This time, I added a different handle and attached it differently. I also used a dowel rod for the stock and a cpvc tee to pull back on. This blaster is not finished yet though. It needs many more coats of paint on the red and black on the tee and barrel. The barrel may be wrapped in electrical tape though and the wood handle will also be stained.
Overall, I really like this snapbow and everything new that I tried on it. Also, decided to post this as an unfinished project because I will not be able to work on nerf for a week or so. Please leave your thoughts in the comments.
