Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped organize this war. It was a total blast! I've got 8-10 friends who after hearing our stories are now interested. If the dates for the next war are set well enough in advance I have a good chance of bringing all of them.
Also: Flaming Hilt,
Your slides were excellent.

Mods Done: Level 4 reinforcement, replaced plunger tube, plunger head molded to tube, 4 piece barrel.
Comments: I have two crossbows, and the other gets around 100' on a good day, thats normal for an xbow. I only ever use this one though, because it gets absolutely absurd ranges.
The original crossbow plunger tube actually narrows slightly towards the front of the gun, meaning the stock head will not seal further back, reducing the effective draw. By replacing the entire tube with PVC (almost same size, a little larger diameter) and then sizing the head to that, you can increase the draw length to that of the entire plunger. Also, an aluminum sleeved shaft, new spring, lots of bands, a 4 piece barrel (essentially CPVC to brass), and great dart/barrel don't hurt.
110 what now? I've had at least three of those guns, and before the pump handles failed (they always do), I could only get around 60 feet out of them. At most. Are you measuring flat distance, from shoulder height? If you were angling the shot, from your roof, then those ranges would be completely normal. Maybe I'm being over critical, it could just be an excellent mod, and you happen to angle your shots slightly. Sorry, those ranges just don't sound reasonable to me.
I plan on using a regulator, I forgot to mention that. This valve would be for a homemade nerfgun, and as such, I do care about the flow. I thought about making a valve, but this would be finicky, and I was hoping there would be an easier solution, such as buying an already made valve. Because I'm using a regulator, I probably only need the valve to be good up to 200 psi, Its the temperature I'm afraid of, and the repeat use of co2 with plastics such as pvc. If anyone knows of a valve I could use, off the shelf, or something that would require minor tweaking, that would be great. I would really rather not attempt to build a valve.
I really dont know when I'll get around to it, but I do plan on making a home made nerf gun. You know..eventually. Anyways, I want to use co2, but I dont know what type of valve to use. Paintball valves (I think, I'm not 100% sure) use a hammer to hit a valve, which opens and closes, but because of the way its placed in the gun (In the bolt, or behind it...I dont actually own a paintball gun) It would be hard to take out and use for a home made. I dont need an electronicly operated valve, just something were you push a button, or part, and it opens. Even better, you push a part, and it snaps open and then closed quickly. If I could use a pvc valve I would, but co2 is very cold, and much too high a pressure for pvc. I dont want to have to do a lot of work to make the valve functional, like boltsniper did with his BASR, and the brass eagle valve. If anyone knows of a solution, or where I could cannablize a valve from, that would be great.
I believe the way paintball deals with the equalization problem is to use (a) regulator(s). You can buy a paintball regulator if you want, but they're fairly pricy (for a nerf gun part). I'm not an expert on the subject though, if someone knows more about this, please correct me.
If you could be more specific it would help. You may have accidentally picked up a different brand of FBR, some brands use use different sizes than others. It could be that the specific pack you picked up happened to be a little bit thicker. Foam backer rod isnt usually made very precisely, so you get alot of variation. You might have picked up the wrong size for all we know. Add some details, and then we'll probably be able to give you a better answer. If your darts are too thick for your barrels, just stretch the FBR out a little bit, it can make a big difference.
I dont own a N-strike, but it looks like a PC would be fairly clumsy to use if attached to the titan, if you have a missle loaded on the titan/a longer barrel on the titan, and you try to replace/reload the PC clip....It just seems like it would be hard to do.
I know this is a bad question to ask, but its been bugging me. The sliding piece which resets the gun, I know where it is on the internal pic, but where is it on the outside, what do you grab or slide or move to pull forward or back the knob on the inside? Is the piece on the left side (which there are no pictures of)? Is the whole front of the gun a slide?
On plugging the release valve. There is a release valve on the air bladder itself, when it gets to its maximum size, or just before, the end of the bladder is forced up against the case of the gun, and a small push valve on the bladder lets out air. There is one of these on the wildfire and im pretty sure its on the rf20 too.
SM5k Major leak, it wouldnt hold any air longer than a few seconds, I returned it, and of course, amazon suddenly ran out of stock. I also have bought two at2ks that both had the tube that goes from the pump to the airtank broken off of the pump. that was mildly confusing
I dont want to highjack this thread, but does anyone have a mod for the range shot? Before I started modding nerf guns, it was my favorite pistol, but I barely use it anymore. I tried to mod mine, but the way the plunger is positioned, its very hard to get any range out of the gun. The plunger is also very small compared to most nerf pistols. I first put a stronger spring into the gun, but the increased friction (or possibly it gets stuck at the end of the pluger when its fired) causes the plunger head to come of randomly. Every time this happens I have to open the gun up to fix it. I also sawed the barrel off, and used a copper coupler, some blue tack, and a chunk of cpvc to make a barrel. On occasion, when it fires, it goes no more than 30 ft. Has anyone had any sucsess with this gun?
I own two AT3ks, a Supermaxx 2500 (larami), a sm3k, and an at4k. The 4k has got to be one of the most difficult guns to pump that I've ever used; Because of the position of the pump, its extremely uncomfortable and very hard to use. Having no petg, and because the 4k has 12 barrels, it would no longer rotate if I were to multibarrel it. Instead i removed the rotating device, and thought i might be able to get some results out of single-ing it. Wrong. The 4k also has a very small airtank, and I could never get it to fire past 50 feet. The AT3Ks have been alright, but I've never gotten as good as results as everyone else. Mine consistantly hit 60, but will never go further, thats ok though, because its multibarreled. I used to have two sm3ks, but I over pumped the modded one, so now I have one that im working on, but currently is unmodded. The one that I sucsesfuly mod (before it broke) used to get around 70 foot ranges (blue sm3k). The Larami 2500 I have is excellent, but recently stopped firing (I think the trigger has just come off its tracks); however, before this happened it used to get much better ranges than my sm3k, though I never officially mesured it, it probably fired 80 or more feet. I find the Sm3k and Larami 2500 much, much easier to pump than the AT3k or 4k, especially the 2500, though the at3k isnt that bad. On size and accuracy, I think the AT3k and SM3k/2500 are about the same accuracy wise; as for size, although the 2500 is bigger, I find it extremely comfortable, the 3k is not quite as comfy, and because of the large diamiter pump tube it feels like its going to crack in half every time I pump it, and the AT3k is not bad, but I always feel like its almost too small, the small pump handle makes it feel as if there is much more resistance compared to the 2500.
My SM5K started leaking yesterday, and within hours it would no longer hold air. I've opened it up, and I can push the firing pin all the way forward and pump, and the air still leaks, out of the front. I think the valve is off center, it might be from over pumping but I think its from general wear and tear. Does anyone know anyway of fixing this, or is it ruined?
