With the help of jin kazama, a while ago I made this beast:

Heres a short summary. :It's not glorious and it's not very pretty but it is a very simple and effective homemade. It's basically a Bow n' Arrow that shoots micros. It gets nearly exact range compared to a BnA with a sawed off tip with all ammo. Obviously because it's CPVC it uses stefans more effectivlely.
The way to make it is simply cut a piece of CPVC to the desired length. (a longer barrel will get more range, this is the reason for the coupler on the end of the barrel) To make the air actually power the darts out of the barrel get a pole of some kind, that is about 1/3 to 1/2 the length of the barrel. Put enough electric tape around it to make it mostly airtight as you are letting go of the pole, or plunger as we will call it. Then simply take 2 bungee cords, tape them to the plunger, and then tape them to the barrel. Make sure the bungees aren't too loose or the gun will not work properly. Here are a couple of pics of the plunger.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

We never really tested it. Thats the funny thing. Um, I would say as a guestimate when we were screwing around with it I'd say around 20 feet. Its not very accurate either but hay. MY first homemade...with the help of Jin. Well, I could get more accurate range once we get onseason for nerf.
