Poor Boy's Longbow ;)

So I have a Tac One and I don't like hoppers and longbow mags cost a lot...so I decided I was going to try something.

Someone local was selling a Rap4 P68 pistol with a few mags so I asked him to part one.

This was my Idea.


It looked like it might fit so I started cutting!


A short time later I was done


And it fit! Quite nicely too!



This is what I see from the back.


Then I went to test it...and the macro fitting on the bike grip Blew!


After I changed my pants I experimented with a few different ways to route the air source...and finally I have half settled on what was originally my vision in the first place. I mounted a 3.5oz strait up to the VA...however the burst disk would not clear the trigger frame so I had to use an ASA extension. It works...but it is not exactly ideal, the extension I have is about an inch and a half long and makes the 3.5 hang a bit low...it will do for now until I come up with a better solution.



Tested this out with Reballs...but they didn't want to feed very well. Hoping its just the Reballs...

Still to do:
-Drill a hole in the spring feed for a side feed port!
-Try not to sell the whole dam thing...
-Anno? (After a lot of other bills are paid)


And as a bonus...I discovered enough other spare parts to build a second mag!

You know you're a mag freak when you go through your spare parts and accidently find another mag

Thannks! Yeah, A little more tweeking to do. I need to trim down the bolt that holds it on, and I would like to do a feed port mod to it when I get a chance.

Sure ought to be fun! I have a scenario this coming weekend, but I am not sure I am ready to bring this set up out. I would rather test it first! But if it works then I know it will be fun!

LOL yeah, I wouldn't even consider my self a mag freak, but I still ended up with lots of left over bits... I found another classic body and a second 10rnd spring feed...so I knocked the feedneck off and jbwelded the spring feed on to make a super small mag pistol.

Wouldn't it be cool if someone produced a "VA" mount that angled 90* to put the bottle under the barrel (like the old ICD Pumas had) for use as a stock.

Any chance you could measure the length of that 20 round springfeed for me? I'm looking to use one on a custom build and can't find the information anywhere.

Yes it would! I have seen some people take a standard VA, mill one side of it down, drill and tap it and mount it horizontally.

I think need4reebs solution is better though!

Sure, as soon as I can figure out where my daughter has put my measuring tape?

It came off a RAP4 T68 Firestorm pistol...if that helps you find one?

Still have yet to use it...I keep using my regular stick feed. I will have to test this one day though.
