As for the barrel being essentially taped on to the front of the blaster, why not drill a 5/8" hole under the tee, run a piece of cpvc through the bottom side, and cap it off underneath? Just a thought.

I had a similar dilemma once upon a time. I sorta improved, but mostly based it off of the PACbow. I followed the bow arms section with a few modifications. My link I made the actual bow arms about 4' long and a single piece of 3/4" cpvc, unlike the two separate pieces he used. For the plunger tube, it's nothing more than 1' of 1-1/4" pvc. At the back of that, I screwed in a 3/4" pvc endcap with a 5/8" hole drilled so the plunger rod is centered. The plunger rod and plunger headis pretty much identical to that of a Snapbow (with the exception of a catchface on the plunger head). Once you have all that done, drill a 3/16" hole in the end of the plunger rod, and both ends of the bow arms. Feed some 3/16" polyester cord through everything and enjoy.

Anyways, sorry about the long rant, but if you read through it carefully and read through a few other bow writeups, it should make sense. If you have any questions, pm me and I'll help you through it. Be warned, I won't spoon feed you through every step.

Great work. Looks really solid. Also, I don't understand the hype over crossbow shells. They kinda suck, not sure why the first thing that comes to mind when they see this is zomg crossbow. Anyways, keep up the work. You could make some really interesting stuff with this shit.

It's 1.5" thinwall, which I can't get anywhere else. I prefer Home Depot's pvc to lowes', but Home Depot is pretty far. Lowes has dirty pvc occasionally, but it does the job.
