Longbow mag question

Is anyone here still making the longbow 20 rd stick mags and/or adapters for the Tac One? I'm interested in putting one together with pieces parts and this seems to be the hardest thing to find. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mods, if this needs to be in the Airsmiths on MCB page, feel free to move me. I wasn't sure which one this would fall under.

I did this on the cheap...

So I have a Tac One and I don't like hoppers and longbow mags cost a lot...so I decided I was going to try something.

Someone local was selling a Rap4 P68 pistol with a few mags so I asked him to part one.

This was my Idea.


It looked like it might fit so I started cutting!


A short time later I was done


And it fit! Quite nicely too!



This is what I see from the back.


Then I went to test it...and the macro fitting on the bike grip Blew!


After I changed my pants I experimented with a few different ways to route the air source...and finally I have half settled on what was originally my vision in the first place. I mounted a 3.5oz strait up to the VA...however the burst disk would not clear the trigger frame so I had to use an ASA extension. It works...but it is not exactly ideal, the extension I have is about an inch and a half long and makes the 3.5 hang a bit low...it will do for now until I come up with a better solution.



Tested this out with Reballs...but they didn't want to feed very well. Hoping its just the Reballs...

Still to do:
-Drill a hole in the spring feed for a side feed port!
-Try not to sell the whole dam thing...
-Anno? (After a lot of other bills are paid)


And as a bonus...I discovered enough other spare parts to build a second mag!

Well done sir! Did you have to mod the Tac one body in any way or does that mag snap into the pic rails?

If anyone else can add any more info, I would be greatful. I like the modded mags, especially the price. I wouldn't mind finding some original longbow mags, or even a suitable current production variant. Let me know what's floating around.

the way i cut it it slides perfectly over the rails. If you are smarter than me you could save the cross pins and 'c' washers from the mag and reinstall them once the mag is on so it doesnt move forward or backwards.

i did not have to touch the tac one body in any way for this.

i have since returned to my feedneck and a stickfeed.

if you want this one i am sure we could work something out.

Could anyone get me the OD on a longbow mag on the part that actually slides into the adapter? A couple of close up pictures of the same piece would be lovely as well. Going to try and have some of these made so I was curious about what sizes I needed to be striving for. Thanks again!

I'm not going to be producing these as I don't have the means to do so. I am just trying to figure out if it can be done and what it would take to make them at this point. If I can make them then I will gladly share how it was done, but at this point I am only brainstorming a way to make cheaper mags.

Which barrel, the one in the first pic is a brass palmers barrel, modified for freak inserts and with a new brass collar added for strength.

the second barrel in the last picture is a Dye twist lock barrel.
