Here's FANG prototype 3. I made this much in mid-March and said very little about it publicly. A number of you have already seen this. What is shown is not complete, however, this prototype has served its purpose very well and I will not develop it further.

I had originally intended to finish it so that the Firefly turret is advanced with each trigger pull, but I recently decided to redesign the gun substantially to reduce length and weight to improve maneuverability (among other things). The same basic layout will be used in FANG prototype 4 with shorter barrels, a smaller air reservoir, stronger construction, and a number of new features like a pump.

Posted Image

A high-resolution photo is available here.

Presently I do not intend for FANG 4 to have an automatically advanced turret as I'd like to focus more on my other ideas as well as compare good manually advanced turrets against automatically advanced onces in reliability, ease of operation, and RoF. Manually advanced turrets are easier to make and their RoF may be very acceptable for most Nerf wars.

Worked on my +bow. Planned on doing something about the spring/plunger rod setup but we didn't have the right springs. No big deal.

As fun as HAMP's are, they are a pain in the ass to transport, and mobility becomes an issue if you are not in a wide open space. I have an answer to this:
Posted Image

I call it the Mini Mega HAMP.
Only 2 feet long (back to barrel tip).
Shoot's 2-3 dart at a time.
20 shot hopper clip (it's as long as the HAMP).
Petg nested in red Pex.
Plunger tube is 3" PVC.
Homemade wye.

Helical Hopper Clip

Posted Image

To operate, you have to blow on the check valve coming off the clip. The clip is merely a segment of FlexPVC (buy here) attached to a coupler leading to a small length of clear PVC. As you blow into the check valve, darts feed into the small piece of clear PVC.

Posted Image

The only drawback is that it's possible to blow too many darts through the clip and out the barrel. I might try to fix this problem, or learn to deal with it and not blow too hard. It's incredibly easy to get darts to feed through this stuff.

That is both crazy and awesome at the same time Ryan. The check valve at the end is an awesome idea, and of course allows you to easily load a few darts at a time while you move, wiithout having to remove and end cap, turn a ball valve, or otherwise affect your ability to fire when you need to. How many darts (and at what length) are you getting to fit in the loops?

Since you say it is very easy to blow the darts through, would it be possible/practical to add another loop or two? What I'm thinking here is that if you can get enough darts in there to last a whole round (at least with semi-conservatiive shooting) there would be less reloading time - which I know isn't exactly your favorite aspect of hoppes/HAMPs. It would probably start to require a bit of support for the feeder as more flexpvc would start to add additional weight, but it might be worth the extra bulk. Just a thought.

I thought I might add that flex pvc can be bought in lesser quantities for those who cannot afford at 50' roll here.

Is it because your barrel is so loose that you're having a problem with blowing darts out of the barrel? Would a small ring of lesser diameter brass (like a 1/2" stub of 17/32" stuck in a PETG barrel) possibly solve this problem? I know hamps will fire fine with a tight barrel, they just fire much better with a loose barrel (my hamp had a spinger fit for quite a while).

The clip is roughly 7-8' long from eye-balling it. I haven't actually measured the clip at all, but I can get roughly 60-70 darts in the clip. I want to experiment with this stuff a bit more and figure out the maximum length I can effectively use before my lungs can't get darts to feed anymore. From seeing how easy it was to feed darts through this smaller segment, makes me think I can at least double it.

Wes:

FlexPVC also sells their product by the foot; I just linked to 50' rolls.
As for the problem, yes that is the reason. I have to do more testing with it to see how easy it is to blow darts out the barrel. I've only tested and fired this a few times. If it ends up being a problem, I might just try using some magnets to fix my problem.

Wow, that is already an impressive number of darts. Loops are deceptive, it doesn't look nearly that long in the pic. If you doubled that (120-140 darts), I think you could easily spend a whole round without reloading. I hereby declare that you are always on my team if you are wielding a blaster with this form of clip... :D

I know your using a hamp, but is there any really significant range decrease (like 20-30 feet) by using such an absurdly large hopper clip? Either way, that thing looks like it can kick major ass in any war,

Ryan, try buying some vinyl tubing, put talc on the inside to remove the sticky-ness, and cut section, plugging one end with a rubber stopper. You can make a pretty flexible magazine/hopper out of that. I took about 2 feet of vinyl tubing and was able to make a hopper that I can bend and zip tie back onto my HAMP. Shit's awesome.

Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.
