L-Bow 0.3?

Hopefully the 1.0, if all goes well. Here’s what I got done today. Too bad I couldn’t finish it for PA4

Still needs a trigger, catch, handle and stock. Also, while pulling apart the .2 for some spare parts, I noticed that the plunger head was all cracked and broken, so that it would move forward just fine, but would leave the o-ring in the front of the plunger tube as it was cocked. I screwed a plastic bottle cap and a rubber gasket from a bottle of Grolsch into the end of the new plunger head (which was cracked right out of the box, wtf?).  Hopefully that will make a good enough shock absorber. Also, fuck Google Sketchup.

If you read my previous article, “Damage Report“, you already know that I’ve been trying to make a homemade Nerf gun using a pneumatic screen door closer as the plunger, spring and pressure chamber. After my last attempt, I decided to open up the screen door closer and take a look at the guts of the thing.

The Harrowing Tale of the Construction and Destruction of the Doorfucker 3000

This was a post I made on NerfHaven back in January of this year about my experiences trying to build a nerf gun powered by a pneumatic screen door closer.  I’m reposting it here because it sets up my next project nicely.  In the near future I’ll be working on another atempt to build such a blaster which I call “The Langley Bow”.  Or just L-Bow for short.
