Thats a pretty f**king cool paintjob. How did you do it?
This is my first paintjob, and I think I did fairly well.
This is my first post in this topic, and I'd just thought I'd share some of my friends paintjobs (I can never be arsed to paint guns, just mod them. Plus, I'm rubbish at painting).
I think the NF is the best by far out of them all, but the Fireflys pretty cool too. As for mods;
*Longshot - intergrated side arm, AR's removed, NF spring and a locked stock.
*Firefly - AR's removed
*Brown NF - AR's removed, very nice spring replacement (bought modded from ebay..)
*Gray/Black/Red/Green NF - AR's removed, laser sight partical removed, half a gate bolt spring replacement and banding
EDIT: I've just noticed the darts in the NF XD need to take them out before the get miss-shaped.
Now when comparing it to a LS I think it's not going to have as much potential, simply because it's smaller and has a sliding cocker (haha, ahem..).
But, when you look at it, the internals of a LS in a way are quite close to fitting inside the shell of the recon. If you cut off the entire frount barrel, and the stock, the Recon pistol and the remains of your LS would be similar lenghts. IMO. So, I dicided to make a picture to see if I could guess anything else (I know it's already been done, but not with the internals of an LS or with my sexy red lines).
Now, the last picture of the internals is defantly not the right scale (it's also inverted, for those of you who hadn't noticed) compared to the other ones. But, as you can see, even if the internals of the LS could be cut down in a similar way, you wouldn't be able to cock it, becuase the cocking bit of the LS is right at the back, so the Recon must have a very different way of cocking. Maybe the plunger rod has a catch on it, like most other spring guns (the most obvious example being the NF).
Most people have touch on one or more of three things about the Recon:
- It's not gonna be as good as the LS.
- It's a clipped pistol "ZOMG!!1".
- It looks cool.
I for one agree with all of them. Although, all of you that said anything about performance compared it to the LS. Maybe if we compare it to a different gun. One more in terms of size (of the functioning body of the Recon, not the extras) then, I think it's gonna be pretty f**king cool.
Hum, i've just said what everone else has said, nevermind...
I know, I know, it's been asked before, but! Before you shoot me down saying it all depends on your stefans; I have alot of different sizes of them (5 maybe) some are very hard to push into Alimunium, Stock barrels and Copper, others are too slim for anthing other than NF barrels. So asuming I have some stefans that will fit either pipe/tube which would be better? And why?
Thanks in advance.
I've just had a quick troll though this topic (I'd only read the first two pages before) and I havn't seen much about the intergration rail? Any chance of photos of a gun mounted to it? Or are you planning to make something specific? Or am I a dumbass and missed something here?
Good luck. You probably going to need it. If CS dosn't make them and you make a good prototype, then put me on your waiting list.
Me and Trojan Nerf will be making them when we finish our first batch for ourselves. We will have 3 guys working in assembly line fashion at a machine shop, so, as soon as supplies are bought, we will be fine, I can estimate 80 dollars if I did the math right.
I think my old secondary (high) school had something similar to this that the used for cutting wood, although I don't really have a clue. Does that basicly mean that with one of these CNC Routers you can (in layman's terms) put in a sheet of polycarbonate and it would cut out all the parts and drill all the holes and make it almost ready for assembly (apart from cutting of the rods for the stock, barrel, plunger tube and anything else not made from polycarbonate). At a comletely random guess this would cut the time to make one down by like 2/3's? Or (it's much more likely that) I'm just talking out talking out of my arse?
I'm currently doing research into CNC Routers, which are much more affordable ($3,000 to $6,000 for the models I'm looking at) and will be safer to use with polycarbonate than laser cutting systems would.
I should be able to make more of these some time in the next 6 months. Just have to save up for the tool and get it setup.
Dude, you hate everything.
YAY, I hate rap, you got the right idea there.
They do. Although there very first album is pretty damn good. Ironicly there support (when I saw them) was better. But of course, it was Thursday. =D
I do believe in one thing...MCR sucks live.
I'm not liking the the whole genre focused thing here.
Anyone got a Last.fm account?
I scrobble mainly what I listen to on my iPod but I havn't recently because my laptop is dead.
Wahey! Yup. By their new stuff I'm guessing you mean A City by The Light Divided, in which case i'd have to agree with you, from what I've heard it's okay, but not to great. Autobiography of a Nation is pretty awesome, I love the simple punch bass line at the start. As for Ian Curtis, I didn't recognise the title so I looked to see if I have it on CD or on my iPod and after a quick look on wiki I don't have anything from Waiting. Just the EP's and full lengths after. I will have to d/l a few songs and get the album if I like 'em enough.
Wisey!, good on you, Thursday's a great band. Not a big fan of their new stuff, it's not really what I'd expect from Thursday. I can't stop listening to Ian Curtis and Autobiography of a Nation, two of my favorite songs.
Linkin Park's only good music was some off Meteora(?) and everything before that. Collision Course sent them downhill.
You seen them live? If you havn't, they're one of the best live bands I've ever seen. My vocabulary isn't good enough to discribe just how aweomse Jet Black New Year is live. I've seen them twice but have yet to see them headline... but I will, at some point...
As for Linkin Park, I'd have to agree with you aswell. Collision Course sucks..
My parents don't mind me nerfing, They just think I have TOO MANY nerf guns. I have like 15. I am trying to convince them to let me buy more
I'm in the same boat. Not just with my perants, but some of my friends too and my girlfriend, which kinda sucks. My Mum dosn't mind it, but thinks it's a waste of money, and my Dad thinks it's a fun idea and thought my PowerClip was awesome.
Quite a few of my friends enjoy Nerf wars, but I've only got one friend (who's currently trying to get his account validated...) that mods guns like I do. Also, only 2 or 3 of my friends pay for guns, they just expect to use them... Although they said they'd pay for darts.
I only Nerf with my friends in mainly my garden (I have a pretty big garden) and some of my friends gardens, but as far I as know there isn't anyone else in the UK that Nerf's... well, not that I've seen anyway. Over here the only common guns are Mav's and NF's. So there isn't any wars that people go to...
In a war, I once got two headshots in a row with a PowerClip at range. Still with 8 darts remaning.
Also, sometimes me and my friend sit about 30-40ft from each other outside, with all the guns we own loaded, shared out equally and scattard around us. And then just shoot each other for the heck of it (this is usaly to celbrate a good day of modding/fixing or we count how many shots we get on each other (this mainly becuase this is a bit different from your average 1v1). It's fun. But quite painful when your friend has a modded BBB... 30-40ft may not be far, but this makes it; more fun, more painful, and so that we can still hit other with stock/crap guns. We don't stop till we can reach any darts from our sitting possitions.
Hahaha! Well that certianly wasn't intended (I ment party for anyone who doesn't know). Although I did think of the Infinite Shindig, I didn't think of him being unvailed to scientists XD where on earth did that come from?
Okay, who else pictured a mini version of The Infinite Shindig being unveiled to a group of scientists when you read that?
My plans basicly involve not failing A level's (College)(urgh.. revsion) and having fun with friends... if it's at all possible to do both... so pretty much the same as last year. Oh yeah! And to cut my hair and learn to drive...
As for the arcade machine, I have a feeling I'm missing something here. Are you talking retro stlye with one game or with like a console in it or something? Seems a strange thing to build... Although cheaper in the long run i guess XD The only arcade games I like are prolly Time Crisis and House of the Dead, but there not really proper retro arcade games. (sorry i'm babling agian)
Too right Piney. Although I think they're just trying to sound badass infront of everyone else; I think "New years is shit" roughly translates to: "i'm 15 and have never gone to a party/got drunk in my life so i'm going try sound like this is my choice and not that i'm just a lameass loser". Personaly I'm t total/striaght edge whatever you wanna call it. I've done the whole house partys and getting drunk. House parties are fun, although getting drunk ain't to great IMO, watching other people fall about though, IS.
You ungrateful little kids.
You ought to be thankful you have another year to live.
There is only one thing to be said; hahahahaa!! Assfarts... (well, and everything else)
I went to bed at 11:30. I say fuck New Year's if you don't have your girl to celebrate it with.
Awwwwww. Someone got dumped.
Groove:...........seriously, WTF. Don't tell me you've been drinking and ranting.
Hmmm. I wonder if anyone saw the piece of confetti saying "assfarts".
I'll close with the best quote from this thread:
The two slots, which are opposite but parallel to each other, are on the edge of the pump head. When the pump goes forward, the O-ring is forced into the back of its groove by friction, which creates a seal. Then the pump is pulled out, that same friction causes the O-ring to be moved to the front of its groove. This uncovers a hole in the back that allows air to travel under the O-ring and through the twin slots into the pump chamber. That's why it's important to keep them free of glue or other blocking agents.
Thanks for clearing that up for me SHA, thats what I ment by "air intake valve", I just didn't know where it was. I didn't realise it was part of the plunger head.
So, wait...the springy things do nothing?
The springs/wires that are inside or on the outside of pipes are there to stop the pipes from bending, for example, if you bent the pipe at a right angle the pipe would propbably close up and let little to no air though. They are also there to protect them from breaking. This is mainly for when the gun is assabled at a factory, so they can be assambled more quickly without the risk of pipe damage. They're mainly at places where the pipe could bend the most, or be most likely damaged.
The Tommy Twenty is a pretty bad gun as far as i've read (most Nerfers here think it sucks) And my experiance with electric guns is always this: they suck.
I know you were thinking though, it's fully automatic, it's got a large ammo capacity and you don't ever have to pump or anything. But, there is very little you can do to mod it... as far as I know all you can do is wrap elastic bands around the wheels that "throw" the darts.
If I were you, I'd spend my money elsewere.
But if you like the gun i'd say it's probably quite fun, if a little pants. Check out FireBox.com they have to Tommy Twenty on there somewhere, and have customer videos (and sometimes there own videos) of products they sell.
I am pretty happy with my V Smile. Dance'n Learn is a step above DDR and Disney Princess:The Crystal Ball Adventure is one of the best platformers I have ever played. Above all that when I'm done playing I really feel like I have learned something.
I believe the term is "LOL!". Haha, seriuously though, the V Smile is an amazing pice of kit.
I somehow knew that the 360 would get the most votes. Well, so far anyway...
So, you're bored and inside, with nothing to do, no guns to mod (or in my case break atm).
To cure you're boredum now and over the holidays, which one would you rather hook up to your TV?
My personal choice would be a PS3 because they look pretty cool (should be getting the 60GB one for Xmas ^^) and are technical better in every way to all the other consoles atm. You can even install other OS's on it... and use most USB devices and bluetooth headsets/stuff.
Also, new GTA and UT next year for it. F**king awesome.
PS: If anyone cares UT3 will be the first console game to feature full blown mods, like a PC (the only downside to this is that you need 8GB's of HDD to 'install' it on). The PC modding/editing package acctualy has a "Export to PS3" button and will technical allow entire new games to be with it. You could even make BioShock or Gears of War for PS3 if you had the technical expertise and a few years to spare. Whereas, the Xbox 360 version won't have any of this, AND you'll still have to pay for Live becuase Micrsoft suck major balls.
From what I hear a lot of developers are having problems developing games for games for it and stuff like that. The Wii is fun and innovative, the 360 has the best games, and the PS3 has a shit ton of sweet processors and gear like that. I could blabber on for a while longer, but I think you get my point.
Hum, I havn't heard anything about that myself (devopers having problems), but I do know one small issue, and that is, games like NFS: Carbon and FEAR, that are on both the 360 and PS3, look better on the 360 because production isn't in full swing for the PS3 yet. Thats the ONLY thing I don't like about the PS3 the launch titles are kinda pants, but then agian, so were the PS2 ones.
not to mention it has LIVE (which is, undoubtedly, the best out of all the Next-Gen systems).
I have used LIVE at a friends house, and it's pretty well thought out and everything. But the PS3 has pretty much the same deal (friends lists, servers etc etc) as LIVE, but for, well, free.
This is stupider than asking what nerf gun is the best
Okay, I've changed the sub title now, to which do you prefer. Happy? Probably not, but okay...
I'm just intrested to know what people think of the consoles and which they would go for.
EDIT: The laptop i'm using now was £1,500 new. Thats about $3000. Although it's about 3-4 years old now. My point is, I could build/buy a gaming PC i'm happy with for around £1000. It would run pretty much every game out atm with graphics on full without lag, I've looked into this. I've already looked into which to get (PS3, 360 or PC in my case) and i've chosen PS3. I just wanted to know what other people thought.
Any spec, as well as some specficly lower spec/older games as i'm stuck with a Pentium 3 desktop for the next few weeks/months.
The reason I ask is simply because I can't think of any, and some of you guys will know your stuff about games.
I already have. It's rather fun, which is why I joined this forum.
How about nerfing? Give that a try sometime.
Thanks for the input so far. Not too keen on MMORPG's, but I may give Astiona a try some time anyway. Jump 'n' Bump is kinda odd, haha, intresting though. Thanks!
Keep 'em coming guys!
Ahh, okay. From what I can find (on Google etc.) World Party and Armogeddon are similar. I'm guessing the only differences are fort mode (when you make a team, you pick a fort for that team, then if you play forts mode, it puts a fort from each of the two teams next to each other. so like a pirate ship and a castle) and some other strange modes. As well as two player missions (havn't played them in a while, but ones a city scape that you have to dig down into to hide from an armagedden attack ever two turns, last team alive wins).
I've actually never played World Party, so I don't know about that one. For all I know World Party could be more updated than Armageddon. I always thought World Party was like a console version of Armageddon. Though a quick look on Amazon showed it's for computer as well.
I think Armageddon just has more weapons, missions, and stuff like that than Worms 2. It's just like a step up from 2.
I didn't like the 3D one, I thought it was too complicated and harder to control. That's a major drawback for me because one of my favorite things about the series is the simplicity. It's real easy to learn to play, and matches are fun and quick.
Yeah, theres console versions of most of them. They tend to suck; less worms per team, less smoth graphics, less weapons, less options to change etc. etc.
The 3D ones were okay... but kinda lost the whole meaning of Worms. I have Worms 3D for the PS2, played it for like the week or two after I got it, havn't touched it since.
Yeah, once I get a new PC, I'll defantly be playing UT it's an ace game (I have GOTYE and 2004, I preffer 2004 though, people online are easier....).
I haven't played many PC games, but one I think was pretty cool is Unreal Tournament 2004. It's kind of old but it is still pretty fun. I usually play Xbox 360, but I still need to get live (I used to have it).
Haha! VACC, I love you. Yeah, theres no chance in the deepest darkest deapths of hot hell that i'm going to play WoW. Or infact anything you have to acctualy deadicate
Wait what was that? Your vagina made you quit WoW?
Someone's just a little pissy because they don't have an Effeminate flying mount like I do.
You're right. I hate my girlfriend and real job. I'm just gonna sit in my parents' basement, eat cheetos and whine about my acne over teamspeak....that's working out sweet for you, right?
Worms is awesome! Thanks for reminding me about them, haven't played in ages. I have Worms, Worms 2, Worms World Party and Worms 3D (oh and Worms Pinball, which is the best pinball game EVER). I have been wanting Armageddon for ages, how does it differ from 2 and World Party?
I'm not sure what genre it falls under, but the Worms games (Worms, Worms 2, Worms Armageddon, etc) are a HUGE amount of fun.
Yes! I was just about to say that. Get Worms Armageddon. It's by far the best, in my opinion. They're totally non-serious games that are way fun to play with friends, or just with the computers.
Dear earth, I can't tell what parts of this are sarcasm and what parts arn't.
Ummm... yeah why the fuck would I want to do anything else right now?
I'm thinking about dropping nerf for the world. Why drive 45 minutes for an event when I can just walk to my computer?
At least my guild recognizes what I have contributed unlike the nic!
Thanks to everyone who has replied. I'm going to check out all of the games you've mentioned, albeit slowly. And I'll probably get back to you (if it is really slowly, then via PM...).
EDIT: Cut down on quote size.
Things to note:
* Walmart bag - I live in England, we don't have Walmart over here we have ASDA. My Longshot came wraped in Walmart bag, so I stuck it to my wall.
* The Belt Trafic sticker is cool.
* The Fleetwood Mac CD isn't mine.
* However, the Versus the Mirror and early Atreyu CD's underneath it, are.
* My typeing has no emotion whatsoever. "LOL!!".
* There are 15 guns (ALL working !!!) under my desk in the last piture. Although you can only see about 10. A prize goes to whoever can find at least 10.
PS: Someone PM me if the pictures are far too big, as it fits on my screen. - Thanks bobafan
I'd use the same thread, and if you need to change the name of it you can (I know you can, I just can't remeber how, I think you just edit the first post...).
I apologize for my ignorance, but should I keep using this thread for further questions and updates relating to this mod, or should I create a new thread?
This mod is going to be very intresting, that is of course IF you manage to pull it off. Acctualy, even if you don't pull it off, it will still be quite intresting. If you do, please post pics and videos =] What size battery(s) are you thinking of useing/going to use? I'm guessing too big to fit in the handle of the Mav itself...?
Taggers are also the only good stock dart (as far a Nerf (Hasbro) are consernd anyway). Streamlines arn't too bad either.
And sucktion cup ones are the worset by far. Well, they're okay in stock guns, and say an NF or Mav with just the AR's removed. But put them in anything more modded than that and the fish tail like crazy. Fro example: i have two Scouts, one has a Mav spring in it as well as the stock spring (and a stronger trigger spring) and the other is stock (Apart from both have had there AR's removed). The stock gets twice the range of the modded one with sucktion cup darts, dispite being less powerful. And of course the modded one beats it in every other way...
EDIT: Also, if you suck at making them (or can't be arse/find the stuff to make them) then check out ebay for Stefans, theres loads of good ones.
These are pretty much what CS and Piney were talking about. Mine are specificly for cutting plastic though, they're not marketed as wire cutters although I dout this makes any difference. They infact come from a Warhammer starter paint set (no, i'm not a nerd, Warhammer sucks, I had two sets when I was about 9... 9 years ago) and they are very good, suppriseingly.
Dremel's suck. Stay old skool.
Good pics, best write-up i've seen for the LS pistol. You could of course stick it (intergrate it to where the bipod would be) to your longshot like alot of people do, it's good for some defense when you're reloading.. My LS is waiting for something better to put on it so if you didn't want a trap, you could of course cut less off and leave the grip on:
What on earth did you use to cut it down? Seems to have made a bit of mess..
I second that. It's almost certian it'll break if you put a bigger spring in it... Good find. I have a couple of the twin packs from FireBox myself.
Make sure to reinforce the catch. It likes to break...A lot.
penguin, I'm loving your sig, it made me laugh quite alot. May I ask where it's from/did you think of it yourself?
Haiku's are easy,
But sometimes they don't make sense,
I used a Dremel but didn't care about appearance, I am lazy like that unless it will see play.
I like your minimalization, extremely clean and functional. I did have the idea to do that also but the bulkiness of the gun just makes it useless.
Thankyou. Yeah, it's a bit pointless because you can't, for example, fit it in your pocket as a "just in case" side arm like a Scout or maybe a minimized NF. But I figured it would aleast look a little better without all the extra LS barrel stuff. Plus I used the bit that attached the pistol to the LS to make a "silencer".
Unmodded the ammo holder/switch can be upright (normal barrel) or down to the left (secret barrel). When modded to have three barrels plastic is removed from the right hand side of the gun so that you can switch the switch to the right for the newly added right barrel. Swithing left would switch to the new left barrel rather than the secret one.
SO does the top barrel fire by itself and the bottom two at the same time? because i only see two ways to turn the barrel change thing.
Hope that helps!
Aww, I didn't know anyone had done this... I was going atempt it, and post it as my first write-up. I'm not sure why I thought no one had done it, it is pretty obvious once you've seen the inside of the SS1.
I love this gun! I am surprised that there aren't any other documentations of the tri-barrel. I think this 'ought to help out a lot of people that are confused about the mod.
One of the photos don't seem to be working for me. The one under the step "Then take a drill and drill these holes out." is missing. Not sure if I'm the only one, though.
Yeah, that image isn't showing for me either.
You're right frost. I think I might just do it anyway.
EDIT: Also, Wisey, there's nothing wrong with multiple write-ups for the same mod. Go for it, maybe it'll show some alternate techniques than what has been done already.
I've come up with quite a few ways of sticking them on. When I eventualy get round to it I'll do a write up for it. I'm thinking of using some plastic (like from a broken CD or jewel case) to make the surfact area of the barrel switch big enough to simply glue three barrels striaght to it. Or possibly rReally Really Effeminateating what fa24 did so well with e-tape and barrel posts, only with three barrels...
PLEASE! If you do this, show how to glue the barrels on, and how much space to remove on the inner shell. Hopefully a noob doesn't fall into my predicament, but you doing that would prevent such an event.
Also, does anyone have a spring they could recommend for this gun?
Use elastic bands or find one yourself, I don't think anyone has posted a particular spring. I know fa24 won't have done because he just buys in bulk. Oh! Off the top of my head a Mav spring might fit in there, not 100% sure though, it's been awhile since i've looked inside.
20 isn't alot really, sn1per, although I find stock darts are ALOT easier to find.
So nice infact, that thanks to it (and someone posting in this topic from a bit back) that I've just purchased two off ebay ($5 + $35 shipping (I live in the UK, it is about £20 in total, therefore £10 for each SS)).
I'm going to do this mod to one (that is, if I can find a spring... but I'll do the rest), and something sligtly different to the other one.
I use too many brackets...
Yeah, I thought that was the coolest part, the laser sight itself (as i'm sure many other people are going to say...) is quite useless. BUT I may use the tutorial on how to put a external switch onto a hold button laser pen you linked to, and replace the "laser" on an NF with it that you linked to. Thanks =]
The one thing I will say for this is that it's modular. Eventually, I'd like to cannibalize the "night time green light rail attachment" accessory simply for it's rail, and affix a high-powered flashlight onto it, and then fit it with a 9V terminal so that it can utilize the same switch. That's my favorite part anyways.
I once got a modded NF from ebay, from the US, with a industrial spring in it. Now weather it is a Ace #49 spring, I could not tell you. But since most people use that spring in NF's I can only asume it is. And that thing has been fired blank, tossed around, droped, sprayed, sprayed agian (I could go on...) and is now about 2 years old, and is as it was new. So I'd just do it eitherway.
