Topics I've Started

Pump Action Rifle

16 November 2008 - 04:40 PM

I have been talking about this for a while and keeping it under wraps. I just started to build it today and made a design for it this morning. Here it is:

Not great quality because the lines are very light but you probably get the idea.

The back.
Posted Image
The middle.

The front.

Right now I'm trying to find a way to make a breech so that when I prime it it opens and closes but nothing effective has come to mind yet. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them. I do intend on building this within at least two weeks but the school year is really picking up right now so no promises.
Suggestions to improve the design would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Those pictures are awful, I'll go over the picture darker and repost them.
Edit: These should be better.

My Bigbow

This is one of my two projects I am working on.

It is a SnapBow made from 2" PVC.

The ranges are definitely better then the SnapBow. My sock is on differently then usual. I have a PVC 1/2 to 3/4" bushing with the 1/2" part cut off so it is just the 3/4" male adapter. I filled this with epoxy putty and then screwed it into the gun with 1 " screws. I then put 3/4" female busing on this with the elbow leading to the rest of the stock.


Gears Of War 2

08 November 2008 - 11:07 PM

What do you all think of the new Gears of War. Last night there were some server issues but it has been resolved this morning. I bought it last night at 10:00 and played a couple hours of online. I then woke up this morning and played it from noon to nine in campaign. I ended up beating it in the end. The game was very fun with only a few glitches. If you don't have it yet I would suggest getting it. Anyone else have any opinions?

The Cheapatizer

This was a design that I have had on paper for a very long time. Nerfboi finally got me off of my ass to make it with his post in my SnapFinder topic. The gun may not exactly be cheaper in material ($15) but it is much easier to machine (no need for a lathe, don't need to heat up the PVC. It is a little longer in length because I didn't hide part of the trigger in the handle for an easier machining process. It is exactly 6". Without further adieu, The Cheapatizer:

And a close up of the barrel nested in the plunger.

I'm pleased with it but I may try to make a smaller one. No ranges yet, it is enough though.

My First Self Designed Homemade

25 October 2008 - 07:39 PM

Yesterday I got home from school and decided that I wanted to make a pistol for integration on my SnapBow. It didn't happen. What did happen was a pistol that was to large for the SnapBow. I started with a design that was like a Snap but with a lot of variations. Here is the design:

I had to change the size to get a reasonable amount of compression from it but it still close to the original design. This is the gun:
Posted Image
Unprimed- 10"

Primed- 13.5"

The barrel I have on it is 9/16" brass nested in 1/2" PVC.

It can be held comfortably with one hand. No ranges yet since it is pitch black and raining out but I'll try to get some tomorrow. The darts are moving at about the same velocity as a Disk Shot pistol. The spring in it is from home depot. It is about equal to the +Bow spring but it is 4". I have one full one and one half one inside.

I'll answer any questions and I will possibly make a write-up. Also if anyone has a name for it post them.
