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 use Araldite for permanate fixtures, or Bisonite, which is insansly strong. Once you glued something with that stuff, it ain't coming off.
I've tried that before (for a clipped BBB) and it does hold pretty well.
I use a large mixture of super and hot glue. I use the super glue first, and then the hot glue. it holds very strong.
As for Araldite and Bisonite, I'm not sure where you can get them. Although I havn't seen Bisonite around for a while, I did find somewhere selling it when I Googled it though. I remeber reading on the packet that 1cm³ of Bisoite can hold something like 30 stone (420 pounds) I don't know if thats true or not but it's pretty insane even if it's half that. Although dunno how pointful it is really as the stuff you bond together with it will break before the glue itself does.
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.
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...
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.
But are there any Nerfers from the UK? Does anyone know any? Are you one? I personaly live near York, and i'll soon be going to uni, I was also wondering if they're any campus's that have Nerf wars too? Theres only a few people that Nerf in my town all of which are my friends, and only know about Nerf becuase of one person that stumbled accross double shots when he was in Spain... so I was asking mainly out of intrest and if there are any wars over here I could play.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Or the FireFly because you might be able the get all of the SM750 inside the body of it, and the bottom bity thing (the bit from the bottom of the grip to near the back of the gun) would make an awsome place to put the pump. That way you'd have a fast ROF shot and a long range shot. I was thinking of doing the same thing myself with a modded supersoaker.
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 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".
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...
But I mostly use the rockets to fire from modded super soakers (Flash Flood) they fit perfectly onto some large copper pipe I found in the shed, and with a smaller barrel inside I can fire stephans too. I'd say the Rocket gets 50-60ft due the large air delievery of modded super soakers, which is pretty good. Except don't expect to hit anything with it... (it takes about 45 pumps per shot though, so useless in a war, cept maybe with a side arm)
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.
It says on the website that it uses micros, although I do see what you mean and would of beileved you if I hadn't looked at the site itself:
It might just be the picture, but it looks like that thing fires megas and has no air restrictors. If that's the case, then I know why it's cheaper than a normal NF.
Line up the red light beam in your target and ready, aim, fire! Includes 3 micro darts and target with stand.
Did anyone else notice the review at the bottom?
So, surely if was just a re-colour of the orignal Nitefinder then it would be more powerful than this guy claims? Althoungh he could have got a defunked one...
This is a bad gun, no power behind it.
This is the worst gun in my arsenal.
The older Nite Finder is better because it shoots harder and more accurate.
This is a good gun for mothers who don't want their kids to get hurt.
You can't get hurt by this gun because it is so weak.
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...
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..
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.
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.
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...?
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,
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.
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.
20 isn't alot really, sn1per, although I find stock darts are ALOT easier to find.
I've also figured that filling it up with hotglue won't work becuase the tanks charge up and realase sepparatly. So filling it with hot glue would work for a bit, but the tank may break... unless theres separte over pressure valves on each of the tanks, which I very much dout.
*is still in need of help*
