i'm going to answer your questions here. And debunk a few of your points. i am in no way being arrogant here. i am just trying to back up what i have just posted.So what's the point?
i was challenged. this is my response to that challenge.Like Forsaken, I have some pretty powerful Nerf blasters. I bet if I pumped my SM 5000 (shortened air line) eight to ten times, I could probably break 300'; ANGLED. Quite impractical for any kind of Nerf combat, but still I could prove a point. But then I wouldn't have a SM 5000 for long. That's why I only pump it twice (to get 80' ranges).
a friend of mine has a SM 5000 he wanted me to repair. he never pumps it more than 5 times and never gets more than about 110. it is an amazing gun. no doubt. one of my favorites. Wish i had one myself.35 pumps you say?
Yup. 35 pumpsDid you do this whole shebang just to prove something? Because that BuzzBee isn't going to last long if you keep doing that. Want to be king of the hill?
I know it's not going to last long. but it's a cheap gun for so much power. so I show no remorse in burning a few out entirely.Let's see that dart you made that's so special, since you say it's not a "normal Stefan".
It's not a stephan at all. It's a Streamline dart from the Longshot CS-6 with 2 copper bb's in the head of it.I shot a dart at LEAST 600 feet (200 yards) into the ocean, off of my air-powered spud gun, but it was made of 1/2" SCH 40PVC pipe and e-tape, and wouldn't really qualify as a "Nerf" dart. Or even a "Nerf" blaster.
I guess it wouldnt. but 600' is amazing regardless. i must applaud you on that.I was about to make a comment about parking space width, but Forsaken, I just went outside to measure a parking space (I have a 40 space parking lot on property) and the ones over here measure 9 feet wide. Yep, wide. So Echo may not be too far off.
Thank you Pineapple. I appreciate the help there I hate to say this, dude, but I still have a hard time believing it. The video is scratchy and you could very well have planted one out there, but I'll slide it because you went through so much trouble trying to prove yourself.
I dont blame you for thinking this. but that is the highest quality i could do. my camera is a little handheld digicam with a video option. It's the best i can do. Yes i could have planted one out there. and i have no way of proving that i didnt. but you could say that about any outdoor range test video. Not making a claim, just pointing it out.Quite arrogantly, I may add. And arrogance is something that's not very welcome here.
I'm sorry if i came off that way. but i, myself wasnt even expecting 400. i was expecting something close to 290. so i guess half of that was personal excitement. I apologize wholeheartedly.
Sheesh. The barrel blowing off says to me that you could actually get more distance with a longer, fixed barrel...there's extra power which is acting on the barrel instead of the dart. Or, it's acting like a safety...by the barrel blowing off, it vents out extra pressure and keeps your gun from exploding.
Impressive. Impractical and dangerous, but impressive.
I guess you could call it that. in fact, that makes sense. thank you for pointing that out Carbon. I'll keep that in mind for any other barrels i may make.
