I've decided to go for the more permanent repair/mod. Right now I'm figuring out exactly what sizes of LRT to buy so that I can repair the CPS 1k and build the Silver-Bullet. I think I've got them all figured out, so all thats left to do is place the order. I recently brought the design thread on S...

A: I think this has actually been done before in a few guns. Though from what I know, always in a cylindrical PC, since that would fit it better. B: Attaching the LRT should be as easy as slipping it over the barb and adding a hose-clamp, this is (I beleive) how it has been done in the past and is ...

So then, would it be possible to replace the rubber hart with a short piece of LRT and two hose-clamps? If I did that, I might want to angle the LRT upwards to allow for more space and add a custom cover for it. This could be a very interesting extream-mod. Sort of like turning a stock-gun into a h...

My CPS 1K's rubber hart recently developed a very small cut/rupture in it. The opening is less than a quarter inch long, but I'm not sure how to repair it. Here is a picture of the cut: http://sugarmtnfarm.com/snowwolf/imagesarticles/CutOnHart08230009sm.jpg EDIT: Image fixed. I thought of doing a d...

Huh, with my CPS 1k, the nozzle piece just slid off with a little bit of prying.
No glue was visible underneath.

I've seen a few of mine get worn out, but with a simple repair and some good lubricant, their back in the action.

Wow, thats a beast.
Just a tip for future designs though, your barrel should be about twice the length of your pressure-chamber, otherwise the shell exits the barrel before its achieved maximum velocity.

Nice and cleanly done for a first homemade though. Congrats.

Definitely a good gun.
Though the person I bought mine from off ebay "forgot" to mention that the trigger was broken, the reservoir leaked and the pump seal was going bad. So I had to do several internal repairs before it was fully operational.

I made sure to give them a bad reivew :angry:.

@DX: I buy the Bike-Tire Valves at my local Wal-Mart in the bike-section. You could give the valve smooth connectors instead, but it will need to reduce in diameter a certain amount to allow the rubber to block the end. @ISoaker: There is no noticeable back-flow when I pressurize in that direction....

What is the single most expensive piece on most APHs? The answer will usually be, the check-valves. These simple devices run at prices around $10 each and since APHs will often require two of these, almost half the money spend on a homemade might end up going into its check-valves. In an effort to ...

Hmm, seems like it would be rather inaccurate for timing and keeping it cold until you use it could be an issue. Keep the ideas coming though.

Thought of this too, made a few primitive prototypes, but found it too cumbersome and time consuming to set-up.

Prime's idea has been around for a while.
I've messed around with it some, but never got very good results. The balloons tended not to break appon impact.
Maybe I just need to get some bigger bombs. :angry: (Evil) :laugh:

Well, sounds exciting, but it is in bad need of a grammer clean-up.

This the Seventh version of my new line of WB-Shells. Christened the V7 Snake-Eye, for its resemblance to the Mark 81 Snakeye Bomb . This project is the result of about a year of tinkering with shell designs and I have reached the point where it has gotten so good that its very hard to improve, but...
