#101034 Moddable?

Posted by Lance on 12 March 2007 - 08:54 PM in General Nerf

I can see it all now...
"Hey son what are you doing?"
"Just modding a fishing pole"

Why this topic was made I'm not sure, but why would you buy an expensive launching fishing pole with plans to mod it... its beyond me.

Posted by Lance on 05 February 2007 - 08:55 PM in General Nerf

#99178 Dollar Store Guns?

Posted by Lance on 03 February 2007 - 08:55 AM in Modifications

Well, look at the ranges on the gun from the link that Skitzo posted... 35 feet. A nite finder can get around 70-80 feet. Don't you think it would be worth it to srounge up five dollars, buy a nitefinder, mod it, and have a kickass sidearm then spend god knows how long searching for a dollarstore gun that can match ranges like that (after mods)? And think about how many dollar guns you would have to go through to find the right one. If you think about it, buying a nitefinder would be cheaper and less work. What do you think?


Its hard to get a nitefinder to hit 80 feet, Ive been modding for quite a while now and mine gets around 60 feet. If you want to mod a nitefinder to get the kind of ranges your talking about then you need to drill out the air restrictors with a drill or dremel. Then add a new beefier spring, reinforce the plunger. Then add a new barrel, and possibly new o rings and bands. Doesn't that sound like a lot of work?



#99170 Dollar Store Guns?

Posted by Lance on 02 February 2007 - 11:38 PM in Modifications

My LS was my first mod, and it turned out fine. [quote]


Well not all people can be good modders off the bat, my first mod was the NF which turned out okay.



#99167 Dollar Store Guns?

Posted by Lance on 02 February 2007 - 11:20 PM in Modifications

In my experience, dollar store guns are cheap pieces of crap that are not realy worth buying. I'd just buy a nitefinder, they're only five bucks and are better than any dollor store gun.

Yes i know that there is the option of modding, yet is it worth it to buy a cheap one and mod or buy a nitefinder. Also i dont have much cash.

-Loni


thanks for the help skitzo, what matters most is your modding experiance, in my opinion, if your a new modder you should get one just to help you get experiance to mod a nf. One thing you must watch out for is make sure you get one that is put together by screws because you its not worth prying it open if its not. What I suggest is getting one, you cant go wrong with a buck. As for a decent sidearm, these things arent to accurate.. but I really shouldnt be talking because I dont have the stock darts.



#99165 Dollar Store Gun Mod

Posted by Lance on 02 February 2007 - 11:16 PM in Modifications

I bought one of these a while ago but it was green and says eliminator on the side. I cut the mag, scope and flashlight off and put a crayola barrel on it. For the size of the plugner tube(very samll)it gets decent ranges. I think mine gets about 30' with stefans.

Could you post a pic with a ruler next to the plunger tube so people can see how small it is?


Yea sure, I have to open the gun tommorow so I will take the pic then. I added a new barrel to it, and am waiting to go to the shop and cut down the mav spring somewhat. It wont stay cocked now because the spring is to long.



#99106 Leaking At2k

Posted by Lance on 01 February 2007 - 08:32 PM in Modifications

Well mine seeps out really fast if you pump it slow, if you pump it fast it seems to maintain pressure, is this your problem?

#99058 Dollar Store Gun Mod

Posted by Lance on 01 February 2007 - 07:52 AM in Modifications

My friend had a gun that was EXACTLY like that except painted orange. Does yours have the word "automatic" or "auto" and a fake safety on one side?

This gun seems to have a beefier spring than the gun I modded though. Those are some nice ranges. It won't look half bad when cut way down either, so it has some potential.

Nice mod. It's always good to see shitty dollar store guns getting some attention.


Yes it does have a fake safety, Thanks for the good comments. :lol:
Also I think barrel replacement would be possible if you got the right size.



#99035 Dollar Store Gun Mod

Posted by Lance on 31 January 2007 - 09:29 PM in Modifications

From what I have been reading from other topics like this, not many people enjoy dollar store guns. Well I had this gun for a while and one day I noticed it had screws so I decided to mod it.
Heres the gun:

Heres the internals, its a lot like a NF:

Heres another shot of the internals:

Posted Image
First thing I did was take out some pesky air restrictors. I did this by sticking a pocket knife blade down and hacking it out.
Before:

After:

Next I plied the plunger off because its not screwn on, instead its just plugged on. You cant fit another spring like the one thats on it because theres a blocker. I didnt have much selection so I stuck a mav spring on there. It barely fit inside the uh I think its called plunger shaft.
Here it is:
Posted Image
I stuck the thing back together and screwed everything on, everything fits. I added a band and Ive had this gun along time so I lost all the stock darts it came with, so I made my own homemade darts for it. I used a straw wrapped in paper and a couple 20 gram bbs for the bullet. The thing is the wind always catches it and the dart isnt very accurate. Heres the finished product:
Posted Image

Ranges:
Flat: 35 feet
Angled: 45 feet
I wish I had the stock darts for it, I think this gun has good potential so I am gonna check my local dollar stores and stock up on them. First mod hope you guys like it.



#98679 1oo' Nightfinder Mod! Well Almost...

Posted by Lance on 23 January 2007 - 06:15 PM in Modifications

How do you fit two stretched springs on a NF?, I couldnt even add a maverick spring to mine.



#98657 Banning Guns

Posted by Lance on 22 January 2007 - 08:27 PM in General Nerf

You would not be shooting somebody point blank anyways. That is what barrel taps are for.

Yes, but what if they are ten feet away. Do you shoot? You just turned a corner and someone is there, what now? Drop the gun? Get Shot? Turn back and hope they dont pursue cause you still can't shoot?



He brings up a good point, With a singled titan theres gonna be some serious pain. It also matters what age group your playing with. Say your playing with 10-12 year olds and they get shot and cry, then you have a problem.



#98560 Banning Guns

Posted by Lance on 21 January 2007 - 11:12 AM in General Nerf

I say just take the hit and stop banning guns from wars. If you can not bear to take a welt then maybe Polo is the game for you...

You even said it yourself you used single At2k's and some of those are just as bad as singled titans.

Stop ruining the fun, by banning guns and learn to take a hit.



I agree with you, but if a gun is powerfull enough to shred goggles I don't think it should be used.



#98050 New Reactor Paintjob

Posted by Lance on 09 January 2007 - 09:26 PM in General Nerf

Well it does look like a toy for 5 year olds, but is hard to shoot for them, I had trouble when I was 9.



#98029 New Reactor Paintjob

Posted by Lance on 09 January 2007 - 06:40 PM in General Nerf

The new paintjob is on the back of the buzzsaw box so it probally came out then, but I like these new colors way better than the old ones.



#98025 New Reactor Paintjob

Posted by Lance on 09 January 2007 - 06:27 PM in General Nerf

I just saw this on hasbros site, looks like the reactor got a new paintjob.. yea I did search it.
New Reactor

My opinion is that it looks better than the old one.



#98002 Hey Everyone

Posted by Lance on 09 January 2007 - 04:33 PM in General Nerf

You could have tried searching for both guns and comparing ranges.. well anyways longshot will achieve greater range when modded.


Range isn't everything. If you think that way, get out of here and go join a paintball forum. And the longshot does not always out perform the BBB, unless perhaps you mod each of them to their extremes.

So yeah, I voted BBB. Mine is my favorite gun, uber-modded of course. Plus, I think it is a better gun stock anyway, which is what he might of been asking on the first place.

Darn... Winter break is finally over...

-Veg

Edit: Same time post! Grrr, you beat me by a matter of seconds...


Don't ever tell me to go join a paintball gun, I said it will achieve greater range, which is true, I didn't even state my opinion I stated a fact, so before you jump down my throat look at what I type.

#97850 New Nerf Tech Target!

Posted by Lance on 07 January 2007 - 11:52 AM in General Nerf

Hmm... falcon, how does a 3k turret sound? Hah, I bet it could be done. This pistol's spring is still not as strong as I think it can be without plunger head damage, so a spring replacement is in order. This gun is available at walmart, some TRU's, and target.

-Sharp


How much are they?



#97613 What To Do With A Broken Doubleshot

Posted by Lance on 02 January 2007 - 11:54 PM in General Nerf

For some reason buzzbee toys dont seem to work all that well, the same thing happend with my rapid fire rifle. Somone suggested gutting the shell, I would do that since you can't take it back.

Posted by Lance on 02 January 2007 - 01:05 AM in Modifications

#96958 Casino Royale

Posted by Lance on 23 December 2006 - 11:09 AM in Off Topic

I can't bieleve everybody liked this movie.. not to bring up old topics but it was a HUGE dissapointment. The first problem is theres no gadgets.. and you might say because hes the first bond, but I don't care I think there should be at least one. The action is violient, I dont see bond as being voilent, i see him as using his gadgets and gun to get out of things. Secondly, the whole movie was based on a poker game.. not saving the world, not stoping some virius, not saving everybody from nuclear fallout. The whole movie was based on not letting some guy win a poker game.. who writes this stuff?. Thirdly, They didnt use the bond music intel the end of the movie on the credits. And the ending didnt make sense at all, he shot some guy, it ends.. woohoo!.



#96930 Nerf Vs. Paintball

Posted by Lance on 22 December 2006 - 11:30 AM in Articles

IT doesn't matter if nerf doesnt have a magazine, or if its on TV. I airsoft and nerf, but my dad doesn't like the idea if shooting each other with an airsoft gun. So I nerf outside with my modified nerf guns, and my sm750 will outrage both my desert eagle, and m16. Nerf is just fun, its cheap and fun to modify.



#96927 Strikefire?

Posted by Lance on 22 December 2006 - 09:37 AM in General Nerf

They probally wont be selling the crossfires in sets of 1 anymore.



#96805 Strikefire?

Posted by Lance on 19 December 2006 - 04:52 PM in General Nerf

Looks pretty cool, I would like the crossfires in sets of 2

#96754 Mech Tommy 20 Air Zone Blaster By Buzz Bee Toys

Posted by Lance on 18 December 2006 - 07:06 PM in General Nerf

If it shoots anything like my mech 6, than its pretty good. I can get 50 feet angled with dart tag darts with my mech 6.
