I've always thought of the night-mav near impossible to re-create,but you proved me wrong.
The only thing I think you should really do is change the plunger tube to petg tubing, it wold greatly increase range and make it more clear. Clear is good
Oh and if anyone gets one and doesn't want the foregrip thing, shoot me a PM. My taticool recon looks lonely without it.
Rear-loadable.What's so special about them other that they look longer? The heads also look smaller, more in line with the dart.
screw the blaster!
Look very closely at those darts.
Here's a link http://a3.images22.5...09d6db36d5a.jpg
They seem to be basically streamlines with a whistler head.
The instructions on the gun show that it will be rear loading. This kinda sucks, you can't use normal stock darts. On the other hand you might be able to use stefans without removing the AR's. I'm not sure how the posts on the AR's would be.
This is why Humans were made to exceed over the rest of the Animal Kingdom
If you gonna make this you might as well just shove some taggers down the barrel of a 12-gauge...
Seriously guys, explosives and Nerf do not mix.
If you do plan to do anything like this just be careful. We don't need any dead nerfers lying around.
Chances are with a hornet/magstrike pump you could get a few more pumps but then again I don't know how strong the CPVC tank will be. But your ranges aren't bad at all.
It gets hard to pump at 6 or so pumps, and maxes out after 8 pumps.
Have you thought of using PETG for the barrel? Unless CPVC gives you a loose fit chances are you could get better ranges with PETG.
The super glue should be more then enough, have you ever tried to blow into a piece of CPVC with an endcap on it? Its hard, the super glue really just keeps it attached.
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.
But on topic, this looks sick! I was waiting for the write up since I saw this in the Paint Job thread.
For keeping the tubing internal, which in my mind is near essential if you want to actually use this outside, right after the tee you could use a right angle down then another right angle towards the center leaving the endcaps right inside the shell!
It is just an idea, but if you ever make another..
Another question, how many times do you pump it? How many pumps does it get hard to pump at? Its hard to get max pressure with a 3k pump. Oh and there was a typo when you described what pump you used.
Thats what I think, so we we could just unscrew the hinge CPVC it and use it like that.
But it looks like it uses the whistler darts, which have a tip larger than the body. So I'm wondering how you rear-load those things as well.
EDIT: At this point, my guess is that you simply break open the barrels and then load the darts into the rear of the gun. The front barrels are likely only for show/some semblance of accuracy. Which really would be fairly pointless, IMO.
I have an odd habit of naming everything of sentimental value to me normal names.
Mods Done: Nothing too special, DT3 spring, level 4 reinforcements, reinforced plunger rod, replaced plunger tube. And an amazing seal, with the help of Cheesypiza001. I kept the stock plunger rod, catch, and trigger because I didn't want my Crossbow to be a Plus-Bow in a shell.
Integrations: I really don't have the need for any, with the use of a breech the ROF is enough to hold people off, and I wanted to keep the shell as stock and clean as possible.
Comments: I bought this a while back, for a steal if I may add, when I got it it wasn't in working condition. So I nurtured her to health again. I had to re-do the plunger rod reinforcements and the skirt needed some work, and to add to the performance replaced the plunger tube and gave it a "universal coupler". The range is enough, and the gun is easy to aim and fire so its pretty damn accurate. Over all I love this gun, its amazing knowing that this gun is my age.. weird right?
I rather just use a 12 round super clip and not have to get my huge ass clip stuck on everything I walk by. Have you found a way to hold more on you then just in the blaster?
I still like the classic 6 round clips better.
Although I prefer when they use guns, the gun tests have too much human error evolved. Like in the IRA vs The Spetnaz the IRA guy wasn't a trained gunman, yet he had to do the handgun "challenge".
I find that most of the gun testing rather stupid, but to see a guy wail on a side of beef is awesome
I also thought the most recent one was bullshit, not the actual win but what guns they used. I don't understand why the SS used early WWII guns. I think the main face off should of been the STG 44/ MP 43 vs the Ak-47.
It makes no sence.
And how does the Pungi sticks have anything on a flame thrower...
Games- A lot. I'm up for CoD4 or MW2, skate 2, MAG (I need real teammates), Burnout and I have GameFly so I just get games at my will
I'm happy this is going to get back up and running.
And if you fell like adding me as a PSN friend say who you are and they you are from NH please.
Yea I'm not good for this weekend, Damn I wish I was old enough to drive...
I won't know until tomorrow if I will definitely be coming. (Still trying to get a ride.)
If I do show up it will be with one or two new players.
Attendance currently looks like...
"High Maybe": 5-7
At the moment we have a maximum of 8 people which is good, but a few more would be nice.
Does anyone still attending know where this place is?
Personally I think the rules are a bit tight, if you can hit a target the size of a human at 100 feet you are amazing at aiming, but most of us can't so I don't think having a gun that can shoot over 100 feet should be a problem, and the same thing with pistols that shoot over 60.
or anything that shoots well over 100 feet. Only slug and stock darts alowed. Don't be a douchebag.
At least one springer pistol that doesnt shoot over about 60 ft
4:20? Is this a variation of 3:15? Or are you just excited for April 4th?
I'm also curious about the red LongShot, is it part of the Red Strike thing? And is that ammo belt home made as well? Where do you live? I've seen things about nerf making ammo belts.
