In Topic: Need spring for homemade project

06 November 2013 - 03:52 PM

Well my mind reading was slightly off... ;) Ever think about using latex tubing? there is almost no limit to draw/power and is supposedly supa smooth.

Well the project was initially supposed to be bow powered, and it was... until the bow arms broke :\ so I decided to just use a spring instead to avoid any further breakage. Thus this post was born.

It is the most widely used plunger rod for the most part. (and I can read your mind) Which one are you getting? The problem you will have with the k44 is it will most likely mess with your trigger nail (considering the fact that you are making a snap) and the k27 may not be able to slide around cpvc, but you could probably do enough extensive sanding for it to work great.

Actually there is no trigger so no problems there. I am building probably the simplest homemade ever, and its a simple pull back and let go system.

This spring may just fit your bill, its a k44 and is 36" long with a .75 id. SPRING Or you could go with a k27 which has a .625 id and would most likely not fit around cpvc well.

Wow that looks perfect for what I'm doing, how did you know I was fitting it around cpvc? :lol: Thank you.

In Topic: New Buzz Bee Sidewinder

02 November 2013 - 06:27 PM

Some guy had one at my uni's HvZ game, he let me pop a few darts off from it.

It's basically a Raider. I think an at3k pump should fit in the pump action, but if not you can always elongate the slots for the pump handle and create a larger draw.

Actually I was thinking of just using the pump inside the sidewinder along with a check valve and an OPRV set to what the at3k normally holds. Well I geuss now I just go get one and fiddle with it. :rolleyes:

In Topic: Will Custom Darts Work in Stock Barrels?

04 July 2013 - 02:29 PM

In some experiments I've conducted in trying to find a better than stock dart, I've found that if you cut a stock elite dart right where the stem from the tip ends in the darts shaft, then take the little orange dome off of the tip and clean up the edges, then put the now semi-flat tip onto the other end of the elite dart, that it performs quite a bit better than stock elite darts. (man that was a run-on sentence.)The only issue I've had with that method is fastening the tips back on. Hot glue melted the foam, and epoxy didn't quite hold it. I think maybe silicon might work. So thats my method, feel free to adapt and/or alter it any way you want to suit your needs. Just thought it'd be useful to you seeing as how you want to keep the use of stock magazines and barrels.
