Re: Inverted polispast 110 camo

By “molds” do you mean the gun is not a carbon wrap on wood? What is the core made of?
I am really interested in how you did this!! I am new to carbon fiber and the learning curve is steep! ��

Re: Inverted polispast 110 camo

Nice work, how do you finish off the carbon fiber at the end of the muzzle. I like your design. I have made one polyplst so far and anticipating another. I found the gun was sooooooo smooth! No jerk...

Re: Butt Pad Ideas... mold rubber?

My favorite is 3/8 gasket rubber.
Try MacMasterCarr.com they have everything. For molding muzzles or butt pads, I really like Apoxie Sculpt ( Amazon)

Re: SlipTip Spectra Holders

Re: Pre Preg Carbon Wrap

Spearq8, if you don't mind me asking, where did you get the vacuum tubes you are referring to. That's a great idea!

Re: Pre Preg Carbon Wrap

Thanks all for the great advice. It was "Out of Autoclave", I was looking at. Very good video on You Tube by Easy Composites from U.K. showing Pre-Preg techniques.

Re: Pre Preg Carbon Wrap

Thanks, that's great advice. I won't be using shrink wrap again. I know where I made my mistake on the vacuum bag. I have heard of the inverted sock method before. I think I will try that on the next...

Re: Over ballast a gun

I have made "sinkers" before out of Jatoba. If you have it on your float line as I do with all my guns, then it's not a huge deal. I prefer the gun to be positive without the shaft and negative with....

Re: Opinion: which handle for which gun?

I have made both and personally like the hybrid with a mid handle. The hybrid seems to be more maneuverable and the mid handle balances well. However I don't necessarily extend the trigger mechanism...

Re: longest roller on a carbon body?

I made a double roller gun with aluminum barrel that was 5ft long. The gun was over 6 ft. The power was intense, two 5/8 bands and it was accurate. The problem was the distance from the butt of the...
