Okay so this project is a little weird... A while back I was given a piece of wood that looked like a rifle, so I turned it into a rubberband gun. But that wasn't powerful enough for me... So I turned it into a friggin crossbow... or slingbow... since it's technically powered by rubber... And now I've decided I want to make it shoot nerf darts. I've never made a homemade blaster from scratch, so I've got a couple questions that are out of my area of expertise.
Here are some pictures:
My plan is to mount a plunger tube where the barrel currently is. I'm thinking I'll either salvage the plunger tube from an old longshot I have, an old ball pump I have... Or I'll make one myself. Which is why I'm here.
What would you, the community, suggest I use for my plunger tube, and what would be the best plunger head I could use? If any previous homemade build threads come to mind when reading this thread, please link them to me. I'll be looking through them myself as well.
Personally I'm thinking using pvc/cpvc for the build, because in my head it seems like it would make things easier during assembly. But once again, I'm not experienced in this field so I wouldn't know. All I know is that I'm gonna try my best to overkill this build as much as physically possible.
And for a side note: If you guys have any tips for me for this build, I'd love to hear them.
