Hey, I bought two of these from a goodwill and nested 1/2" pvc inside 3/4" thinwall pvc and nested that in the front blue part and can consistently get 60 ft. with mega darts (stock ones not stefans) with only pumping 20 to 30 times. I think you need to check something. My 1/2 pvc barrel is about 7 " long.

Good Job dizzyduck,

I just replaced the barrels on my at1k also and am getting almost 40ft out of mine using stock darts, so if I can get more that is awesome. I have also thought this gun had potential but I tried to mod one a couple of years ago and did not get good results. I really what you did to the cocking mechanism in the back with the handle. What kind of glue did you use? Is it just hot glue?

I have a question; being misinformed about what type of lubricant to use, I used the liquid wrench heavy duty silicone lubricant, the yellow can, and two of my guns' plunger heads have now broken because the o-rings became swollen. My question is there anyway to shrink back the o-rings so they are not tight in the plungers? This is the reason my plunger heads broke. I fixed them, but I cannot fire the guns ( a longshot and a knock-off mini ttg) because the o-rings are still enlarged. Should I soak them in soap and water? Just water? Air them out? Any help would be awesome. I could also just get new o-rings, which I have spares of anyway.

Edit: yeah Zorn, I searched around a little bit more after I posted and Captainslug went back in time and told me what to do. My main thing was I did not know if the o-rings swelling was reversible, but now I know it is not so I will just use new o-rings, which is the easiest solution of them all. I also plan on picking up new lubricant tomorrow.

So Just for the record, Liquid Wrench heavy duty silicone lubricant swelled my old o-rings and I would not suggest using it for older guns that have dry o-rings.

Nice Job on all of the weapons!! Your keyblade is huge though, unless you are actually 4'2", which would make it normal size, but all the rest of the weapons look nice and squishy. What 3 types of foam do you use? When I make my weapons (refer to my thread: my homemade swords ) I use camping foam, craft foam, open-cell foam, and sometimes fbr if it calls for it.

Hey, sorry about that. I see what you are saying now. Yeah, my longsword write up replaced my katana write up. I will fix that later on tonight. But just for reference, there did in fact used to be a katana write up.

All of the photos are now fixed in the katana write up. I had saved all of the longsword photos as numbers and I did the same thing for the katana photos, so they just replaced them. I also added some more weapon photos in the photo gallery and will add more photos to the sparring photos. Thank you for point this out, that would have been confusing otherwise.
