I'm not exactly sure about this, but wouldn't cutting the end of your barrel like that on the AT2K make your darts fly down because of uneven pressure?

Wouldn't it make them fly upwards? Since the angle cuts off air on top of the dart, there is more pressure below it, which would push it up, eh?

Sorry for the double post, but no one would look here if I didn't.

Here, my friends, is my B3 Carbine. It's a BBB (obviously) with 15 pounds of spring tension inside it. As of right now it has a cpvc barrel, but I'm going to get a 1/2 pvc coupler and nest some brass in some pvc for the end result. The barrel will also be painted black with exception to the end bit of it. It gets ranges on average of 80 feet, with a maximum of 90 feet, and is accurate up to 50 feet.

EDIT: My pictures won't work, I'll try again tomorrow.

Yay! I can post pictures now!

Here's my newly Modded, painted maverick. It used to be a pile of spare parts that were left over from dead mavericks, until I realized I had enough parts to build it. It gets aboout 40' range Max, but I only use it for indoor wars anyway.

Posted Image

And the reason why I had so many spare parts:

Posted Image

I like Mavericks, and I've modified a shitload of them. :blink:

Here's my One-pump 3k, named so because it pumps to full in one pump, getting about 70' range. I'm going to do a write up on it after I finish this post.

Posted Image

Here's another creation born from spare parts, My NF Blowgun

Posted Image

Posted Image

I replaced the trigger with a bent paperclip, just to keep the laser. The NF shell makes the blowgun very comfortable.
Ranges - Upwards of 80' - 100', bacause Blowguns own.

Here's my Longshot, with the Front gun integration mod. Both guns fire with the same trigger, the Longshot gets 80'-90', and the Lower gun gets 55', because I changed the spring to a crossfire spring.

And that's it for now.

Well, I had some time over the week. I reworked my Longshot and finished my NiteFinder. (All ranges posted and range estimates posted are very nearly flat.)

First, the Longshot.

Posted Image

Originally, I tossed in a MaxShot spring as a replacement and took out the AR and pole. Now, I put in a BBB spring with the MaxShot spring, and put a small spring from the MaxShot in as the new catch spring. I must admit, I'm really not the most muscular person, but this thing is really difficult to cock; I can only do it with two hand on the bolt bracing it against my chest. It shoots incredibly far now. No real ranges yet, but eventually. I also put in another o-ring for a better seal.

Posted Image

The other thing I did was cut up one of my two scopes and glue it on the side. I got a Tech Target Scout, seen in the picture above, and replaced the stupid stock spring with a cut down spring out of the RF20. I haven't drilled the restrictors yet, but it hits 40ish feet with deadly aim.

This gun is really nice, overall. It's good to have an overly-powerful clip-fed spring rifle with an extra shot handy on the side.

This is my NiteFinder.

Posted Image

This thing is CRAZY. As you can see, I looped a bungee around it a bunch. The first-gen spring in there is powerful enough, but these things add a ton of range and velocity. I put a five inch 17/32 brass barrel in. I used a ton of glue to combat the smashing done by the bungeed plunger. It also helps the very near-100% seal in the gun; I wrapped the plunger head in electrical tape and put the o-ring outside, sealed up all holes at the barrel, and was left with a gun that sucks darts all the way down the fairly tight barrel. It shoots like a beast; it gets at least 60.

Eventually, this NF will be mounted on the other side of the Longshot, so I can have two pistols in reserve for when my four LS clips run out of ammo, or when multiple people are rushing me and I don't have time to re-cock the Longshot.

Basic AR removal, and I stuck the top of the bolt sled to the jam door so it opens everytime I pull the bolt back; like a real rifle.

My new Crossbow.

Very intimidating. This thing is a beast. I did a normal barrel relocation and added 12" of PETG nested in PVC. OMC's PETG to be exact. It works awesome for nesting inside PVC. I added a new spring to the existing one. It is pretty loud when shot. After adding a new spring I reinforced the hell out of it. I think it will withstand the added force. I might paint the barrel, but right now, I am glad I got the thing finished.

Alright I tested the official ranges.

128'
125'
132'
136'
130'
131'
126'
135'

Average: 130'

That was with a crosswind of about 5 mph and no dart skip (Shot across grass in the snow.)

I also added a small bungee. This is probably my new favorite spring gun.

That xbow is nice, but it is pain to ramrod that thing after every shot.

130'? Thats a ton of range! I think that's the most range out of an xbow yet!

It is. I have a coupler system on there but a ramrod is faster usually. I can also vacuum load the darts.

After an added spring and bungees it's pretty easy to get. Just make sure you reinforce the hell out of it. Or you have a broken $60 gun, and that sucks.

Yeah, in the last year or so, 130' has become the typical top end average of the xbow's ragnes, if you mod it right.

Yeah I don't think I can squeeze anymore range out of it without it breaking. I haven't messed with the seal between the plunger head and the plunger tube but I'm sure the most I could get by improving the seal is about 5'.

When adding new springs reinforcement is really required, butI do not understand why it would be when adding bands. I like your panitjob and your ranges are good but not the best ever. Mine gets the same as that and it has a strong bungee, 12" CPVC barrel, Plungerhead taped in E-tape and the stock spring.

I've cranked out 5 new mods in the past 2 weeks, so I thought I'd share them with all of you.

Here is my new BBB. I added an extremely strong spring (to replace the spring my longshot stole from it) and I added 4 ammo holders. It's coupler modded, it has a side grip, and it has a rail from a cross fire for attaching other guns to the bottom. It gets 70-80'

Posted Image

Here's my Uber-NF. I added a stronger spring, a new O-ring, and 9 AMMO HOLDERS. By coincidence, the paint gave the barrel a better seal with darts, and that also increased the range. It has 3 ammo holders it the front (half of a 3k turret), 2 ammo holders on each side, and 2 more where the batteries were. It gets 50-65'

Posted Image
Posted Image

Here's my 'Crossfire Cannon'. It's a regular crossfire that looks like a little glock and has 2 springs (a CF spring paired with a Mav spring). It's the most powerful gun in my arsenal for it's size, and it tends to get underestimated often. It gets 50-65' range.

Posted Image

Here's my new maverick. I already posted it, but I've modified it alot since then. I found out that adding an AT3K air restrictor spring in the front of the turret works even better than just a standard Mav AR spring, and I modded the turret some more, so it works much better. I used it to own my brother and my cousin last weekend, and it performed well. (they both had s.nipers)

Posted Image

And here's my new Longshot. I added a spring and did all the standard mods to it, and I got it working great. I also painted it.

Posted Image

Both my longshots:

That's pretty nice z80. I've never seen that gun before.

I think getting rid of that vinyl tubing and connecting the airtank directly to the turret will increase ranges by a bit.

The problem is that it is too thin to fit the whole turret part. The vinyl is also only like two inches long, so it wont hurt that much.

Is that a piece of somewhat-large PVC connecting the back of the turret to the gun?

I'm so proud...lol.

Looks great!

Thanks. Its actually some 1.5" PVC (I beleive, I got it from my friend) Fits just around the turret after you grind down those little nubs on the side. It's very sturdy, but I took it off, so I could use different barrels, and because there was a seal problem.
