#295839 Japanese Earthquake/tsunami

Posted by sputnik on 11 March 2011 - 09:09 PM in Off Topic

I heard they are really shaking things up in Japan.



Yeah, Dugtrio used Earthquake. It was super effective.



#295768 Nuthead Darts

Posted by sputnik on 11 March 2011 - 01:33 AM in Darts and Barrels

So Taerkitty sent me some samples to test out.
In 14" CPVC, with a PumpBow, I couldn't hit a doorway 30' away due to dart spiraling out of control.
With thickwall PETG, and a 4B, I had the same issue, out of control spiraling.
Were they well made? Sure, cool idea, but keeping the glue tip centered in the foam is nigh impossible.
I even removed the nuthead after the dart ripped (after 3 shots hitting skin, I might add) and put in on my foam, using medium wall petg and a PumpBow again. Another spiral, this time cracking the head.

They are simply not heavy/aerodynamic enough to work well with powerful guns.
The nuthead was just barely thicker than the foam, making easy loading into barrels difficult.
The pain test was obvious, I was able to tell the difference between these and slugs everytime, blindfolded.

Slugs are extremely simple to make, and very inexpensive. Plus they work in hoppers. These do not.

I don't hate the idea of new innovative dart-making, but this isn't the best way.



#295438 Speedloader Turret Tutorial

Posted by sputnik on 06 March 2011 - 02:31 AM in Modifications

Not everyone can access Youtube.
Many work computers block it, therefore pictures are the preferred method of descriptions.

Nice work though.

#295091 The Ohio Revolution

Posted by sputnik on 26 February 2011 - 11:34 AM in Nerf Wars

#294619 Rpmbnb! Updated With More Goodies!

Posted by sputnik on 17 February 2011 - 12:00 PM in Homemades

I think it's pretty awesome. I hope you do the coolest shit you can come up with. Props with doing something original and unseen.

That said, there's no denying that it'd be difficult/expensive for the rest of the community to replicate, much like Kane's blasters with milled and lathed and solid aluminum parts.



Hehe.



Way cool SorrowX.

When you get the chance, you should put the turret plans up too.



#294603 The Ohio Revolution

Posted by sputnik on 16 February 2011 - 10:57 PM in Nerf Wars

Nerf Mafia is an idiot and banned from this war.
tl;dr

I fully support this.



#294584 Barrel Material For Stock Micros

Posted by sputnik on 16 February 2011 - 06:23 PM in Modifications

If you ream the inside lip of the CPVC out, they slide in easier.



#294582 Barrel Material For Stock Micros

Posted by sputnik on 16 February 2011 - 06:17 PM in Modifications

Replace it, CPVC and 17/32 brass work very well on stock darts.

#294133 Slugs And Domes And Taggers, Oh My!

Posted by sputnik on 07 February 2011 - 11:04 PM in General Nerf

To be honest, I agree with boisie.
Not everyone has access to the materials required for Slug darts, it doesn't even out the field, and it doesn't make anything safer.

Get over the fact that it might hurt.
This is an impact based hobby, its gonna have some sting to it.
Don't mandate a kind of dart that less than half the field can make.
That will cut as many people out as the "scary" dome darts would turn away.

Just my (irritated) 2 cents.

#229864 Longshot With Pas

Posted by sputnik on 12 May 2009 - 06:42 PM in Modifications

This looks great! The only problem is that it is really bulky. Mainly an integration is a primary with a sidearm, but you integrated 2 primaries, but shotgunned one of them so it acts more-or-less as a sidearm, so it must be heavy, and bulky. Personally I think it is unnecessary to have 2 primaries, but have a primary and a sidearm.




This guy took my avatar!


Great job OP!
