Never mind, already addressed.
KaptainKrazy - Lucky for you, I have one that you can borrow. Provided you actually show. Bring a pvc stub as well.
DX - Pick up Lucy while you're at it. Enjoy your soon to be trip down.
It's gonna be muddy and most likely humid. Please try to get there around 9:45 so we can begin as soon as possible.
Don't worry, I'm actually coming. Is it okay if I show up at around 10:00-10:15?
It's not that they have made a desicion yet, it's just that I don' know how to approach them about it. I'm guessing I'll only have one shot at it.
You should respect your parent's decision. You are living in their house so you just have to accept whatever they decide.
If you have patience and a square needle file, you can nest your 17/32 brass inside the barrel. This way you don't have that chunk of brass sticking out and you don't have to alter the orange front piece.
There's a little over 2.5 inches in there, gooped and waiting to be cut.
I just filed out the inside while turning the barrel in my other hand. It would have been easier if I had some sort of really long sanding attachment for my Dremel. If I ever do this again I might try gluing some sandpaper to a dowel.
I did nest the brass in the stock barrel; I just made my brass longer than the stock one. I don't see your point.
@Kaptain Krazy I really don't understand what the difference in 5 minutes is. There were more out of state Nerfers at last Saturday's war than there were in state nerfers.
When I google mapped it, it said that there was an 30 minute difference. Strange.
He who is making a definitive guide to posting pictures could not even post them horizontally? I'm disappointed...but I do agree this is important for some users.
This thread would be a lot more helpful if there were instructions for how to rotate images before you post them.
There is a way... I guess I probabaly should have done that. I will fix that soon.
-- iPad, iTouch, or iPhone
-- Camera Connection Kit (http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_e_1)
-- Photobucket for iPad, or iTouch/iPhone
-- Wifi Connection
Okay, if your device doesn't have a built in camera, or you want high quality images, you'll need one of these doodads. Basically, it's a card reader that attaches to the 32 pin connecter on the bottom of apple devices.($3.51 from Amazon)
Download your Photobucket app, for whatever device you're using. I use an iPad, so I download the iPad version.
(screenshots are sideways, sorry about that)
Connect your card reader, and your camera to said card reader.
Open Apples preinstalled Photos app. (give it a second to load)
If you see photos with green checkmarks, that means that it has been already imported. Tap the photos you want to be imported, and they will be checked blue.
Now click import. A window will drop down, giving you two options. Import all or just selected. Choose selected (unless you want all of your photos imported)
Let it finish. When it's done, it will ask you wether or not you want to keep the imported photos. I chose yes. Now go open your photo bucket app.
You will be sent to the homepage. Click my albums, on the bottom of the screen.
Now click that arrow at the top of the screen.
Then just select the photos you want to upload, and wait for it to finish.
Done! Now all you have to do is add it to your post. Start by clicking on the photo you want.
Now click the chain link at the top.
NerfHaven uses IMG code, so click on that option. It will say it is copied to you clipboard.
Now just click paste when doing your writeup, and boom. You have pictures.
(This entire writeup was done on my iPad)
Comments? Questions? Flames?
The Sharp Shot is the most abysmal performer I have amongst my Nerf blasters. I cannot help but chuckle when the darts start to fall right out of the barrel. The size and decent ergonomics are a plus for me though.
Interesting take on it, and very nice ranges. Nice illustrative pics too. I would smooth & port the plunger a bit more for added airflow.
I also suggest re-enforcing the wall that is just before the catch. When I added a heavy spring to one I did for a friend, the wall broke. He fixed that problem by running a bolt though the blaster. Not the cleanest, but it was effective at what It did.
I would suggest using epoxy puddy though, before it breaks.
If this is using only a NF spring, you may just want to add a stronger aftermarket spring. Don't go crazy though, this is still a reverse plunger.
Even if you don't upgrade the spring further, it is a good idea to carry out some of the aforementioned reinforcements, pad the plunger, and add epoxy putty in the area of the shell behind the spring to prevent deformation of the plastic.
All great ideas. I will update the writeup as soon as I can.
Are you sure that is a Nightfinder spring? In my modding of this gun, a maverick spring barely fit. Also, that is not a Nightfinder o-ring, it is a maverick o-ring.
Anyways, nice mod.
Maverick springs are actually smaller than an NF spring. And now that I think about it, it might actually be a maverick o-ring.
--3 inches of 17/32 Brass
--Replacment Spring (I used a Nite Finder, not optimal, but it's what I had on hand)
--Nite Finder O-Ring (Or the equivalent)
--Dremel With Fine Grit Sanding Drum
--Silicon Sealent (OPTIONAL)
--Piece of Plastic Tubing That Fits Securely Over Brass (OPTIONAL)
Start by unscrewing your blaster:
Remove these side panels:
Get your replacement spring. Stock spring is on the right, Nitefinder is on left. Set it aside for now.
If you don't have a replacement spring, putting a few nickels behind the stock spring will give it a boost
If your replacement spring is pretty powerful, consider replacing the catch.
Pull the plunger assembly out. Slip your NF o-ring on with the stock ring.
Drill out the AR. I don't have a picture of it before, but I'm sure you can figure it out
Time to do the barrel replacement. Cut your 3 inches of brass.
Smear a bit of hot glue on the brass, and nest it inside the stock barrel.
The stock orange tips opening is to narrow for the brass to fit through. Using your Dremel, sand the opening until the brass fits snugly inside.
Pad the plunger head. I suggest this writeup (hint hint nudge nudge): http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=22201
Now lube that sucker up, and youre ready to resemble.
Internals before reassembly.
(Nearly) Finished Product.
I didn't like the way the brass was exposed, so I found a small section of plastic tube,
And glued it on over the brass.
Ranges: Suprising. 50 to 60 feet. A nice improvement over stock ranges.
UPDATE: did some testing, and found out that it vacuum loads darts. How about that?
Questions? Comments? Flames?
Just a quick question...
If you can use masking tape to prevent drips / spills / overflowing, why dont you wrap the diameter of the plunger head with masking tape first, then apply the silicone?
I'm just thinking that by doing so, you can effectively use the masking tape as a sort of "wall" to keep the silicone in a neat-o circular shape.
I may be wrong though.
Just a personal preference. The silicone isn't very liquidy, so there isn't much of a chance that it will ooze over the edges immediately. I just put the masking tape there to to stop it it in case it falls over or something later; it's easier to get the silicon into shape without the masking tape dam.
