Yeah a little for the stock internals. If you get OMW kits you might be pushing it a little. If you are wanting a rifle esque blaster I would try a modded longshot. If you can find an O MW immortal kit. That would take a hefty load. Honestly the EAT gets great ranges with those O MW kit soon to be kits installed. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the reply,
Orange springs seem rather weak at 5 kilos? I'd really like to get some velocity (160 ~ 180 f/s?) from the EAT as otherwise I may as well just use my 180 motor/lipo Rayven. Am I expecting too much here?
That is what I think should be the norm to use a sidearm for distances under 20' and to tap. Saves pain but would take longer to draw said pistol and fire.
I always have a springer pistol on me or I will use a less pwered shot to hit someone up close. I have only been barrel taped 3 times. twice was with stock barrels which wasnt to bad. The third was a cvpc barrel. It hurt not badly but if it had hit somewhere on my body other than my arm it could have done some damage.
I see where you are coming from. In the wars I have with my friends most of them use stock blasters or lightly modded ones and this isn't an issue but as they learn how to make nic worthy blasters it becomes more of an issue. It basically comes down to get shot point blank or hope the person is smart enough to know how hard is too hard. In a larger nic war I would say no period. But in a smaller environment you can get people to use a magical thing called common sense. Then you wouldn't have an as big liability that someone could be injured.
I removed barrel taps from the rules at my wars because they seemed to be causing more problems than they fixed. With modern darts, it's not a really big deal to get shot point-blank.
Please tell me if I took out a lock that shouldn't have been because my mag falls out when I prime back the blaster. Thanks in advance.
Thanks! I was considering trying to see if like a double RSCB or Hopper would work but it probably wouldn't work because not enough air volume. You are right about the stock roughcuts ability to spray darts but if I ever master keyed this to my rapid strike I fell it would be more effective for accuracy and not spraying darts everywhere and hoping you hit something.
Nice mod, but I can't help but feel that it takes away from the effectiveness of the blaster. I feel that the main purpose of the rough cut is the ability to spray darts. What are the ranges? Because you can't really replace the springs on a roughcut, I feel it will never be as effective as a nitefinder. Other than that, you achieved what you were trying to do quite nicely, so kudos on that.
Edit: Ranges are better than expected. I am getting about 15-20' above what a stock roughcuts can do. I don't have actual numbers because my 100' tape measure is at my cousins. I just wanted an improvement in ranges and it worked.
Well....the range is improved I haven't had an opportunity to test this in a war yet. Me and my friends don't war again for awhile. I mostly did this to be able to use Stefan's and to improve the range.
What other benefits other than using stefans?
2x 1/2 CPVC couplers
2x 3/4 CPVC couplers
1x nerf Elite Roughcut
1x Hot Glue Gun
2x Hot Glue Sticks
Dremel and Cutting bit
Thats about it. Lets start.
Here is your internals. Take the barrell assembly out by turning the white peice to seperate the assembly from the slide and trigger.
Now take the barrells of of the plunger assembly. It should just slide off. Next take your 3/4 and 1/2" couplers and wrap the 1/2" couplers in E-Tape until you have to hammer them into the 3/4" couplers. They wont come out when you pull your barrells off the coupler. Try and make them even.
Now take your plungers and hot glue the coupler combination to the front of the plunger assembly. I know there are better options to hotglue but I only have hotglue at them moment. Expoxy would be better, but like I said I have none.
Now here comes the fun part. Take your dremel and cut the shell like so. This is so the Plunger assembly will fit in the shell.
Put the barrel assembly back on the rest of the internals. The white piece you turned earlier to get the plungers off is a pain to put back on. You have to turn it and push the orange pieces apart a bit to get it in the groove.
When you put the shell back on and screw it back together it should look like this.
The whole blaster
Comments and Criticism welcome.
1) Will they make refills available for the demolishers grenade launcher ammo?
2) Will hasbro make more blasters that use the ammo from the grenade launcher/ mini titan?
3) Will they make rebelle blaster that use the n-strike mags? I think that would make the rebelle line 100 time better than just with turrets and single loaders.
4) Do they dislike the idea of nerfers modding their blasters both NIC and non NIC nerfers like casual backyard nerfers.
5) Did the thought of nerfers modifying their blasters make them come up with the elite line to try to satisfy our need for constantly trying to raise the bar.
Did you upgrade the spring? If you did the spring might be too powerful or too long and putting too much stress on the catch making the prime rough.
ok so i removed every thing and reasembiled acording to internals picture, now it catches but it is very hard to get it to catch. like its a smooth prime back but it dosent catch unless i pull fairly hard on the priming handle then it clicks like a notch on a +bow and then it catches
I have tried drilling out ARs before and I just drilled a hole in the plunger and I find it easier for me to just cut and glue but thanks for the suggestion. I actually used a different head for my Dremel instead of the wheel blade. I thought I would see what it could do. Thanks though. I might try drilling my next one if I find my orange one. It is currently MIA.
Personally, I go for drilling out ARs instead of making messy cuts and then using a not-glue to try to keep the two halves together in the end. But, that's just me.
I tried an upgrade spring, but I decided to go with the pennies because the blaster started to creak a little with the spring I chose and I didn't have another that would fit it. Like I said I am just using it for an ace in the hole style blaster. Also I am out of lube because I used the rest of my tube on my nitefinder and need to order more from OMW and my local stores don't have the right stuff. Thanks for the comments!
Good write up for a first post.
Standard basic upgrades.
The Strikefire is actually one of my favorite stock pistols for wars cause it could fire any dart you picked up off the floor.
Idk if you are looking for ideas or sugesttions but a bit of Teflon tape under the o-ring and some lube would probably help you get a bit further. Also if you have access to other springs a replacement would be helpful.
Hot glue gun
Screwdriver that you use to open Nerf Blasters
Solid surface to work on
When you open up your blaster and this is what you should find.
Take your front barrel/ plunger and cut it like this with you dremel or other method of shredding plastic at the seam.
Take out the AR and hot-glue it back together like so.
Pretty good for not using a hot glue gun for over a year.
Next take 2 pennies and only 2. the blaster wont catch correctly if you use more than 2. Put them behind the spring.
Finally put your blaster back together. Looks stock on the outside.
Good Job. This was my first write up and I would appreciate comments and constructive criticism. Thanks for reading.
Edit I hate wind. I retested my ranges and the farthest I got was 87' must have been the wind when it hit 100'
That's all for now. may add more later.
This type of threads are allowed but if you look up the eat on google or this sites search bar you should find good results.
Hey guys I just picked up my nerf elite alpha trooper any I was wondering what mods I should do like the spring addition and where to get them
also I want to know the best stock to put on it that is available in store and is an excess.
Thanks exit I was going to hopefully do my first wrtue up with it , but I might just put it in the picture thread it's pretty simple. I'm sure most people could figure it out.
Yes, why not? It's a mod therefore it's accepted. Although I don't know if your referring to post it in the Picture Thread or on the site as a Forum post. I'd think both are acceptable.
Ok but I'm 13 so I can't drive so maybe just maybe if I'm in mo sometime I'll be there of your close to where I am.
I may be able to with some friends. If not, you could always make a fairly short trip to one of our Missouri wars this summer/spring.
I live 30 minutes north of Marion in Benton for you guys and girl in Bloomington.
At the park there is bathrooms. There is multiple playgrounds and a big field by one of the bigger ones.
At my house there are trees. If you want to make the trek or just ride a four wheeler you can go in my pole barn bathroom.
PM me if you want to help organize or some.
Edit: I am bringing friends if I have one. I have many loaners for people to borrow. Just tell me if you want to bring friends and I have blasters the can use.
Also homeades are allowed just no exposed metal on the tips. Hot glue domes are allowed. Just don't bring something that can seriously hurt anyone.
Hoppers don't work on nitefinders because they don't have enough air volume. It is also extremely hard to make an RSCB even work on one. The only kind of clip system like that that works on a nitefinder would be an inline clip. It can't be a very big inline clip, but nitefinders can take small ones. A hopper would work on a nitefinder rifle though.
Ok thank you I thought I should ask before I buy or make one because I'm not experienced with homeades.
