My RainBow; the pink and black

Posted Image

I used 1/2" ID polycarbonate for the plungertube (not advised as it costs 8 times more than PVC and there aren't any PVC fittings that really fit). I used a [k25], a magical 3/4" to 1/2" reducing coupler thing for the front and a 1/2" OD washer sandwich.

Posted Image

The handle is similar to PACs

My RainBow. It has a non-retarded handle. And SlapFire! (I did a crappy job of making the catch on this one, so I can fire the gun by slapping it)

Well this is my first post on the forum.
Now I couldn't decide whether to put this under modifications or homemades so bare with me.


Posted Image

I basically replaced the spring power of the 3b with SNAP-7 Mircobow arms. I got the idea from Ice Nine's coupling bow conversion.
Now i know it isn't the prettiest but it works. Sadly the gun is only getting about 60feet average, but I think thats because there was a terrible headwind when I was range testing and I have crap CDTS.
I plan on make some real darts and giving it a better range test.

Posted Image

Now on the bowarms I found that the 1/2" to 3/4" CPVC couplers would crack from the strain of the bowarms, so after replacing both couplers on either side I hammered on about a 1/4" piece of 3/4" PVC over each coupler end and I have yet to have troube with cracking or breaking. I don't know if anyone else had the same problem as me, but it is a viable reinforcement for that part of the tee.

I got around to making more homemades. And I guess i seem to be following a trend of bows 'n such. le sigh.

Posted Image

Posted Image
Used some of that very small but very tough flex pvc for the plunger rod because the priming (tube?) kept bending the vinyl tubing i had there instead. Put some of the vinyl inside and boom, no worries about it bending and not priming.

Posted Image

Posted Image
This piece is called a wye/tee combination. Its a great handle. I hate seeing snaps and other such homemades with wooden handles amongst all the PVC. It looks unnatural to me.

Posted Image
When primed the plunger rod is visible from the stock tee.

And while I was at it..
Posted Image
The bow "head" i made interchangeable, so i decided to experiment a little on this design. I call it the Y-Bow.

Posted Image
I didn't quite get the arms exactly the way I wanted them, so i just bolted dem bitches down so they wouldn't come flying off by accident when primed.

Posted Image
Have to leave the thread kinda loose, its a tough prime when its more than just taut.

Posted Image
The arms curve beautifully.

Posted Image
Still needs some tweaking, but I think this design has potential. Maybe mechanically, maybe just cosmetically.

This is... BOW

Posted Image
it's about 4.5" tall, the barrel on it is 20". The cross section is identical to those on PACs and it can be taken apart down to the cross assembly.

Posted Image
Cutting this slot was a real pain, at the back there is a catch which can work but I found it sort of a pain and I have since made it so that it doesn't work.
It has an 11" draw and puts out 16 in^3.

Posted Image
I reamed out a 1/2"PVC coupler and attached it to the string for easier pulling, then there's a 1/2" to 1 1/4" bushing, a 1 1/4" coupler and the plunger tube of 1 1/4" PVC.

Renatus. Inspired by Fome's pump-action SNAP.
I still need to attach a stock. Ran out of glue.
Posted Image
Also, yay for PVC handles!
Gah. Impatience got the better of me, and I accidentally touched the handle before the screw cooled. Not fun.

Lubed with pure petroleum jelly because my silicone lube seems to eat away at the rubber... it turns black.

Made my PAC more dry-fireable than it already was. Now makes far less noise firing than the click of the catch notch setting.

Posted Image

This should work on most pump action blasters, and probably a few others. It's nice to use the tensile rather than compressive strength of the material to take the load, because tensile strength is vastly greater for most materials.

edit: Note the glare is not another string. 2 knots, 3 holes, and 2 1" ends of string sticking out of the T. The loose string could be eliminated with relatively minor design changes.

LAMP, guys.
Posted Image
Actually just a manual SNAP. Uses the Superlative Plunger Head.

About 14 inches long. This was the only 1 1/4" PVC I had. Nevertheless, it fulfills its main objective: To make mass-producible homemade raiders. O-rings would make this more mass-producible.

It's not uncomfortable at all, though that's only because I am a short Asian kid. One hand on the front bushing, one hand on the handle. Or you reverse the PVC elbow and hold it that way.

Pump action SNAPbow. Clears 100' with slugs with a bad seal. The bow arms are identical to those of a PAC.

Posted Image
I used 1/2 pvc encaps to keep the bow string from slipping out of the v-notches. They fit very tightly over 3/4" cpvc.

In building this, I discovered two things:

1. Pre-eminent plunger heads suck...the catching is too rough.

2. PACbow arms don't work for regular bows. They have to be used on something with a trigger.

EDIT:

For when I need a missle shot in a pinch-

My first snap, yet to have a trigger. Also, the t on the end just broke off, so I bolted it on the other side. It's a 1/2 inch long screw, so it only goes through one side. Is this ok, or should I get a longer screw? I think my problem was before it was too close to the end of the cpvc.

Little discovery- 45 degree PVC bell curves in the conduit section work great on choppers- it's made to funnel wires around a curve and works just as well with darts. I lopped about an inch off the male end (insert jokes here) of mine to keep a low profile, and used a little etape on clip and bell curve to keep everything snug.
Now, to an actual homemade- I got an ObsoleteBow awhile ago and have been making small adjustments to it.

Posted Image
The PVC foregrip is based around a 3/4"x1/2" PVC tee. Also, if you're building one of these (Why? There are RainBows now!), use 5/8" long screws on all nylon rod connections, and use lockwashers.
Posted Image
There's a new (to my knowledge) spring spacer- my long-winded description is on my flickr post. Spring now hits full compression, and the thing shoots hard.

This is a hoppered HAMP I made as an experiment to see if I could make a HAMP shoot as far as a +bow, without having to slam the plunger super-hard. I'm pretty sure I succeeded. It's as long as a nitefinder, longshot, magstrike clip, and 2 longshot clips.

Another SNAPistol, following rork's advice. 3.5" of plunger draw, homemade plunger handle, and oversized handle. Glorious hopper clip capability!
Dollar PVC breech. Deceptively good airseal.
Edit: Heh. Only PVC can be used to make a breech like this, when the breech is opened it's really not sturdy where the slot is cut out.

It's got a nice wooden handle, trigger, and spring rest, as well as 6" of draw. With that, it's outshooting any +bow out there.
