    ^^ Try re-sizing your picture mate, so we can see the whole blaster.

    Abowden: I sell locally if it's not a commissioned piece, and there's half a year of leeway to sell a finished work. Only after that time does it go in the pile. But when they do sell, it's a slaughter. :p
    False: Yep, it's the D9-Looking Doubleshot.
    Clunk: Resized it. Sorry, usually the 800 works. Backed it down to 600.

    LOL! Looks so war illegal. At the same time has marshmellow blaster on the side. I've leave that on there if you want to use it at a war :P.

    If that was pump action. Life complete.

    Well, Lilbro, your not going to like what I've done with it now, haha. Finished the wooden part. What colour should I paint the black parts? Or should I leave them?

    False: It would depend on the look you're going for. Modern techy-looking crossbow, silver up the black, and give the now-silver areas a light gray or black speckle wash, then Satin clear coat or lacquer. If you want an older (steampunk, victorian, or medieval) look, bronzed gold is the way to go. Bronze base with gold highlights, matte coat or light lacquer. Your wood turned out great (really, it looks fantastic from the pics, outstanding job) and already looks a bit archaic so I'd myself be tempted to go with the bronzed gold at this stage to stay with the current aesthetic, but it's ultimately up to you.

    Latest update on the WTFG... well, I mean, it's not the WTFG NOW, it's the AMR-B15 Dual Velociter Plasma Cannon. Eventually going to be an homage to District 9, complete with white and orange color scheme... something I've never done before and am looking forward to. Same internal stuff as before, and did a range test; about 50 feet even on average with just a little variation. Showed the darts I'm using in the pic. I'd be curious to PETG the shells and see if I can spit any more distance out of this baby.

    I think you just need to work on the stock and have that face scope on top and it'll look epic.

    This is my first painted and modified LS. I'm planning to buy another one and making it perfect by adding an brass breech, 14 kg spring, integrating it with the LSFG and painting it blood red and matte black.

    @Dietzie I see how it works, I hope it is as reliable as the other breach design, yours is entirely different (for those who didn't that)

    so looking at your photo i understand that it works by pushing the entire breech into the front barrel?

    @ frosty: That how it works. The breech/reciever and barrel are mobile.
    @ abowden: It feeds reliably, just have to make some adjustments to get it firing reliably.

    I suggest cutting the barrel hole closer to the breach (couldn't hurt right?) and bevelling the barrel cover.

    is it because the barrel is too tight? or the breech and receiver are retracting before the plunger is firing?

    I saw this thread yesterday. http://orangemodworks.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1309548048/14#14

    I thought "Hey, that looks pretty do-able." And I picked up my longshot, and my barrel break, and smiled crazily.

    24 hours later, I hold this in my hands. (Tough guy pose was not optional)

    Nice masterkey mod you got there, Sambo! If that barrel extension on your LS is purely for cosmetics and you don't necessarily shoot with it, disregard this next observation - but I can see a fair bit of flex in it due to the sheer length and the silencer/flash hider suspended on the end. That, and would imagine that the amount of conduit the dart has to travel through would drastically (and negatively) effect ranges. I reckon lop off 6-8 inches and you'll be better off. Just a thought

    Thanks for noticing, I forgot to point this out.
    I don't shoot with it (It's now impossible to load the Barrel Break with the barrel on), but the 'flash hider/suppressor' on the end is made of foam wrapped in duct tape. It's very light, and I get suprisingly little to no flex on it. It's the same length as the Front Gun, so it has the same effect on performance as when that is attached.

    How's yours coming along?

    Most of the firing issues I am having is due to the barrel/breech cover not being fixed in position yet so as I can still adjust it.
    All parts are yet to be beveled.
    Should have it done in the next couple of days

    Finished up the paint job, I went with drybrushed silver for the black parts. Also, I made a range test video hereon my channel. Results: flat- around 100ft, angled- 115ft

    How's yours coming along?

    Ah that makes sense, thanks for clearing that up! Without knowing much details on the mod itself, or the practicality of this workaround I'm about to suggest - would you be able to mount the Barrel Break from the barrels themselves, making the aft of the gun (trigger, breeches, etc) the moving part? It'd take some considerable strengthening/reinforcement, but it would then mean you could load the BB whilst the barrel extension is in place. Just something to ponder..

    For risk of making this thread more "heavy discussion" instead of the "light discussion" that is the suggested norm, and since you asked, here's a very (emphasis on very) rough mockup of my current blaster.


    (excuse the shocking persian rug, it was a hand me down that makes standing on a concrete shed floor much more comfortable, and I had a shortage of clear desk space)

    For those of us playing at home, I've taken the front portion of a Stampede, attached it to the body of a Triple Shot, and (unoriginally) plonked your former Longstrike stock on the end.

    I'm running a TS/Recon/AT(?) spring combo at the moment, it's easy enough to prime and doesn't seem to mind being dry fired. I plan to be upgrading to a 13kg spring to simplify (and hopefully upgrade power).

    The nifty thing of this build is that I'm experimenting with a conduit/petg breech setup, using recessed o-rings and minimal e-tape to create a 100% airtight and surprisingly low-friction seal that can accommodate streamlines (at worst - if you're in a pinch for ammo options mid-war).

    The breech cover will be connected to the rotational arm of the turret (RIP) via a robust aluminium strip, which travels along a lengthened pump action draw; far enough to allow a streamline to drop from a conduit clip that will run along the top of the gun and line up with the breech opening. The theory is to have the ammo capacity of a low-profile RSCB but without the dead-space inherent of such setups.

    I didn't really intend for this to become an essay, and will (time allowing) put together a detailed overview of the workings of the blaster at a later date (nearer completion). Awesome blasters coming out of the woodwork, really excited to see what's going on here

    Finally done with the AMR-B15 (AKA "WTFG"). Not bad for a bunch of junk parts headed for the dump and a paint job I've never tried before! Ranges are still around 45-50 feet with weighted Lanard Short Darts, holding capacity of 15 darts, fires practically all kinds but is best with the named ones. I think I figured out too late how I was SUPPOSED to get the orange lines cleaner (base of black, tape, base orange, tape, base white... so obvious in retrospect) but I'm still very satisfied with how it turned out. Plus it's nice to get away from bronze, gold, and silver for a while. :p

    >.> Sorry. This one was just a really weird blaster for me so I wanted to track it publicly. On the bright side, this is the last shot so it'll be a while before I post one 'o my own again. Still gonna lurk and comment as per usual, though. :p

    Keep on posting away. These sort of things is what inspires others to mod their blasters or aesthetically improve the look them.
