#320095 Dartsmithing Tips Archive

Posted by Super0dp on 07 August 2012 - 04:26 PM in Darts and Barrels

Does anyone know we're to get red foam or silicone tips? I saw sgnerf's darts and I'm looking for the tips he uses.



#320131 Nerf Elite Retaliator problems, reviews and mods

Posted by Super0dp on 08 August 2012 - 07:17 AM in General Nerf

Ok so I have been having some problems with my retaliator lately, I bought a hail-fire and was messing with the 6 round clips and tried to fit it into my retaliator, but it wouldn't budge. I tried pulling the clip release to get it in but that didn't work. Only the original 6 round clips will fit into the retaliator. Has anyone else had this problem? Don't forget to post pictures and mods of your personal retaliator. pictures and mods go in the pictures and mods thread, not here.

#320204 Holsters

Posted by Super0dp on 09 August 2012 - 06:54 AM in General Nerf

[
, leather sounds a bit over the top and expensive in my opinion, but will look into your other suggestions,.
[/quote]

I buy a pack of random leather strips from hobby lobby and weave my own holster, the bag of strips has enough for like 3 maverick sized guns and only costs 5 bucks. It's strong, flexible and it's fun to make.





The quote thing messed up, I'm still learning.



#320211 Nerf Elite Retaliator problems, reviews and mods

Posted by Super0dp on 09 August 2012 - 10:28 AM in General Nerf

its factory stock.i shaved down the sides of the elite clip and now it fits with drop clip. i guess the elite 6 round clips are too wide for the retaliator. but the 6 round clip works with the rampage.



#320282 Holsters

Posted by Super0dp on 10 August 2012 - 08:41 AM in General Nerf

Yep, and I've improved on the design. It works well enough I feel that it is very useful even though we all use hoppers and such.

Also, just posted a write up.



magnetic holsters are fine in all but for even cheeper you can use heat-bent pvc, just heat up a pot of water to a boil (it has to be a huge pot of water, atleast 8 in deep), cover the front shell of your blaster in silicone grease, dip the pvc in the water and form the pvc to the blaster. when its formed, dip the pvc, blaster and all into ice water. BOOM instant holster. you can drill holes into it and mount it however you like. i got this idea from a friend.

im freakin tired of the quote system messing up!



#320407 Nerf Maverick

Posted by Super0dp on 13 August 2012 - 12:03 PM in Modifications

Over the weekend, a few friends and I bought some Nerf guns while we were out of town.

I already have a few at home, so I thought that I would buy a cheapo just to pass the time. It would make a fun secondary, after my Raider or Retaliator.
I bought a Maverick, and have been modding it. Here is what I have done:
- did the Russian roulette mod
- removed air restrictors
- increased the air seal on the plunger tube with teflon tape
- added spring compression by adding 4 pennies to the back (also reinforced that area with hot glue)
- added a trigger spring to improve the rotation mechanism
- added foam in parts of the gun to lower rattling noise
- removed dead space from the barrel's entrance using hot glue and straws
- added a spring to the front assembly of the barrel to improve the air seal there

What else can I do? What kind of spring should I get?
Should I just get the Maverick spring on Orange Mod Works? I was going to buy a mod kit for my Raider there soon.

I'd like to get some PETG tubing to improve the seal inside the barrels, but I have no idea where to buy any. Replacing the barrels with PVC seems like too much work. I'd rather just insert PETG.



I made a cool maverick with a rear loading mod and brass barrels. Just get some brass and shove them down there. Then use craft foam to improve the seal to the turret



#320496 Screw Cap (a.k.a. Snap Cap) Dart Heads

#320943 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 24 August 2012 - 02:39 PM in General Nerf

Alright, I recently got a stampede and tore it apart for parts. I was messing with the motor and took it apart and found it was brushed. That means that there are carbon-metal brushes that contact the armature. (the spiny thingy in the center) these brushes wear out overtime and you will have to replace your motor. If you have done a voltage mod this happens a lot faster. Brushed motors generate a lot of heat so be careful. My suggestion is to find a similarly sized motor that is brushless, and replace you existing motor. Brushless motors spin a lot faster so mor stress would be put on the gears. Also they take a lot less voltage to go fast so you can save some money on batteries. Hope this helps!



#320944 Working Silencer

Posted by Super0dp on 24 August 2012 - 03:12 PM in Darts and Barrels

I have made a silencer on my co2 Titan, and a plugged Titan. I made a 14in cpvc barrell and cut holes going in a spiral along the last 4 inches. Silences it completely, adds a spin to the dart and increases range.



#321768 Screw Cap (a.k.a. Snap Cap) Dart Heads

Posted by Super0dp on 19 September 2012 - 08:09 AM in Darts and Barrels

thanks. Also I found a lead washer that fits perfectly inside the snap-cap and has no metal exposed. Because it is lead you have to paint it or seal it. With the finished head: you can push down really hard when putting the head on and it will sink and seat into the foam better. just throwing some ideas i tested out there.

#321769 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by Super0dp on 19 September 2012 - 08:14 AM in Modifications

Just found something awesome. The best PETG i found was sold by Fa24 and his website. he also has amazing glue dome weights and foam. Amazon is the best place i found that you can get brass from. The price ranges from 5 dollars to 12 dollars for 3 feet of a size. 9/16 is a little on the high side and 17/32 is reasonably cheap. im not trying to endorse Fa24 or Amazon, im just throwing some info out there.

Edit: yea sorry for talking about amazon again even though its in the forum already. but the prices were not talked about and so that is a good piece of info.



#321836 Screw Cap (a.k.a. Snap Cap) Dart Heads

Posted by Super0dp on 21 September 2012 - 08:13 AM in Darts and Barrels

Maybe shooting your friends with toxic heavy metals is a slight step backwards? Not to mention that everyone pretty much gave up on these.... In April. When they were shown to break apart on impact. And possibly injure people. WITHOUT ALSO GIVING THEM LEAD POISONING.


I understand were your comming from but for a person (me)who is serious and cant make a slug, or a hot glue dome to save his life, it is a safe way to get accurate, well made darts and with a little experimentation I can find a safe alternitave to a washer. as for the breaking problem I tried silicon to seal the dart head and after several shots from a 4b at a brick wall the head did not break. This was my experiment and results. I was hoping to revive this dart because this is a great alternitave to slugs, hotglue domes and pre-formed dart heads. In no way was I trying to hurt anyone or piss anyone off. i hope you can understand that. As for the dart I found a way to prevent it from breaking: Use silicon to seal the head on the inside.



#322742 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 18 October 2012 - 11:16 AM in General Nerf

I found a motor for barricade/rayven/stockade blasters.The Tamiya plasma dash motor (The small one, Duh!) is a perfect fit with minimal trimming and is brushless. They are the kind of motors found in the Tamiya mini 4x4 things.



#322744 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 18 October 2012 - 11:42 AM in General Nerf

Holy shit, totally justified necro. Got a part number or a product link?


I dont have a part number but if you go to the Tamiya U.S. website you can find the mini 4x4 and the parts. I'm sure with 15 min of google searching you can find it. SGnerf at his website compares Nerf motors with this exact motor



#322821 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 20 October 2012 - 10:00 AM in General Nerf

Hamoidar has the right motor. Its the small black Tamyia plasma dash motor. For the mod I soldered the wires directly to the leads on the motor. They work really well and last a long time. Even with a voltage mod they will last and keep performing well. After several wars, battery changes and re-soldering they still work in my modified barricade.



#323311 problem with vortex blasters dropping mags?

Posted by Super0dp on 04 November 2012 - 07:34 PM in Modifications

In blasters such as the praxis and pryragon, there is a little nub that holds the trigger return spring on the trigger. That nub can occasionally catch on the clip-drop mechanism (it's right next to the trigger) and drop your clip.



#323384 Tee shirt launcher help.

Posted by Super0dp on 08 November 2012 - 09:58 AM in Off Topic

For Shiggles I made a tennis ball launcher out of 3 titan tanks. Hooked all three to a single pipe and made it front loading. Air compressor with a splitter to all three tanks and it shot tennis balls 150 feet flat. If you have the time and the resorces you could build one.

#323627 Paint: Were to buy and what kind

Posted by Super0dp on 16 November 2012 - 12:17 PM in General Nerf

I am trying to find paint for plastics. I know Krylon Fusion for plastics is the best but I cant find it. I looked at Walmart and only found White and several types of clear coat. Lowes dosent have any plastics paint and I tryed Home Depot but they dont have any. Maybe I didnt find any because I only asked the people there and they gave me a "WTF" look.

#324024 New nerf elite releases.

Posted by Super0dp on 30 November 2012 - 11:43 AM in General Nerf

So most of us know about the rampage, retaliator, and the Hailfire. The stockade blaster IS confirmed by nerf, yet I have not seen one. Recently nerfs Facebook page released a statement showing two new elite blasters,(the strongarm, and the stryfe). recently on youtubeland, bobolobo (link here ) showed a review of the stryfe, and pictures of the strongarm showed up on ebay. Has anybody actually seen the strongarm, or the stockade, or the newest addition, the rayven based elite blaster?


As you said, the stryfe is confirmed. PsykSG made a video on youtube about the RoughCut 2X4 which is realeased in malaysa. The firestrike and the Triad are confirmed by people in singapore and youtube. The strongarm was only spotted on Ebay but I suspect it will be on the list as well.



#324449 Nerf rougcut. Where?

Posted by Super0dp on 13 December 2012 - 05:30 PM in General Nerf

PsykSG made a video on it. He got it from a friend from Malaysia. I would expect it to come out in the U.S. in January 2013. Like all the other elite blasters it might come out early at Toys R Us or something



#324466 Nerf rougcut. Where?

Posted by Super0dp on 14 December 2012 - 09:50 AM in General Nerf

Going by the Retaliator/Rampage early finds... I would say March. I got my Retaliator in Early June, and the release was September. I just got a Rough Cut like a week ago, so by that logic (since no "official" date other than 2013 has been said) I would go with March. But that's just me.


Did you get it online or in a store? If you bought it localy then what store did you get it from?



#324559 Rough Cut AR/peg removal

Should I boil the barrels before trying to pry them open?



#324721 Hailfire Breakages

Posted by Super0dp on 24 December 2012 - 02:05 PM in General Nerf

No problems with mine. It's been through 3 wars and several HvZ games. Breakages happen. I would reinforce some of the holes in it with epoxy putty.

#325034 My personal pic

Posted by Super0dp on 03 January 2013 - 10:42 AM in Site Feedback

I've noticed since the switch to the new servers, that my personal pic is not saving properly. It was gone after the migration, and switched it out, and it stayed for about a day or two, then it was gone again, and now it won't take it anymore.


I have too. I just re-uploaded the pic and it stayed. I have also noticed significantly lower load times since the server change.



#325931 Question to all you modders

Posted by Super0dp on 27 January 2013 - 07:12 PM in General Nerf

I would like to see more airguns, and more clip-fed direct plunger blasters.

On a side note, I think there should be a full auto rife (much like the stampede) in the Elite line.



#325979 New BuzzBee Panther Pump

Posted by Super0dp on 28 January 2013 - 02:09 PM in General Nerf

I have had the same experience with an Airzone panther from TRU. You can remove a little deadspace by filling the empty cavity with hotglue.

Yes, yes I am



#326029 Question to all you modders

Stampede maybe?

And what Is this about a blackeye?



#326031 Log Home Help Foam questions

Posted by Super0dp on 29 January 2013 - 02:18 PM in Darts and Barrels

I would like to buy some log Home Help white FBR. I have a few questions about It though:

1. Is it moderatly heat resistant? (I.E. does it melt like crap foam)
2. What is the fit in PETG? (I am going to use it for an AT3K with 12" PETG barrels)
3. How dense is it? (Soft, Moderate, Hard)

To Admins:
Ryan's guide does not include Log Home Help foam.
If there is a similar thread about PETG I think this can slide.



#326050 Log Home Help Foam questions

Posted by Super0dp on 29 January 2013 - 07:49 PM in Darts and Barrels

So it does not have springer fit in CPVC?
In that case does anyone know of white or bright colored foam that has springer fit in CPVC, and is relatively heat resistant?



#326133 Question to all you modders

Posted by Super0dp on 30 January 2013 - 01:30 PM in General Nerf

Thanks for the clarification - how would you folks go about opening up the Vortex range? What is it lacking? Did you folks like the Diatron internals? (Dual-disc technology)


In my opinion the diatom internals were terrible, only left handed priming and it was a massive pain to wield. To open the line up I think there should be a less clunky, less sucky full auto blaster. (the ntron was terrible) maybe a system like the praxis turned full auto?

#326569 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 09 February 2013 - 05:47 PM in General Nerf

I don't why everyone is bitching because these are really cool! Hell I would even buy them because a pink nerf gun would be sweet! I see some modding potential and I like how they look ergonomic and smooth.



#326687 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 11 February 2013 - 04:09 PM in General Nerf

I like how they are re-releasing the vortex blasters with the better paint style and the orange discs. Good stuff over all.
I wonder how the hammer-action pistol works.
