in Canada. It's from a local company here in Ottawa, Canada that's catered towards professional contractors, "Brafasco."

They sold me a whole box at cost in exchange for a couple of my nerf toys. :)

Thanks. I'm particularly proud of that little discovery. It works really, really well. I've shot off more than 500 rounds and see no signs of wear or stress. The weight difference between this and my first CPVC attempt are night and day. At my springs' 62lbs rated load, I don't see a [k26] doing any damage to it either.

Through both sides of the shell into the rear coupler.

HOLY CRAP!!!!

This is great...gimmie.

Man this thing looks like you could really get some really nice face diddle.

Any idea if this could shoot arrows?

Any shell damage? Reinforcements?

Am I the only one that wishes you could use the stock pump handle?

@ MIG That's one heck of a blaster you built, absolutely insane.

@ Goldie He said in the video that he took in the Hurling (Think that's how it's spelled) rink that it clears the 150' rink with no problem.

Interesting side note, in Canukistan, Hurling is a sport, in the USA, Hurling is a side effect of a night of binge drinking.

And when she looks stunned show her a picture of the blaster.
But if she gets excited. You're in.

Nice Work MiG, I have been wondering if Brafasco sells springs or not, now I know. Convenient as I have one just up the road from me.


Interesting side note, its actually Curling.

I think he got it confused with this. Also, have you consider selling kits for these? (Without the shell obviously)

That would probably be unnecessary since we Americans have access to Mcmaster. If one of us were to replicate this, it would be a lot easier to do so because we wouldn't have to Macgyver all the parts. MiG's ability to substitute nearly every part of this project with dollar store and thrift store type items is just astounding nonetheless.

Agreed. I just found the Plunger Tube on McMaster Carr. #: 8585K18 I am sure we can find a plunger head too if someone checks the measurements.

Nice techniques going on here. I'm interested in hearing about the long-term durability of that plunger rod.

A note about your write up method (all images): it looks good and is easy to read, but I'd advise against it in the future. Since it's all images, this write up is unsearchable (and thus unfindable) by NH's search or by Google.

Also, if those pictures ever go down, there'll be nothing left. I've seen some old writeups whose pictures have disappeared. Most of them still had their text, but they were still difficult to understand.

All noted. Thanks. I'll add some more descriptive text when I can free up some time.

Awesome Technique!!! Basically a SnapBow but for people who don't want to spend or don't have the money to buy a ton of PVC.
