Hello, guys.  First post here on the Haven not new to Nerf, yada yada yada.

 

Anyway, I need to know what the smallest back pressure tank available would be.  It doesn't even need range per se, I am looking more for something to give a nice little "putt" when fired.  I know the Hornet tanks are fairly small and may work for what I have in mind.  However, I am still curious as to what the smallest back pressure tanks you guys have come across are.  My project in mind being is make a typical RSCB but have a back pressure tank at the very end of the RSCB to gently push a dart into the barrel to insure minimal power lost from firing and little to no escaping air.  

If anyone has built something of similar, I would greatly appreciate your input on this.  I hope to have this idea up and written here for the Haven sometime after Christmas.

The smallest actual tank that I can think of is one of the three from the Spiderman vs. Venom Dart Tag set.  Those things are /tiny/.

Your RSCB idea either sounds like the Auto-loading RSCB that JSPB created a while ago (he goes by 3DBBQ on NH) or an inline clip, although I can't really understand your post exactly.

I can't really understand your post exactly.

Basically, my idea is to have a convetional RSCB built into the gun.  And as opposed to an end cap capping of the end where you generally put the darts in, have an airtank of some sorts that gives a nice tiny little poof of air lodging the next dart to be fired into the barrel.

Yeah that's basically what JSPB did with his latest blaster except he used a small pump to provide that air instead (eliminating the need for a trigger mechanism for the small back pressure tank in your design). Good thinking though.
