My New Homemade

The THUG (That Horribly Ugly Gun):

It's got a permanently mounted bike pump, feeding into a length of bicycle inner tube, which I hot-glued (and hose-clamped) over a hole in the pressure tank. The tank is 3/4 in. PVC, and is 19 inches long. With a 24 inch barrel, it'll shoot 65-70 feet level, and 75-80 feet arched. Also, with my 30 inch blowpipe barrel, it'll shoot 80-90 feet flat, and 120-130 feet arched.

The THUG is designed for loser-type use, having a fairly low ROF and (for me, anyway) very long range. It can be muzzle-loaded, or the barrel can be removed for a breech load.

As the THUG is very loud when fired, I made this muffler with Zero's instructions. It cuts the firing noise in half or so, and doesn't interfere with the firing of the gun. It's 3/4 in. PVC, is filled with kleenex, and is covered with a cardboard paper towel tube. The muffling length is about a foot.

I did the math, and the THUG cost me about $20 American to build.

New Homemade Darts

I based the following dart on the topic "Current Darts", especially on GunnedDown's description.

The dart has the usual BB stuck in a hole and then hot glued in, except it is on the back of the 1/2 in. FBR section. Stuck in the hole around the BB is a 2 in. section of straw. Here are the test results, compared with traditional stefans:
With my Nitefinder, de-restricted but with stock barrel:
stefans: 29' to 32' straw darts: 11' to 13'
With my AT3K, 4' copper barrels:
stefans: 18' to 28' straw darts: 14.5' to 18'
With my Blastfire, stock but with a cool paint job:
stefans: 25' to 32' straw darts: 0' to 2.5'
I would guess that they would work better if the straw was 1/2 in. OD, rather than 1/4 in. OD. I've given some of the test darts to Nerfer16, who is going to test them with his AT2Ks and his 1K.

Testing Height

I'm wondering how high you test your guns from. I've modded a couple of guns (an AT3K and an Uruk-Hai Crossbow), and I haven't been getting anywhere near the ranges listed in the mod posts. I've been shooting my guns level from thirty inches off the floor.
