- The mod is solid but I have to say I have seen like eight topics on backpressure works and your's is the first to make any sense to me and it makes TOTAL sense. So thank you for the stellar crude drawing.

- I have to second pretty much all of this. I have two hornets just sitting around because I never quite got how they work.

Now you know.
And knowing is half the battle ;)

Also a Triumph the Dog puppet sounds like a great idea, assuming the wearer plays the character right.

Dont know why, but I thought of Mr. Hat when this topic was brought up...

Was there any paticular reason you only used 3 tanks?

That was all I could really fit on the PVC without destroying the aesthetics. My original plan was to use all 6 all the way around the PVC, but that simply wasnt going to work as they barrels would have been blocked by my hand at several places.

1) For me, yes. But it's all in getting the sizing right. What's comfy for me might be too tight for someone else.
2) It depends on how you rig the trigger. My trigger is tethered at both ends (one end by the tubing, the other by the LED wires), so I cant let the trigger hang so as to grip a second gun. That said, I can prime a gun in my right hand just fine.

NOTE: these air guns seem to have an air leak defect. I tried two of them, and they both leaked in the same area, right out of the hex nut where the seal is held. I was able to fix both of them by using JB Weld and sealing around the nut.

Anyway, the final step is the hardest. Space out your Hornet barrels and mark where you want them. Drill holes to hold the tanks down with zip ties. Make sure the tubing is flexible enough to properly fit them together.

Now for LEDs!

And there you have it. A semi-home-made wrist blaster that can get ~70 with 3 darts on ~6 pumps. And it looks freaking awesome.




The only regret I have on mine is not straightening the tubing. I thought I was going to have 5 barrels, so I didn’t know that last tank WAS the last tank, thus the tubing doesn’t “end” properly and curves upwards to reach the tee. Otherwise, proof of concept and I’m overall really happy with this. :)

So the entire orange barrel and gray faceplate can be just pulled off? Sweet! Would you recommend the boiling water trick to dissolve the glue, or is that a bad idea in this case?

Most of it is welded.
The tank does screw on, mine was just stuck apparently. :blush:

From what I've seen (and read from the other topic), I should be able to cut it vertically alone the line of the back of the trigger. I'm still not that close to doing this integration, but I'll certainly mention how this it works out.

Thanks again!.
