#33150 Modded Titan!

Posted by MAC on 04 August 2004 - 08:40 PM in Modifications

You are all right about the volume of air tank ratio to pressure and barrel length, thats why we are testing it with different size barrels. 12", believe it or not, is too long with the air tubing/pvc combo. So we made that same kind of barrel, only shortened it to just a little more than 8". This works better (accurate-wise and distance-wise) than 6 and 12. Also during experimenting, we found that a 12" 17/32 size brass barrel works extremely well. Since we only had one foot of the brass, and we always have trouble getting a hold of it, we decided to glue a coupler onto the side of the gun to hold the brass (which is encased in PVC). So I would probably start a war with the 8 incher air tube barrels, then when I need a loser rifle and am safely away from other people, i can switch to the brass.

As for pumping, it does take several pumps to make it shoot well, so if u like quick firing guns, I wouldn't use the titan. But, it only takes 15 or so pumps to make the air gauge (which seems to work) display as "full". Now full to the nerf people, who are obsessed with safety, is probably alot less than the actual tank can hold. With more testing, we'll post more results with different amount of pumps.

Here are some new pictures of it with its barrels. By the way, the 8 inch air tubing barrels have 4 instead of 3 now. It looks cooler and lowers the reload time a bit.


#33115 Modded Titan!

Posted by MAC on 04 August 2004 - 01:49 PM in Modifications

yea we figured that, so we just made four 12" barrels to replace the three 6" ones.

The barrels are still drying from the plumbers goop, so we have not tested them yet.

#33109 Modded Titan!

Posted by MAC on 04 August 2004 - 01:10 PM in Modifications

Here are some internal pics.
As for pumping, it only takes 5 seconds to do 20 pumps. Its very easy to pump.

To be specific about the internals:

There is a safety mechanism on both triggers involving small metal bb's that roll on a track. When the gun is angled upwards too much, the ball rolls away from the the trigger and the trigger can't be pulled all the way.

The air tank is massive, so it can probably hold a lot more pumps than 20, but 20 is the most we've tried so far.

The plunger pushes air into two different tubes, one leading to the main air tank to fire the titan, and one leading to the bottom of the handle. If the Hornet is attatched at the bottom, the tube at the bottom of the handle becomes open and air can pass through it into the hornet. But if you pump 20 times with the hornet attatched, only half the air will go to each one, so basically 20 pumps = 10 pumps.

Also, the plunger is surprisingly small compared to the tube that its encased in, i guess its just for looks on the outside.


#33093 Modded Titan!

Posted by MAC on 04 August 2004 - 08:46 AM in Modifications

Ok now that its light outside, I got some ranges.
These ranges are aprox. I could not get to the exact foot.

20 pumps slightly angled: 140
20 pumps level: 110

10 pumps slightly angled: 95
10 pumps level: 80

As for internal pics.....i might be able to get some. The only problem is that the barrel is plumbers gooped on, so i might not be able to get it open. Dave did most of the glueing/barrel putting on, so when he comes over ill ask him to take it apart to get an internal pic.

#33049 Modded Titan!

Posted by MAC on 03 August 2004 - 09:21 PM in Modifications

For all who complained about the philly guys guns being strong, don't worry, now their even stronger.....

The titan we recieved at APOC is now finished being modified, and it's nasty.

Me and Dave worked on it when we got home from the war and now its probably the strongest gun we have, yes stronger than at2000 brassed.

We plugged the air restrictor on the massive plunger and cut the original barrel down to about 2 inches. We put a small piece of random piping into the stub of the barrel after prying out that air restrictor and put a 1/2 inch coupler on that. Its all held together with a bunch of plumbers goop. For the actual barrel we used three 6" pvc barrels with airline tubing inside them. I dont think anyone really uses this type of barrel, we just kinda made it up and it fits micros really well. (Dont worry Talio, we made some better micros.) The titan came with a little sight ontop, which we cut open and fitted a laser sight onto, which actually works when aimed right since the top is perfectly flat and level with the barrel. we also managed to keep its ability to attatch to the other 2 guns in the set, which we will soon mod.

dave did most of it because he is the man
(he typed this)

The philly guys can probably make it, thats if we are wanted there, considering everyone is bitching about our brassed weapons.

Posted by MAC on 16 July 2004 - 12:51 PM in Nerf Wars

I have a deffinate yes from 2 of the philly guys besides me, and possibly more might come.

#29533 Nj Apoc '04

Posted by MAC on 25 June 2004 - 11:13 AM in Nerf Wars

The philly guys can probably make any of the dates, but i have to check with all of them. I was kinda worried when i checked map quest and it said that it was a 2 hour drive from my house. I then checked the drive from my house down the shore in ocean city, and it was only a 40 min. drive, so probably all the guys will come down to my shore house the day before, and we can drive up from there.

#28458 East Coast War

Posted by MAC on 14 June 2004 - 09:50 AM in Nerf Wars

From all the phily guys: It was the first time we nerfed with otherpeople besides ourselves, and we had an amazing time. I wish we had stayed longer, but the time we were there was great. We hope to go to another war some time.
Maby we could hold a war at the park near our house...

Thanx all

#28380 Domination Nj

Posted by MAC on 12 June 2004 - 08:31 PM in Nerf Wars

The philly boys can most likely make the 25, but cannot make the 17 or 18th.

I dont see what hasbro can do about guns that it no longer makes that broke, or guns that lanard makes.

#27665 East Coast War

Posted by MAC on 03 June 2004 - 08:08 PM in Nerf Wars

Wow that looks real phat. Just a quick question, how much money do we need to bring for the field, and should we bring a bag lunch or are we going somewhere to eat?

#26334 East Coast War

Posted by MAC on 16 May 2004 - 06:15 PM in Nerf Wars

Yooo talio, I can probably make it, and bring along 4 or 5 more people. The only problem is that we all use eather AT's or SM 1500 brassed micros, and I dont want to get there and find out that my gun is to powerful.

#24456 How Many Max Pumps For At2k

Posted by MAC on 18 April 2004 - 10:50 AM in Modifications

I pump mine about 5 times

#23932 My Max Shot Is Cracking Up

Posted by MAC on 10 April 2004 - 07:01 PM in Modifications

Wow the exact thing happened to mine. I hotglued it back on then loaded it up with ductape and it worked fine. Then like a month later the cocking handle broke where it pulls up the white thing in the gun, and i had to trash it. I think the plastic of the maxshot is very cheap.

#23928 Bean Or Hung?

Posted by MAC on 10 April 2004 - 06:46 PM in Off Topic

Hold on one second. I have been reading all these newb posts, and one thing is pissing me off. A mod posts right after the newb and tells him how useless his post is and to leave. Instantly all the semi-newbs on this site join the bandwagon and think they are cool by telling the newb exactly wat the mod already said, and theirfore creating more useless posts. ITs just gay that if Vac had said that it was a cool pole, and made a positive comment, all the semi-newbs that feel its cool to make useless post hammering some guy would have completely agreed, and all voted in the pole.

#21388 New Barrel Type Good Results

Posted by MAC on 15 March 2004 - 09:23 PM in Modifications

HAHA yea I actually ductaped up the window, and since it was in the basement only my dad has seen it so far, and he wasnt very angry.

#21383 New Barrel Type Good Results

Posted by MAC on 15 March 2004 - 08:07 PM in Modifications

I purchesed some 1/2 inch clear airline tubeing, and it fit tightly into 1/2inch pvc that straightened it out. I put a 6 inch piece onto an at2000, and i am getting amazing results. It shoots micros almost 120 feet, with great voicity. From about 40 feet away, it broak through a glass window :cry:

Ill try to post pics soon

#21324 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 14 March 2004 - 07:45 PM in Off Topic

Very good news for me.
Suprisingly, We are now allowed to play nerf again!

What we did was make a new type of dart, that after putting in a slingshot ammo, you put into it a pom-pom. This really soften's the impact. After makeing the dart, we brought it to our parents and with lots of pleading we were able to convince them that the darts are safer, and that we would be much more carful.

#20879 Most Interesting 1500 Break I've Seen

Posted by MAC on 07 March 2004 - 06:55 PM in Modifications

hey the same thing happened with one of my sm 1500. All i did was stick some hot glue onto the end that i had left and quickly put it down into the pump. After it dried i pulled both pieces out.

#20869 Lanard Blast Bazooka

Posted by MAC on 07 March 2004 - 05:07 PM in General Nerf

does anyone know how to plug the air release on this gun?
Do you have to cut off the whole back of it?

#20413 The Lglf Official Guide To Stefan Making

Posted by MAC on 01 March 2004 - 06:18 PM in Articles

Instead of straighing your stefans for 2-3 weeks, why dont you just put them into the dryer for 4 minuts. That works for me.

#20291 At2k Pumps

Posted by MAC on 29 February 2004 - 05:19 PM in General Nerf

hey the same thing happened to me. You are pumping it to much, and when you pull hte triger back it does not allow all the air to come out. 5 pumps is more than enough.

#19306 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 18 February 2004 - 06:00 PM in Off Topic

Sorry to say it, but it's truly your fault for the whole situation. I'm not saying that you didn't, but you really should've emphasized towards your friends that Nerf aren't little toys once they're modified for performance.

This isnt the first time they have all played. We play almost every weekend, and are usually extra carful. I dont know what the kid was thinking when he decided to shoot the gun. Before he shot that kids eye he was usually respectful of the dangers of modified nerf guns.

#19230 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 17 February 2004 - 05:23 PM in Off Topic

Here is exactly wat happened...or what everyone told me since when the kid got shot I was down my basement grabing more ammo.
The only warning in advance i had was the ear splitting scream from a 12 year old shot in the eye.
They were all takeing a brake and eating some chips, and one of the kids was out looking for stefans, and when he found one, loaded it in the maxshot he was using. He then saw the 12 year old sitting on a curb eating chips. He thought that it would be funny to shoot him in the stomach while he was sitting there :wacko:
He did not take into consideration that his eye protection was off. The reason he got hit in the eye, was the exact moment the gun was shot, the 12 year old bent down. (wierd timeing)

Good news sorta....I managed to divert my parents away from my guns long enough for their anger to subside. Now instead of saying they are going to throw them out, they say i can only use them by myself, which isnt very fun, but at least ill be able to mod sum guns.

I secreatly called all my sane nerf friends, and we all agreed to try to slowly start nerfing again when summer starts. Right now were gonna let things cool down, and when summer starts tell our parents that were going to start nerf wars again, but only with kids old enough and we will tell them we will only nerf with adult supervision if they care that much.

#19166 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 16 February 2004 - 07:46 PM in Off Topic

It was a maxshot with a micro stefan that had a 1/4 slingshot ammo in it wit hotglue over the top. they were probably about 30 feet apart.

#19164 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 16 February 2004 - 07:39 PM in Off Topic

it wasnt my brother who got shot it was my friends brother

#19161 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 16 February 2004 - 07:19 PM in Off Topic

Yea im real depressed right now :(

The problems are that they were all my guns, so my parents feel responsable,

and also, even if i could convince my parents to let me nerf again (which i probably wont be able to do) all my other friends are also banned from nerfing, so i would have no one to nerf with.

The thing is, none of our parents really liked nerf to begin with, so they were just looking for an excuse to make us stop, and they jumped on this oppurtunity :(

#19150 Im Done Nerfing :(

Posted by MAC on 16 February 2004 - 06:09 PM in Off Topic

Today i was having a nerf war around my house, and my friends little brother got shot in the eye while he was taking a brake and had his eye protection off. He had to go to the hospital, and his eye is extreamly swolen, and he must stay in bed for a week and not move his eye.
My parents and his parents are extreamly mad, and my parents said i can never nerf agian, and they are going to throw out all my guns. The thing is that it wasnt even me who shot him, it was my friend, who thought it would be funny to shoot him in the stomach, but missed and hit his eye.

now i dont know wat to do.

#18993 Pom-pom Stefans

Posted by MAC on 14 February 2004 - 10:22 AM in General Nerf

I made a new bullet that flies just as far as my normal stefans, and it dosnt hurt anywhere near as much.
I got a small pom pom, and on the back of it i glued a 1/4 slingshot ammo. I then made a large hole in one tip of the stefan, and glued the pompom and slingshot ammo into it. It does not hurt nearly as bad as a normal stefan, and it flies just as far. Ill try to post pics later today.

Has anyone else done this before?

Edit...the new darts still hurt, but not nearly as bad as others do.

Posted by MAC on 07 February 2004 - 05:16 PM in Nerf Wars

Hey I live about 20 min outside of philli, and i have about 6 other people who I nerf with a lot. My friends dad owns a construction company, and he just bought a big development. Their are some open lots with just wood houses that were allowed to nerf at.

#16689 Multi Barrel 750

Posted by MAC on 19 January 2004 - 05:30 PM in Modifications

I had a random Air Tech 2000 barrel sitting around, so i decieded to put it onto my sm 750 pistol to increase its ROF. With some 17/32 brass, it gets about 70-80, and its accurate, however their is is a small problem. The trigger is extreamly hard to pull, so its hard to get a quick shot off. I tried the BIC pen trigger pull mod, but it did not help very much. Has anyone else had this problem with their 750, and what can i do. Thanx

#16125 Thumb Tack Tip Stefans

Posted by MAC on 10 January 2004 - 03:42 PM in Homemades

They are the only kind i make since i can get tacks much easier than fish weights or bb's

They dont hurt that much more than the others, but of course you dont stick the pointy end of the tack out or you would puncture someone's skin.

#15522 Sm 5000 Help

Posted by MAC on 02 January 2004 - 06:31 PM in Modifications

I did the SM 5000 barrel relocation mod, and when i shortened the air tubeing, it now leaks from the connection when I pump it. What should I use to get an air tight seal. My hot glue is not working. I've heard plumbers goop is good. Is it sold at a local hardware store, or are their better types of airtight glues?

#13504 Nerf Hq?

Chill dude he is just asking a question.
