AND.. Yakkman did this same thing to a Blade02 gun back in the day, although I believe he modified it to shoot micros.
By the way, you have the honor of the first Mad Hornet mod to be added to the directory. Gawrsh!
Anyways, umm... would it be a smarter way to go with a craola barrel then PVC pipe? I mean I know fast decompresion makes it cold (isn't that how they make Nitrogyen?) and might make it explode... But how many times would I be safe to do this without it doing so?
As long as the PVC isn't under pressure, you're fine. By pressure, I mean compressed air in a tank made of PVC. If you're just using pvc/cpvc to make a barrel/breech system, then you shouldn't need to worry about the cold. The PVC will hold for more than enough time for the pressure to be released by the dart exiting the barrel.
(enter your zip code, it will show up)
You can use any nerf gun to shoot airsoft pellets. They fit perfectly into this tubing. They're not very accurate, though, and even my little Tanfoglio could outshoot a modified nite-finder any day, both in ROF, distance, and accuracy.
Shotguns for the win!
Any other questions, you can PM me... since this is a Nerf forum.
EDIT: While I was typing, Yogurt posted... Airsoft is actually just a scaled down version of a nerf plunger/tube, as far as I know. It's not like the spring hits the airsoft round: a plunger compresses air behind the round and the resultant force causes it to travel down the barrel. Of course, I may be wrong. Does anybody here know for sure?
If you've got high pressure, then you need low volume.
If you've got low pressure, then you need high volume.
For a nerf dart, the high pressure low volume tends to work well, where as with a cannon, low pressure high volume works well.
As far as actual psi... I have no idea. In writing this, I realized I probabaly wasn't any help. Sorry for that?
I enjoyed this. It really made me laugh to see that news broadcasters are dorky and fake where ever you go.
I forgot what I was going to add to this...
Oh right. Are you guys calling the war-type game assassins, or just the actual assassins-type game, where everyone is in the stealth mode in everyday life? There were definitely a few moments in that broadcast where confusion between the terms was apparent.
Hokay. I definitely need to get an assassins game going with my co-workers.
I only put mods in the directory from THIS site. Once all the older mods are added, then I'll start branching out with an actual website to take on the NIC. Grinch and I talked a little about it awhile ago, but right now I just don't have time.
EDIT: I forgot to say thanks for the thoughts Spartan. If you'd like to contribute (by searching and sending me links and such) just let me know.
Why don't you just post multiple times and bump your own thread, citing "added___(insert mod here)______ to the directory". That way, your "Directory" post gets in on the current update box, and you won't have a half dozen ancient posts with your name as the last poster.
That sounds like an excellent idea. I'll do that from now on.
I'm trying to add a post to every topic I add to the directory that says, "Added to the directory," or something to that extent. Obviously, I'm not going to start posting on years-old posts, but I am going to post on topics within the month or so.
The reason for this topic is really just to tell everyone that I don't mean to incite any old-topic posting flames, but rather want to make it easy to know if a mod has been added to the directory without having to check the actual directory. The other reason is that at the moment of this topic, the first five (!) topics of the modifications forum have me as the newest poster... I wouldn't want people to get annoyed with "overposts" when many are just directory notifications.
If anyone disagrees with this method, just let me know, and I'll stop.
Good luck, and brass all the way!
1) Is this a Nerf gun, or a knockoff, and is the official name the Nitro Quad?
2) May I take refuge with you when the Zombies attack? I love that book.
I ask the first question because I'm wondering where to put this mod in the directory, and I've never heard of this gun before!
Actually, the same goes for your other recently posted mod, the Coral Viper... I haven't heard of that one either. Once you let me know, they'll both go into the mod directory!
I'm not sure how I missed out on these guns... unless they were way before the bow and arrow or something...
Or, if you're trying to get to CPVC, then use some vinyl (they nest with a little bit of soapy water), and for the rest of the way, use a bicycle innertube.
Well, you cut the innertube into long strips, about a half inch wide. Then you wrap the inner-pipe with the tube in a candy-cane pattern, and thread the pipe into the larger pipe. It forms nearly an airtight seal.
If you have any other questions, let me know!
If people already have write-ups that don't appear in the directory, presumably, they can easily ask Kirby to add it.
YES! I may be slow, and I may be sick of searching and reading through 10 pages of results, but it WILL be complete at one point.
And then someone else will make another mod.
And thanks for the compliment, ambushbug!
I'm in the same boat as Shindig, with about 5 weeks or so of my sophomore year at UW Madison until sweet, sweet summer, when I get to make money and play shows in Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton, maybe Illinois and Iowa as well rockin the piano with my Bop Rock band called Ticket251.
Otherwise, I'm currently undeclared and running out of time, but I'm trying to get a major created for me that focuses on making music out of foam projectiles.
Actually, I'm thinking about graphic design. But, I'm pretty sure I could BS that above major into existence.
Speaking of art, I'm up at this early hour because I just stayed up all night working on an art video involving eggs being dropped upon me.
And the bands:
George Dust (no site yet... sorry!)
So, if anybody's in the Madison area, and feels like talking/getting hit with foam, give me a ring. A ding a ding.
Oh duce, as far as Lawrence goes... they've got a great jazz program, and a wonderful "classical" program as well... but if you're more into the electronic side of musical performance/production, perhaps you might want to look at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee? I've heard they have a great electro-acoustic sound department... because at somewhere like Lawrence or U of M, it's either going to be classical, or jazz (which is really classical with some jazz added in for spice), but all the sound production stuff (like recording, mastering, mixing, etc) you're going to have to learn on your own. But, Lawrence does have the Fred Sturm. Good man, he is. (Appleton is one of my home towns.)
OR, you could head over to UW Oshkosh, as they have a double major program: sound engineer AND a music major. Which means you're basically a god at audio, and pretty good at an instrument. It also means you worked your butt off. But music majors do that anyway, eh?
Sheesh I'm wordy.
I was wondering though, ShadowS said that this stuff sticks to CPVC or PVC when you try to make a dart out of it. Well, what if you lube up your tube with either some grease, olive oil, vegetable oil, pam, wd-40, ANYTHING like that. Or, if you rolled some wax paper into the pipe, then sprayed it, it seems like the paper might come off pretty easily.
As to it being more porous than FBR... I think the point here is that you wouldn't need to worry about straightening it. That's usually the problem with my Stefans, since I'm too lazy to do something about it (although I usually straighten them by leaving them in barrel pipes).
Still though, any takers? I'm pretty fired up about this... but I don't have time/materials to try it out (being in my apartment).
Also, without creating a better seal between the plunger and the turret, any range gained with using cpvc will probably be missed. I've done the cpvc mod, and the turret is in such an unhappy balance that it's tough to see any improvement.
Also, your plunger looks really heavy with the handle on the end of it... is it, or am I being deceived?
Great work though, it looks super solid and quite simple when compared to other clips and loading mechanisms!
1) CO2 becomes expensive (I'm not talking about nerf expensive, I mean expensive in the real world)
2)It's so powerful that the darts destroy themselves after one or two shots.
3)If someone got hit with this and the dart was intact... well it would be like getting hit with a plastic-coated steel weight at paintball velocities. Which is exactly what a stefan is...
4)Those cheap paintball markers have no way to change the air regulation, and the method used to release air from the canister is very primitive. This means that there is never any consistency between shots, AND you waste a ton of CO2 in the process.
5) So let's say you bought a really good paintball marker, and avoided the problems of #4... well now you just spent a ton of money on a product that is only going to shoot a stefan marginally farther. There is a limit to how far these things can be flung... and I think those limits are called physics.
But, it was totally fun to see foam fly that far and fast!
Also, there's a website that was dedicated to turning a cheap paintball marker into an airsoft s n i p e r rifle (there are these types in airsoft). He goes a little more in depth about the problems with these cheap markers.
Unconventional Airsoft - Gas Gun
I also made a variation on this beast... if anybody wants more info, PM me... this is a nerf forum, after all!
In my experience with the Derringers of Nerf, I've found them to be finicky bastards when it comes to sealing those pistons. Even the slightest bit of plastic dust/shaving/fleck will cause the piston to fail to seal; if this happens, it works best for me to take a paper clip, bend it a bit, and scrape the piston clear of obstruction.
The point of all this, is that when replacing the barrel, be sure to have the barrel pointing down to minimize gunk getting in the piston. Also, the pressure release can be plugged, but it's really not necessary: these things are powerful enough as it is. Also, as far as an air tank expansion goes: yeah, it works, but only to an extent. The valve is only so large, so it would be very easy to create an "air bottleneck" with a larger tank. Honestly, just put a CPVC barrel on there and call it a day.
I tried utilizing simply the valve by adding a larger pump and airtank, but the valve just isn't made to handle much higher pressures (my gun didn't blow, but it was nearly impossible to get it to seal, and when it did, the volumes just weren't there for effective nerfing).
I think the SSPB could be my favorite gun... Makes me feel like a male version of Derringer Meryl, minus the cloak.
Good luck pal, and rock that shitakke at all times.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and Lefty's mod works wonders. The air tank is the cylindrical area between the barrel (piston) and the pump. Basically, the top "L" of the gun is the airtank (not counting the barrel). So, if you were to saw off the pump and the barrel, you'd have an airtank. Which would be worthless. Almost.
It goes in the directory, just because it's cool. But it would have even a higher awesomeness factor if there were pictures to accompany the light (and by "IT" I mean the write-up; the gun is awesome regardless!).
I believe he was talking about sawing the entire front of the gun off, including the grey hinge-mechanism, thus alllowing for longer barrels. I think there was a previous topic on this (or at least a post). I would recommend just buying a maverick, and using it for its ROF, and not doing anything to it (except the swing out mod). I tried modding mine by putting in CPVC barrels and it doesn't fire as well as my brother's stock. The reason for this is the gap between the cylinder and the plunger, as when you take the cylinder apart, this upsets the careful spacing of the unmodded gun.
You can't extend the barrels because the grey hinge is right up against the edge of the barrels and with a barrel extension the drum wouldn't rotate.
But if you do find some awesome way to extend the barrels and it works, let us all know!
Oh maverick: it's proof that clothing doesn't make you cool.
