    Only slightly angled, I'd say less than 10 degrees, probably closer to 5 degrees. It's just natural for me after having shot compound bows for so many years.

    Yes well that is usually how you would fire a blaster. I doubt that
    anyone actually fires their blaster in a war at zero degrees (flat angle).

    I'm starting to think I've done something wrong with my longshot. What I'm hitting doesn't look or feel like 100 feet. It's hard to say without a proper tape measure. My LS also makes a different sound to yours. Mine's more a pop than what yours is.

    Mine makes a fairly loud whack - it's pretty hard to pick up on the video, but it's quite loud. I've still got some padding on the plunger head though, and I've put about 1000 darts through it, and opened it up routinely. The only damage I'm noticing is at the rear of the plunger tube, where the backplate screws on. But I've used some JB weld, and re-tapped the holes. Only time will tell how it goes.

    Everything I've modded on my LS is in this guide - maybe you need to work on plunger seal/barrel seal, as that's what took quite a bit of trial and error for myself. BTW, I bought a 50m tape from bunnings for $8 I think.

    Well If it does break you can always get an aluminum one.
    The problem is if it breaks during use, then the plunger
    casing will possibly "explode" backwards which could cause more damage
    to the blaster.

    It's actually the orange screw recess that weakened, not the backplate. A little more complex, but I'm sure I could fix it with Devcon.

    Oh okay then, yeah there would probably be simple methods to fix that up.

    Not sure if I'd call it a simple fix, but shouldn't be too hard. Getting the right material would be the hardest part - not everyone has JB weld/devcon. But anyway, that's the trade-off for using the spring set-up that I have.

    I love the paintjob. I'm tempted to do something similar to my Longshot now.

    Heya clunk, i was wondering if this would be too much of a pain in the ass or something, but i've got a question. im buying brass tubing from mcmaster.com, and i was wonderin if the sizes you posted were inner diameter or outer? it would be sick if you answered. thanks.

    Dude, everyone says brass as the same sizes, if you go and get half inch from McMaster, it'll be the same as the half inch Clunk has. So it doesn't matter if it's internal diameter or not.

    But I'm pretty sure it's internal diameter.

    Actually it's OD. For reference, wall thickness is 1/64, so 1/2" fits perfectly into 17/32" and so on.

    Erm... last I checked McMaster doesn't directly sell outside the US any more. You guys using a forwarding service or something?

    Like 238232 said, it's OD for the sizes. With different wall thicknesses, you could possibly end up with anything, especially from the US.

    My advice would be to ensure you buy K&S engineering brass. There's retailers for it everywhere.
    The part numbers you need are:

    KS139 - 1/2"
    KS140 - 17/32"
    KS141 - 9/16"
    KS142 - 19/32"


    Or you could simply buy breeches from me! haha


    McMaster-Carr will sell outside the US on a case-by-case basis. I'd imagine it would have to be a fairly expensive order for them to consider it.

    Yeh, I thought so. Confirmed range dead flat from shoulder height is 130 feet approximately.
