#278193 Splitfire/2k Turret Modification!

Posted by MindWarrior on 21 June 2010 - 12:03 PM in Modifications

So thats what meant on the IRC. That things pretty amazing. And for reload time, this things a secondary, no need to use it for more than the 4 shots provided unless your primary craps.

#278000 The Ak-47 Equivalent?

Posted by MindWarrior on 18 June 2010 - 02:47 PM in General Nerf

We'll, the U3 claim their hopper'd hamps have ranges up to 100 feet, and those are the basic models. Hamps are cheap to make, very easy to make and ROF is ridiculously good for its range and price.One pump can send 2-3 darts down at your target

#277790 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by MindWarrior on 15 June 2010 - 09:54 AM in Homemades

I know your using a hamp, but is there any really significant range decrease (like 20-30 feet) by using such an absurdly large hopper clip? Either way, that thing looks like it can kick major ass in any war,

#277788 Bike Pump Fittings?

Posted by MindWarrior on 15 June 2010 - 09:29 AM in Modifications

Bah, I've seen Zorn's BBBB Writeup with the bike pump, what did he do? I'm planning on using attatching some 1/4 OD Vinyl tubing with super glue at the tip to attatch it to the pump, and then use goob to secure and filli it in the hole.

#277727 Homemade At2k Tank

Posted by MindWarrior on 14 June 2010 - 03:31 PM in Homemades

Real 2k tanks don't have one, so why should this? You would just not plug whatever pump you are using.

I think that This tank is a lot sturdier than the real thing, meaning that higher pressures could be made and may make it non-war legal.

#277708 Homemade At2k Tank

Posted by MindWarrior on 14 June 2010 - 11:36 AM in Homemades

The turret, I suspect would be far more expensive to pruduce, like 30$~ at least, I suspect. Would there be any failsafe to prevent over pressure to be war legal?

#277679 Homemade At2k Tank

Posted by MindWarrior on 14 June 2010 - 12:04 AM in Homemades

Very, Very nice. Now machine an at2k turret for this.

#277408 Rtp, Pump Action Homemade.

Posted by MindWarrior on 10 June 2010 - 11:03 PM in Homemades

How much would it cost in materials to machine one or two?

#277280 Deluge Tanks Doubleshot Mod

Posted by MindWarrior on 09 June 2010 - 04:41 PM in Modifications

That looks great! But I think you'll find it easier to pump it to higher pressures if you shorten your CPVC extensions. Other than that it looks almost like something from start trek:

EDIT: I'll say right now that Hot glue is NOT a good sealant, I suggest that some more super glue to be used, or plumbers goop over the hot glue to ensure that no air escapes.

#277218 Bike Pump Fittings?

Posted by MindWarrior on 09 June 2010 - 12:37 AM in Modifications

I've tried wrapping Etape around some 1/4 OD vinyl tubing and gooping it to a previous bike pump....Wasn't successful.

#277199 Bike Pump Fittings?

Posted by MindWarrior on 08 June 2010 - 09:13 PM in Modifications

#277185 Bike Pump Fittings?

Posted by MindWarrior on 08 June 2010 - 05:52 PM in Modifications

So I got a bike pump:
The bike pump
Product description: 6063 aluminum barrel with two tone T handle for better grip. 7" alloy barrel with dual action pumping for higher efficiency. Reversible Schrader/Presta thumblock. 120 psi.

I was wondering if there are any specific brass fittings that can be used on this pump for 1/4 or 3/16 ID vinyl tubing?

EDIT: Sorry, Meant 1/4 Outer diamter and 1/8 Inner diameter.

#276632 Semi-auto Shotgun

Posted by MindWarrior on 02 June 2010 - 01:31 AM in Homemades

One question: How the hell do you hold it? Do you hold it with the Manual plunger over your shoulder, or under it?

Happy B-day Split! Now shove a plusbow in some cake!

#276349 Shot Blast Airtank

Posted by MindWarrior on 29 May 2010 - 03:32 PM in Modifications

Another question then, Whats the air capacity of the shot blast compared to the Mega missile's? I have a design that Only the shot blast airtank can do, due to its air opening on the edge of the tank instaed of being centered. Hows the opening, compare to a mega Missile?

#276222 Shot Blast Airtank

Posted by MindWarrior on 28 May 2010 - 02:59 AM in Modifications

Does anybody know if theres any other water gun with an air tank thats has a similar design to a quick blast/super soaker wars air tank but smaller?

#275299 Angel Breech Catching Issue

Posted by MindWarrior on 19 May 2010 - 12:18 PM in Modifications

Check to see if the boltsled is cracked, that might be the cause, Unlikely, but its always good to check since your opening your LS anyways.
EDIT: For what SGnerf said above me, you could also reinforce your boltsled to prevent bending, I've seen some people use pieces from a coat hanger or Carbon fiber to reinforce them.

#274552 At3k Singled Crayola Barrel

#274187 Has Anyone Considered Making/using Sights?

Posted by MindWarrior on 06 May 2010 - 05:35 PM in Modifications

Many don't because nerf is such a close range game that sights just don't seem necessary. Many hits are in the 50-80 range sometimes closer and occasionally farther. Just a line of sight down the barrel has been proven sufficient in the place of sights. But hey, if you like sights, use em.

#272640 The At2k Turret "gear"

Posted by MindWarrior on 18 April 2010 - 11:15 PM in Modifications

Just curious to know if there's actually an "Industrial"(Meaning that I can find it in a hardware store/site) version of that gear inside the AT2k Turret.
Pics (taken from RyanMc#s rearloading AT2K Thread:

Its the center gear between the barrel stubs with a wavy-like pattern.

Let's get this over with: The system using the CS-18 will be reverse plunger.

#272619 Inverse Plunger Tube Reinforcement

Posted by MindWarrior on 18 April 2010 - 08:26 PM in Modifications

Just when I destroy my recon. Very nice, and it's cheaper than an aluminum plunger tube. What range are you getting on your beefed up deploy?

#272417 Dart Door V2

Posted by MindWarrior on 16 April 2010 - 07:20 PM in Darts and Barrels

I know this may start to sound redundant, but have you placed your hand over the barrel to see if the plunger head still traveled?

#272327 Dart Door V2

Posted by MindWarrior on 15 April 2010 - 04:39 PM in Darts and Barrels

Does the flap feel like it would warp enough to be unusable?

#272082 Salem State Nerf Game

Can't make this one, but will there be a summer game?

#272076 My 2010 Hiatus

Posted by MindWarrior on 13 April 2010 - 01:29 PM in Off Topic

I'm sure some of us will miss seeing the MkIII more than you, which might possibly include me......
Joking aside, I hope you get back to speed by 2011. Get well soon!

I triple-dog-fucking-dare you to nest a [k26], [k25] and k19 spring in that thing.

#270796 Intro To Solvent Welding Plastic

Posted by MindWarrior on 30 March 2010 - 05:06 PM in Homemades

I have the same stuff Tantum has, would that work for connecting vinyl tubing to an airtank at good pressures?

#270559 Magstrike Air Compressor Mod

Posted by MindWarrior on 28 March 2010 - 01:31 PM in Modifications

Holy crap, must be a bit heavy, but DANG that things gonna rock on any indoor war you have, unless its in a stadium.

#270298 At3k Tank Replacement

Posted by MindWarrior on 25 March 2010 - 02:54 PM in General Nerf

The AT3K can easily fit a small bladder in the rear cylindrical "stock" on the back of the gun. I've done it to one of mine. A cut down RF20 or Magstrike bladder will work, but you must band it heavily or you won't get very good ranges, 70' at best.

To make sure the air doesn't leak out all at once, you'll have to limit it somehow or put a valve in between the tank and bladder. The RF20 / Magstrike trigger works. I wanted it to refill "automatically" so I plugged the air output on the bladder with epoxy, and then poked a needle through it before it hardened. The result was an airtank that refilled in about 2-3 seconds, and the cool part is the liquid gauge shows when it is full.

Be aware that you won't be able to get all six shots off unless you lengthen the back stock somehow. I glued two AT3K stocks together to lengthen the chamber and put an entire RF20 bladder in there. I can hold 9 shots now but it takes like 50 pumps.

Have you tried using dual action pumps? Should cut your number of pumps down quite a bit a, You can definitely fit a pump like that in an At3K.

#269728 Magstrike Problem

Theres probably something that was misaligned, CHeck check and triple check~

#269511 Nf Plunger Assembly Problem

Posted by MindWarrior on 18 March 2010 - 11:29 AM in Modifications

The boiling hot water tactic should work, just be sure to leave it in there for a max of 30 seconds and use pliers to rip it of from the top, don't try bending the top, just a direct vertical pull should do it. If all else fails hough, piper cutters on the seam should get the top piece of, then its a matter of drilling/Dremeling to increase airflow.

#268824 Pull Back Recon

Posted by MindWarrior on 11 March 2010 - 01:01 AM in Modifications

So, where is the breech? In those pictures, I'm not seeing anywhere for the dart to enter the barrel. Maybe I'm blind?

Have a sizzlin' day,

He coupler'ed the recon.
