Still working on a sliding breech for single shot action. I have yet to order a wye from somewhere so I don't have a hopper at the moment. Lowes has some weird curvy wye but I'm gonna pass on it.

First post!
This is the 4th home made I've made. I have been sticking with air powered guns, since they are easier to make. I like this version the best. I has a brass breech that will accept standard Nerf clips. The design is heavily influenced by 3dbbq too.

Posted Image

I haven't measured ranges. 2 pumps give at least 70' ( conservitative estimate) and a third pump is extremely hard. 3 pumps usually causes the dart to windmill. I haven't tried elite darts yet either.

Built two blasters before the war last weekend but haven't been able to take adequate pictures of them until today.

First up is the RainbowPup:

Posted Image

Skirt seal with an omni-directional catch. The seal just past the tee is a 1/2" ID grommet. That seal worked well for a bit but deteriorated after 100 shots or so. I had an O-ring seal prior to this that worked better. I'm going to switch back to the O-ring.

I used a 1 1/4" to 1/2" tee in place of drilling a hole into a 1 1/4" coupler. This set-up requires no machining and introduces no more dead-space than the original design. As an added plus the 1/2" port of the tee aids in disassembly by acting as a pass through hole for a screwdriver (to remove the screw(s) in the handle).

Polycabonate barrel spacer. Measured using calipers and cut via scrollsaw.

Posted Image

The handle pieces and trigger are cut from 3/4" cutting board that I had on hand. Smoothed the edges with a belt sander. My cleanest most comfy handle to date. I also don't have to worry about damage from humidity or moisture.

Posted Image

Next up is a SNAP version of the BullPac (Kane's design):

Posted Image

Most of the parts used in this build were recycled from previous builds, including the handle, trigger, priming grip and bow arms.

Posted Image

7" of draw with a single piece bow (roughly 18" long on each side). Pre-eminent plunger head.

Posted Image

The seal past the tee is a 5/8" grommet, which seals like garbage. Switching to an O-ring if I can find a suitably wide one at Ace.

I haven't done stuff in a while. Mainly cause my life got problematic. However things are getting better, and here's a sample of what I was working on the past few days;

Posted Image
Essentially, this was an attempt to shorten the overall length of a pumpbow, by moving the handle and stock as far as possible while still being comfortable. The protective plastic is still on it because I'm lazy and because it's still fresh.

Posted Image
The templates are courtesy of LT. Stephan, who's templates I like a lot more than the normal pumpbow templates. all the editing was done with a ruler and a sharpie, so some stuff isn't perfectly aligned, but has enough wiggle room so that it works. The cuts are horrendous because I haven't touched my scroll saw in months. If you're waiting for something from me, you'll get it soon, but I want to make sure my quality is up to par again before I start touching raw materials again.

Posted Image
In reality, it's about an inch or so longer than my pumpbow. However with the barrel attached it's about 4 1/2" shorter than my other pumpbow. Not much, but It's a start. It was also a decent way to get back into making homemades. The stock was an attempt to balance it out more, and is made from 1 1/2" thick wood. The stock has thick foam padding for comfort, but has not been shaped yet. It works well and hits hard, and is a gift/repayment for someone.

Posted Image
Here's a teaser for something I'll be working on once I get the chance. CAD is by Louie. There won't be templates for this because I don't know how and I'm not sure it'd work anyway, but I'll use the basic idea in building my own.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

Just a little teaser of a new WIP of mine. Semi-auto, 8 shots, integral 3D printed magazine/breech. The cylinder fires it as it pulls the barrel back. I will NOT be selling these.

So, here is my finished PumpSnap. It gets standard PumpSnap ranges, and is painted blue and white, with "BHAJJ94" written on the pump slide. Some of the notable features are:
Custom handle and priming handle (both hand sanded and cut with a bandsaw)
1 1/2 coupler on back of thinwall pvc (for extra support)

Drac's PumpSnap needed some refurb after a good bit of warring.

So I went ahead and modified it into a 3.0 design, new trigger made and attached, and repainted all the parts because they were getting worn from all the use.

This polycarb Trigger is pure Amazingness in terms of comfort and feel, likely going to be a standard feature on all of my future Snap Builds.

And now I have a Pile of awesome sitting in my room. But only one is mine...LOL

Let's keep the pump-action awesomeness going here, shall we?

I now present for your viewing pleasure, the finally complete, Pump-Action-Rainbow-Longstrike. Or, PARLSK lol. I think I need more letters to add to the acronym.

Posted Image

Some other angles:

Posted Image
Posted Image

Closer shot:

Posted Image

I cut into the shell at the bottom to get the pump grip closer to being in line with the force of the spring, for an easier prime. It worked amazingly, the prime is easier as a pump action than as a pull-back the way it was prior to this update.

Posted Image

The grip is PVC covered in self-adhesive craft foam sheet. Very comfy.

Posted Image

This top plate is to help keep the whole thing in line. Yes, it's a bit bulky, but it works very well. The other option would have been to make a rail system in the bottom covering plate, but this was made before I had decided to cut into the bottom of the shell.

Posted Image

This track in the stock serves two purposes, first, it keeps the round plunger rod from rotating, second, it prevents the plunger rod from bending upward if the pump grip is pumped improperly. It doesn't take much force to cause an unsecured primed plunger rod to bend, and this basically keeps it down. It doesn't take much force to keep the plunger rod down either, but it's important that it's done. Also, supa-straight cuts! (not lol, but it still works perfectly fine, and doesn't look horrible).

Posted Image
Posted Image

Stock has the unneeded clip holders removed, and the whole thing has a nice layer of self-adhesive craft foam for cleanliness aesthetically.

Posted Image

You can fire any comments/questions/flames at my inbox.

Props to Ozymandias for prophetically predicting how this project would eventually end up being pump action, a full year in advance lol.

Both of my pumpbows together. Similar builds (the red one is a retooling of my failed bullpup). The Red paintjob is actually a candy red. You can't really see it in the picture, but if you look at the inside of the side plates you can see some of the reflections of the standoffs in the paint. Aluminum barrels courtesy of Roboman. The Red one still needs some work, and I have to make the stock, but otherwise It's a useable blaster. Also the handle is made of 3/4" polycarb, sanded and smoothed to a polished finish (which is going to be painted anyway). More fun stuff that I owe people to come.

Using my snapbow to fire mongos at HAMNO 1.3 worked decently, but I wasn't really happy with the range, rate of fire, or accuracy. So I fixed at least two of those by making this MEGAabow with a mongo hopper.

Small SNAP with 6 dart hopper and easy prime (hence the craft foam on priming handle) for small friend. Hits about 80ft with very gentle prime. Springs can be easily upgraded (mine is same build and hits 100-110 with first dart).
I can commission these, just PM me here or on BritNerf.

I guess its time for me to contribute to nerfhaven. Ive been working on this for a while. Its my first working snap in general. Its based off of rorks snapbow design.

I am taking name suggestions, but Im thinking the SNAPABOW would work. The a stands for Actual, since this is actually bow powered.
