Have you found the new version awkward to prime with a hopper and barrel attached, because the whole barrel assembly moves when you prime it?

Well the plunger rod must be the length of the spring and the distance between the catch and the plunger head on a snap like the one you've built, while with a slotted plunger rod it just has to be the length of the spring, so if you built the blaster so the plunger rod touched the back of tee when primed, your style would have to be slightly longer.

I believe he said 6'' of draw.

I agree that this is a nice design, but the fault of this kind of pump action snap is that they will always be longer than the shortest slotted plunger rod pumpSNAPs with the same amount of draw, and the plunger rod will also be heavier, if only slightly. However, this is still a very nice blaster.

This is a great writeup. Unfortunately, I have 1500 #8 washers left from the that I bought about half a year ago before I knew to buy #6's, and if I try to melt a hole for the #8's to sit in the foam is too thin, so I'm stuck with 1500 more bad slugs or 1500 useless washers.
