Hello All! This is my first topic. I'm sorry if I placed this in the wrong part of the forums. But I am working on a homemade blaster and would like to base off the plunger tube to the Jolt and Bigshock because of the particular design I am going for. I don't have a jolt or Bigshock. That's why I am posting this right now.

1. Buy one
2. Take it apart
3. Measure it

But realistically there's very little reason to try to replicate a stock blaster perfectly since you're not likely to be able to source identical tubing, o-rings, etc. in order to reproduce the stock components. Just take the planform and make a new design.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Thanks! I have another question though. Would be a 3d printed Plunger Tube count as a viable option?

No. The surface finish on printed parts is terrible and won't work for a plunger tube.

In addition, many 3D printed parts are not airtight.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..
