#67773 Computer Help

Posted by jamesmiller on 16 November 2005 - 03:14 PM in Off Topic

Buying a new motherboard, getting a new video card, and getting more RAM (you also would probably want a better processor if you are upgrading everything else). You might as well get another computer.

Yea, I know I'm ten, but I've been around computers all my life. And I have seen and help my brothers take them apart, upgrade them, and put them back together. Nerferc is right, your better off with a new computer. (Boltsniper too said this)



#67715 First Mod Pvc Mod

Posted by jamesmiller on 15 November 2005 - 05:58 PM in Modifications

Well, before we get started, I would like to say a few things. Being 10 years old, I have no camera, therefore no pictures. Also this similar mod was done before, I just modded his mod. http://ultimanerf.tr.../firstshot.html
This has pics, you can use them I guess. Ok here we go-


Step one- Open up your gun, not the lever. Pry off one orange cap to get the screw under that.

Step two- Take out the black and orange piece that cover the spring.

Step three- Saw off the barrel and the orange piece under that has four plastic pieces to the side.

Step four- Cut a 3 3/4" piece of PVC that has 1/2" diameter.

Step five- Drill a hole in the orange plastic piece on the black cover. (Just under 1/2" in diameter)

Step six- Hot glue then goop on the PVC onto the orange piece. Then add electric tape for more support. (Make sure the drilled hole and PVC line up exactly)

Step seven- Put orange front piece on the PVC and put the new barrel and cover in place.

Step eight- Put the gun together and put electric tape on the front for more support.



No need to wait for goop to dry. You can start firing. Here are the ranges.

Flat- Average is 66' Accuracy is great.

Angled- Average is 80' Accuracy is okay


Hope you enjoy your new cheap sidearm!

NOTE: This works on both First Shots

Dude, after mine dries in the wrong spot, I just peel it all off. It's as easy as....... Well it's easy, but if my "method" doesn't work, I will use yours. Thanks, I think.



#67539 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by jamesmiller on 12 November 2005 - 04:04 PM in Modifications

Does Lowe's really carry brass? I've checked every time I've been there in the last year and haven't found it. Is it not with the plumbing supplies like PVC and such? I've checked nearly everywhere. If anyone knows where in the store it is (at least where you go), please tell me.

Well I looked online an searched for brass, and found a 16' long piece. (1/5 I think) So I just decided to put it here. Ill get back to you on which spot.

Thanks NerfMonkey.



#67515 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by jamesmiller on 12 November 2005 - 09:42 AM in Modifications

I finally found plumbers goop and decided to tell you where you can get your basic modding needs. (If not known) Any questions or comments are taken.

Plumbers Goop: ACE Hardware as far as I know, a purple tube.

PVC: Basic, at any hardware store I cant think of.

FBD: Called "Caulk Saver" in USA. At your local Lowes, and sometimes Home Depot. EDIT: Heh heh, FBR, sorry.

Hot Glue Gun and Glue: Basic, any hardware store probably.

Brass: The only place I can find it is at Lowes.

PETG: Clueless

Hacksaws and other blades: Should be able to find at any Hardware store.

Screwdrivers: Do I really have to say, same as above.

Ruler: Any store with school supplies, honestly can't remember.

EPOXY: I think Lowes

PVC Cement: At any hardware store probably.


Ok, anything I missed, just post below. Now you can start to mod!



#67514 College Football

Posted by jamesmiller on 12 November 2005 - 09:22 AM in Off Topic

Well, VT is the only one who's beaten the Mountaineer's, but both teams are still great. I think they each have one loss now.

Oh yea, I think USC is better, they've benn on a roll for years.

#67285 Secret Strike Pocket Rocket Mod?

Posted by jamesmiller on 07 November 2005 - 03:33 PM in Modifications

To get a mod go to ultimanerf.tripod.com. Their mod is good, but I just took pliers and ripped out the air restrictors. With 15 pumps, average is 52' angled. Accuracy is okay.



#67284 Maverick At Walmart

Posted by jamesmiller on 07 November 2005 - 03:22 PM in General Nerf

I was at Walmart 2 days ago and was in the Nerf section. Right before my eyes was a Nerf-N-Strike Maverick for $8! They just got here, but maybe not for you. A better deal than TRU. Just thought you all should know.

How was that for my first post?
