You don't put any on the back. You put one in the middle that matches the ID of the skirt seal (7/8") so it stays put, and you put one on the front that's just large enough (1 1/4") to hold the skirt on.

My first thought is that it looks like one of those more "realistic" firearm-inspired blasters of the sort you might see at like Cabela's. Is there any manufacturer or copyright information printed or molded on the shell anywhere?

Just saw your post. Awesome! For some reason the images don't load for me but I think I can make sense of it.

Click "Image Archive" at the top right. They were a victim of the imageshack apocalypse a few years ago, but survive in that archive.


In Topic: Idea for a plunger design

Huh. That's clever. I think you may run into some issues with minimum bend radius on the plunger tube. Sealing on a surface that curves in more than one dimension might also be more tricky than just a cylinder. My gut is that something with more give than an o-ring might work better. Perhaps a skirt seal or a washer seal like a SNAP, although I'm just spitballing here. Interested to see where you go with it.

The only mod writeup I've ever seen for that blaster is the one I did. I'm not sure it's a great mod, but it exists.

 

To answer your questions, it's a manual plunger blaster, sometimes called  "push-pull" blaster, for obvious reasons. Lately I've seen this style of blaster called HAMPs, after Kane's blaster of that name. I'm not sure about extending the inline clips. I've never seen it done.
