Since I haven't contributed ANYTHING. I thought I could start of now.

I've been thinking of some ideas of mag clamps for the Longshot mags. I got some mesurements: mag 1 thats in the gun : 3/4" . Distance to mag 2: 1 1/4". Mag 2: 3/4". These are from the part that are not in the gun(i.e. the exposed part of the mag when it's in the gun).

I was just wondering what kind of material would best suit(correct word?) to connect the mag side my side like plastic? Balsa wood? regular wood(mayby not the best choice cause its heavy.)?I'll try to make one later this week. Just no promises considering I have school and other things to worry about.

Sorry If this has been done before and I missed it for some reason. I've searched but I didn't get positive results. Other I deas are welcome and appreciated.

I know the Longshot inside and out and yet I have no idea what the hell you are talking about. Illuminate please.
If you are talking about connecting the magazines to eachother most people simply tape them end-to-end.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

It's something like that, but instead of end to end, more like side to side> I was pretty sure you would have created it CapstainSlug.

I never bothered and went straight to combining two 6-round magazines into one 12-14 round magazine.

There was, at one point, a suggestion to CS to make his proposed custom longshot mags have linking studs on them like SIG 500 magazines, but that went dow the drain to complexity and the arrival of replacement magazines.

For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.


There you go.
