My Next Big Project
Posted 16 March 2005 - 06:38 PM
Idea 1: Long range (130+ ft) rife, with a secondary shot for better RoF. I was thinking building 2 different tanks each connected to its own and to be able to switch which tank Im pumping to. Both tanks would also be connected to the same barrel. The secondary tank would be much smaller which would allow me to pump it more quickly with the sacrifice of range. I would also to make it have a spring fed clip, similar to Bolt's most recent creation.
Idea 2: Everything would be the same as the former only each tank would have seperate pumps and barrles. Breech loaded for both barrles, no clip. Basically an easier version of the first one.
Idea 3: A clip fed mid-sized blaster. It would be about the size of a AT2K and have ranges of around 100 ft.
Idea 4: A semi auto high powered rifle, clip fed. No secondary shot.
This is what I have so far. I'm leaning towards idea 1 because it would be more of a challenge and more kick-ass when finished. I am looking for what you people want. Tell me which idea you want first off, WHY YOU THINK THAT, and any suggestions on the specifics of each gun. I will also look into completely new designs from people. I hope to have an idea of what I'm going to do by this weekend so I can draw out some plans.
Im also planning on taking the latter chunk of break on making this thing look hotter than... a really hot girl? Ive already got an idea of what I want it to look like but suggestions are appreciated.
For those of you that have read this, thanks for your time and please make suggestions.

Make 'em all except #2? That's what I'd do. Spring break is almost here, you'd have time...
I don't really like the idea of 2, but 1, 3, and 4 sound pretty awesome to me. But I think if you make number 1 and it fails, you should try number 2.
And for number 4, what do you mean no secondary shot? Mod an SSPB and tape it on the side.

A magazine really isn`t all that hard to do. I would say the hardest part is finding a good spring. i`d say give it a shot. If it proves to be too much of a bitch its easy enough to convert it to a breach loader. I do that anyway when I don`t want to use the mag.
I think autoloaders are just not practical in Nerf Homemads. It takes so much energy to cycle the actino that there is little left to propel the dart. Hasbro came up with their ingenious plunger system on the RF20 and PC but we could never emulate that with PVC. It would be too heavy. The spring in that system is what propels the dart and that is limited to how strong it can be.
I personally have plans for a fully automatic. They are a bit complicated and I don`t think it could be simplified much. i dunno if I`ll ever build it but it would probably not be handheld.
Best of luck on your project. Let me know if I can help you out any. And be sure to post pictures of it when your done......or before.

Bolt, fully auto would be sweet. I've been pondering it for some time and have come up with a slight modification of, I belive it was, Langley's modification of, I belive, the zero valve (that was confusing). I think it would work for automatic but am not ready to try. Good luck with that man, if there is anyone in the nerf community who can pull off a fully auto gun, its definately you. And yes, I will probably need your help some time during this project.
Keep posting everyone.

I was going to but I want people to leave an opinion and justification, not just quickly push a button and leave.
This might have been a good topic for a poll, but i guess thats just me
