Ain't he cute?
Look at the sticker!
Still has the attachment holding brackets and the arrow shooting barrel.
Arrow barrel/barrel sheath is still removable and effectively keeps the barrel straight.
Beautiful shot of it.
I will be bringing 3 guests and will not have enough darts to supply everyone with a reasonable amount, therefore, I am looking to borrow/trade for/buy darts that have a springer fit in cpvc and aren't grey at the war. Thanks to anyone that can help us out!
Wicket + 2-3
Noodle- I am sure I have a piece of dowel and the pvc parts laying around, I will try to remember to bring them for you. Also, don't forget to bring my NF Rifle from your sales thread...I will have your BBB as well.
Let's get some more attendees! I know there are a whole bunch of new Chicago guys. Noodle, would you mind if I posted this over on NerfRevolution?
EDIT- My dad is off! Just need to check with him when he gets home.
-Got some cool footage.
-Tons of cheap stuff.
-Getting to war with some new guys.
-Scoring some 1 and 1/2 inch thinwall.
-Getting a Boomstick from Flash!
-Culvers and Target afterwards!
-Cheerios managing to shoot one of the rubber washers out of the front of my snap.
-Getting murdered by all of the 4B's and RPB's all day long.
-Getting less than half of my darts back.
Overall great war, would definitely come again. Also, thanks a ton Broken and Flash for piking me up along the way, and for the 45 minutes of shooting each other in my culdesac.
Pex is made of polyethylene, so whatever it's size, you won't be able to glue it. Also, I've never seen 1/4" PEX, where'd you get it?
Thanks for the input Kane, I was completely unaware of pex's adhesion properties.
1/4 inch pex is at just about every Lowes... Wicket, nice mod. Taerkitty was talking to me a while ago about doing something like this.
Thanks man, if he uses a different method, I would love to compare!
KF is right. I've seen it at all the Home Depots in my area in the plumbing section. I didn't know you couldn't glue it though.
On top of what Kane stated, I don't believe 1/4 inch pex would be able to fit anyway.
Great writeup. I was finally going to do this to my clips now that the semester is over. Did you ever think of using 1/4 Pex or is that too big? Also for an even cleaner look you can run an exacto/hobby knife down the little plastic nubs. it takes a while but it looks super clean when it's done.
Yeah, two of the tabs had a very large amount of adhesive on them that just wouldn't loosen up. This was actually the second one I made, and I wanted to see how fast I could make it. With the glue gun warmed up and the materials all standing by, one can make these in under 10 minutes.
-3/16" wooden dowel rod
-A pen tube that will fit in the receiver
-Hot glue and glue gun
-5/16" drill bit
First off, grab your stampede clip. You can try to pry and make it clean as best you can, but I wasn't able to break the glue on some of the tabs.
Instead, go the easy route and dremel right through those tabs!
Undo these two screws.... and you're still not in.
Wait, before you throw it at a wall! All you have to do is pull the halves apart to break the glue that these rubber pieces use to hold onto the inside halves of the clip.
Now grab your 3/16 wooden dowel and mark and cut it at 10 and 1/4" long.
Grab your pen tube. This is the one I used, and it had a perfect snug fit in the receiver.
Cut a 1 and 1/8" section of the tube.
Drill a 5/16" hole through the receiver at the right distance for your darts. My pen tube required me to drill a 5/16 hole and then go around the hole once with scissors.
Insert your pen tube into the hole you drilled. I used no adhesives here, since I made mine fit perfectly.
Hot glue the dowel rod to the bottom of the clip. Use the receiver to line in up.
Get the receiver and spring back into the clip and screw the bottom half together. Since we cut the tabs earlier, we are going to have to glue the halves together.
Wrap your rubber band around the top to hold the halves together while you apply your super glue. Rub the super glue in so that it doesn't protrude in the mag well. Sit this upright, and when it is dry, enjoy having triple the shots before swapping out clips. Also, I use this method on my 6-shot clips too, and it works great and has never jammed on me.
I ordered one of the sample packs on ebay. I have no use for the snap caps though, so could I receive 15 of the silicone tips instead? Ebay name is: magicalxradical
I will send the payment after I get your response, so there is no mix-up.
