Search Is A Pain

02 September 2009 - 04:14 PM

The four letter limit really gets on my nerves. I've read plenty of posts where admins tell noobs to use the search function. Now on this website abbreviations are used very often and when I don't recognize a certain abbreviation i would like to search it but many times it's four or less letters. Example: the other day I wanted to find a material list and write-up of a basic SNAP but alas it's not over five letters and I am clueless on what to add to the search so I just gave up. All in all we are told to use the search function instead of posting questions but many times the annoying unknown abbreviations are too short and nobody gets what they want. I would like to know what the purpose of it is and if it could be changed to help noobs like me and many others who get penalized for the unknown. Is it part of the website program or just a flood control.

All Cpcv Breech

03 August 2009 - 12:04 PM

With all my lurking on nerf haven i have seen plenty of breeches. The breeches consisted of cpvc and brass or cpvc and ptg but all have to work with is cpvc so i put something together with what i had.
All i had to work with was 1/2 inch cpvc and 3/4 inch cpvc so i did my best and this is what i ended up with.


Sorry about the tape. The cream color was getting to me. first i cut the breech opening into the 3/4 cpvc like most breeches. Then i took a 2 1/2 inch piece of 1/2 inch cpvc and inserted a little bit past the breech opening


then i took my actual barrel piece and because 1/2 doesn't fit tightly into 3/4 i applied e tape and a layer of masking tape to make it fit tight into the 3/4 in two places but it is tighter where it meets the smaller piece of cpvc that goes into the coupler (the 2 1/2 piece i mentioned earlier)
I added another piece of 3/4 cpvc at the end of the barrel as a handle. i made this without any measurements just lining up parts and making marks with a sharpie. this was originally a experiment and i wasn't expecting good ranges but it got 100' with an unpluged lanard blast bazooka, or at least i think that is what it is called. I got the same ranges as i do with a solid piece of cpvc barrel and just as accurate. my darts are bad so the range can't be trusted all that well but it is good for a breech that was made without any real planning or measurement.
This is my first post so go easy on me.
