Finally I got a hold of a way to get some pics up here for you guys ta see, and here are, for all intents and purposes, my two favorite blasters I currently own:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
The one on the left was made by Rork, features a superlative plunger head, as well as an integrated backwards half-snap just incase.
The one on the right was made by myself the other day, also features a superlative plunger head, and super excessive zip tie usage, but as opposed to the integration, I decided to give it a modular forgrip.
Both seal supa dupa well (I can hold my hand over the bushing and entirely stop the plunger rod about halfway through the PT), and both shoot farther than your +bow.

Small +bow modifications.

Posted Image

Spring spacer and cut-down bushing combine more draw (almost seven inches now) and more compression (almost full deflection). Shaft seal stops dead halfway down plunger when I plug the bushing.

Posted Image

Supa' nice.

Posted Image

Hopper with Ryan barrel, Zorn staging, and Spice funnel.

Posted Image

Dinosaur sticker. Foam in handle.

With rape darts it's shooting Ryan's +bow ranges. Does mean things with a speedloader, slightly less mean at higher incidence with hopper.

I made a new +Bow.

Posted Image

It was originally supposed to be my first pump action +bow, but that design failed so I was left with a +bow and no side plates. So I made up some standard side plates and put it together.

Posted Image

It has a shortened plunger tube with a [k26] spring and grommet plunger head. This puts much more precompression on the spring so it makes a nice loud pop when you shoot it.

Posted Image

Fullish compression FTW!

I really like the layout of the stock with this gun. Even though it's normal length it makes the gun feel much smaller and more maneuverable. It improves accuracy by a lot IMO. Also the priming action is a lot more fun.

Posted Image

Also single side plates are awesome.

So Beaver and I made some SNAP Pump Action Crossbows last night:

Posted Image

Posted Image

DIS SHIT IS HUGE!!!!!

Posted Image

Posted Image

OMG VENOM USED A CLOTHESPIN TRIGGER!!! It's super sub-optimal!

Posted Image

Built 100% from Hardware Store parts, and by that we actually mean it. No cheating with ordered K26s. Also, we managed to find some of the last stock of the Magical 1.5" thinwall PVC! Full Video Write-Up coming soon!

A spring-power conversion for the Pump Action Crossbow. This blaster is the same one I'm holding in venom's above post, in a spring-powered configuration.

This is my LDNR. I hope to do a full write-up on how to make it but for now I'll explain and show pictures and diagrams of it.

This is the overall gun.

Posted Image

On the back is the plunger, (I'm going to diagram the whole thing farther down the page) which has a 1/2" PVC Tee fitting on it for a handle.

Posted Image

Here's the middle of the gun where it reduces from 2" to 1/2". The metal piece is something else I'm working on, and it has no use right now. I have a slip 2" to threaded 1/2" reducer so I can swap out barrels.

Posted Image

Here's the laser/light combo.

Posted Image

And lastly, the end of the barrel which has a larger portion because it was from the end of a 20' stick of 1/2" pvc.

All you pussies posting in here, and you really need to ask yourselves... Does your blaster shoot balls? I thought not.

Suck it. Longer range, more durable, better shaft seal.

PAPbow Rev.2

Posted Image

This one was made for Gears.

There are a few changes to my first design here, and most of them can be seen here:

Posted Image

-Plate on the plunger rod extends to ride between the two stock rods
-It's also rounded so it hurts less if by some chance you put an appendage in the way
-Priming plate does the same
-Rectangles attached to the side plates keep the arms from coming up when cocked

Lastly, it now has an adult-sized stock and grip:

Posted Image

I'm very happy with its performance and is as comfortable and useful as +bows can get.

Here is my Pump-Action-Cross-Snap-Bow

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The stock/handle is super comfy, the white stuff on the back of the stock is super squishy foam. The trigger is surprisingly comfortable even without an L-bracket or some other proper trigger.

*Note: the zip ties on the grip only hold the clothespin on, the stock is screwed on.

Me and Venom built second batch of pump-action SNAPs, based on Carbon's SNAP 7.5 Pump Crossbow. Since I did all the work, I am going to just call it the Beaver Variant just to give it some sort of distinguishing name. This is the Mk2 version, and improved version of the blaster that I posted in Carbon's thread. Click on the pictures to get a full-sized view.

EDIT: Looks like this is basically a SNAP-2. Albeit, with many years of community improvements integrated into the basic design.

Posted Image

A [k26] powers the pictured blaster, with a 7 inch draw length (bringing the spring close to full compression). The cold weather is screwing up my dart fit, so I was only able to get it to fire 85 feet with a 10-shot hopper. It ought to clear 100 feet easily with proper dart fit. The whole blaster is very long, but is not at all ungainly.

EDIT: It does, indeed clear 100ft with proper dart fit, and a 10-shot hopper. Very nice.

Posted Image

The spring sits behind the catch, and a PVC cap with a 5/8" hole acts as a stop. The rear length of CPVC prevents the spring from binding up against the walls of the plunger tube, giving the blaster a very smooth feel. The big bolt acts as priming bar for the pump grip (which is a short section of 1.5" thinwall PVC). The priming action is shockingly easy, even with a [k26] installed.

Jobar still needs a shotgun barrel. Integration is held on by my SNAPbow PVC bracket system, plus a bit. Apart from the angle, I can prime the SNAP while holding the jobar (which makes an excellent foregrip). Also, e-tape!

EDIT: Finished version.

My +Bow got a little TLC from both Louiec3 and I.

Posted Image

I recently had Lou replace my plunger head and my old aluminum plunger tube with a better one. This thing shoots stupidly hard. I then personally gave it the most leet tape "paintjob" ever and gave it a fore grip.

I also made multiple attachments.

-A single barrel with a brass "shotgun" barrel

-Buzz Bee and BBB arrow barrels (for when I have to frag shield wielders)

-A normal hopper clip

-A retardedly huge hopper clip for when I decide to be an asshole.

Another one of the things I've been working on, all the parts worked great. This was my first homemade, and partially based around the construction techniques in my Mirage (see sig :) ), and of course Splits RTP (Mad Props!). Machining was great, super clean. Waited for a month to get a shipment of [k25]'s from the US (I currently live in China), put it together and... It broke. I made it as a noob and so did not understand how weak Acrylic was, and why it is NEVER used in moving parts. It still looks nice though, and is a great reminder to how regardless of how nice the machining is, if you don't think things through it won't work.

Posted Image

I learn't a lot from it though, and am putting that knowledge to use while building the next in the line of the Mirage series.
