    I hope you haven't glued that plunger head on. Maybe try using the proper method with washers and a screw?

    Why would someone buy off you when you can't be bothered to do things properly? Not trying to be mean, just pointing out some flaws. Upload some more pictures of better quality and I'm sure you'll have more success.

    Yeah I would recommend putty around the turret mech area, other things such as reinforcing the pump mech is essential too.

    Dude this is a good idea though you have to deal with the fact that your twelve and unfortunatly you are trying to compete with people who have offered the service for longer and have more reputation after all silent scope invented what your trying to sell so I for one would prefer his product. This mean you need something new and captivating.

    Sorry for such a long and sort of negitive post but unless you have something new to bring to the table you will struggle the fact is kids vs adult equals adult most of the time.

    Hey why not offer octoshots nobody has done that yet.

    My best wishes hope this helps.

    If you ended up being quite good and have good feedback when you start to make OctoShots, I would probably get one off you. But I guess we will have to wait and see wont we.

    I think what you're doing is great! I encourage this kind of work from our younger members, it makes it look like our younger members know what the shat they're doing.

    Mavshot is correct, the Child Vs Adult thing will be an unfortunate view that most 'customers' will have. However, you can beat this stereotype of child creating more 'inferior products' against adults by doing the following.

    You're going to need a good camera. Better quality pictures = more convincing. The key of taking photos (even with a cheap digital camera) is lighting. Lighting is key as if you say take this picture on a rainy day, the lens is unable to capture as much light and the picture will be fuzzy. Take this time to say take a picture say in white light or even sunlight (not too much though).

    Secondly, you should demonstrate why your products are good. You're going to have to make a video about your blaster. Quick and short.

    1. Here is my blaster
    2. Here it is shooting
    3. This is what I can do to them

    Hope that helps. Keep up the good work =).

    Thanks for your ideas and I like to have lots of feedback to learn a bit more
    and I am making a video of it later today but it may not be good quality.
    You can't say that my blaster is rubbish because the only person who has tested it is me.
    But we will wait and see.

    http://www.oznerf.com/t3596-springs-13kg-and-16kg-options-longshot-triple-shot-hand-cannon = Hope that helps. PM Oxymoron as you can these springs in bulk for $26 per 5 13kg springs.

    Also, just because you know that your blaster is 'good', how are we meant to know that they are good? Hence why you'll need to prove to us they shoot good. Avoid hot glue, it seems that you've just hot glued those barrels on your quadshot, those are going to break off.

    I have a cheap LS sized spring on special (it's a seconds/run out) at the moment, that may fit your bill...

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/270871747447?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1586.l2649

    At 1 buck each, you could get 10 in a satchel for $1.65 ea posted.

    Would that help with your budding enterprise?

    Another way would be to go with the standard spring combined with a standard LS spring, which is quite effective in this blaster.

    If I may offer some suggestions...

    Don't use that crappy hot glue at all, use super strength epoxy and let it cure for the full 3 days.

    Don't listen to armchair critics who knock your efforts from behind the safety of their keyboard, if your products are good they will build their own reputation.

    Make it neater. Don't post photos of things half done, just put up a well made finished product.

    Good luck with your efforts.

    Have you replaced the plunger tube? If not you will probably find that the bath plug is too tight and performance will suffer. YMMV of course.
