All darts, excluding 'super domes' are allowed. Regarding blaster bans - basically, don't be a dick. If it's too powerful, we'll ask you to stop using it, and if you have any concerns, feel free to PM me. Singled 4Bs are not allowed unless they have a hopper and OPRV. Titans must have an absolver. Homemade airguns are allowed if they aren't stupidly powerful. It is not recommended that anyone under 13 shows up, and if you are under 13 and you show up without a parent that stays the whole time, you'll be kindly asked to leave.
You are allowed to block anything 5/8" in diameter and under with your blaster. Large ammo (arrows, balls) counts as a shield breaker.
Glue domes are alright as long as they're not crazy. Send a pic if you think that applies
It uses no glue, screws, or adhesive, and all parts can be bought from a hardware store for under 20 dollars, with the exception of tools.
2.75" of draw, but at whatever spring strength you want. I can put a fully compressed Hillman/Everbilt #69 spring in it, without any issues.
Ranges are about the same as any other primary out there, ESLT, SNAP, +bow, etc.
Easiest thing I've ever built, which includes building a slingshot.
Just like the last one, this war will have some very different rules than the usual. This is to continue to prepare the locals for the upcoming changes that are expected for this year's Armageddon.
Firstly, No glue domes. Any softer ammo type is fine, be it slugs, putty wraps, amiors, or others of the like. Follow ryan mcnumbers' guide on how to make if unsure.
Secondly, eye protection will be mandatory for all ages. This is because due to the softness and aerodynamics of the ammo types some higher velocity blasters are able to be used for this war.
Third, blaster restrictions are as follows:
-Titans and anything with a titan tank in it (unless you are firing stock rockets, Drac's rockets, or if you are firing darts out of seven or more barrels simultaneously)
-Homemade Airguns (includes anything with a pump/valve that isn't made by hasbro/lanard/buzzbee such as those drain cleaners)
-Guns with plugged pumps that were designed to shoot anything larger than a mega dart. (LBB/BBBB, Signal Launchers, UMBs etc.) -Relocated pumps must include a stock OPRV and must have comparable range and performance to the same blaster with a stock pump.
First off, an overview of what the blaster looks like.
This design is similar to most homemade airguns, and as such, the firing mech can be replaced with whichever sort of release mechanism desired, PVAT, Ball valve, WNTS, etc. Anything that isn't backpressure.
It works much like Kane's 7-11, compressing air "in the pump", and does not have a secondary tank that stores pressure.
The front nodule is the trigger, and is connected to the backwards check valve in the pump via steel rod. Depressing the front button is how you fire the blaster.

Materials 2" PVC Caulk gun [large] 2" piston cup 9411K14 [Can be substituted with anything that has a 100% seal] Firing mech of some kind [I used a check valve system] 2" to 3/4" PVC reducer bushing 3/4" PVC Washers, nuts, and bolts.
Pic of the piston cup
The main body is just a piece of 2" pvc and the bushing couplered together.
If you havent noticed yet, I forgot to take pictures during assembly, but the whole thing is pretty simple.
In this mod, you do not need to boil the turret, as it is friction fit, and will possibly deform in the water. This is a peg removal and airflow mod, the physical air restrictors or "valves" are crucial to the function of the blaster's turret.
Materials needed: Etape or goop flathead screwdrivers scissors or thin cutting tools screwdriver
Begin with your Rough cut turret
Unscrew screws and pop off the top. You get this.
Pry in the indicated spots.
Front lip should open
Keep going till you get that.
And youre in!
Take out the bottom two air restrictors. Plug up those holes as well. Etape will suffice.
