E.L.A.B is a blaster of my design, based off of the Mattel Maximizer. E.L.A.B is unique because rather than using a compression spring, it uses an extension spring. The lever action works by using two sheet metal bars with a 6/32" bolt going into the lever, and 1/2" delrin. This 1/2" delrin will allow you to put slots easily into it so the 6/32" bolt will move freely. When the bolt is in the back position it will pull the slotted 1/2" delrin into the catch where the delrin will slip under and stay in the locked position. the spring is extended, and the plunger head (of your choice) will create the seal.

I know there is a lot of dead-space but the blaster should fire singled best with a breech/ speed loader the best.

 

this blaster is on paper right now, and I do not have the money or time for it

 

Just a quick idea for a new home-made

 

(Also I would appreciate if you people could post ideas for improvements)

 

Thanks for tuning in, - Leland

This sketch doesn't work for a few reasons. The lever pulling on the metal bar shown in the picture must make contact with the back of the channel in the plunger rod to prime the blaster. In the primed picture, the plunger rod is all the way back but the bar is still in the same place, so as of now it still needs work. I was bored enough tonight to do a quick sketch of how this will probably be achieved.

It'll need a lot of 3D printed parts and some more intermediate machining, but its more than what you have now.

 

I'm intrigued by this. If I ever have any extra time outside of my schoolwork, I'll model this up in Fusion

You might want to take a look at the Wipeout paintball pistol.

 

Basically the same concept, you could use the internals for reference. Good luck.

Yeah that's pretty much what the sketch is. I couldn't find a good pic of Maximizer internals so I went from memory on what the pistolsplat internals looked like.
