i'm not sure I understand what you mean.

I had the same issue at times with the Mouse Musket when using a blowgun trigger. A better fit on the replacement piston and a layer of grease fixed the problem.

As for aesthetics, Pink.. are you serious? Flat black or fluorescent orange would be my suggestions.


yea, I replied to your message a couple of days ago, but i'm not sure if you got it.

And yes, I did choose pink. The whole thing is going to be black with fluorescent pink accents. Once I get it to a point where I think it is worthy I will make a new thread showcasing just the finished product.

Also, did some more testing at lower pressure (60psi) and shot an un-modified nerf mini vortex that I have never used before and it destroyed it. It completely ripped out the plastic core and fins. I also shot a golf ball at about a 30 degree angle. It was still climbing when we lost sight of it :) . Although it seemed to have some sort of "hop-up" to it, which i thought was weird and cool. This weekend I'm going to a friends house who owns a fair bit of land and lives on a one mile stretch of dead end road. so hopefully I'll be able to do some video and record some distances.

What I mean is that now it's operating smoothly and finalized, we want to see some videos of stuff being destroyed. :wink:

I would too, but I don't really have anything to destroy. and also I think I'm different than a lot of the guys on here, because I prefer range over sheer destruction. But, if I find something that I can destroy, and I have a camera at the time I'll at least take pics, if not video.
