Call Kenny Loggins... 'cuz you're in the Danger Zone.

I built a SuperPAC the night before Cataclysm. Full unibody, seven inches of draw, bow arms mounted all the way forward for maximum mechanical advantage. Shoots laser beams - supa range, supa accuracy, supa rate of fire, supa unfair. Pictured below is our resident fashionista IceNine demolishing fools. I left this behind with Kane and Ryan, since I don't think the TSA would appreciate it.

RainbowPump for a guy in Singapore. Features Rev. 2 Priming, an omnidirectional catch, 3/8" Polycarbonate, 7" of draw, 11" of a K45 spring, Vertical Pump Grip, a super seal, and dry-fire-able via 4 rubber grommets to absorb maximum impact.,

Sorry for the bad photos, lighting wasn't ideal.
Also, don't use wooden handles, or triggers in the rain...the wetness softens the wood and makes it easy to break. This is my third set because I was attempting to range test outside.

I just finished a fresh homemade Manta Ray shell (I'm calling it the Manta+ for the time being) for Zinv. It's in three sections for efficient shipping/storage. I adjusted the design slightly for this second one and majorly streamlined the construction process. Also pictured is a healthy assortment of hardware for Zinv to use when he mounts it on whatever blaster(s) he chooses.

If you want one as well, I've tentatively set the price at $50 shipped (to USA buyers, additional shipping charges will be added for international buyers) for a Manta+ shield, some nuts and bolts, and plenty of spare zip ties. More or less what is pictured below, with a few adjustments. Send me an email at venomm213@gmail.com if you're interested.

Super zip ties. If I recall correctly, I got this whole tube for about $10 at Menards.

I managed to finish a fixer-uper I've had for a few months (Thanks Lt.Dan). I bought this Pumpbow for the sake of time, and because it had an aluminum priming bridge I wanted for my own pumpbow. It was honestly in a terrible condition. I replaced the front most side plates, catch, handle, back stock plate, plunger rod, and plunger tube. Now it's a +bow. The side plates have been painted with a couple of coats of silver so that they still have a slight transparency and plastidipped the handle.
Posted Image

The integrated titan was made pretty much specifically for the Draconis missiles, though I may need to redo the templates and lower it some depending on their size. Still needs a trigger and new PJ.

Here's some more pictures of the SuperPAC (a bunch of people had questions about it). I'm not going to post a writeup - just take a look at Carbon's SNAP 7.5 if you need guidance.

Posted Image


The bow arms and hopper are offset by 45 degrees, in order to give line-of-sight clearance, and also to give the string more clearance from your left hand
Posted Image


A slot is cut out of the PVC for the hopper, and I used packing tape and goop to seal the coupler. No pretty craftsmanship here.
Posted Image


The front T was a donor from one of Kane's AAbows. The tip of the barrel is flush with the hole.
Posted Image


Ghetto plunger rod. Nylon, skirt seal, and a epoxy ramp with washer catch. I planned to make a rainbow catch for this blaster, but we didn't have parts for it in the shop the night before, so I switched it to a SNAP style catch.
Posted Image


Nothing special here. Cheerios had to fix the trigger - it was originally a nylon l bracket, but it snapped off during the war.
Posted Image


Super special stock. This hooks under your armpit, providing much needed leverage. The gun is basically unusable without this.

Bolt action SNAP. Only shoots 90-115 cause I screwed up the front bushing seal.

Mechanically fastened everything, for you, Diamondback. Or for making sure the trigger doesn't fall in the Texas heat. This is the original shortened pumpSNAP, updated to fix some breaking issues it had.

The catch is screwed on.
Posted Image

The handle is attached with the use of a really dremeled 1 1/4" to 3/4" reducing tee. The trigger is guided by a nylon spacer running through the tee as well.
Posted Image

Using this tee necessitated making the priming shroud out of 2" pvc so it could fit over. There are spacers on the front and back of the 2" pvc to guide it.
Posted Image

And an overall shot.
Posted Image

There's also a check valve in the plunger head now, but I forgot to take a picture of that while I had it open.

My take on Beaver's latest, finished it a few days ago. Go big or go home, right? 9" draw because I fucking can, and the whole thing is 4' 7" long, 5' wide. Average 10 year old boy height.

Posted Image

Oh yeah, it's a rainbow. Used a new style of plunger rod that uses less than a foot of nylon. I'll take pics at request.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Size comparisons. That's a full-sized 8" draw AAbow. I used to think it was big.

Posted Image

So how unwieldy is it? The center of mass is right at the front of the priming grip at rest. I need to work out more to be able to use this more than half a round at SPANO.

All it needs is some pink zebra-striped duct tape.

I call it the +Five (Bullpup Buzz Be Big Blast). It made it's debut today at NJW7 and passed the field test with flying colors. I'm putting this here because other than the tank and pump, it's homemade, and could probably be made using a PVAT with some adjustments to the templates. I'll be making a write up sometime soon. Numa-T is going to be making official templates, as the ones I made used graph paper, a ruler, and a approximated pencil markings.

The Idea was Taerkitty's, I just made it a little prettier, so huge thanks to him for the original design.

The Painter's bow

Posted Image

4ft 3/4in cpvc arms into a 1/2in to 3/4in pvc tee that has bored out 3/4in pvc in the outputs. 9in of draw, 12in barrel, 7 dart hopper, adjustable ranges from poop to over 100ft.

Posted Image
Pictured with 3in pvc arms tied up to 3ft of rubber tubing. Much more compact, much tougher draw, much more scary. I definitely recommend trying out rubber tubing if you haven't yet.

"Bullpac" is taken, so I call this the Bowpup. Basically a SanchoPanza powered by rear-mounted bow arms. It amuses me.
It is extremely powerful - I clocked it at 250fps on my chrono with a foot-long hopper.

FIRING VIDEO

Posted Image


Has 6" of draw, 20" bow arms, and is 23" long.

Posted Image


The bow arms are off-set, so they don't smack you in the face. This doesn't have a proper stock right now, but for the next one I'm going to use a PVC cross instead of a tee, and attach a standard PVC stock.

I really like side plates. Sure tubes are just as efficient but I think side plates look a lot cooler.

I made a Rainbow with a really nice thumb hole and stock butt. Orange PJ that fades into the color of the wood. Two catch notches: one at 3/4 compression and the other at full. It's pretty basic but nice. I finished it up two days ago but I'm just now getting it on the fourms. I kinda don't mind pull back over pump-action now. :P
