#106820 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 20 May 2007 - 08:18 PM in Modifications

CS, you're starting to scare people with what you do to the guns in the Unity Power System.



#121001 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 24 August 2007 - 02:06 PM in Modifications

Does it matter if he's not shooting anyone?

BigFoot: Does the paint make the slide difficult to pull back (because the portion of the gun that it slides on is thicker), or is there not really any noticeable difference? Also, what grit sandpaper (or what Dremel bit) did you use to get such a smooth look?



#123725 Modification and Paintjob Pictures

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 20 September 2007 - 09:16 PM in Modifications

Never lube a gun with WD-40. The solution eats away rubber (meaning your O-rings), and your gun will suffer tremendously. Other than that, the gun looks good. Barrel is a little crooked, though.

This is my longshot.

I think you mean Double Shot.

Edit: CH got there before me.



#129896 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 16 November 2007 - 03:07 PM in Homemades

Great work, Rifle. Does your gun fire megas like the FAR, or do you have a nested brass barrel and some inserts in those shells?



#130000 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 17 November 2007 - 03:45 PM in Homemades

CPVC in the shell lines up with the brass in the barrel almost perfectly.

Is there any problem with the dart's transition from CPVC to brass? If not, I think my redesign of my shotgun concept might work. Since brass shells are expensive and time-consuming to make, I was going to use CPVC ones.



#93254 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 29 October 2006 - 01:23 PM in Homemades

Damn, sponge. I can't wait for those test-shot results. By the way, how long is the barrel on that thing?



#93839 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 07 November 2006 - 12:04 PM in Homemades

You should put some range test results up here, as well as some statistics about barrel length, etc. It would be great to use that thing as a snįper rifle or something.



#129648 Modifying A Longshot?

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 13 November 2007 - 09:33 PM in Modifications

The plunger is removed by unscrewing the plate at the back of the plunger tube on the bolt sled and pulling the assembly out. If you want to separate the plunger tube from the bolt sled, you can't do it through anything short of sawing the two apart near the silver pin towards the bolt face.



#101970 Modifying A Longshot?

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 08 April 2007 - 09:05 PM in Modifications

I just modified my longshot... and now my longshot clips jams more then before the gun was modified, does anyone know what the problem is and what i can do?

Jamming while feeding darts, or jamming while being removed/inserted from/into the gun?

Either way, make sure the bolt is pulled all the way back to move the clips. Also do not slide the bolt back more than one time per loading unless you modified the system to be able to shotgun-load darts.



#121206 Modifying A Longshot?

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 26 August 2007 - 04:15 PM in Modifications

Is there any other material I can use for the new barrel? I can't get my hands on Brass. Would any PVC or CPVC work for the barrel? and if so what size?

No. PETG or brass (17/32" O.D. brass). Since you can't get the latter, contact OMC for some PETG tubing, although I have yet to see a breach made out of it.



#141915 Longshot Mod

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 22 February 2008 - 01:43 AM in Modifications

You could try taking a flat-bladed screwdriver and hammering it through the three supports for the restrictor. If you do that, be wary of bending the bolt, though.

Also, please check the post dates. If the last reply was over a month or two ago, then try PMing the poster or searching instead. Just a heads-up before you get flamed.

Edit:
Omega: He's new. Noobs make mistakes. I told him what he did. I'm sure you've screwed up before, too.



#107086 Longshot Mod

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 22 May 2007 - 04:53 PM in Modifications

What, you can't pick up a fucking spring? Are you a cripple?

Chill. It was a dumb question, but calm down.

If you are not careful, a few springs may pop out, like the one used to hold the scope, but nothing vital. Just remember where all the parts go, and it is a very easy mod.

P.S.: The ' key and the shift key are located next to your right pinky. Use them.



#114020 Longshot Mod

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 01 July 2007 - 05:03 PM in Modifications

I just bought one of these and I used this mod. It seems to work pretty good, I can't wait to see what it can do in a NerfWare

This thread was one month old, and you contributed nothing. Please refrain from posting things like this just to raise your post count, which is no mark of seniority. Also, please use the Spell Check when you post.



#98837 Longshot Modification.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 26 January 2007 - 06:08 PM in Modifications

This Longshot makes everything I have look like garbage. That's why I must have one. Two questions: How would you rate this on a scale of 1-10 for difficulty for a decent modder? How long did it take you to assemble and install the breech system?



#98873 Longshot Modification.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 27 January 2007 - 08:15 PM in Modifications

Why not integrate an At2k or At3k into the front gun and just use the front gun's pump as a means of pulling the airtanks pin? Sure you'd have to find a place for the pump but it's possible.


Sounds like something Falcon would do, being the turret junkie that he is... However, the range and power of not only one, but multiple quickly-reloading back-up shots is something that would make this worthwhile.



#98888 Longshot Modification.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 28 January 2007 - 12:01 PM in Modifications

I just have two questions, what’s the point of the tightening rings and where can I get them?


You just have to make them by crimping the brass slightly at certain points. As far as I know, there's nothing to be bought except for the brass.



#128768 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 06 November 2007 - 12:04 AM in News

I was just providing examples, but yes. However, I would leave one on the "laser." Even if it turns out to be a POS, which there is a 99.99% chance of happening, then it provides a readily available shells for an integration or replacement.



#129831 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 15 November 2007 - 10:32 PM in News

A double magazine is 12 shots. Trips would be in the 18+ range, but the spring problems and sheer size make it impractical. Do two double magazines spaced next to each other by PVC. (Not my idea, but I can't remember who thought of the PVC spacers.)

Also, I doubt that they are going to go back and add a second mag to the package. They might make the move to stock stores with the spares, but I wouldn't bet on it until we get some more info.



#129775 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 15 November 2007 - 04:44 PM in News

No. I know that I have not seen the gun in person, but look where they put the lock for the spare mag. It's halfway between the grip and the shoulder rest. The double-mag would hit the grip before it fit in there..



#129841 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 15 November 2007 - 11:00 PM in News

No. Too much work, too easy to screw up, not enough gain. Use the 6-round mags or the 12-rounders. I'm not going to stop you from trying, but it's a waste of time.



#128744 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 05 November 2007 - 09:50 PM in News

Perhaps this should have been stated earlier. The rails on this gun are like on the normal LS. You would need to take an inverse rail, such as from the top of a Crossfire or from an LS scope, glue it to your gun/accessory, and then slide that onto the rail on the RC.



#132386 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 14 December 2007 - 01:17 AM in News

I don't think anybody has mentioned this yet:

http://www.amazon.co...LS/ref=dp_olp_2

Guy claiming to already have one to sell. He clearly can't, any thoughts from people?

As a side note, this is the same guy selling a Crossbow for $200 (http://www.amazon.co...6128144&sr=1-17)

CaptainCC is full of shit.

On a more cheery note, the release is tomorrow. And all Wal*Marts have the RC in stock? For $20? Kickass.



#130604 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 24 November 2007 - 11:46 PM in News

I wish I knew if the RC's slide is an inner one or outer one.

In reference to what?



#128619 New Nerf Blaster From Hasbro

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 04 November 2007 - 10:01 PM in News

It will. The back of the stock is shaped like a sideways U to accept the bottom of the magazine, but I don't know how firmly it will hold it. (The magazine is placed in horizontally, so that the bottom of the mag is parallel to the back of the stock).



#130411 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 23 November 2007 - 12:15 AM in Modifications

Ace Hardware and Home Depot both carry springs, albeit different lines. I personally prefer the HD ones. Their line is called "Handyman". For an NF, you'll want the 9713s. They come in a 2-pack for about $5-7, and their dimensions are almost identical to the NF spring's with the exception of a heavier gauge. They should be in the hardware aisle near the bolts, nuts, and hinges. I warn you though, they require heavy reinforcement to be used without destroying your gun quickly.

For a better-fitting spring, cut down an AR-15 buffer spring available here.



#128690 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 05 November 2007 - 04:04 PM in Modifications

CPVC is good if you need a lot of barrel material and have no money (AKA it's cheap). However, it tends to be too tight on most darts and is difficult to load with certain foams. It's also easy to bend at long lengths, which is not ideal if you need a super-accurate high-powered gun like a Titan.



#127880 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 28 October 2007 - 08:36 PM in Modifications

The springs in HD will be near the hardware aisle (yes, there is a set of aisles in a hardware store designated "hardware"). You'll almost always find them near the bolts, screws, washers, steel rods, etc. Usually there are only two to five different types of compression springs, with the rest being extension springs.

Thanks again for bailing me out on this one, Carbon. Looks great. One problem, though. The first link (for CS' guide on plastic machining) actually directs to his DIY air tank.



#104925 Magstrike Modification.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 10 May 2007 - 08:29 PM in Modifications

So ur sayin that i dont have 2 have a stupid plug OR clamp?

What do you mean abbreviations? isnt OP and abbreviation?
just saying...
anyway, thanks for the info.

Has anyone ever thought about spray painting the magstrike? that would be sweet!!

Just plug the valve. Also, you must not have gotten the point when I told you to stop using chatroom abbreviations, which is strictly forbidden by our Code of Conduct.



#104847 Magstrike Modification.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 10 May 2007 - 04:04 PM in Modifications

What do you mean by OP valve?
Also, what does it mean when u say, "Flush with the white piece?

An OP valve is a small hole in the pump, called the over-pressure release valve, that is plugged with hot glue to attain higher pressures in the air tank. "Flush with the white piece" means until the surface is even with that of the white piece. Also, it's not a good idea to revive month-old topics with questions often answered in the text or that could easily be figured out, or to use chatroom abbreviations (I.e.: u for you, l8r for later, etc.).

Edit: Slug beat me to it.



#93096 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 27 October 2006 - 03:11 PM in Homemades

Nice drawing. But how big will the gun really be?
Will multiple darts fit in each shell?



The gun will, ideally, be no bigger than Boltsniper's SCAR-N. If I incorporate the plunger tube into the stock, then I could theoretically shorten the gun by around 20cm, and also eliminate some durability problems with an attached stock rather than an integrated stock. That little stub you see sticking out of the left part of the drawing was going to be an attached stock, but I scrapped the idea and forgot to erase the part from my sketch.

The gun will have shells, but I don't plan to have multiple projectiles per shot. It will be a slug-gun type weapon, like I said earlier. In order to fire off multiple shots, I would need to involve sabots or something of the like, and that would only be as a proof of concept attempt. Multiple pellets wouldn't go very far anyway, so it would almost be pointless for wars that aren't fought in buildings.

LastManAlive:
I looked over your post again and realized that I mixed up the word "travel" with "gravitate" because there is a typo there. However, there is still a problem with your design. The size of your dart and the size of the breech can be perfectly identical, but if the edge of another dart even gets caught between the rim of the breech and the loading system, you are going to have some major problems with the firing because now there is a bent-up dart that prevents the breech from closing and getting a good seal. That either means that you can't fire, or the pressure that is lost while firing is too little to propel the dart out of the barrel.

Also, I don't know whether you are going to make a true breech-loader or a magazine-fed shotgun, because they are definitely not the same things. PM me a picture and I might be able to understand and help you.



#93838 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 07 November 2006 - 12:01 PM in Homemades

tcorr911:
If you look on the howstuffworks page mentioned in the earliest couple posts, you will see that there is either a bump or a ledge on the carrier that stops the shell from sliding all the way back. That stop is placed carefully in a spot where only one whole shell can be on the carrier at a time. I think this could be the solution, becuase I myself was considering it for simplicity.

P.S.: For all of you out there who are either working on or want to work on a Nerf shotty, P.M. me. If there are enough of us, we might be able to walk each other through the design and construction phases.

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 21 November 2006 - 11:03 AM in Homemades

Flaming Hilt was right when he said to be patient. However, I think I speak for all of the contributors when I say that any models, scale-built or otherwise, are greatly anticipated and appreciated. I might have time to begin a carrier/carrier dog model, or start a removeable receiver this week, but I wouldn't put any money on that.

Commonly Hunted:
I was going to try for 100th post in my own forum, but that would merit reprocussions from Piney for double-posting. (Although this is technically the 100th reply.)

Back on topic:
I am working on a scale-dimension draft of my blueprints on a 2-D CAD program, so I will probably be done with almost all of my design work and detailing by the 17th, accounting for the time I need to take out for homework, school, and studying. I hope to see blueprints from as many other contributors to this topic as possible, so we can all build different, yet hopefully effective, models.



#96982 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 23 December 2006 - 05:01 PM in Homemades

Not bad, Meaker VI. My own work has been delayed until I can find a place that sells cheap brass. I need to make the shells first, and then work from there, since designs of the bolt, mag, and carrier are all dependant on the shell size. As for springs, I think Commonly Hunted used the spring out of one of those cheap plastic Bic mechanical pencils, but then again, I think his shells were PVC, so I'll need something more powerful...



#98096 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 10 January 2007 - 08:07 PM in Homemades

Great work, Meaker VI. For what it is, the prototype is a good guide for testing all of the systems that you'll use to build the actual version of the gun. However, I'd like to see the carrier group, or at least as much of it as possible, in another pic so we can get an idea of what you are doing to make the system work.



#121042 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 24 August 2007 - 08:53 PM in Homemades

I think the ranges will be close to what the SCAR can achieve, but I can't say for sure because I didn't use an AR-15 spring. As for completion, that should be by the end of the month if all goes well.



#101060 Nerf Shotgun

Posted by SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA on 13 March 2007 - 08:27 PM in Homemades

Since I'm not proficient with CAD programs yet, I intend to trace the outline of an airsoft gun that I really like the fit of (I.e. stock length, grip position, and overall length), then modify it to be something machineable with PVC. Then, I'll just insert 1:1 scale drawings of the parts I need so there are no conversions to do. I find this much simpler for my needs.
