Massacre style foam barricades will not work, wind will blow them over easily.
Mitch: If you do come to this war, please refrain from asking me how much I want for my crossbow. It isn't for sale, and generally most guns aren't unless someone specifies that they are. And please wait until the end of rounds to ask these questions, if you feel you must.
A huge, recently common problem is if the entire plunger head stem breaks off. This is more prone to occur if you store the gun while itís primed, as the constant force on the stem weakens it over time, until it shoots off. The best way to repair this, is to pilot an 1/8″ hole about 1/2″ down into the center of the end of the plunger rod. Take a nice fat 3/4 - 7/8″ mounting or wood screw, run a 3/4″ fender washer, then your plunger head neoprene washer, then another 3/4″ fender washer (both uncut), and screw it into your piloted hole slowly until it canít go any further. If youíre using the replaced plunger tube, a 1 1/4″ neoprene washer will do the job, but a 1 1/8″ one will be the perfect seal. Theyíre just significantly harder to find.
Taken from Split's guide.
Yeah, it will work, no it will not be completely stock, either.
Hope this helps.
EDIT: I use a 1 1/4 with my stock PT, it works great
I like the way you replaced the plunger tube. I can see the Guru MKIII influence. CPVC will help your ranges quite a bit. I had PETG, mine got like 90ft with the plunger tube replaced, and I switched to CPVC, it got about 15ft more.
Is there a lot or any plunger handle bendage with the bungees?
In all seriousness though:
Holy Mountains- System of a Down.
The firs part of Fosaken by As I lay Dying. It's pretty cool intro music, no vocals. Right up to the part when he starts screaming. It's a good 45 seconds long, I believe.
I'd recommend that he lose the recon and get a big salvo, dtb, or hornet. All those guns will give better ranges and pretty good rof.
Meh. DTB only outshoots the recon by 5-6ft, BSs do have 4 barrels, but need 10 pumps to prime them, and you need to stick 4 darts down the barrel. Hornets need a lot of pumps too.
Xbox: If your dad doesn't mind the extra size, a LS might be a good option. Just pop out the ARs, and add a NF spring. The new ones are pretty weak, so that won't be overkill at all, expecially with streamlines.
EDIT: I looked through my parts bin, and discovered that I had enough materials to do this:
I realize how much I need to cut the back down. IT will be done after school. Hopefully. I can't wait to see what that pump is for coming out the scope.
Thanks a lot Zorn! This is so useful.
This is absolutely awesome, a war on the subway line. You can shoot a singled titan out of high park subway stop and hit my house.
Shit, that is amazing. The only thing rarer than that has gotta be the SM1.5K arrow shooter... NIB.
Nice, I can see Orange contacting you shortly.
I can't paint to save my life. Painting is fun, but mine are always simple, just taking guns apart and spray painting them different colors.
+ Glint's awesome center flag push run. He ran about 90ft, hosed down someone with a MS, and got the flag kill. It was Effeminate.
+ K-10 screaming "I 1up you!" at K9.
+ Krolik: "I DONT CARE IF HE'S YOUR FUCKING COUSIN!! SHOOT HIM!!!!!"(After he had shot her)
+ Getting thinwall CPVC.
+ Crooked jumping over fester and Mr. Green getting it on camera.
+ Shooting slushie.
+ The eyes of fire.
+ Shooting my xbow and 2k at money train, him dodging both, and nailing me in the right leg with BOTH pistol splats. That guy is impossible to hit.
+ Fully calling that that guy's PAS would break. He told me there was a +bow spring in it and I said " I hope you reinforced it, that trigger is gonna break" He said "Ha no it won't". Guess what, 5 minutes later, the trigger nub snapped.
+ Playing most of the day with a big blast. That thing is awesome. Much higher velocity= easier to hit moving targets.
+ Getting 2 kills with an arrowstorm.
+ FA_24: "When you are right next to someone, try to tap them with your barrel instead of shooting them, to avoid causing unessecary pain. This applies to everyone except Dumpster, feel free to shoot him point blank"
I forgot my EaB at the war, and now dumpster has it.
Getting ready. From left to right: Dude13(?) Applefury, Dumpster, Dirstache
Dumpster with the Boltok. He reminded me of a communist with the headband all day.
SGM and domsayer
FY125 or something like that.
SGM loves to win. Segulli taking pics
FA_24: That is great about Fester's mom and the pasta. Im definitely down for that, much better than taquitos.
Madmatt and I might be there a tad early, my dad has to go do some other things.
+ Seeing everyone again that I already knew (you know who you are)
+ Meeting all the new people, such as SGM, CNP, BoneRiot, K-10, 1337
+ Having my xbow work reasonably well.
+ Not having any guns break ( I thought I did, but it was a 2 second fix.)
+ My cousing (madmatt) having an awesome time, and getting some major welts to show to his girlfriend
+ Getting a sm500
+ Vanilla coke
+ Italian food
+ The pentagon of pain. FA_24 shot me point blank in the crotch with a lightnin blitz during an Effeminate slide kill.
+ Not taking any REALLY painful shots.
+ Not getting picked last for teams at all. That happened a lot in previous wars.
+ Hitting Crooked at least 8 times all day.
+ The Pulsator and the sexual innuendos
+ Chocolate donut
There are a few cons I believe I should mention.
- The goober (Slurpie straw BBBB guy). This kid wanted NOTHING but to use everyone else's guns. He followed me on 2 rushes, asking to try my xbow. He also shot me point blank in the back of the leg with a big blast when I was on his own team. He was annoying as hell.
- I adress this to CNP: Im really sorry for the first round when I shot you in the face. I really felt bad afterwards and I felt I should apologize.
The xbow is simple, which makes it the most reliable primary I have used. Properly reinforced, it can go through a whole lot of punishment before anything breaks.
I cannot wait. This is going to be Effeminate.
The problem I can see with this is that it would get extremely boring.
I remember at Massacre 2 I was on a team that made a bunker against 3 other teams and it was just so boring. Everyone just taking pot shots into the bunker.
Nerf is about moving and dodging, not sitting in a bunker holding off the other team. I mean whatever floats your boat but...I don't think this round will last very long at a Nerf War with impatient Teenagers
Yeah, that was boring as hell. I was one of the people trying to pick off the guys in the bunker, I think I probably put at least 25 darts into it, and hit maybe 2 people.
This is not fun. Canuck, you have obviously not attended a nerf war. I mean, with enough people and the 3/15 rule, this could take a good 2 hours or more. Our round at Massacre 2 was called off after a while, because there were 4 or 5 people left in the "bunker" (a bunch of styrofoam barricades reasonably close to each-other.) with all their lives left. It is much more fun when people are rushing, shooting, dodging, as apple said.
However, if the other team in the bunker has MSs and Vulcans, then the other team could get in reasonably close, and maybe dodge a bunch of darts before rushing in and popping a few darts off, and then retreating. This could be fun, but it should DEFINITELY be a one shot kill type of game, at least for the defenders.
Onto your barrel: You are using CPVC, if my eyes do not decieve me. CPVC can be a great barrel material, but not for air guns. Perhaps your FBR is really thin, but usually, PETG or 9/16 brass is better for airguns. Airguns= looser barrel material. 1 foot of CPVC will probably kill some range, try switching the barrel material or cutting down the barrel to 8 or 9 inches.
Like at previous wars, I will probably end up bringing every gun I own (I don't remember all of them right now) and if anyone likes what they see, they can make an offer (xbow, Manta Ray, belt blaster, and AT2Ks are exempt from this).
Things I am looking to buy.
Angel: I would like to buy 15ft of your foam, as a kind of sample. I am still looking for a primary foam, and I am stuck between yours, Mile High, and SwiftNerf's white foam. Im getting samples of all, and deciding based on stefans I make.
ANY AMERICANS COMING UP: I am looking for THINWALL 1/2 inch CPVC. Slightly sanded out at 1 end, they fit FA_24's foam like a DREAM. PM me and we will fix up a price. I was thinking 45 cents a foot, but that is negotiable. I can do trades.
Good job, hope to get shot by it at mass4.
If you don't feel confident with a dremel/pipe cutters, do not attempt an angel breech.
FA: I emailed my dad and asked him to send you a payment on my behalf. Whether he did it remains a mystery, but I will PM you his name so that you will know the payment when/if you see it. Ill talk to Maddmatt about his payment. I may have to borrow a gun this time round, I honestly have NOTHING that has decent ROF and range. Only the extremes of either.
EDIT: Thanks Cranky. I get those confused all the time.
EDIT#2: I think a good idea for the next one is to minimize gun fiddling/firing during the podcast. It made it a little hard to hear/concentrate on what was being said sometimes. Sounded like someone was dry-firing a crossbow at one point: I cringed.
I love in the vid how two of the skill kills are on me. The sliding one where crooked nails me in the nipple with the PAS at 3ft away, and Fester's amazing 200ft headshot on me (accuracy).
On topic: Don't trust hot glue. I learned the hard way. I think my hot glue is designed for sub tropic climates or something, because it could easily be peeled off anything at 15 degrees celsius, which for americans, really isn't all that cold. Use a very small amount of hot glue to tack the 2k to the LS shell, and go to town with the epoxy putty. Your RSCB looks like it's about to fall off, too. It looks effective.
This is very cool, and I hope you make it up to Canada so I can see it in person.
