EDIT: Dude that thing is pretty sweet, very cleanly done, nice job. That tank is quite large, I'd imageine the ranges are good. My question from above stands. I like the handle, is it one of those air compressors? Where did you get it?

Personally, I would not want to be within 150' of that thing. For that reason, I'd probably never engage in a Nerf War with that thing in somebody's hands.
Langley, those memories of diving into bushes whenever Proxy Server was leveled at me are coming back again.

It really does look like a Mega-Z paintball marker.

If you look closely, the crosshair appears to be a small peice of 1/2" PVC with wire in the middle.
I especially like the crosshair yu put on there. What it that off of, or did you make it from scratch?

In the future I'd suggest keeping the pressure chamber size realistic. That's more close to a spud-gun than a Nerf gun with a chamber that large. I'd say that's at least 1.5 liters of air space at normal atmospheric pressure... far more than you'll ever need unless you plan on getting many shots out of one pressure chamber.

He mentioned that that was what he wanted. 30-40ish shots without repressurising. Just thought I'd point that out.
...far more than you'll ever need unless you plan on getting many shots out of one pressure chamber.
If I misunderstood what you were saying, my apologies.

Dude will you be posting a write-up any time soon because I want to make one really bad
What he said.
you dont know anything about its performance in any sense as of this momment, yet you want to make one just because of... how it looks? meh.
Also, It doesn't look that complex, if you were at all intelligent, you could figure it our on your own with few or no question needed.
Thridly, I don't see why people are asking for write ups on homemades. It seems really stupid. The whole fun of having a homemade is drawing out plans and figuring it out yourself. Sure it's cool to borrow certian concepts from other guns but to make an identical copy seems idiotic. This is why I don't really want BoltSniper to realease a write up, because then anyone that knows how to follow directions can have one if they want it. I'm interested in seeing how Bolt did some of the stuff with that rifle but I'm not going to go and make a copy of it. BE ORIGINAL PEOPLE. Nice blaster Osiris.
Sorry if that seemed harsh, bad day.

I do know more, but I too am no expert, as have completed a reg. You are right, PB regs get expensive; from $35-$75+. Anywho, they do make $10 regs, or you could go to a junkyard of some sort and pick one up off of an old air compressor. Not the cheaper 12VDC compressors, but a 110-120VAC compressor. Usually a 2-stage or 220-240VAC compressor won't have one, but people never throw those out; They're worth alot even if they have a problem. Regs off of the former can handle pressures as high as 250 psi and put it down to as low as no pressure leaving the reg (a closed valve, if you will). I'd recommend about 30-50 psi for your homemade though.
I believe the way paintball deals with the equalization problem is to use (a) regulator(s). You can buy a paintball regulator if you want, but they're fairly pricy (for a nerf gun part). I'm not an expert on the subject though, if someone knows more about this, please correct me.
Another solution is to make a reg, but it takes a bit. If I were you, for starters, I'd read this. Then, I'd adapt the drawings to something made of PVC and anything lying around the house/shop/home improvement store. The pictures on that site do get larger, just rightclick->view image. Pretty much what happens is: high pressure (HP) air enters the reg, pushes against a piston wich is against a seal. On the other side of the seal is a wall. On the other side of the wall is a spring also pushing against the piston. At the end of the spring (non-piston side) is a SAE thread screw. By adjusting this screw, the tension of the spring is also adjusted, which adjusts how much air can be let through the piston. Less air, less pressure. Just read the article and stare at the pictures. And again, nice homemade.

I'll send you some stats.
Not really related.....but how the hell does this thread have over 5000 views????
The other day I found my BAMF writeup copy 'n pasted wholesale into a forum in China. I think yours might be there too.

I noticed a big diffrence between my gun and a paintball gun. They solved the problem i had by using a hose to conenct the tank to the gun, which is smarter because the hose will not snap or anything. The thing where you insert the tank is also mounted to the trigger. I dunno I might rebuilt this gun a little diffrently with hose and try to mount the tank or something. Ill do this if i have time but I will have to go back buy all the peices to the tank. Oh an by the ways the tank is NOT too big at all TRUST me. Its actually perfect size its very comfortable to use as a stock. Its only like 10" long made of 3" PVC. I did not think I would need a regulator because the trigger releases a tiny volume of air its pretty much regulated. This gun was designed to hold 200-250psi. And no I will not make a write up for this gun because obviously its a failed project.
I have tested the gun (before it broke) with only like 60psi however. I used an electric air compressor to pressurize the tank. It shot maybe 70ft. I could not put more pressure into the tank because i tightened a comrpession piece soo much that the thread was messed up so it leaked. I found out it leaked when I stuck it in a bucket of water. I was wondering why it would not go over 60psi. I did replace the messed up piece and this time I did not tighten it soo much.
