Topics I've Started

THIS one simple design will have you in TEARS...

22 March 2017 - 11:54 PM

Hello, everyone! I have been dead for a long time on here. I'm back for today because I couldn't keep this a secret any longer. THIS PROJECT IS ALMOST COMPLETE, this is not a full write-up. It loads and fires but has a bad seal. I can fix that but I don't have time--I haven't touched the project or even the tools in many months. That's why I'm just gonna show you my thing and let you do what you want with it.

 

No official name but let's call it the Sex Pistol for now. First person to perfect it gets to rename it. But do you really want to?

The biggest inspiration was the Multiple Orgasm, by makeitgo. The day I saw that thread was the day I finally had what I needed to make the SP. Let me tell you, I had some far out ideas about how to make a mag-fed pistol, none of them realistic.

 

The Sex Pistol is just a like a real pistol. You can load a magazine in the handle, cock the slide back, slide returns forward, you pull the trigger, dart leaves the barrel. It's got some weight to it, feels good in the hand, and is 12" long.

Of course, nothing stays the same. I've changed some moving parts when I found out that the real world isn't the same as the 3D model world.

The best change I made was the way I made the handle and the magazines. For the handle, I used a heat gun to soften the 1-1/4" PVC and then shoved two lengths of 1/2" PVC inside, side by side, to "spread" it from the inside. While it cooled, I pressed it between two wooden boards to flatten the sides a bit. The result is so comfy and strong. For the magazines, you can do the same with 1" thin-wall PVC, with two lengths of 1/2" CPVC inside--OR you can shove the softened 1" pipe inside the handle you already made. As it cools, wiggle it around and slide it in and out--this will keep it from hardening and getting stuck. You can cool the pipe faster by spraying water on it. ALL OF THIS SHOULD BE DONE IN A VENTILATED AREA--some, like Captain Slug, would suggest that you also wear some kind of respiratory protection.

 

The coolest change is the way the slide can be locked in the cocked position to allow for easy magazine swap. This came about from a design change where the magazine would be "closed" at the top which wouldn't allow the dart-retainer-lips-things to spread around the bolt. I like this feature, even if the magazine lips are open and allow the bolt to pass through. You wouldn't need this slide-lock if you decide not to add the slide return spring, which is on the barrel and pushes the slide forward after being cocked. But why wouldn't you want that?! It's so cool!

The most difficult change was the damn "mobile" catch and trigger assembly. The first reason for this change was that the plunger and catch would slide back in the plunger tube, instead of firing, when the trigger was pulled. Only way to stop that was to hold the slide forward with your free hand, which is dumb. The solution was to come up with a trigger that pushed up or forward or both. I went with the one in the middle on the left side of the animated image linked below. The trigger is a length of 1/2" CPVC, with a hole cut out to allow for the gray flexible trigger-catch-pusher-thing. The gray strip is just thin metal with a rounded nub of plastic glued on it.

The second reason was that the simple 3-layer catch shown in the animation was not easily fabricated with my sexy Dremel and wasn't strong enough. The result is a big ugly thing but I believe it is an original concept. Imagine the plunger entering from the right, catching on the ring in the middle. The trigger pushes up on the ring, which is bonded to, and flexes up on, a strip of CPVC extending from the CPVC section that is the left end of the catch.

There are a few things I designed that I'm pretty sure are new ideas. Dammit, I give up, I'll just have to get better pictures tomorrow. I haven't updated the model so you won't like it if you see it. Even if I wanted to, my computer is too old to be sexy and can't even install AutoCAD properly.

 

A few little notes:

-Magazines can be made any length but mine is currently long enough for 14 darts

-Magazines can fit darts up to 1-1/4" in length

-Ranges aren't expected to be impressive, even with a perfect seal. Current stroke is 2-3/4", I believe, which is pathetic, I know. That's just how it is, unless you make the pistol longer.

-I know it's big but it's also smaller than you think.

-Here's a Google Drive folder with all the pictures and videos and maybe the .dwg model file thing.

-Another fitting name for this pistol is Pillow Talk. I was gonna say something gross that rhymes with "eremature pjaculation" but I didn't. Also, it's full unofficial name is Sex Pistol: Experimental Reloading Mechanism.

 

One more thing. When I was about halfway done building the first crappy prototype that barely held together for a few days, I emailed the guys that print and sell ESLTs and PullSCRTs. They said they'd print any design if you were willing to pay for it. The price they gave me wasn't sexy and they said my model wasn't printable. That's fine, no hard feelings. I had laughs and tears working on this. Thank you guys for not stealing my concept and making it better and printable.

 

Okay, I'm spent.


My 1st Homemade

18 February 2008 - 02:16 AM

In honor of the current great cause, Anonymous Vs Scientology, I have decided to call my 1st homemade Mr. Anon--or maybe just Anon. The first goal was to make primary rifle that could use the mags from a Longshot or Recon, that part is succesful. The second goal was to add a foregrip pump like a shotgun, also succesful. Last, I wanted to use detachable stocks like the Recon, success again. The only thing wrong with the gun now is that it isn't complete. All that is left to build is the trigger and plunger.

The whole thing.

You can see that the trigger is already cut out, I just need to shape it further and add guide holes. This thing is a real bitch to cut out even with a diamond wheel. For some reason I was able to cut this metal with a normal cutting wheel faster than with the diamond wheel.

The bolt and barrel are the same as FA_24's Longshot Angel Breech but with slightly different measurements. See here, click for larger view:

I had to grind away the nub on the feed lip to fit the mag in the 3/4" thin-wall bolt carrier.

Click here for a Flash of the way the gun will work.

The measurements.
Anon:
whole length---------------24"
plunger stroke------------3.5"
effective barrel length----9.5"

Longshot:
whole length---------------23"
plunger stroke-------------ask Captain Slug"
effective barrel length-----9.5" (when Angel Breeched)

I will make a write-up while I make a second which should be immediately after finishing this one.

UPDATES:
You can start building Mr. Anon now! Click on components to see measurements. Click BACK to return to main page and select another part.

Bolt carrier/barrel design changed.

The trigger is complete.But trigger assembly still needs to be made.

Bolt carrier and plunger completed.


Okay, that's it for now. Question, comments, suggestions?

Making Shipping Cheaper For The Trading Forum

25 October 2007 - 03:13 AM

I have a freind who works at the post office and he says that if enough people in the country do not mail anything (letters, packages, etc) for maybe a week then the shipping rates and post stamp costs would have to go down. And since the trading forum is full of long-distance package sending, this could benefit us. The reason for this topic is to choose a week between now and Christmas (when shipping really gets bad) to "go on strike". Also you should let your family know and announce this on any other forum that you freqeunt. Then tell them to tell everyone they know. The more the merryer.

You can do this knid of thing with other stuff too like gas prices. IF nobody drives on a certain day (or days) then gas stations will lower ther prices til you buy from them.

The idea is nice but they overdid it. They mentioned physics and I laughed because I'm sure the ground doesn't change that much from a grenade. And about 3 minutes into the video the old guy is using a longshot to show the designers some military strategies. Here is the video.

Halloween

Don't tell me that you don't trick-or-treat (or at least dress up) because everyone does in some way or another. What will you dress up as? Last year I was Oogie Boogie from Nightmare Before Christmas. This year I want to be either the Mayor or the scientist from the same movie. If you can, post pictures of you favorite past costume and the one you'll use this year. I will do that tomorrow. Try to post some homemade costumes because I hate seeing the ones sold at walmart.
