Hey all, I've been dabbling a bit in my copy of Photoshop CS3 and have made a few creations. So far everything has been very simple but I hope to increase my skill and get a bit more advanced. The other day My friend said a phrase that made me crack up, you might think it is funny, and you might not, but when I heard of it I thought of VACC, so here you go. And if anyone wants a sigg, just post or PM me, don't expect much, but who knows, you might like it.
Oh and yeah the images are big, I can scale em for people, or you probably can yourself. Does anyone else do photo shop stuff here?
While the Images upload to photobucket I'll tell you all what I did. A few months back I say several of the pump action mods to the longshot. I really didn't like how bulky the wood was, and how it would inhibit the usefulness in basement wars. I also say the integration of the secondary gun to the bipod area. I decides I would combine both. I mounted the secondary where the bipod was, and dremeled out(I should have been more careful) 2 slots so the pump could move twice the distance. During this process I really messed up the cosmetics of the secondary, and had to fix it with epoxy and hot glue. I gave it a full black paint job. The parts without paint are where I worked on the cosmetics, but ran out of spray paint. I used half inch pvc and hotglue (which has held up surprisingly well) to connect the pump and the bolt. I left the bolt on so I could use it if I wanted too. Despite the bad initial dremeling it pumps very smoothly. I'd like to think this is one of the better ways to easily add pump action, but who knows. I did this whole mod without opening it up. I had to much fear after going through so many mavericks and NFs. (I got an NF to shoot at least 150'(angeled a bit) I've talked enough, so heres some pics. Even though they really dont do it justice, the lighting was bad.
EDIT: the pictures really make it look a bit messed up, but It looks quite a bit better in person.
Just read this please. I'll explain, those two sheets of paper were both layed right across the barrel of a homeade pneumatic (compressed air) gun. the first sheet was shot with 70 psi and triggered with a ball valve. the second sheet was placed the exact same way but was triggered by a burst disk valve. a burst disk is a layer of material screwed into a union joint that will burst at a certian pressure. this is just to show how much difference a valve makes when using air.
I don't know if any of you know about spudfiles.com Its a great and very active community of potato gun builders. (all kinds of ammo are used) I think theres alot Nerf builders could learn in the way of valves, breaches, and pneumatic power. Read a bit in the forums, and look in the showcases. By the way this is NOT an advert, I just think it would be cool to see some collaboration between the two communitys. spudfiles I hope this is the right place for this.
At home depot one day i was browsing through the springs (i was going to attempt a homede:( I saw the handy man springs. i got a two pack and brought them home. i found that they fit in the nitefinder. by totally dremeling out the ars it fired suction taggers and streamlined darts. with the streamline the ranges must be at least 70 feet. it goes more than 3 times farther than a unmodded longshot. taggers and suctions are accurate and sting
