    If you're trying to make a G36 (as you posted in another thread) you'd be better off leaving the rail on - the G36 has that distinctive hoop rail.

    You've red-squared the part before the stock, you CANNOT remove that part as it houses the plungertube, bolt etc.

    60cm long aluminum Blowgun. A little more blinged out that what I had at the Nerf war. The front of it has an endcap, which obviously is removed to operate. The mouthpiece is made from a 20mm to 15mm PVC reducing coupler, which has been cut back.

    For when lungs ain't up for the job of firing the Blowgun, call in the HAMP.

    And yes, that bit of cardborad does in fact say pizza

    Curious, I have seen one by U3 or the like on youtube. But may I ask a few questions?
    - Is it tiring to fire?
    - Is the clip, assuming it is a hopper, oversized and awkward or small and low cap'?
    - How exactly does it work? Is it just the air force behind the plunger thing pushing the dart out?
    - Complex, time consuming and expensive or simple, quick and cheap?

    Thankyou for your time .

    Playing around with PVC parts at 5am can sometimes yeild results.


    Full auto blowgun: Super G rapid max
    Fires faster and more reliable than my old one.


    Tis no wye governor. thats a Tee to a 45.
    Using this thing attached to a Hamp yeilds a 2 or 3 dart shotgun

    My first SNAP

    Post  bakabill on Sat Aug 14, 2010 1:34 pm

    Built a snap, they're fantastic - highly recommended for everyone to make as they can be easy as pie.

    This particular one has a pump action grip which was made using random bits of mild steel I found at work - aluminium would make it a lot lighter but hey this was free

    Here it is ... yes it's just green/black coloured e-tape on there for purtiness.



    The halfpipe channel of pvc is there to guide the pumping motion and prevent flexing.
    The metal arms are attached to a thick piece of polycarbonate with a hole dremeled out of it so the 15mm pvc plunger rod can slide freely through it.


    Another view.


    Primed with ~16cm of draw - could have made more but it's already shooting way harder than it should.... full draw [and hence full spring compression] would be about 18cm.



    Priming handle is returned to starting position before firing - three black o-rings are placed at the end to protect the gun from impact shock when the endcap hits the polycarbonate. I made it so that the endcap->polycarbonate->rear bushing would take all the force of the shot as this alleviates the stress placed on the front bushing which, at the moment, is simply held in via friction [no screws/glue etc]


    Here you can see the piece of polycarb.


    With my hopper...

    Springs used were 4x c830 springs from bunnings ... I couldn't find any 836's so had to make do with what was available - it is quite hard to prime for the younger ones, currently working on adding an improved foregrip to help with that.

    Plunger head was made using http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=20011&hl=superlative - rest of the gun was inspired by this design also.

    Ranges = big blast ranges.


    EDIT : added a better shotgun grip



    Gave me a chance to get some pics of the internals for those interested




    plunger assembly is bolted together


    32mm sink plug as plungerhead


    size comparison

    Barrel is a 30cm 17/32 brass tube nested in 13mm aluminium.

    Just some prototypes I'm working on...

    Bio-pod that will be fixed to the gun-



    Low-Profile Nitefinder trigger.
    Inspired by the Crossbow trigger with next to no trigger pull to engage the catch, this Homemade trigger sets off the catch after about 4mm of pull, Don't worry..It do-sent go off unexpectedly, that is what the spring it for (very messy atm)

    RED ACRYLIC FTW!


    These are only prototypes...I'm aware they are very messy.

    I some how made the trigger for this by useing a small peice of metal rod onto a steel shaft useing 100mm of 15mm PVC as a pump action mechanism



    Ranges are mostly 60ft with the scatter shot effect depending on faom size like i said before

    My 2nd pump SNAP







    Uncompressed spring length is 20cm
    When blaster is primed - the spring is at full compression of 6cm.



    T-piece [pump grip] is slid back until snap trigger catches
    wooden dowel protrudes from the rear of the blaster - it is simply used to keep the spring straight behind the plunger rod



    Pump grip is returned to starting position before firing.



    From the rear...



    I used a random spring I had lying around with a very small ID & OD [approx. 10mm ID and 13mm OD]
    Spring has about the same spring constant as the c380 I used in my first SNAP - which is posted earlier in this thread.

    Plunger rod constructed similar to the snap crossbow made by Carbon on nerfhaven [ this thing was originally created as a crossbow attempt - but PVC bow arms didn't work very well for me so I put a spring behind the plunger rod and made it a regular pump SNAP ]

    Just slapped on some more e-tape to decorate it similar to my first snap - too lazy to paint these things...


    Doesn't quite shoot as hard as my first pump snap [this spring is only 20cm long whereas the other snap had 30cm of c380 springs]- but still hard enough to break cardboard.

    Plunger Head/Part of Catch I made for a homemade I'm making ATM.

    It looks messy but cheap and easy to make.

    Features a 25mm Plug, 2x 15mm PVC end caps, a M10 washer and a 1/8 x 18mm screw and nut.

    @K00perboy. Thanks and yeah it is attachable on any gun with a tac rail. But IMO there is really no need for scopes in the nerfing world as no gun would have the range that would be needed to make the scope practical. It was mainly a fun little thing to do mainly for looks.

    Useful if you're playing in a big area as binoculars if the magnification is decent, if you want to see far away. For aiming purposes, i.e. as a scope, pretty useless all round. Nerf guns aren't accurate enough really to warrant it and definitely don't have the range.

    ShootEmUp's post reminded me of a Nerf Bow concept i was working on a while back..



    It will be made to fit regular Nerf Magazines. The image explains how it will work.

    Expected results: ~ 80-120ft (So war legal)

    Maintenance:
    Due to the sliding parts on this bow, regular cleaning and lubrication will need to be carried out.

    Design notes:
    > Blow limbs are to be made from laminated Oak and Perspex to allow for stiffness and flexibility will keep adding material till i get about 20-30 pound draw weight.
    >Limbs are to be bolted to a shaped block of pine. This block is where the user will hold the bow.
    >Piston is to made from cast epoxy for a near perfect fit. O-rings may or may not be added.
    >Plunger rod is to made from 10mm Ally pipe for durability.
    >Barrel material is currently unknown, i would rally like to make it from brass if i can find the right size.

    All other design elements are undecided.

    I will be building in a few weeks if i can find something for the barrel.

    Any Comments|ideas|suggestions|flames, just PM me.

    Also to the admins of the forum, i think you should allow comments in this section so people have the opportunity to suggest changes to increase efficiency, etc, of the ideas which people come up with. But hey, its your site which gives you guys the ability to do what ever you see fit.

    My homemade.

    Very accurate with a 5' CPVC barrel(no kidding, hit a 2" wide flag pole from 50 feet away) and is extremely powerful. All shots were lost way past the end of my 300' tape measure.
