In Topic: Your First Snap

21 June 2016 - 12:48 AM

Nice thread! Personally, after making many snaps with the listed method of making snap triggers, I found that putting the epoxy putty into the clothespin first, then putting a nail through the the epoxy putty and having the head of the nail sit on top of the epoxy putty worked best for me. This way, the nail is held straight and in place by the epoxy putty. When I had the nail seated at the bottom of the clothespin, the lack of support caused the nail to start to wiggle after extended periods of time. Having the extra support from the putty really helps with the stability of the nail.

 

EDIT: Forgot to add, I put the nail through the second bump in the clothespin, rather than the foremost one. I sink it slightly into the epoxy putty so that it is flush with the rest, and then I screw the L bracket over the nail head to ensure it doesn't come out.

NerfOMania made a fantastic guide on modifying panthers, so I would check it out on youtube here:
I think the tank can take 14-15 pumps(?). For a breech I would probably do 8-10 inches of 9/16ths brass nested in 19/32nds brass nested in 1/2 inch PVC for elite darts. I do know that panthers take CPVC well, so maybe try that. But make sure to experiment with barrel length and material to make sure what is best for your blaster.

You'll be missed, but have a good vacation. Hopefully you can make it out to a war up here some other time.

Thanks! Hope you guys have a great war. I will definitely see if I can make another war sometime.

As of right now, I am planning to attend and possibly bring some people with me.

Just a ponderance... Does the vigilon count as a "speedloader pistol"?

Technically, a speedloader pistol refers to a homemade pistol equipped with a speedloader. I'm not sure what games will be played, but a vigilon might work I guess.
I won't be able to make it out this year guys. I will be on vacation in Hawaii with my family on the 27th. Hope you guys have a good war!

Wow, this has to be the most original entry so far! Great job!

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not….
This was a pretty good writeup, but I would try to get better pictures if possible. Other than that, the instructions were relatively clear, so good job.
