Hopper problems with my modded Big Bad Bow
Posted 21 April 2013 - 09:46 PM
My 'wye' is a 1/2" PVC Tee with the top cut off, and glued to it is a 3" segment of 3/4" PVC that stands on a 45 deg. angle with a 1 1/2" segment of 1/2" PVC pounded into it that is also cut at the same angle. The rest of the space in the 3/4" PVC is reamed out to fit a hopper clip.
The barrel is about 4 1/2" of 1/2" CPVC which is inside of 1/2" PVC and is reamed out really well at the end that goes in the wye.
I have tested shooting it with my modded 3B using 1.25" elite darts and 1.25" headless + stemless streamlines. When using these darts and the 3B with the hopper, it has a hard time getting the dart to clog the hole in the barrel, and takes several shots before it exits the barrel. It will not get near the ranges it does singled.
I hear that 3Bs are not able to use hoppers but I seen a user with an overhauled 3B was using one on his, and since my hopper works really well (at least as a automatic blow gun), either the darts I'm using or my 3B is not usable for hoppers.
My 3B has 3 springs in it(stock spring, stretched Stampede spring, and some really strong spring I stretched), AR removal, aluminum reinforced ring, and the white ring from the AR inside of it is taped to the plunger casing with the front casing jammed onto the tape(this basically made it air tight).
What do you think the problem is and what might be the solution?

Also, don't stretch your springs. It has been very well established that this ruins your springs while providing only a temporary increase in strength.
