Anyways, as you may know, I have been working on the same project for the past few months and posting regular updates on my youtube channel about what I call the Fireskorpion.
As you can see, the blaster is finished now, and is hitting a respectable eighty feet fired paralell to the ground. For those of you who don't know, the Fireskorpion is a firefly shell that has a Scorpion Bow plunger tube inside. I really enjoy how the paintjob has turned out, and I have even added some cool LEDs to the shell.
I've also done some serious internal work to get this thing absolutely perfect. The hardest part in the whole process however, was in getting the plunger tube to seal with the turret. It took me a long time to get the system optimized, but I believe that the effort was truly worth it.
The internal mechanism is actually quite simple, apart from the timing, which took some time to get right. However, the trigger system works exactly like a snap, only pressed by a metal bar and not a finger.
Overall, this blaster was an extremely rewarding yet challenging experience. I would highly recommend building one if you have the time and patience to do so. I really enjoy how the blaster has turned out, and I know that you are too. Check out this youtube video for a video overview and firing demonstration.
