This is what we will be modding.
Here are the tools required for this mod,
and for those of you who want to know the exact brand of grease I use,
First step, take out all the screws as seen here,
Next, place all the screws (which are all the same size) along with your NStrike rail attachment piece somewhere safe,
This is what your blaster should look like when it is open and all of the outer screws have been removed.
Next, pop the internals out of the shell and remove the three screws that hold the hammer and trigger in place,
Slide out the hammer assembly carefully,
Set the hammer assembly aside for now, we want to focus on the Air Restricter.
Take the rest of your internals and flip them over to the other side, you should see what look like little I beams holding in the plunger tube to the "frame".
Just gently pry the frame away from the plunger tube with your hands until you can wiggle the plunger tube free. Now look down the back of the plunger tube, you should see three white pegs that hold a little plate in the front of the tube, that is the base of the Air Restricter.
Take your pair of needle nose pliers and very carefully pry and twist those pegs. Then pull them out carefully, not to scratch the plunger tube.
Make sure to pull the gunk and orange peg in the front of the plunger tube out as well.
Reassemble the plunger tube into the frame.
Now its time to work with the plunger assembly
Wipe off the factory lube and apply a thin coat of your own, this is to make sure you get a good air seal.
Getting the trigger back in place is a pain if you haven't done it before.
Once the plunger assembly is back in to its original spot, you need to make sure it is all the way forward and the trigger spring is in this position.
You need to line up the smaller hole on the trigger with this spring for it to work correctly.
Once that is in now its time to work on the turret. Take your pair of pliers and twist on the back of the dart pegs and rip them out.
Next you want to take your knife and VERY CAREFULLY shave off the excess burrs and whatnot that are on the back of the turret from the dart pegs.
Now just reassemble everything back into the shell in the opposite order you removed it from.
Make sure when installing the turret, that the flat portion of the pictured tab is facing DOWN, otherwise your shell will not close fully and you will risk cracking a screw port if you over tighten it.
Then all you have to do is just close it up and put the screws back in, then presto! You have a sidearm worthy Hammershot!
I built a snap pistol using MIG's 1 inch CPVC coulpler method. The only change is that I cut it in half and sanded it to fit in the 1 1/4 inch PVC, as well as I cut a 1/2 inch PVC coupler in half and gooped that into the 1 inch coupler. I had to use painters tape as a spacer between the 1 inch coupler and the 1/2 inch coupler because I was on vacation and didn't have the adequate materials. Anyway it has 5 inches of a [k26] and has a total of just over 3 inches of draw. I used a 1 1/4 inch drain plug sandwiched between 2 washers to make my plunger head.
FUN FACT: [k26] springs fit in 1/2 inch PVC couplers but can't pass through the ridge in the middle.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I used the other half of both couplers on the back for a spring rest.
In total I received a ,Retaliator, Rampage with bonus 18 round clip, Stryfe, Rough Cut, Rayven (not an elite one), 30 elite darts, an I-beam pump Air Zone Panther, $50 Lowes gift card, and $100 cash to put towards a few new tools.
(Hopefully I will have pics up later.)
If you do get the mold perfected, and you do start selling them, how much would it cost per ring? Or would you price them in lots?
Because I am very interested because I recently got a Tornado over the summer, aswell as 3 rings.
And yes, I know that Nerf Haven isn't a "link site" meaning that the site is full of nothing but links to other sites, but I figured that finding a Hail-Fire on Amazon was an important discovery.
Hey, Tornado here, just wondering if anyone would come to a Kansas Nerf War. I have two great locations, one is indoor one is outdoor. I will try to post pictures later. Like in the Season Of Foam thread noted it would be cool if you guys could drop-in. That means we would have to organize the date around the time that you would be here. Just wondering if anyone would come. If you vote in the poll please post a reply so I could add you to the list. If you want to see the pictures for the places first wait to vote so then I can see where you guys want to hold it.
EDIT: As it says in the post above, please post if you can come or if your a maybe!!!
YES I would definitely go to a Kansas Nerf war!!! To me I personally think I am the only Nerffer in the state of Kansas.
