Tossed my expanded Hornet tank in this piece, modified a Magstrike pump that had the bladder attached, and I finally made a chopper that works. Don't mind the holes, those were for another project that went the way of the Dodo bird.

Just finished the paintjob on this up today (my first)-
I got this thing of Flash about two months ago. It has a 1" thinwall PT and a full [k25] inside, fitted with a PVC/CPVC slide breech. Gets really good ranges.
Not the prettiest PJ ever, but it'll do. Since the Sawtooth shell is so detailed compared to more modern stuff, I pretty much had to brush everything on.
A note about sawtooths- they're super comfy. Much more so than crossbow handles, in my opinion.

Seeing as we have an influx of new members I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone of that rule. The next infraction will result in suspension, as per usual

the Raider stock is attached to one side of the shell. I plan on adding a strip of polycarbonate to the crossbow that will stretch across and connect to the stock via a screw so it's a little sturdier.
Can't speak for ranges too much, but with the stock spring and a Rfsg spring it can send darts smacking the wall down the hall out of my lower power homebrew hopper. Still working the kinks out of it though.

Next, my current primary, my Predator Missle:
Next up is my super awsome sidearm, my BigFinder:
(Note:the barrel is way to long)
This nest blaster isn't mine, it's DARK NINJA's (he doesn't have a camera). He made it to look like some grenade launcher, I can't remember which one:
Next up is my absolute favorite, my Nite'n Load!
Nest I have MY version of the RSCB longshot:
And finally I have my CPVC breached TTG:

All brown parts on my PAS painted red. The hopper kinda kills it though, so I need to paint that.
Titan with a 3 barrel shotgun speedloader thing. Takes like 15 or so pumps to fill it, considering I plugged up all the other tubes and valves leading to the other useless crap that comes in a titan.
Singled longshot. Extremely sloppy job. Performs suboptimally. Very few redeeming qualities. Even the PVC stock sucks.
RSCB'd reactor. Hits high 30's to mid forties depending how fast it is pushed. I know it sucks, but it is a big improvement over shooting balls ten feet.

First the money shot:
Here is internal details. The screw tabs on the plunger tube broke off when a youngin' dry-fired it. So I super glued some acrylic pieces in place, and readjusted the placement of the plunger tube (read: draw extension.)
There are three pieces of acrylic. The top piece is placed so that it rest against the tactical rail catch-nub box.
The two bottom pieces are cut to form around the screw ports. The lower piece fits over the original screw mount for the plunger tube, and the upper pieces sits on top, with a hole drilled for the screw. The lower piece also has a cut-out for the screw port closer to the front of the gun. Both pieces are super glued to the plunger tube and each other.
(This picture has the upper and lower pieces swapped, to show the detail of the lower piece.
Now, while the plunger tube is farther forward, judging by the plunger rod, it looks like it sticks just as far out the back of the gun as without mods. However, it actually has more travel than that. I used rather thick foam for padding, but the plunger can be pushed farther into the shell.
When you fire the gun, the momentum carries the plunger forward into the foam quite a bit. Unfortunately, the spring isn't quite long enough to press the plunger against the foam, so when it's pushed forward it rattles some.

Maverick has since been removed and replaced with polycarbonate "mounting strips."
Ratchetfinder. Writeup is on NRev, but there are a million better ways it could have been done. Still, its been a solid secondary for a year.
Extremely nitefinder, inspired by Banshee. I'm actually re-doing this blaster now because of catch issues and short barrels on a 3k sucking.
Pistol Raider I did for someone that plays HvZ at my school.
Rogue scope with lever trigger.
Angel breech for streamlines contract for Ozymandias.
Shot blast with lever trigger and magstrike pump.

My Night Finders. First has a 3 inch CPVC barrel, the second is draw extended and the third has an internal CPVC coupler.
Painted Barricade with matching stock and light.

I mostly finished the cosmetics on my singled longshot. True men use tape:
I also modded my LNL with a Popatachi and Taerkitty hybrid breech. This is now my main sidearm:
I also made my BBB a BAMF. I can swap out inline clips now:
Also, apparently some Magstrike parts are compatible with the Powerclip. I needed to replace my pump because although the other was reinforced, for some reason it gave off some gooey metal shit that reminded me of mercury. It was probably from the silicone grease that I was using.
I also minimized the barrel on my Stampede, and I did a few other mods to it..
And...I Pack-A-Punched my Barrel Break. I couldn't help it.

I know, I know..........but I couldn't resist.........
This setup is SURE to brake the plunger rod eventually!

Here's my take on the Max Shot:
MONEY SHOT YO:
Let's take a peek inside.
The plunger is a 32mm pressure-PVC with an ID of 38mm (roughly 1.5"). The original plunger tube just helps it to keep the new plunger tube centred.
A 32mm bathplug in skirt-seal setup helps to create an airtight seal, allowing vacuum loading.
A duel 16mm UPVC reducer nested inside a 20mm UPVC coupler provides modular setups. This would be the equivalent of being able to use any setups with both CPVC and 1/2" PVC Sch 40.
If you lube the thing up right with a proper dart/barrel, singled ranges can go over 100' flat with streamline sized stefans and a single BT LS V2 spring. Enjoy.

My incline-clipped Shot Gun is currently a work-in-progress.
That turret? It's packing 20mm UPVC incline clips with 16mm carbon fibre tubing barrels and 17/32" brass inserts to keep the darts tight upon firing (already tested on my modular Hand Cannon).
Cracking it open will expose a homemade plunger tube setup featuring a 32mm pressure-PVC plunger tube with a 3mm-thick neoprene washer seal.
Credit goes to -Aj- for the 32mm bathplug seal design he made.

Recon stock piece, 9V battery mod, E-taped flywheels for streamline compatibility.
No Raider's were harmed in the making of this product.
EFF THAT RAIDER DRUM TIME!
Felt so awesome I had to flip you guys off. Or my hand cramped from working on it so long.
