Has anyone tried sacrificing three barrels; hacking off the blue connection around the original orange barrel tip, opening the top for longer barrels, and making only three extended brass/PVC barrels so that it can still rotate around part of the way. I am assuming the turret can rotate both directions, and turns clockwise automatically. Three shots would be fineif everything else worked well.
I thought about perhaps putting on a PVC barrel on the front of the frame (in front of the turret) and creating some sort of breech system back to the turret, only the turret turns WHEN you fire, so that creates a problem.
Yes, I think your better off sticking multiple darts down the barrel. While distance is significantly decreased, you do get the shot gun effect. I don't believe the loss of distance would be anywhere near that of dividing the air tank into three barrels. Besides, its a lot easier to stuff three darts down the bareel than to design a air distribution system that will keep the flow of air even. It's also easier to load one barel with three darts than three barels with three darts. It might work however, the lightning blitz was fairly powerful and had the shotgun effect.
I see a problem of 3 barrels getting enough air.
You can easily fix this bend by cutting the long "blade" pvc pipes in half, sticking on two t joints, and puting another piece of pvc inbetween.
Any way you can fix that bend in the middle of the longer piece of PVC? Aside from that little detail, looks fun!
This is always good to consider too!
Never trust the people who work at the store if they say they haven't got any nerf guns. Thats what usually happens to me. I look anywas and lo' and behold there are a few nerf nerf guns! Scour the shelves for a few minutes before giving up!
Yeah I have a K mart, Wal-mart, and Target. I've been to wal-mart and target, but not k mart. I may try it. Also I think I'm going to ask my grandma (who lives in cincinatti) to look for some guns. Including the Night Finder.
Dude those little yellow rubber dart guns are so awesome! I got one for christmas a really long time ago and it broke right away. My friend had two and we used to have wars all the time. We totally stuck a bunch of them down the barrel. It was great. I didn't think they'de have enough power for foam darts though, but thats just even more awesome.
They have two kinds of ammo, a little suction dart and little yellow rubber bullets. They are extremely accurate, have great range (We guess about sixty feet) and if you put three bullets in the barell, it has a nice shotgun effect.
Wow dude, out of the pan into the fire is from the Hobbit. And there were spiders in both the hobbit and lord of the rings. Shelob (the big spider in Lord of the Rings) is in the second book, but the third movie.
Allthough they did change the way gollum was trying to kill sam and frodo. In the books he leads them to a troll camp where every one gets beaten senseless. The chapter name is out of the pan and into the fire, check it out. No friggin spiders.
Correct me if i am wrong, but Denethor was crazy because
1. Baramir was dead
1.5. Faramir was probably dead
2. Gondor was screwed
3. Aragorn was comming to kick him out
4. Gandalf was in charge of the ring, and Denethor thought Gandalf was being stupid counting on Frodo.
I thought the movie made him to much of an ass in the beggining. I mean he was trying to save mina tirith in the beggining. But as he had more and more conflict he began to slowly lost interst in doing anything about it.
Anyways, they left out my favorite part (again, poor Tom Bombabdil). I was worried through the whole movie that the weren't going to have any of the scourning of the shire. They got half way through the movie and finally caught up with the third book in regards to Frodo and Sam and a bout a quarter of the movie in regards to everyone else. I was fairly worried at that point. I thought that whol aragorn king bit would was the end and then i would have been really disapoionted, but at least they had some of the book ending (which is about a third of the book after the ring is destroyed).
I was a little disappointed by changes in character, but there wasn't too much. Besideswhich I was expecting it after the second movie.
But all in all it was pretty amazing stuff, and I was fairly satisfied all in all. Sad that its over though.
Just like in bed.
I've talked to a lot of people and most have said that barrel length doesn't matter. What's important is barrel width.
But in nerf, as long as your barrel isn't bending, its not a pain to load, and theres enough support, i figure it doesn't matter much.
How are you planning to make a seal? That seams really tough. The air tech turret already has its seal for you and you just have to connect stationary holes together. Good luck with that.
I'm not sure if it was that one daedarus. The one i was talking about was 199 without screen, 300 with. Thats a shame you didn't get it though. It seemed like the 200 dollar one would have been awesome with some of my parts added in, for that price at least.
On a side note, I built a pretty decent system last year for around 800, 2400 athlon xp, 512 memory, 80 gig harddrive, geforce 4 ti 4400 128mb card and all. To my dismay i saw an add for a day after tahnksgiving sale for a 2.4 gig p4, 80 gig harddrive and 512 memory for 200 bucks. Sigh* You can never win I sapose.
Thats funny, I always think of goo gone.
Why do I always think of the song "Owner of A Lonely Heart" when I think of NO? O.o
Anyhow, i don't quite get the point of the new nerf online. Wasn't all that stuff there before? Now it just has new graphics, which don't look all that great. Oh, and the buy nerf guns links work. Oh no, wait, only the ball blaster works. Some things never change I sapose. I mean he didn't write any new article or change anything of substance. Did he?
You make it sound almost as if you care more about your life than a nerf war.
So I'm out of town on a shoot the weekend of Oct 11, and I just agreed to another shoot the weekends of October 18th and 25th. This is bad, I understand. But hey, I'm trying to secure future employment here.
Anyways, I'm down with the date. This is so in advanced for me though, I'm bound to forget. Oh well. Hey no wait, thats like in two weeks. Sounds good! Until then!
Use a dremmel to cut the spring a little shorter. Whats happening is when you pull the spring back, it compresses all the way before allowing the shaft go all the way back. You could also get a new spring if you like. Look for one with less coils. The less coilds, the more spring you can use. I have a feeling your barrel is not air tight. Snug is often not. Try covering the barrel with your finger, making an airtight seal. The spring should prefereable no close. I am pretty sure it will slowly leak out though, which is all right. It should shouldn't as fast as it normally would fire without your finger there. In otherwords, the slower the spring closes the better. In any case, check for leakage and if there is a leak make a better seal. It takes a little ingenuity to ifgure out how to do it, but just as long as you don't glue anything or saw anything to/from the gun you can always try over again.
I then bought a new spring, but it would not catch so i had to use the old one.
