Kill sports games, kill EA, and kill Microsoft (free Bungie!!).


Wii all deh way.



#93598 Gears Of War

Posted by m15399 on 03 November 2006 - 05:15 PM in Off Topic

I'm not that interested in Gears of War, but I must admit that it has the best trailer I've ever seen for a video game. The music is what really does it: Gary Jules, Mad World. The same version of the song was used in Donnie Darko to great effect.

Dude, what the hell are you talking about. That's the worst trailer for a game I've ever seen.
Donnie Darko = best movie ever
Gears of War = awesome

Donnie Darko + Gears of War = total crap.

If you guys haven't seen the gameplay for this game check it out before watching that trailer.



#91829 My First Homemade

Posted by m15399 on 12 October 2006 - 08:08 PM in Homemades

So far it shoots about 300' with the mega missles, 50 pumps with the bike pump, and a 10 degree angle.


How did you measure this? I'm sorry to say that nerf guns with bigger tanks and better valves have not acheived 300 feet at a 10 degree angle with heavily weighted nerf micros. No offence, but I am skeptical. Try shooting it across a football field (300 feet).

Nice job, nevertheless. Looks pretty sweet.



#89362 2006 Jspb Arsenal

Posted by m15399 on 08 September 2006 - 09:43 PM in Homemades

It is not full auto. It is not semi-auto, either.

You pump the large tank, pull the back ball valve to fill the small tank, close the valve to seal off the large tank from the small tank, and pull the front valve to fire off a shot. Then you load another dart and repeat the process. At most you would be able to get off a dart every 2 seconds.

3DBBQ's valves are just metal ball valves (at least they look like that). You can find them in the same section as PVC.



#89165 2006 Jspb Arsenal

Posted by m15399 on 05 September 2006 - 09:34 PM in Homemades

Sam, you can buy ball valves at almost any hardware store. Metal ones are quite easy to find, as well as PVC ones.

Nerfer34 (a while back), you can also get check valves at almost any hardware store. The ones I've seen look slightly different, but the purpose is the same.



#88894 2006 Jspb Arsenal

Posted by m15399 on 03 September 2006 - 03:15 PM in Homemades

If he's not selling them, you should be able to build one quite easily. Simplicity is the beauty of 3DBBQ's guns. :P



#87922 Homemade Valve

Posted by m15399 on 20 August 2006 - 05:06 PM in Homemades

You're going to have a hell of a time getting a seal between the trigger rod and the valve casing. I would suggest putting an oring around the trigger rod, then putting it into a smaller pipe.

Your rear trigger might not work, because the pressure might push the trigger back if the seals weren't quite perfect, but the first one is a good design.



#84092 Farthest Shot?

Posted by m15399 on 01 July 2006 - 12:03 AM in General Nerf

Dr. Nerf's homemade hit 250... Go for 300 just to be safe.



#83249 Valve Questions

Posted by m15399 on 14 June 2006 - 03:38 PM in Homemades

Ball valves can mess up accuracy, but the main reason they are extremely erotic is that you lose a lot of range when you use them. Since ball valves open so slow, the dart is out of the barrel before you've turned it 1/4 on. The smaller internal diameter, the less air can go pass, the less range you get. It is important that a valve opens extremely fast to increase the air flow at the beginning of the shot.



#83120 Favorite Aircraft?

Posted by m15399 on 11 June 2006 - 02:22 PM in Off Topic

The coolest aircraft has gotta be the SR-71 Blackbird.

^_^

Edit: Oh, sorry for the big image. It was the coolest one.



#82939 Huge Air Tank

Posted by m15399 on 07 June 2006 - 08:47 PM in Homemades

How do you plan to make the belt advance?



#82864 Huge Air Tank

Posted by m15399 on 06 June 2006 - 06:57 PM in Homemades

What would it take...?
Some PVC, an endcap, and at least one other fitting, depending on what you're connecting it to.

Puggy, this is in the homemades section. He wants to know how to make a HOMEMADE tank. *sigh* B)



#82782 Trigger System

Posted by m15399 on 05 June 2006 - 01:21 PM in Homemades

I assume it's spring powered, since you refered to the BS-4. I would recommend the clothespin trigger made by Carbon. I have one sitting 6 inches away from my left hand, but haven't been able to make a nerf gun to go with it. :rolleyes:



#82706 Fall '06 Blasters

Posted by m15399 on 03 June 2006 - 08:13 PM in General Nerf

One clip is held in the back for storage (for little kids who wear shorts without pockets :ph34r: ). Each clip holds 6, you say, so you have to switch clips after 6 shots. You can say the gun holds 12, but you could also say the firefly holds 16 (ammo holders).



#82694 Best Homemade Trigger System?

Posted by m15399 on 03 June 2006 - 01:30 PM in Homemades

It would be able to hold more pressure, but you wouldn't need it to unless you're making your gun out of copper or some other metal that holds more pressure than PVC.



#82669 Best Homemade Trigger System?

Posted by m15399 on 02 June 2006 - 03:51 PM in Homemades

Ball valves are not so good, sprinkler valves can be expensive, and hose valves can be better. As I said, piston valves are the best valves, but otherwise a hose valve would be the easiest.



#82632 Best Homemade Trigger System?

Posted by m15399 on 01 June 2006 - 06:54 PM in Homemades

The best option, in my opinion, is a piston valve. It opens incredibly fast, has a very large ID, and isn't too hard to make. The only drawback is that it's not well-documented and is not a good choice for a first time homemade builder.



#82579 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 31 May 2006 - 08:58 PM in Homemades

Could you take a pic? If you build it exactly like in the homemades section, you would NOT have been able to get 60 yards, but if you made a huge tank...



#82475 Springs

Posted by m15399 on 29 May 2006 - 12:10 AM in Homemades

Well, you could try looking at the post above yours. Springs are usually in pound pulls (e.g. 60 pound pull). You can order custom springs from the spring section on McMaster. Don't search for it, just click on the link from the main page and it will show you sommore links that will limit your results to what you're looking for.



#82455 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 28 May 2006 - 07:35 PM in Homemades

He said with 1 pump from a bike pump. With enough to max out pressure, 200 could be acheived, but there's no way 1 bike pump can propel a nerf dart 200 feet... Unless your bike pump is insane.



#82453 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 28 May 2006 - 06:03 PM in Homemades

Oops, sorry.

Still, there's no way with any sized tank you could do that.



#82440 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 28 May 2006 - 02:31 PM in Homemades

How did you measure ranges? I'm tired of people saying "200 feet" when they haven't even measured it.

1 pump from a bike pump into 4 feet of 4" PVC will make less than 5 PSI. There is no way in heck that you can get 200 feet with a ball valve homemade with 5 PSI in the tank, even with a tank that big.



#82155 Another Homemade

Posted by m15399 on 21 May 2006 - 12:41 PM in Homemades

Normal super soaker. I believe it's the Defender.



#82000 A Homebrew Ramrocket

Posted by m15399 on 18 May 2006 - 12:10 AM in Homemades

I made something like that with 3/4" PVC a while ago. I've been planning on testing it with nerf darts, but never got around to it.



#81891 Half-hearted Mav Mod... Gone Awesome?

Posted by m15399 on 15 May 2006 - 11:43 PM in Modifications

If this is the same Master Yogurt from the super soaker forums, please come back! You probably won't know me, though. I joined a bit after you left.

Nice mod. I'll have to try that on my FireFly.



#81827 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 14 May 2006 - 08:12 PM in Homemades

I would have to say... possibly. I would make the chamber bigger if I was making it.

I finished an airsoft homemade with a hose handle and it works very well.

Any airsoft homemade is going to work very well compared to manufactured guns. A nerf gun could shoot a BB 120'+. Hose handles won't let the air out as fast, but the valve will be comfortable to hold.



#81789 Basic Ballvalve Gun Question

Posted by m15399 on 14 May 2006 - 01:10 AM in Homemades

20-40? That's ridiculously low for an air pressure homemade. What size is your chamber? Barrel?

He's right about the size and pressure, though. Take a look at 3DBBQ's homemades for examples of ball valve homemades. Most of those probably get about 50'-60', but with a larger PC, you should be able to get 100'.



#81700 Homemade Pump

Posted by m15399 on 11 May 2006 - 10:22 PM in Homemades

1 way valves are not part of the pump. The pump is just a piston. You would, however, need 1 way valves for a homemade like this.



#81694 Homemade Pump

http://www.sscentral...mades/pumps.php

1" Is a good size for a Nerf pump. You'll have to find an oring that will fit in 1" pipe, though.



#81372 Another Noob Question For All The Older Guys

Posted by m15399 on 06 May 2006 - 05:15 PM in Modifications

Full-auto with nerf requires motorization of one form or another.

Wrong.

If you wanted full auto without priming, then you're right.



#81357 Darts To Big.

Posted by m15399 on 06 May 2006 - 01:02 PM in Homemades

Takes too much time to reload. Unless you can come up with a good clip for it.

Not to add to the off topicness, but I doubt that's the reason because it would be pretty easy to make a clip or turret for one (just use large shells).

Yellow, try sanding the PVC into a cone where you stick the darts in.



#81285 Fall '06 Blasters

Posted by m15399 on 05 May 2006 - 05:27 PM in General Nerf

No it's so you can connect them to a titan and make a 20 pound unusable weapon.

http://nerfhaven.com...php?strip_id=17
^It's very similar.



#81078 Valve Question

Posted by m15399 on 01 May 2006 - 09:03 PM in Homemades

It is much better to modify the valve than to use batteries. The valve will open much faster that way and you won't have to buy batteries.



#80924 Lbb Uses Piston Valve?

Posted by m15399 on 27 April 2006 - 10:04 PM in General Nerf

Almost every air pressure Nerf gun uses a piston valve. Get used to it.



#80709 Working Prototype Of Clip-in-handle Pistol

Posted by m15399 on 23 April 2006 - 09:49 PM in Homemades

Oh, how did you make it work like that? Does the bolt push the darts back against the plunger, making the darts enter the bolt itself?



#80671 Stomp Rocket

Posted by m15399 on 23 April 2006 - 05:30 PM in Modifications

He probably wants to shoot micros. I would suggest building your own... which is what I always say. :rolleyes:



#80670 Working Prototype Of Clip-in-handle Pistol

Posted by m15399 on 23 April 2006 - 05:26 PM in Homemades

How does the clip stay in there? Does it have something to do with that peice of PVC sticking out on the left side?



#80648 Working Prototype Of Clip-in-handle Pistol

Posted by m15399 on 23 April 2006 - 01:20 PM in Homemades

The second video doesn't seem to work.

Do you open the cap to the clip before inserting it into the gun?

VERY nice work!



#80376 Fall '06 Blasters

Posted by m15399 on 19 April 2006 - 06:37 PM in General Nerf

Super Soakers dominate the summer. It's when it gets cold again that kids get their parents to take them to the store to get some more toy guns. B)
