What about mighty putty?

I've seen the stuff finally in stores now, and it's even at my local Fry's Electronics impulse buy area.

I've got my doubts, but I'd rather have solid results than idle speculation.

In Topic: Rubberband O-ring

How about you exeriment and try it yourself instead of ask us? Your specific application for a rubber-band plunger may be different than what you see on here. Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

There's a concept known as reinventing the wheel. If there's already been work done, why bother doing it again?

In Topic: Mg42 Longshot Help

Whilst reading the responses to the topic, I came up with an idea. You take two different sizes of PVC and a torsion spring. You would place the spring inside of the smaller diameter PVC, then, attach one of the spring "arms" to a solid base inside the PVC. Next, attach the other "arm" to a dart friendly loader, (basically something that pushes the darts along in the clip without them jamming) and place the loader arm in the space inbetween the two sizes of PVC. Here is a diagram...

The darts are terribly out of proportion, but you get the general idea. Also, the spring would have to be weak enough to not squish the darts, yet strong enough to push them ALL the way up to the breech. It's a conceivable idea, I might actually try it if I can find a spring.

what about instead of feeding at a right angle where it'd have to make the journey around the bend, why not just straight up?

I know you lose the general point of making it MG42ish, but once you've got a working drum mag, figuring out the corner loading problem would be the last step.

Personally, I kind of want an AK47 style banana clip for my LS and recon.

In Topic: Guide To Barrel Material

New barrel material? It's not GRAET but it's better than stock, and it's removable.

I was cleaning my closet, and a tagger managed to wedge it self into the bottom of a CDR spindle, so I broke it off, cleaned the end, opened up the top end and plugged it into the barrel of my disk shot pistol, and I haven't distance tested it, but it is travelling out of the barrel faster. I'm pretty sure we're not going to see huge improvements but for a cheap, quick solution for really cheap...

Why not a sticky or a subforum for these threads? You can't stop them but you can quarantine them.
