#273817 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Hi Yah on 01 May 2010 - 08:47 AM in Modifications

Here's my nitefinder rifle.

Posted Image

And here's it primed.

Any questions and comments please PM me.

#274268 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by Hi Yah on 07 May 2010 - 08:22 PM in Modifications

Here's a standard big blast that I made a while back.
Posted Image

It has a 1/2" PVC coupler.
Posted Image

And here's a pict with a 1' long 1/2" CPVC barrel, nested in a stub of 1/2" PVC. The CPVC has been drilled out with a 1/2" spade bit, for a looser fit on my darts.
Posted Image

It gets good ranges. I also replace the stock o-ring with a #17 Danco o-ring. The over pressure release valve now kicks in at about 7-8 pumps.

Any questions or comments please PM me.

A teaser.

Replacement plunger head.
Posted Image

Held on with a 6-32 bolt and a nut on the other end.
Posted Image

1" PETG plunger tube from Petco.
Posted Image

The new plunger head not only gives a better seal, it also increases plunger volume. I would estimate that the new plunger head adds 1/4" plunger travel. Yes, there will be a write up. And, yes this will get a plunger draw extension, just like in my previous write-up.

The thing is some of them were pretty close and others weren't. And it didn't seem to matter if they were straight or not as I checked them before every shot.

How would you recommend getting them centered then?

Ninja focus.

Just make sure the hole is centered and make it a bit smaller so that the weight can't move side to side.

#271670 Dartsmithing Tips Archive

Posted by Hi Yah on 08 April 2010 - 04:52 PM in Darts and Barrels

What I used to do is make the dart normally, but then glue on a 3/8" felt disc to the top. This worked just as good as slug darts, but the materials are easier to get.

#229478 New Raider CS-35 Speculation Thread

Posted by Hi Yah on 10 May 2009 - 08:48 PM in General Nerf

Personally I think this gun is going to be pretty good. Anyway, even if is bad then we still can scrap it for parts and the drum mag. I think Nerf is making guns these days look cooler, have better stock ranges, and less modability. This one looks like it has a lot of potential.

#236787 Guide To Barrel Material

Posted by Hi Yah on 16 June 2009 - 04:05 PM in Modifications

I have tried PEX from Home Depot and it is noticeably tighter that CPVC. I was able to real load with it but if I tried to ram rod the tip of the dart would go into the center of the foam behind it and would ruin the dart.

#274947 Guide To Barrel Material

Posted by Hi Yah on 16 May 2010 - 04:33 PM in Modifications

Hello I need some Measurements of Brass Pipes and would be thankful if Someone could provide them.Why? You ask itīs simple:I live in Germany and we use the Metric System here so measurements in inches are of no use to me(Due to variations in conversion ratios).I need the IDīs, ODīs and Wall thicknesses(in Millimetres) of 1/2", 17/32" 9/16" and 19/32" Brass.
Thank You in advance

Why don't you just bring one of your darts to a store that sells brass and get the size that fits your darts good.

Ice, I think that paintjob looks pretty good. You just have to clean it up a bit and remove all the Nerf logos and you're good to go

#236783 Raider Preview

Posted by Hi Yah on 16 June 2009 - 03:31 PM in General Nerf

I wonder if you can add e-tape to the plunger to compress the spring more? That could give you decent ranges.

Posted by Hi Yah on 15 June 2009 - 04:51 PM in General Nerf

This thing looks like it has some potential. It appears to be a beefed up recon that looks way cooler! If this gun can be Angel breach it might actually be pretty good.

In season one of Monk, Adrian is reinacting a homicideand shoots Sharona with an Airzone Professional.

On the Colbert Report, Steven talked about college kids playing humans vs. zombies.

#276106 N-strike Barrel Break Ix-2

Posted by Hi Yah on 26 May 2010 - 06:24 PM in News

I might actually get this gun. Even if it has a reverse plunger it shouldn't be too hard to make new internals for.

#254725 Nerf N-strike Longstrike Cs-6 - Preview!

Posted by Hi Yah on 27 October 2009 - 06:54 PM in General Nerf

It kinda reminds me of the lanard hand cannon. It looks like it might have some potential.

#241310 From Titan-hornet-mav To The Unforgiven

Posted by Hi Yah on 10 July 2009 - 04:54 PM in Modifications

That thing has a shit load of dead space.

#226262 The Cyclops

Posted by Hi Yah on 26 April 2009 - 05:07 PM in Modifications

Why didn't you just run the tubing from the tank below the trigger and place the pump in the handle? This way you can have the nf and the at3k.

#242274 Dt Furyfire: A Peak Inside

Posted by Hi Yah on 16 July 2009 - 04:17 PM in General Nerf

This should be better than a mav, because the turret rotates when it's primed. While the mav rotates with the trigger.

#266345 Deploy Cs-6 Overhaul

Posted by Hi Yah on 21 February 2010 - 05:28 PM in Modifications

Nice job. But, instead of a hornet tank I would recommend a big salvo tank. Overall, you did a great job.

#233478 Vos Pistol

Posted by Hi Yah on 30 May 2009 - 07:45 PM in Homemades

It's nice to see a homemade that isn't a simple springer or air cannon. This lools very similar to Boltsniper's FAR.

#255421 Airtech 4000 Overhaul

Posted by Hi Yah on 05 November 2009 - 06:55 PM in Modifications

Great work as usual. I definitely think the at4k is an underestimated gun. Nice mod.

#240999 N-strike Clipped Pas

Posted by Hi Yah on 09 July 2009 - 09:47 AM in Modifications

Don't know how relevant this is, but you've also added a notable amount of weight on the plunger head and the plunger rod via the epoxy putty and brass that you used as reinforcement. While I'm sure that this isn't necessarily the deal-breaker here (and that you really did a nice job reinforcing that thing), it is considerable weight to add for a part like the plunger head and rod. Not saying I'm 100% correct, but perhaps a point to consider.

That little weight would not make a difference because it's so minimal and he added springs, so the added weight would not affect the ranges.

#239941 N-strike Clipped Pas

Posted by Hi Yah on 03 July 2009 - 07:06 AM in Modifications

Great mod, and a clear writeup. I personnaly love how you reinforced the fuck out of it!

#276807 N-strike Spectre Rev-5

Posted by Hi Yah on 04 June 2010 - 11:45 AM in News

Why are all these new blasters all store exclusive?

#245166 Berserker Internals

Posted by Hi Yah on 02 August 2009 - 12:41 PM in General Nerf

How good is the rotation mechanism?

#240522 Titan/magstrike Integration

Posted by Hi Yah on 06 July 2009 - 07:31 PM in Modifications

That's one bad ass gun, but don't you think it's a little overkill to have 2 magstrikes? Aside from that it is cool and I like the paint job.

#241819 Dart Tag Ctf Stormfire Blaster

Posted by Hi Yah on 13 July 2009 - 10:02 PM in General Nerf

This gun seem very similar to the switchshot. The barrel is glued on and the internals are essential the same.

I loved that tiny kid with the orange and white bbbb. It was just so funny.

#231353 Hinged Double Barrel Pump Action Shotgun

Posted by Hi Yah on 19 May 2009 - 06:12 PM in Modifications

I love the shotgun style loading! It's much faster than a flip clip.

#230670 Cosmetics

Posted by Hi Yah on 16 May 2009 - 08:39 PM in General Nerf

This is what I personnally believe. A shitty gun with a great paint job, is a shitty gun. A great gun with a shitty paintjob, is a great gun. Paint isn't important to me, but making mods clean is.

#255797 Recon Cs-6 And Ertl Rapid Fire Shot Gun Mod

Posted by Hi Yah on 09 November 2009 - 07:16 PM in Modifications

So basically, it's a longshot on steroids, right? Nice mod, all it needs now is a paintjob.

#262905 The First Look At The Tetrastrike

Posted by Hi Yah on 24 January 2010 - 07:01 AM in General Nerf

It looks like this gun might have some potential.

#267002 Pvc Nerf Gun Rack I Made

Posted by Hi Yah on 26 February 2010 - 07:49 AM in General Nerf

I like it, but the thing I like about peg boards is that they take the guns away from the floor giving you a bit more space in your workshop and they have a low profile. While, this one keeps the guns on the floor. But, other than that it is good.

#232037 An Open Letter To New Posters And Anyone On The Waiting List!

Posted by Hi Yah on 23 May 2009 - 01:15 PM in General Nerf

This is a great thread. This is exactly what I did. I lurched around the site for 1 year, and then I created an account. Is it really that hard to make proper posts and read the COC?

#241535 The Fomebow - Extensive Bow And Arrow Makeover.

Posted by Hi Yah on 11 July 2009 - 08:52 PM in Modifications

Nice mod. The only question I have is what kind of ranges is it getting?

#259638 Berserker Fusion! Daikaiju!

Posted by Hi Yah on 23 December 2009 - 10:33 AM in Modifications

Couldn't you just take a heat gun to some CPVC and bend it so it fits in the shell? This would remove the need of an elbow and cut down on the dead space.

#272215 Dart Door V2

Posted by Hi Yah on 14 April 2010 - 04:27 PM in Darts and Barrels

So, basically it's a doggie door for darts? Nice job.

#244749 Furyfire Improvements..petg..straw Modd..spring Addition

Posted by Hi Yah on 30 July 2009 - 05:33 PM in Modifications

Nice job. Are the ranges better than a maverick?

#265805 Blaster Classification/rating System

Posted by Hi Yah on 17 February 2010 - 08:46 PM in General Nerf

What about RSCB's? Would they get rof points of a single barrel, but get the dart capacity of 2-8? And what if you have a turreted gun with inline clipped barrels?

#274323 Externally Singled Hornet (for Power)

Posted by Hi Yah on 08 May 2010 - 08:57 PM in Modifications

Okay, im the noobiest person on this forum and have a hornet that id like to single. So at the part in where you make the breech, could you lighten that up for me or someone help me on how to do that exactly.

Any help appreciated.


To make a breach you take your barrel sheath and cut out a section of it to fit your darts. Then you cut your barrel to your desired length. Depending on the material of your sheath and barrel you might have to modify your barrel or sheath to have them fit properly. I know that this isn't detailed but this should give you the jist of making a basic breach.
