    Hows the fit of 13mm FBR in 16mm conduit is it really tight, would any other diameter of FBR be better?

    You'll have a real hard time fitting it in 16mm. 16mm is tight on blue foam, and 13mm is a fair bit thicker than that. 13 is the only suitable size for stephans anyway. Get blue foam, it's better than anything else.

    When making stefans you will have to stretch your foam you should get a nice springer fit with stretched fbr in your upvc.

    By the way I use Clark rubers fbr.

    Its not that much of a difference, stock and blue foam are 12.6 - 12.8mm, i have some 13mm fbr stefans and they fit perfectly in some 9/16, not sure on 16mm conduit ill probably never use it

    You'd be surprised by how much 0.3mm makes in a barrel. 16mm is really snug, even tight, on blue foam. FRB and conduit don't mix.

    Use 16mm aluminium for fbr, it's a nice smooth fit, AND it's shiny.

    Does anyone know if triple shots are still available? I've checked my toys r us but they aren't the brightest bunch.

    Unless anyone else can recommend some blasters that have a shotgun grip and similar aesthetes to a shotgun, also decent performance 70+ when modded.

    My girlfriend likes shotguns so i want to-do a couple up for her, she has been using a alpha trooper at the moment but its such a piece of junk compared to the longshot's and nite finders.

    Great! Thanks for the help.

    Anyway, there's still some questions left. Would someone, preferably someone with experience using Polycarbonate, mind answering?

    What's a good tool to cut Polycarbonate with?

    Where is a good place to buy quite large quantities of Polycarbonate? Online or offline.

    Are there any springs that are roughly 20cm long with a load of 20-25kg, or will I need to get one made? Is 25kg an exceptionally tough spring to pull back?

    What's the plunger length on a +Bow?

    What's the load of a K26 spring?

    Thanks in advance, everyone.

    Read this thread for info about springs, lots of revelant information: http://www.nerfrevolution.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2828&hilit=NIC+spring

    This thread is about machining plastics: http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8007

    Find the plusbow instructions if you want specifics however most of them have 6-7 inches draw.

    Thanks for those links! The plastic machining thread in particular was incredibly useful. Now...

    MOAR QUESTIONS.

    What's a good tubing to make the exterior of a plunger out of?

    How would I attach a polycarbonate bolt to a brass breech? Note that the only power tools I presently have available are a drill, a jigsaw and an angle grinder. Would I require other tools to make it work?

    What's a good thickness of polycarbonate to make the exterior of a homemade out of?

    Yet again, thanks in advance.

    I would assume that the normal way of using 3-day Araldite would be sufficient to attach the polycarb bolt, though I'm a bit confused with what you mean by bolt? A brass breech is made up of two sections as you're probably aware - the bolt, which attaches to the plunger tube, and the barrel. The tolerance fit between the 19/32" and 9/16" brass tubing is what makes it so successful.

    Also, for your tooling, I really think you will find it difficult to make a brass breech without a rotary tool of some description - not impossible, but definitely a challenge.

    Cheers,

    I'm referring to the bolt. So, Araldite is sufficient? Good. I'm paranoid about stuff breaking mid-combat; since I'm an HvZ player, I generally don't get a second shot. And this will likely be used mostly in HvZ as a designated marksman rifle.

    Alright. By 'rotary tool', are you referring to a Dremel?

    if you are strapped for cash there is a cheaper alternative to a Dremel at bunnings.
    Its a DYI Rotary Tools Kit by Ozito.
    They have a $30 (i think) kit and a $50 one (i have the $50 one).
    It's not as good quality as a Dremel but it does the job fine and has a 3 year warranty.

    Nope, 20mm conduit doesn't work for standard size darts. If you really want the rebarrel a Raider, I'd recommend a Conduit Breach. I can't remember where I saw it on here, but to uses 16mm conduit for the barrel. I don't have the link though, sorry...

    Doesn't sound too bad. I don't know what cold be causing it... Maybe relube your pump? I'm not sure, but it doesn't sound like it would be doing any long term damage.

    Yeah true, also I dont think its anything that causes a normal squeak, and my pump dosent get any extra friction when it occurs, maybe something to do with the air coming into the tank.

    ALSO does the SB tank need reinforcing? I see stress marks near my piston towards the center back of the tank.

    2 questions, does it matter which dirrection you place the bath plug as a plunger head and did anyone have luck with the oznerfnerd spring, mine 3 of 6 are bent due to them not compressing properly.

    When you bought them (for 1 dollar each) you did read the bit in bright red about them possibly distorting in certain applications?

    Are you using it in a longshot, or some custom tripleshot application in which you have used a bath plug and filed away the cocking lever to get maximum clicks (and therefore compression)?

    Mine are bent too but I don't see that becoming a problem. The compress just fine and have maintained structural integrity. I'm pretty happy with my bunch - definitely my favourite spring so far.

    I agree with that, the ONN spring gives good ranges to my tripleshot and compresses fine.

    Yes,

    When I first got these in, they worked fine and I didn't notice any distortion or any problem for that matter till I opened the blaster for other reasons.

    I just want it made clear that I have clearly described them as what they are: a discontinued seconds item.

    At a buck each they are selling for less than what they cost me, as a runout special.

    Warnings are in bright red in the listing, but it's amazing how many people don't read it.

    They have been a popular special, and are very powerful.

    They are NOT the same spring that comes in the Longshot kit.

    Cheers all,

    No worries and thanks...

    I am a bit funny (obsessive/compulsive) about my products, and it was a big decision to even sell this spring even as a seconds runout.

    Not at my Bunnings. They do have the same thing in grey though. Probably just different brand = different colour?

    The grey plugs from Bunnings are a softer rubber than the red "Fix-a-tap" ones
