Magazine Springs/ New Longshot Magazine

23 February 2010 - 03:06 PM

Good afternoon Nerfhaven. I need some help with my new longshot. I am building a not completely new style of magazine for it. It will be made completely out of PVC and polycarbonate. The inside of the clip will be at its longest part 1 3/4 inches. Here is a template of what it will look like.

The spring i am looking for is very close to the Ls magazine spring.

I am trying to decide to make it gravity loading or bottom spring fed. I am looking for a place to buy these springs or a way to make them. Also if this is the wrong forum i am sorry.

Thanks,

Longshot Paintjob Handy Tool

24 January 2010 - 02:32 AM

I'm pretty sure this is the right forum because technically this is a modification of the look of the gun.
I just recently got done with a angel breached Longshot with a triple clip. i has been a couple of months since i started and i am excited to paint it. Although i am torn on how to paint it. i have made a template of my gun for experimenting with paint schemes.

Nite Finder Dual External Sprigs

14 November 2009 - 01:16 PM

This gun was seriously lacking in performance in my opinion, so i supped it up just a bit.
on a scale from one to ten on difficulty this is like a point five in my opinion.

i started off by taking the gun apart and sanding down that little piece under the plunger handle.

then you shave the inside screw holes down some so the tension spring will fit in place when the the screws are screwed on.
now place a screw and a lock nut on the other end of the two springs.

To reinforce the plunger you put a washer at the end of the plunger head.


finished gun should look like this:

I don't know whats up with the sound in the video.
Its kinda crappy quality cause i filmed it on my cell phone because I lost my camera.

Help With A Unique Bbb Mod

17 October 2009 - 11:15 PM

This is my very first bbb i have ever done. I moved through it very quickly, i did this mod on the internals, until i started into the process of trying to figure out how to make it fire micros and stefans. I looked at a lot of the bbb mods in the directory and didn't find a barrel style that i liked to much. So i decided to resurrect an old firefly of mine that the front barrels were removed from leaving a hollow cavity inside the revolving barrel.

(i traded my neighbor a wooden pallet for it)
I then carved the fire fly down to fit on the bbb. Which looks like this.

and the internals

Then i took the plastic barrels i had cut off and made them into dart holders in the back of the gun, and shaped the rest out of epoxy putty.

And now I'm stuck, i can't figure out how to attach the brass (9/16) into the firefly and make it have a tight seal with the bbb.

Do i wrap the barrels with e-tape at the ends to seal it then put some plastic repair epoxy or some kind of adhesive? than put a piece of rubber or something like that between the bbb and the front of the orange piece on the bbb to seal it?

got any suggestions? :huh:

I just got done with what i thought was my greatest gun ever, the bolt action triple nightfinder with a pvc stock.

Then wen i went to fire it it acted like a stock longshot. (it sucked monkies if i dare say.) the spring is one i got from a local hardware store and i thought it would be good. What spring should i use? I thought about a +bow spring, would that work?

p.s. its not fully painted yet, its just the texture on it now.
