#150762 To Good To Be True Mod?

Posted by Shadowblade on 12 April 2008 - 08:33 PM in Modifications

Who the heck wants to mod a nerf gun and doesn't have a clue about an AR??? Okay, for one thing, this site has a nice little function called SEARCH. Try that first, I know there's a whole section for mods. And if that doesn't help, then you can try posting for help...toilet paper and elmers glue...that's gotta be the stupidest thing I've ever heard...

and I agree with RavenX, a NF (that's a Nite Finder) would be a nice gun to start modding.

#150655 What's Your Fav Stock Dart

Posted by Shadowblade on 12 April 2008 - 09:09 AM in General Nerf

If it has to be a stock dart, I'd have to say taggers (although I usually use the converted ones...).

#149713 Pvc And Air

Posted by Shadowblade on 06 April 2008 - 06:23 PM in Homemades

Well, if the limit is, say 300 psi for example, why in the world would you WANT to reach it? Just use what you think is reasonable and play it safe. Common sense should keep you safe.

And as far as I know, pvc can take a good amount of beating before it fails...at least in some spud cannon designs I've seen, but maybe that's another topic all together...

#148209 Foregrip Longshot W/ Paint + Light

Posted by Shadowblade on 30 March 2008 - 07:25 PM in Modifications

Love the clean look and the awesome paintjob. Makes me want to try something like this on my own LS.

Good job man, and welcome to the Haven! Hope you enjoy your stay!

#147578 Magazine Breakthrough Being Re Done

Posted by Shadowblade on 28 March 2008 - 08:14 PM in Modifications

The idea of a drum mag for a LS sounds very promising. I'll be tracking this homemade for sure, and pictures would be nice, as the others have mentioned.

Btw, welcome to the Haven! ^_^

#147120 Primary Guns

my "tactical" LS, with red dot, flashlight, and low power red light for nighttime indoor wars...

#147119 Taggers In 1/2in Pvc

Posted by Shadowblade on 26 March 2008 - 03:54 PM in General Nerf

One problem I have had with taggers is that they are a little too long to work effectively in my guns. I shortened them slightly (like 1/4") and they worked much better. Don't know if this applies to this case or not as I've never worked with a sm1500...

#147118 Semi Auto Prototype

Posted by Shadowblade on 26 March 2008 - 03:51 PM in Homemades

This looks pretty good, can't wait to see the finished product. So I guess there will be no clip/magazine and you'll single feed it? :ph34r:

#145734 Recon Rifle

Posted by Shadowblade on 18 March 2008 - 09:21 PM in Modifications

That looks kinda like the HK G3 battle rifle...pretty sweet.

Oops, sorry about that P.C.III

#145203 Cardboard Armor?

Posted by Shadowblade on 15 March 2008 - 10:25 AM in Nerf Wars

Using a cardboard vest as armor is very impractical, but I do use a light vest made of duct tape and light cardboard for tactical reasons. For endurance wars, I have pockets for LS clips, other ammo, barrels for my modded watergun, etc. Just think of it as a really cheap customized tactical vest. But other than that, I see don't see a need for armor.

#144638 A Thought On The Longshot

Posted by Shadowblade on 10 March 2008 - 08:51 PM in Modifications

in fact, i am an ACTUAL girl :P and my friend got me into nerf guns, and I've been poking at my collection for awhile... I have the Recon, Longshot, Nite Finder (my only modded gun [man isn't that sad?]) Firefly, and Maverick (which is broken right now). Whenever me n my friends play, we always turn off the lights, just for fun, and i always like having a light on each gun. So, i don't really want to put the light i have on the top, it makes it harder for me to aim at people. I can aim well, but i usually need the scope on top to aim, light or dark. So it'd be helpful to have an extra light in place of the bi-pod, which i never use. I like the tactical rail system, because i can change things if i don't like it.... I'm no good at modding, really so i like things kinda simple...

long story short I wanna have two tactical rails on my longshot so i can have a light and scope, without them being permanently there :D

Well, looks like we do have some active female nerfers. I thought they were an endangered species haha. If you really want to put a tactical rail on your longshot, you could rip one off of another gun (maybe that broken Mav?) and epoxy the thing on or you could custom make one.

If I had time i would just make one, but right now, I'm being ghetto and using velcro strips on my longshot. I have them running along the front end of the "assault rifle" portion of the LS and some more velcro on my flashlight, low-power red light, etc. Pretty handy for small stuff. Just an idea...

#143486 Ds Not Firing

Posted by Shadowblade on 02 March 2008 - 05:09 PM in Modifications

Hm, this happened to one of my DS a couple of months ago. You could try modding the shells (drill a bigger hole at the bottom of the shell) like Renegade's shell mod here DoubleShot mod.

This should allow more airflow.

#143483 Titan With A Twist

Posted by Shadowblade on 02 March 2008 - 05:01 PM in Modifications

Very nice. I like the integration idea and the use of the plunger tube for the breech. I'm assuming based on your opinion that the breech is sealed very tightly. Distances? I want to try something like this on my converted watergun barrel.

Again, a very good idea.

#143300 Nerfing Stories?

Posted by Shadowblade on 01 March 2008 - 10:46 AM in Off Topic

I bet the girl you met is like 10 years old.

Hahahaha...no. I'm not a pedophile. Lol.

#143254 Nerfing Stories?

Wow, play nerf and score a girl...nice. Wish that was how I met my girlfriend...

#143079 Nonstandard Game Types - Ideas, Rules, Etc.

Posted by Shadowblade on 28 February 2008 - 08:06 PM in Nerf Wars

Being from Augusta, Georgia, there aren't that many nerfers here except for some of those rich bastards from the neighboring county (but let's not go there...). As a result we never have large-scale wars but one gametype I plan on testing is an escort-type of game, possibly a spinoff of Assassins. There will be two teams in the scenario: the bodyguards and the assassins. There will also be one "VIP" who is only armed with a pistol of some sort and it is the job of the bodyguards to protect this person until a given date and time. The assassins have to take the target out before this date. The target will probably have to be escorted (hence the game name) from place to place to avoid being completely pwned by an ambush.

So yeah, I don't know if I can find enough people to test this out, but I have a feeling the police are going to get a little suspicious if I'm camping out at someone's house with a modded black LS. Then again this may be stupid, but I just wanted to throw out this idea.

#143059 Problems With Converted Taggers In Ls

Posted by Shadowblade on 28 February 2008 - 06:59 PM in Modifications

Well I've done the basic mods on my LS (AR, stuff like that) and I haven't done the superclip mod, so it probably is my dart. I'll play around with the darts a little bit and see if I can get them to work...and I'll stop storing my darts in the clips (I usually leave them in there just in case I get ambushed). Thanks a lot for the advice!

#142944 Problems With Converted Taggers In Ls

Posted by Shadowblade on 27 February 2008 - 10:10 PM in Modifications

Hey everyone, I'm new and this is my first post (my thanks goes to admins for validating me) and I'm not sure if this should go in the Mods section because I'm using modded darts but please move if needed.

I am currently using Converted Tagger Darts in my LS (because they're cheaper than Streamlines) but once in every two or three clips or so the dart will jam up in the LS. I opened it up once to unjam the thing and found the dart doubled over and jammed into the barrel. Is anyone else having these problems or is it just my dart/clip/LS?
