#280353 Magstrike Troubles

Posted by Hippopotamus on 15 July 2010 - 06:12 PM in Modifications

Why would they put it back on shelves? When people return things, it's usually because it's defective. Also, I think the seal to the clip is fucked up, I'll just slap a thin ring of foam on and it should be good.



#280281 Magstrike Troubles

Posted by Hippopotamus on 14 July 2010 - 11:05 PM in Modifications

Exactly. I could also sell the parts if I can't get help.



#280226 Humans Vs Zombies Recommended Weapons

Posted by Hippopotamus on 14 July 2010 - 03:08 PM in General Nerf

I'd use a magstrike with a pistol on the bottom, you'd scare most zeds off, but when you've spent your clip, you can rely on a maverick or another pistol.



#280224 Magstrike Troubles

Posted by Hippopotamus on 14 July 2010 - 02:51 PM in Modifications

I purchased a magstrike yesterday, and did some minor mods to the bladder and enlarged the airholes at the end of the piston. However, it is incredibly inconsistent range-wise, 1 dart might go 25 to 30 feet, and the rest land about five feet in front of me, it seems that the bladder just cant push enough air to supply all 10 darts equally. Any thoughts? I can always refund it since it looks stock on the outside.

#279130 Spring Question

Posted by Hippopotamus on 01 July 2010 - 02:42 AM in Modifications

Please remove, accidentally posted twice.



#279129 Spring Question

Posted by Hippopotamus on 01 July 2010 - 02:35 AM in Modifications

Well, you ought to go easy on your catch, so I recommend adding a raider spring, or perhaps an NF/eliminator combo, and recon springs are similar to raider springs. In general, less stress on the catch will make it more reliable, and will give more longevity to a stock boltsled.

#278250 Splitfire/2k Turret Modification!

Posted by Hippopotamus on 22 June 2010 - 02:26 AM in Modifications

Both methods have their advantages. The splitlantern when loaded, gives the opportunity to reload with a few pumps and a turn of a turret. The splitech has a higher ammo load, but is at a disadvantage in other aspects such as reload, I like the splitlantern more, but the splitech is still handy.



#278125 Baff #9

Posted by Hippopotamus on 20 June 2010 - 02:54 PM in Nerf Wars

Highlights:

>CHOCOLATE PUDDING!
>Meeting Nerfer9 in person
>Using the quadshot Jake modded for me
>VIP
>Being one of the last guys standing in TDM
>Getting blasters

Thanks for a fantastic war everyone!



#278113 Splitfire/2k Turret Modification!

Posted by Hippopotamus on 20 June 2010 - 01:47 PM in Modifications

It's so clean, and considering that you can reload it with the turn of a turret, it must be an excellent blaster!



#278053 Baff #9

Posted by Hippopotamus on 19 June 2010 - 12:40 PM in Nerf Wars

I'll probably be there t 11:30. And Jake, I have the two everbuilts, but my arrowstorm doesn't wanna open up, I can give you a few other springs to compensate.



#277714 Hippo's Zombpocalypse

Posted by Hippopotamus on 14 June 2010 - 01:17 PM in Nerf Wars

My secondary. It features a tek six spring addition, and a PVC to CPVC reducer in place of a coupler, I love it!

#276631 Semi-auto Shotgun

Posted by Hippopotamus on 02 June 2010 - 12:40 AM in Homemades

Wow, excellent work, very clever. I also love the look as well, it seems lighter, is this true?



#276530 N-strike Barrel Break Ix-2

Posted by Hippopotamus on 31 May 2010 - 07:59 PM in News

I'm actually kinda excited about this blaster, since it strays away from the assault rifle look of most N-strike blasters and actually looks designed from the ground up.



#276283 Homemade Arrows

Posted by Hippopotamus on 28 May 2010 - 07:27 PM in Darts and Barrels

It seems that you have a hefty amount of them, do they go to wars?



#275742 Deadliest Warrior On Spike Tv

Posted by Hippopotamus on 23 May 2010 - 08:48 PM in Off Topic

I watched the Jesse James versus Al Capone match up, and my money was on James. James was actually fighting alongside his guys, Capone murdered men when they were disadvantaged, and led a criminal empire, not fight for it.



#275737 Baff #9

#274346 Baff #8

Posted by Hippopotamus on 09 May 2010 - 12:04 AM in Nerf Wars

Darnit Jake, whose PETG nested PVC am I gonna mooch now? BAFF 8 won't be the same without ya!



#273897 'geddon 'leven Date Set July 10, 2010

Posted by Hippopotamus on 02 May 2010 - 03:33 PM in Nerf Wars

You can slap me down as a definite yes. To Bob and my fellow clan members, I highly doubt I'll be able to make the trek, but I'll probably be able to Nerf none the less.



#273643 3k Tubing

Posted by Hippopotamus on 28 April 2010 - 11:49 PM in Modifications

Hi everyone, I've removed the goo gauge on my 3k, and have fitted the tubing from the tank to the pump via heating the tubing towards the end to pull it over the stub on the pump. My problem is, It fits easily, but without glue it doesn't leak but can't take any pressure, with glue, it can take the pressure that circulates through the tubing, but leaks. Any help would be appreciated!



#273640 Double Shot Minimization And Optimization

Posted by Hippopotamus on 28 April 2010 - 11:06 PM in Modifications
