Longshot Clip And Breech
Posted 18 June 2007 - 11:26 AM
So my plan is to put a PVC pipe that's the diameter of the dart tag dart head so it's replacing about a half inch of the back barrel in the breech. The idea is to pick up the dart, with enough room for the head, and then have the back barrel fit around the front one (the opposite of how it is now). I've checked, and there's plenty of room in the front barrel for the head, but if I just cut the back barrel, there would be a hole in the barrel that air could leak out.
The only problem is actually getting the darts. I have like, 10 stripped screws in my longshot at the moment, so it will take some doing to be able to open it up to look first hand, and I need to see how the breech system works with the clip. Could anyone who has a longshot open check if the PVC would run in the the clip, or not grab the dart at all? Has anyone attempted this, or can come up with a different approach to it?

Just go with a different gun. A nightfinder will perform just as well as a longshot but with much simpler modifications. And it can shoot any kind of dart you can cram into the barrel.

If you want a more reliable way to lad taggers, just put a dart in the front of the barrel and let it slide down. After it slides to the bottom, cock the gun back and when you push the handle forward make sure the bolt is covering the foam part of the dart. It doesn't hurt the ROF too bad and is the my favorite way to load darts that I picked up on the ground during a war. To do this I'm assuming you already removed the air restricters and have an empty clip.

Jurassic, do you mean replacing the barrel completely, or just the bolt?
