Improving The Seal On Your Rear Loading 1500

12 December 2009 - 11:32 PM


Wax paper
A penny



Take appart your turret, rip out the 4 small cylinders.

Posted Image

Take your penny, shove it into the gears, the top of the penny should be flush with the top of the center.

Posted Image

Get a smooth surface, tape down some wax paper.

Posted Image

Take a large amount of epoxy, dump it on the paper, and smash the turret on top.

Posted Image

Once the epoxy has hardened, scoar around the edges of the penny and remove it.

Drill out the holes in the epoxy.

Posted Image

Cut away the excess epoxy

Posted Image

Take a neoprene washer, cut off a small piece, glue on each part in the respective areas.

Posted Image

And your done, now you have a rear loading 1500 turret with a perfect seal and inter-changeable barrels.

The smaller piece of the neoprene washer makes the turret distribute the load of the spring more evenly stopping the turret from bending and ruining the seal, However you may need to spray some silicon lube in the turret as it becomes harder to rotate.

I Present To You The Hefty Clip

16 February 2009 - 12:36 PM

Good to be doing another write-up, haven't done one in quite a while.

So lets get started!

This will allow you to use stefens in your longshot.

Tools and materials:
-exacto nife
-epoxy putty
-rectrangular wood dowel
-possibly a dremel

First you need to open it up, pry open the tabs with an exacto knife or cut them off with a dremel.

After you have opened it, measure and cut your wood, glue it on at the appropriate positon according to the length of your stefens. Make sure you measure and glue it on straight,

This is where I origanly stopped, it broke after 1 use :angry:

Wimpy, wimpy, wimpy.

Hefty, hefty hefty:

Reinforce the wood with a large ammount of epoxy putty, make sure there is a small gap in between the two pieces of wood when the clip is reassembled.

Posted Image

Now, take the slider piece and cut it so there is about a 1/32th of an inch gap between it and the wood.( If you do not do this properly you will not be able to fire the last shot in your clip!)

Posted Image

Grab the spring and glue it in so that the spring is flush with the open edge of the slider.

(sorry couldn't get the camera to focus properly)
Posted Image

Reassemble it and your'e done!

This clip is much more durable and, in my opinon, easier to mod!

Trailer, looks like a modern day version of DBZ, I don't know how it is going to be anything better than a bad kung-fu movie though.

Can Anyone Say Scammer?

Follow this . I saw a guy selling a fully modded longshot on ebay for 16$ and I thought: "Wow, I might just have to buy that". So I carefully read the fine print, and it turns out he is selling the spring to a longshot. Despite the picture and title.

Has any one almost fallen for something similar to this?
