#330941 Barrel break ranges

Posted by Apollo441 on 16 June 2013 - 10:53 PM in Modifications

The elite barrel break doesn't get any better ranges than the standard barrel break, although does look nicer.

I love it! Simple effective and could be good for night wars.

#327836 SpyNet Secret Sleeve Shooter

Posted by Apollo441 on 09 March 2013 - 10:15 PM in Modifications

Can you modify the rail to go back further? Because it would be a good back up but looks like it might impede using a primary

#326677 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Apollo441 on 11 February 2013 - 02:15 PM in General Nerf

Honestly it would have been better in say pink blue and purple... like different shells similar to sonic clear and white out... so its like not a stereotypical colour scheme

#326252 Question to all you modders

Posted by Apollo441 on 02 February 2013 - 09:25 AM in General Nerf

I don't that would be all that great. And it would definitely not happen.

People who already have those "vintage" blasters would be upset at the depreciation
The plastic sucks
They do not conform to the ever changing safety standards
Hasbro would have to use a different plastic from what they use now, and thus use the old molds
Most of those blasters were not even designed/engineered under the Hasbro regime. So, that would not work well either. Kenner and Larami (technically, Hasbro acquired the nerf line in 1991, which predates most vintage blasters. however, Kenner and Larami still had most control over the blaster production until like 2000, hence guns like the Crossbow and Splitfire bear the Kenner text and not Hasbro)

It just makes no sense for them to do that. Plus, they do not out-preform (to a great extent) the contemporary blasters. So why would kids buy them? They do not know how "vintage", or valuable they are to us.

I will reinterate my point, emphasis on the word "like" i probably chose bad examples; my point was i would like to see air blasters like the airtech series, and some new spring action blasters that don't require clips.

So my point was airblasters and cool looking blasters like vintage blasters.

#325939 Direct-plunger Longstrike

Posted by Apollo441 on 27 January 2013 - 09:58 PM in Modifications

No offence nine, but the nite strike isnt practical, the plunger tube is way to small.. I would go with trying psyks method.

#325828 Question to all you modders

Posted by Apollo441 on 25 January 2013 - 11:49 PM in General Nerf

They need to bring back vintage blasters like splitfires crossbows and air techs

also what would be a good hit turreted shotguns like the triple shot or doomsayer...

#323800 Softer Tips

Posted by Apollo441 on 21 November 2012 - 11:48 AM in Darts and Barrels

Informer silicon tips hurt, they can leave welts especially from a 3k, I have seen some stefans made with felt tips.

Probably might be the safest bet.

#321806 How do you silence a Nerf blaster?

Posted by Apollo441 on 20 September 2012 - 05:53 AM in Modifications

In australia we use car bog to fill up our nerf guns, or i grab cheap epoxy putty to fill it.

#321239 Elite plungertube draw increase

Posted by Apollo441 on 30 August 2012 - 04:28 AM in Modifications

I thought that ridge was like a buffer, to elimiate the need for plunger padding, yes it would extend the draw but it could shorten the life of the pt.

#319201 N-Strike Elite Stockade Review

Posted by Apollo441 on 25 July 2012 - 02:22 PM in General Nerf

Posted by Apollo441 on 25 July 2012 - 02:15 PM in Modifications

Is the scope useless? Or does it look ok?
