#364593 Front-Primed 1995 Kenner Crossbow

Posted by Silly on 03 August 2020 - 09:02 PM

I am actually separately working on (brainstorming right now) a pump action 95 Crossbow, but it won't be this front-tube design. It will be a standard back-prime with priming bars internal (external if I can't make them fit) that go to a loop around the priming bar at the back. Still brainstorming though.

This is a project I started concept art for in 2019, but never actually started work on until May of this year.


This blaster works via a front-primed plunger tube & plunger, with a bent barrel and sealed end that redirects air to shoot out of the stock 1995 Crossbow's barrel area. I used a widened Kronos catch with a 2nd catch spring, and a lever/linkage bar system to activate the catch. The linkage bar goes back to a polycarb trigger.


This blaster is getting ~150 fps out of an 8 inch CPVC barrel with 2/3 of a [k25].


If (when) I do this mod again, I will most likely use a Rainbow catch to use a [k26], perhaps a wider plunger tube, and probably integrate a brass breech onto the top (maybe with a 3d printed cover/casing/spacer?) instead of just a 1/2in PVC/CPVC coupler.

#358245 95 Crossbow Clip Fed?

Posted by Silly on 27 February 2017 - 09:49 AM

{Before note: Typing this out on an iPad so please forgive any mistakes}


I have been studying CaptainSlug's Caliburn homemade, how nerf clip fed blasters work, and how we could make a clip fed nerf crossbow.
Several people will say "we dont need this" and "this isnt an improvement", and they may be right. However heres what I put to them: Imagine a 35 round drum in a 95 crossbow. I dont know about you, but I think that would be at the least cool, if not badass.

There is certainly more then a few problems with getting a clip onto this icon, so lets list them step by step.

1. priming and dart stop: The crossbow and all of the homemade internals ive seen are pull back and fire, not pull back, push fowards, then fire like current mag/clip fed nerf blasters. (Original Picture credit to Slug)
This is what I propose:


2. structural support: I was thinking we could use the stock barrel's leftover "scope" as structural support by sticking a long rod (heh) into it from the magazine mech, overnthe top of the blaster (as shown above by that big pink stick on the top of the blaster)

3. Acessing the mechanism to make repairs: there is no doubt that this idea would need an occasional fix. We could use screws if we wanted, or maybe we could use one screw then the whole thing comes off the crossbow. Advice needed on this.

4. Materials and production via a guide: I was thinking delrin, aluminum, or ploycarb for the case of the inner mechanism. However I dont have experience in deciding materials, so advice needed here too.

This whole project is in the design phase, not in the prototype phase yet. So any advice/input/help is thanked and will be looked into.

Also, less spaces in your post please. Less space is a lot better for the eyes.

#356854 Best blaster to Mod (fully auto) with PLENTY of space?

Posted by Silly on 24 November 2016 - 06:55 AM


I would use rapidstrike for compact and power, hyperfire for lobbing a bucket of darts, and brute for idk because I don't have one.
