Modified rail gun muzzles

Marco posted this muzzle in another thread. I bought this one, too but in the end used the other modified Cressi posted above. I was worried it would be too easy to loose 14mm bands on this muzzle...

Re: Modified rail gun muzzles

My humble mods:
A Pathos muzzle with a bit of putty to not have double 14mm bands slide around too much. And hey, I gained 1cm of stretch,haha:

Re: linking rubbers together for more speed?

Your explanation sounds like you want to take a piece of rubber, cut it in half, glue it back together and expect to get twice the retraction speed...?

Re: linking rubbers together for more speed?

Yeah, I read that OP a bunch of times, didn't get it at all. And even now, with the sketch, I am still not getting it;)

Anders, I think you need to put a gun in that sketch and try again.

Re: Moving sharkfins further back on spear?

Not sure I got this...? You mean, if the sharkfins were further at the rear, then 360% would overpower the shaft? But as the fins are now, 360 is ok? Not sure that makes sense to me, as 360% on a...

Re: Moving sharkfins further back on spear?

Anders,
If there's really that much overhang on the shaft, then chop of the end - it's 3grams loss of mass we are talking...

Re: Fusion Roller Build

You might actually have a point there. But can you remember which spray glue you used? At least two types are said to not have adverse affects on the resin.

Re: 120cm 3K Carbon Barrels For Sale

I actually have that muzzle, too in a box somewhere. I just remember feeling Salvi wasted a bit too much real estate with the large band opening. But the ramp is interesting, I might try this muzzle...

Re: Fusion Roller Build

Using spray glue to tack down the fiber is a well-used trick in the composites industry and for years, I have seen it debated on forums whether it has any adverse effects - seems for normal use,...

Re: New Pelengas Carbon Tank multi form pneumatic gun

That sounds weird to me. Bike frames are laminated under fairly high pressure and compaction but there is no pressure inside a finished frame. If the laminate is well designed, there shouldn't really...

Re: New Hunt Shaft w/ built in Slip tip

I don't know if this is still the case, but a few years back I heard that Mr. Devoto would do custom orders if the minimum order was around USD 500, which is quite reasonable and if you and a friend...

Re: Briante spearguns

Actually, speaking of 3D printing and casting (not saying that's what they are doing here ) - there's now such a thing as lost PLA casting. So, you print first, then burn out the PLA and then cast;)....

Re: Briante spearguns

I'll read up on that Markforge but unless the metal itself is really fused during printing or oven baked at incredibly high temps afterwards it might not offer much improvement.
Most of the metal...

Re: Briante spearguns

I might have been generous calling it TIG. Unless it is titanium, there is no real need for TIG (I think?). It might be welded any number of ways and then the weld looks to have been ground off later...

Re: Briante spearguns

Itís a beauty. But I donít think itís from a solid block. Probably tig welded, instead. Will have to look again to be sure, though.

Re: Briante spearguns

Yep, speaking of organic curves, it looks like nature could have made it.
It does look a whole lot like SS but in some places, I think I have read they might use titanium?

Great work on your...

Re: Briante spearguns

Don't get me wrong, I love the shape of the Urukay and if there was ever an E-type speargun, C4 is it!
Maybe I was a bit too rough using the C4 as an example above - they are probably still the...

Ah, didn't see the #26 catch:)

There are a few good ways to put inserts into hollow core composites. Just takes a bit more work and might not be super cheap in terms of materials but I think we...

Re: Briante spearguns

Ah, I googled a bit and while I can't find any cutaways, I do see a lot of "undercuts" where the rear of the trigger guard sweeps up.

I did the same, quite extreme and accomplished the same as...

Re: Briante spearguns

Yes, I agree that the butt plate is amazing looking.
What I actually like about that kind of trigger guard is that apart from the depression for the fingers, is that it allows you a bit more...

Re: Briante spearguns

Hey Pete,
I think you might have missed a band.
I think it has one reverse band and three regulars - plus the optional kicker on top. So, I guess a 2-2.25 band gun not counting the kicker which...

Re: Briante spearguns

I guess the idea behind the plastic shaft guides is that they can be changed out easily according the shaft diameter which would help the shaft and trigger always being aligned.
I agree with Majd,...
