SCS (Suction Cup Slug)

20 November 2016 - 07:55 PM

Hate making slugs but love using them?
Can't get china darts to hop correctly?
An answer we've had for about a year but had been war tested by multiple people over a year to bring you to its current revision, the SCS. Easy to make, and have been made ON FIELD at wars, non metal (for those of you interested) this is a great alternative to the #6 slug that's been the staple of our community.

This guide will teach you how to make revision 3 of the SCS. 
Special note, you need wider bore barrels to hop these. Any barrel that's larger than 0.5 in internally should be able to hop this dart, however more powerful blasters like 4Bs, my rainbow or other airguns could use a smaller ID barrel such as .495 aluminum. CPVC is highly unrecommended unless it's true magic, PETG, .509 or .527 aluminum as barrel material.

 

So what do you need?
-USC dart(s) 
   (check the guide, use the search links for cheapest option)

-Something sharp and precise

   (an X-acto, razor blade, EDC knife it's really sharp)
-Quick sealing adhesive of your choice

   (gel style super glue highly recommended) 

-1/2 in felt pad 

   (Standard slug style felt pads)

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Alright so lets start. I'm using my EDC knife because I keep mine sharp.

Cut the tip off that USC. Make sure it's a clean cut, 

Attached File  15152529_1029810543808531_1594668132_o.jpg   56.11KB   75 downloads

Your cut really needs to be flat. On the left is a good cut, while the one on the right is unacceptable. 
This is why a razor or Xacto is highly recommended for this practice.

Cut it to whatever length you want it to be, however we cut it to the standard 1.25 in long slug length

Now you're done. 
Just kidding this only works in higher power blasters, keep reading.

Apply adhesive of choice on the tip of the USC in the center.
Brass not required, only used to demonstrate this this step.

Attached File  15152975_1029810567141862_807955860_o.jpg   71.22KB   71 downloads
Apply felt pad adhesive side down onto the tip of the dart, centered.
You can singe felt before application but it's not mandated, as I don't.

Attached File  15127480_1029810580475194_451994932_o.jpg   65.63KB   72 downloads

Well, now you're done. This is all you need to make the SCS. 
That wasn't hard was it? It only takes 30 seconds per dart if you get good at it.
With an assembly line, it's not hard to pump these out by the hundreds.

I'll make a rough playlist to avoid wasting time.  Make your requests if you want to play something and it's not listed.
