And here's the 100th Caliburn I have printed.

They're wide because holes don't print to good tolerances, and I didn't want to have to hand-work every set of parts. The updated ram design based on o-rings replaces the long 4-40 screw with two 3/8" length screws and two nylon lock nuts. Neither of which interact with the inside of the ram, and therefore aren't a source of leaks. I've also widened the tolerances on 95% of the holes so that they no longer require any touch-up or drilling.

CHANGE NOTE 10/04/17:

  • Changed MAGWELL Inside profile to improve compatibility with JET Katana Mag adapter.

  • MAGWELL upper through-hole for long pin is now a step-down feature that retains that part so that it cannot escape while under spring load. Mag Release hole is one-sided and can be retained with a cut section of o-ring as a plug.

  • Widened through holes in a variety of parts to reduce the likelihood for drilling after print.

  • Narrowed JAM part to make it compatible with Artifact P-Mags.

  • Plunger and Ram components are now available for both O-Rings and Skirt seals. O-ring design has no leaks, but skirt seal option is still available for backwards compatibility purposes. O-Ring design also involves NO GLUE for assembly.

  • Increased the size of the spring pegs on TGUARD2 which were failing to print with cheaper filaments.

I will be releasing an updated file set within the next week that will include the o-ring based parts. I will also be using clear plunger tubes as the standard from here forward.

I would also like to point out that I just printed the 100th Caliburn part set. By December I'm likely to have made more of these than I ever made of Longshot foregrip kits.

 

Edit: And now there's a body kit or derivative Caliburn product coming out soon from Argus Modworks.

Things to note in the above image

 

1. I've switched from aluminum tubing to Nylon tubing for the spacers. This reduces the hardware cost for a single blaster by $10 and provides two color options (Black or White)

2. I've added a barrel shroud (not a shoulder thing that goes up) as a fourth spacer in the front assembly. These can be made out of 1/2 SDR 13.5 PVC Pipe or 3/4 PEX. Either cut to 10-3/4" length. This provides SIX color options (Black, White, Blue, Red, Orange, Lavender) and many others if vinyl dye or stain are used to recolor the PVC pipe. Price of this added part is below $1 and helps to improve the toy-like appearance of the blaster.

3. The SPREADER parts are going to be primarily orange from now on. As are the RAM. I am having both of these printed in ABS by an outside vender (temporarily).

4. Purple/Blue is a weird color combo that only one person has ever chosen.
