18 August 2010 - 10:22 AMI'm guessing you don't realize that spec ops already sells/sold extension kits for the round paintball t8/t9 mags, and the original poster's asking for the same deal, but for first strike (ie a d shaped extension tube). So it would definitely 'be worth selling'.You could, but you would have to gut the whole magazine. You'd need to buy a new spring, cut the bottom of the magazine, then build the bottom half with a lathe, or whatever it is you'd use (I'm no expert on the terms of this stuff). Then weld the two pieces together, and then make sure it fits.
Sure, they could sell fast, but for the effort you'd have to put in for one, I don't think it'd be worth selling.
You need to dremel the front lip of the old mags so they fit into the fs barrel, plenty of info about this on the TA forums.how do u make the mods to work with fs barrel
Per B-Dazl on the thread that I started a few weeks ago, the Spec Ops ext mags do not work for FS rounds.

That is a pretty good concept....... The big problem is that "TURN" where it goes into the breach. This is something that HAS been discussed at length around here. I personally would LOVE to run a magazine with FS and a Longbow with FS, it would be AWESOME!!
By the way, the 17 rd EXT mags we make, DO NOT work with First Strike........... just FYI
Thanks for the HU. I have thought about it more, and may have solved the turn issue, I thought of a re-design of both the mag and the receiver:
Have the mag do the "turn", that is instead of a straight piece of pipe, have it bent 90 degrees, at a relatively long curve, kinda like a :J:. Then the receiver would be a vertical "drop in", instead of a horizontal slide.
Edit: BTW, if this does come to fruition, I want the first demo!
05 August 2010 - 01:46 PMThe main reason 'most' real firearms don't have magazines that load front to back is because the pointy tip of rifle rounds could hit the primer at the back of the cartridge in front of it, triggering the bullet=baaad :tup:Round headed bullets, rimfire bullets, and shotgun shells which don't have this risk are/were often used with a tubular magazine stacked front to back.But it is true such a design would be difficult for first strikes, since they stack into each other (because the back fin is hollow).I'm a bit skeptical that the OP truly has a feasible design.. :/If it was possible, it would have to be a weird and complex design - there's a reason real firearms have magazines that don't load the rounds from front to back. They must be loaded next to each other, whether it be up and down or side to side. If you wanted a high cap magazine, my only thought would be to make it like one half of a Beta magazine - a drum that feeds into the side of the breech with a spring pushing the rounds. Probably another complex design though.
I have the design in my head, and below is a very rough draft, obviously this would need some work. But you get the concept.
The view is Top-down, and shows the FS rounds stacked sideways in the Longbow mag (just as in the regular mag). The complicated part will be the "turn" to rotate the round so that is points out to the front when loaded in to the barrel. There is very little modding needed to the actual Longbow Mag (just make it a little wider on one axis, and narrower on the other, that way the rounds stay oriented correctly.) The major headache is the receiver, which turns the round. It could be that in order to rotate it, the mag ends up sticking further out to the side of the marker, that I'm cool with.
Come to think of it - that would work for any marker, as long as it's modded to receive the rounds.

29 July 2010 - 11:02 AMDo you have it working or just an idea?
Do the SpecOps extensions work with FirstStrike, they seem a little more feasible than longbow...although there may be a "bolt action" mod idea there with the longbow that might work.
It's just an idea at this point. I don't have it working yet, I think the extensions would work, but I was thinking of the longbow because you can have a 3-point platform to shoot from with the placement of the magazine. I see the SO mag extension makes it too much like the T4 - just way too long for use with a bipod.
I was going to go to a machine shop with some rough dimensions and an existing Longbow mag & receiver to see how much $ it would cost. I wanted to kick it by the SO crew first to see if it could be possible (outside of the mod to the T9 slide)
12 April 2010 - 09:01 AMhahaha weary my bad. Yea i looked up some cams you can mount on weaver rails.. pretty expensive... Maybe one day. That would be awsome.
Couple of guys on my team got some at Sam's for $40. Not the best quality, but they work. Might be something to check out.
Do you have a link for it? I have been trying to find it for quite some time and have had no success.
