Longshot Top Loading Breech
Posted 09 August 2007 - 03:05 PM
I put some 3\4" ID PVC beneath the bolt, now it looks like this with the breech open.
Breech open with a shot in breech.
It works amazingly, and is very, very simple. If you hate the guts of your Longshot, I would suggest doing this.
Expect a huge drum mag coming out of the top soon.

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.

The mag has two prongs that come out of the top, so I would have to push the dart into it, unless I cut the tops of them off. But I like it this way better, the mags are one reason for my hate of this gun.
The mags are without a doubt the BEST part of the gun. The unrivaled ROF coupled with fool proof reloding is what makes the longshot good. With out the mags, its a subpar crossbow.

This was going to be my next project... but with brass... And it is going to have a bolt-action-type handle thingy on it.
But yes I hate the mags as well, as mine wont function worth a shit, way to go Turtle!
OMG! This would be an awesome application for my cassette magazine, because its so goddamn easy to lock in. Expect a write up as soon as the hobby shop has brass in the wright size. (<--Haha see? It was a pun!... Fine I'll stop )

Here is the cover:
It looks really cool when it goes into the gun shell:
Then I put a clip on top, but even then I could see one huge problem:
Here it is with the cheat:
Here is the problem:
Since there is such a huge gap in between the clip and the breech, several darts will fall in, ometimes even flipping in the long fall.
This is rather problematic when you push the bolt forward.
So, I've been racking my brains all morning trying to come up with something that will solve this problem. None of my ideas went anywhere, so I'm asking all you intelligent people to see if you have any. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

If above made no sense at all, then look at the pic below and imagine.
