Handheld hybrid 'rifle'

Unread postAuthor: SpudBlaster15 » Sat Aug 11, 2007 12:11 am

I decided that my hybrid was safe enough to fire from my hands, so I converted it into a handheld launcher. It now has laser guidance, and the rear of the launcher is shaped to looks like a stock. It is a much different experience firing from your hands, and I like it much better.

And here is a hybrid video.

thats pretty cool. what kind of mix do you take it to? i think its really quite cool that it's hand held, but at the same time i think you are just ever so slightly insane.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

Laser Guidance would be awesome, but would also cost a sh|t load, a laser dot in the mean time will do im sure.

Very nice build! I love it, it looks great, nice and clean they way I like 'em.

^^haha, I think a change in words would be in order :D

It is much cooler as a hand held aparatis. Now you can go rob a bank with it. It would be very difficult to do so while lugging around that large peice of wood that you used to have everything straped to :P

By laser guidance, I meant that the laser provides a guide for the positioning of the launcher when aiming.

Ignition comes from the battery powered BBQ igniter strapped to the rear of the stock. You can kinda see it directly below the pressure gauge.

Wow, I must say, that looks way better now, I love it. Well done. How accurate is it with the laser guidance to aid you though?

With darts it is very accurate to about 100 feet or so. My normal shooting distance is about 20 feet, and at this point, the ammo hits with deadly accuracy.

Frank, the spark gap is created by a concept that I thought of and posted on the forums about a month ago, and has since been used a few times. It uses an insulted wire epoxied into a threaded schrader valve.

That looks sweet, do you actually fire it from the shoulder? It looks uncomfortable whith all those ball valves. And also, It's nice to hear some good music once in a while :twisted: :headbang: :angryfire:

I usually fire it from my waist, and it is quite comfortable. The first time I fired it, I didn't use hearing protection, and that was a big mistake. From now on, I do.

Its nice to see some people here with a good taste in music. 8)
