HAMP Action. Ignore the 16 inch barrel. It's the longest I have at the moment.

I made an inverse-plunger HAMP. Shoots farther than your Recon.

I built a modified KISS for a LARP:

I removed anything it didn't need to function, put the handle on at 45 degrees instead of 90 and added a sling made out of a small binder clip. Without the sling I found that the bungee tried to pull itself over and past the ammo, jamming the gun.

Yep, but the plastic is so old I doubt you will ever find clear red Polycarbonate, unless its in a scrap yard.

My +bow in it's current incarnation. Originally commissioned from Ryan. The stock butt was made by hipponator. The aluminum sideplates and plunger rod were made by louiec3. The aluminum is awesome, it gives the frame a lot of rigidity.

Well, I guess I should post up my SNAPBow. It's one of my favorite blasters. It has 6 4-dart RSCBs on a turret, and a 25th dart can be preloaded in the tee. The RSCB turret is moved by pulling it back, rotating it 60 degrees, and letting it spring into the tee again.
Posted Image
I used 5/8" by 3/4" polycarbonate for the RSCB tubes, with 3/4" by 7/8" polycarbonate on the ends. The tee is actually a 3/4" CPVC tee. It is connected to the blaster using 1/2" PVC, which has e-tape wrapped around it to fit in the tee. Darts can easily be loaded from the front of the RSCBs.
Posted Image
The darts stay in the tubes pretty well. The only issue is that if you are swinging it forcefully and are unlucky you may lose a dart out the front occasionally. The RSCB turret is attached using 1/2" rod and 6-32 threaded rod. The clothespin is also not glued down and slides as you pull the trigger
Posted Image
The priming handle slides in a slot in the plunger rod. The plunger rod is made from 9/16" by 5/8" nylon, which fits nicely into the CPVC fitting. The mass of the moving plunger is about 50 grams. If anyone knows the mass of a normal SNAPBow plunger, please tell me.
Posted Image
You can just pull the handle back and let it go. I don't have ranges, but it works well at wars. That's my SNAPBow, I hope someone gets some good ideas from it.

Someone commissioned a modified +bow... Spring hits full compression, plunger tube and front panels are 1" shorter, skirt seal, etc etc. Shipping in these two parts reduces cost and still makes it easy to assemble; I recommend it.
Posted Image



The FireBow: (for sale soon)

I don't like the trend of putting (what are essentially) +bows into other shells and calling it a new homemade, but I have to admit that it's an easy and reliable method. In the spirit of those qualities, I tried it, with some new twists.

Posted Image
As you can see, it uses the molded comfort of the Firefly shell, with the power and durability of the +bow.

Posted Image
I streamlined the templates a good bit, so when you put your cheek over the stock (without cutting your face open!) you're aiming directly down the plunger tube and barrel. It's an accurate and fun gun.

Posted Image
Here you can see the big new feature - the quick release pins that attach the +bow to the shell. I mainly did this so that you could carry the gun around easier, since it breaks into two smaller sections, and reassembles by just pushing those pins in. They're 1/4" steel rods and they hold the body to the shell very securely.

Posted Image
The new priming handle is coated aluminum, and is very comfortable to prime with your left hand without changing your aim.

Posted Image
The streamlined side panels removed the traditional +bow spring rest, and because it's removable from the shell, the spring couldn't attach between the two. As such, I came up with this new type of spring rest. It's simply a set screw in the bottom of the back panel holding a spring onto the head of a screw in the side of the catch. The bottom of the spring is wrapped around the catch's screw, so it's on there sturdily. It works pretty well.


The +bow section itself is modified with the skirt seal head (which really ought to be standard by now), shorter plunger tube and front panels to make the spring compress more while maintaining draw length and panels with more area around the screw holes that normally crack. It's a potent, comfortable, reliable and collapsible blaster. I like it.

MEGAHAMP

"Naked"
Posted Image

Triple seal with wooden spacers on the plunger.
Posted Image

Homemade wye, as they are pretty much impossible to find in the great white north.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Notes:
Shit load of hot glue used (around 40 sticks), she's sturdy.
The seal is almost too good, you either need to be pretty strong, or fairly tall (leverage) to use this one.
Also, a tip for anybody thinking of making a MEGAHAMP, make sure it fits in your car before you finish it, this one was close.
Dollarama tape is better than Home Hardware's.

A mini-HAMP I built this morning in 30 minutes. My 8 roommates and numerous friends and I play all the time in my house offcampus. This is a single muzzle loader (newbies don't use breeches right, and we like to play with sticky darts anyways) and small enough and strong enough for indoor games.

Brass barreled.

Updated my breech design.

Posted Image

Posted Image

It still has the o-ring, it is just in front of a piece of CPVC so it can't fall out.

I used a 9/16" spade bit to drill the holes at the end of the slot, then connected them with my band saw and dremel.

I also used a drill to open up the slot for the screw, which is flush with the inside of the barrel.

Works great, seals perfectly, won't break, etc.

This was made for a guy on HQ.

Gah what's this bizness?

What? No HAMP's yet?
Posted Image
5 minute $2 HAMP
Found at a dollar store (Dollarama for you Canadians), it is basically a foam covered plunger that was originally intended for water.
Has a plate on the front that lets you select from 1 jet of water, or 4 streams.
All you have to do is glue a coupler on the front and plug the 4 small hole's in the process.
Posted Image
No need to open, just glue on a coupler and you are done.
Not really a homemade, but it has the spirit of one, that, and it is bright green.

Yawnz. Very obnoxious commission (and just between you and me, it was wayyy more work than it was worth):

Anyway, Longshot with homemade internals:

Priming/firing/special effects video:
Posted Image

I'm sure many of you have seen this, so I'm just going to post it here. I call it the RTP, it's a fast and powerful (150'+ easy, when singled) homemade. Simple, cheap to make, the main goal was to make a homemade where you don't have to move your hands to prime it, increasing rof, especially with a hopper.
Posted Image

An added bonus is that after it's primed, you can move the plunger tube forward and back for a HAMP effect as a mercy kill or whatever.
Edit: It is actually finished (since before Deal), I forgot that this is a progress picture. The writeup should be up this weekend.
