I came up with this idea after my latest war. It utilizes a gravity-fed clip, and a barrel that moves in a way similar to a pump-action rifle.
Note: My tested one is a three-round clip that I have attached to a red AT2K. Ranges with the clip are:
Ranges without were consistently around 100 with 2 darts with a good-sized dome of hot glue.
HOW TO USE
You pull the 8 CPVC barrel forward, exposing the underlying piece of PVC at the bottom of the clip. Take 5 darts, and load them with the weighted end facing away from the coupler into the clip. It works best and with the least amount of difficulties if you use 2 darts, since the clips diameter is around 2.1, thus mostly preventing the dart from turning and jamming. Once the five darts are evenly in the clip, you can put a cap on the clip to prevent the darts from falling out. You pull back on the barrel, which takes a dart and shoves it into the back of the clips barrel and into the front of the guns barrel. The barrel attaches to the coupler also, making a seal. Prime the gun, and fire. Push the barrel forward, which causes a dart to fall down, and then pull back, chambering the dart. Prime, fire. Repeat until the clip is empty, and reload.
The pictures above are of my second one, a five-round, detachable clip for a clan member. Ive briefly tested it with other weapons, and it works best for an AT2K, due to the long 8 barrel, plus whatever existing barrel the gun has.
If anyone wants detailed instructions (without pics, sorry) PM me. Just as a forewarning, you will need
7 of ½ PVC
8 of ½ CPVC
Dremel multi-tool (THIS IS A MUST!)
About 4-6 sticks of hot glue
1 ½ CPVC coupler
Some 1 mm balsa wood.
