#230415 "the Blood Finder"

Posted by Applefury on 15 May 2009 - 04:09 PM in Modifications

This is a really good clean modification, nice job! Seems like a great sidearm.

My guess for the movie is Slumdog Millionaire.

#206149 Air Xxl Bazooka Mod

Posted by Applefury on 25 January 2009 - 08:58 AM in Modifications

Banzai? My buddy recently picked up a banzai gun with the crank. Wasnt this, it had a 10 shot turret, the original darts flew about 35ft flat. After seeing this being from the same company I'm considering modifying his gun.

#232910 An Open Letter To New Posters And Anyone On The Waiting List!

Posted by Applefury on 27 May 2009 - 07:29 PM in General Nerf

I don't agree with Zorn. I'm merely saying that he was mocked and didn't deserve it. He obviously can't trust the people he Nerf's with, so he ought to be better off playing that way. What I said could solve so many arguments. If people did what they wanted too, and nothing was "nooby" or "gay" then people would be better off. And he gave one sentence insulting Zorn, I doubt he'd learn from that.

You still did not catch the sarcasm in Zorn's Post!? Did you even read his post? He was merely mocking the fact that that is how some people who join this site think. If you didn't catch that, he essentially described paintball.

#237444 Angel Breech Question

Posted by Applefury on 19 June 2009 - 03:31 PM in Modifications

Follow hereticorp's assault rifle write up to the dot, except don't put tightening rings in the 9/16ths brass that has the half pipe cut out of it. Zap a gap a piece of 17/32 there instead, you will be good to go.

What the hell??
Didn't I ask you about this on IRC and you had a totally different answer.

Whoa whoa, wait those were supposed to be Black Friday deals, you found it on a normal day?
Lucky Bastard :)

#226111 Barrel Length Of Bbbb Rcsb Clipped?

Posted by Applefury on 26 April 2009 - 11:35 AM in Modifications

Hi i just made fixed my RCSB clip for my BBBB and i was wondering how long the cpvc barrel should be. It naturally should be fairly long because the BBBB has a large air output (almost as much as titan) but if was wondering if the 12" barrel i have is too long, right now it shoots as well as a singled longshot which is about 100' but i was hoping something similar to titan strength. Considering other people have been able to shoot about 130' with their BBBB i was wondering if my barrel too long? Or perhaps it is because it is an RCSB clip which has too much dead space. Also, the gun is not plugged for legality reasons.

By all means do what you wish but...
100ft and you want more? Especially with the ROF capabilities you are speaking of, why? I've seen you play, you're not the on who sits there trying to pick people off, your always moving around, rushing. If your going to be rushing then don't strive to make those ranges any better. Unless it is your goal to cause your opponents great pain.

#198897 Big Bad Bow Diminished.

Posted by Applefury on 25 December 2008 - 10:36 PM in Modifications

It is a big bad bow so it doesn't have an o ring. But it does have a piece that did become dry. May seem stupid but I tried lubing it with vaseline. xD Anyways if thats the case do i need to go buy a special lubricant.

#198939 Big Bad Bow Diminished.

Okay, thanks everyone.

^^ Refer to first post.

#198860 Big Bad Bow Diminished.

Posted by Applefury on 25 December 2008 - 07:35 PM in Modifications

Hello, I picked up a big bad bow a few months ago and have done various mods to it
Barrel Replacement (unisex coupler)
Spring additions ( Recon and Nitefinder )
Plungerhead reinforcements ( with washers )
Dead space eliminated
A R removal

The coupler kept falling off of the front of the BBB so I decided to Plumbers goop it on using a plumbers goop specifically for PVC. I waited for it to dry and it dried solid and it was sturdy. I tried to fire the gun and the darts didn't go neaerly as far with the same velocity as they did before ( I was hitting 90+ft ). So I tried different barrel materials and different stefans and I couldn't get the velocity back, I opened up the gun to see if anything was wrong and none of the sort, everything seemed in perfect working order.

Any ideas? The range has dropped from 90ft flat to 60ft flat.

Hopefully I described well enough, if any pictures are needed I can get in there and take em.

Thanks in Advance!

#198869 Big Bad Bow Diminished.

Posted by Applefury on 25 December 2008 - 08:20 PM in Modifications

Okay well I didn't check the plunger tube should've, but i didn't. I would've done that thing you explained ( A Side Of Nerf ) but you see there is already a small piece of cpvc inside the tube. I thought of that. And no I didn't stretch my springs, I don't do that.

Ill check the plunger tube.

It is cold but just judging inside in a 40ft hallway the velocity has decreased greatly.

#199549 Bows And Arrows As Nerf Weapons?

Posted by Applefury on 29 December 2008 - 12:41 PM in Off Topic

I think you are just trying to get out of modding a gun. Regardless of how much foam you put on an arrow I nor most people on this forums will let you shoot us with your bow. End of story.

#195020 Clear Maverick Mod

Posted by Applefury on 09 December 2008 - 06:11 PM in Modifications

Very Sexy!
Good Job on the mod, you can't paint those clear mavericks ( or I'd hope someone wouldn't ) so this is the way to go and it does look very nice.

#248192 District 9

Posted by Applefury on 22 August 2009 - 08:19 PM in Off Topic

I just saw District 9 with my friend and I thought it was really quite good. Strange how it is rated R in the U.S. but up here in Ontario, Canada it is 14a. It seems that everyone in the movie uses the word fook, what does fook mean?

Edit: I know what they were saying, I was being sarcastic.

#199160 Doomsayer

Posted by Applefury on 27 December 2008 - 08:49 AM in Modifications

Sigh, Andrew look for the dates of the last post of topics so you don't end up necroing things. Also look a little more instead of having information handed to you. I'm not going to give you where you can buy it, if you read the thread a little more you WILL find at least one location. I know I did by scrolling up.
That is all.

#226378 Doomsayer Problem

Posted by Applefury on 26 April 2009 - 08:41 PM in Modifications

Could we get a picture of it closed from the front where the barrels are. I want to see the turrets orientation. If it is sagging downward then that could be your problem, you may have dremel'ed the shell incorrectly so the turret sags and makes for a bad seal. Try pushing up on the turret and/or backwards and firing to see if it makes any differences. From my experience Doomsayers are quite finicky and one moment will fire with a great amount of force and other times where it will just barely escape the barrel.

#226194 Doomsayer Problem

Posted by Applefury on 26 April 2009 - 03:29 PM in Modifications

How long are your barrels? What springs do you have in there? Are you sure your plunger-head seal is perfect?

#221949 Extending Plunger Pull.

Posted by Applefury on 06 April 2009 - 06:50 AM in Modifications

For most guns, I wouldn't reccomend extending the plunger pull, just because your probably going to send the plungerhead flying off. Some guns however can have a larger plunger pull.

#250873 Extreme Wars

Posted by Applefury on 19 September 2009 - 05:12 PM in Nerf Wars

I don't understand why powerful weaponry isn't allowed at nerfing events. It's just foam, not like paintballs(I know some of you play) that make you bleed.

'Cause it's kinda lame taking shots at each other from 150ft away where no one actually wants to shoot 'cause they know if they do it will take them forever to reload.

#245868 Good Things Happen When You Go To Church...

Posted by Applefury on 06 August 2009 - 08:39 PM in General Nerf

This is retarded, it is a bunch of church going little kids. Don't even mod them. If you mod it I bet that at least one kid will end up crying. Did you plan for eye protection for the kids? If not then please do not mod the guns and look into getting eye protection because even stock darts can hurt.

#245916 Good Things Happen When You Go To Church...

Posted by Applefury on 06 August 2009 - 11:18 PM in General Nerf

This "little kids" you are talking about are high school and college kids... I should have made that more clear. The church basement is pretty sick though, I'll try to send you guys some pics if I can.

Sorry I misunderstood. My apologies, how large of an area are we talking about here?

#217590 Headshots

Posted by Applefury on 12 March 2009 - 06:47 AM in General Nerf

To be honest, anyone purposefully aiming for the head throughout a nerf war is an idiot. For me, I aim for the largest visible part of the body. If it so happens that the most visible part of the body is the head I will only shoot if I think it's safe. ( As in I'm not holding a Big Blast 20ft away. )

#199554 Japanese Nite Finder Rip-off?

Posted by Applefury on 29 December 2008 - 12:55 PM in General Nerf

link2thefuture, He could become our Japanese correspondent and be our supplyer of beefed up Nitefinders, and that spring...mmmm

#199629 Japanese Nite Finder Rip-off?

Posted by Applefury on 29 December 2008 - 08:36 PM in General Nerf

How would nerf be crossbowing if you have even better guns like the PAS and Doomsayer?

#199602 Japanese Nite Finder Rip-off?

Posted by Applefury on 29 December 2008 - 05:27 PM in General Nerf

People live in other parts of the world other than North America.

And that's all kids for your Geography lesson.

#226715 Last Stand [new Game Type]

Posted by Applefury on 27 April 2009 - 09:01 PM in Nerf Wars

The problem I can see with this is that it would get extremely boring.
I remember at Massacre 2 I was on a team that made a bunker against 3 other teams and it was just so boring. Everyone just taking pot shots into the bunker.
Nerf is about moving and dodging, not sitting in a bunker holding off the other team. I mean whatever floats your boat but...I don't think this round will last very long at a Nerf War with impatient Teenagers

#225699 Leaks

Posted by Applefury on 25 April 2009 - 09:18 AM in Modifications

...If all else fails you can just sell it to me :).

If all else fails, I'll replace with a 2k tank.

#225646 Leaks

Posted by Applefury on 24 April 2009 - 10:57 PM in Modifications

So I picked up a SM1500 from value village today. Of course with my luck there is a leak. But wait, the leak is in a REALLY awkward position. Let me explain, Where the Tubing connects to the tank and where the firing pin is. Well, there is a miniscule crack there. I don't have any clue what to do.

I pump, as I pump I can hear all of my air rushing out the crack. Frustrating. I've checked it in water and that is the only leak.

So my question to the NIC, What the hell do I do?

#225653 Leaks

Posted by Applefury on 24 April 2009 - 11:15 PM in Modifications

Pictures wouldn't help, the crack is small enough it is hard to see without very good lighting. I'm going to attempt goop, but from my experience with awkwardly postioned leaks it probably wont work.

#226082 Leaks

Posted by Applefury on 26 April 2009 - 10:12 AM in Modifications

I have this stuff that is called Loctite super glue for all plastics. It comes with an activator. Should I try and sand the tank a little bit and then apply this stuff?

#200186 Less Than Satisfactory Maverick

Posted by Applefury on 01 January 2009 - 09:12 AM in Modifications

Yes I await pics as well, but from what you've told me, I ran into some similar problems.
1.) Make sure the plunger tube is pressed tightly against the turret pull that part sticking out of the plunger tube out a little and put it back then try again.
2.) Make sure your turret is rotating properly, It might be that you've somehow damage the rotational mech and sometimes the turret rotates and others not. Or not enough.
3.) Check that the remains of the A R's you cut out are in proper position.

That is all I can say without pix.

#199968 Level 2 Singled Rfs

Posted by Applefury on 31 December 2008 - 01:51 PM in Modifications

It's good but, still kind've impractical because providing both guns are singled and you use a flip breech on both where the RFS gets 90ft and 2k gets 80ft so basically you've got 4 shots of high range whereas if it was a turret you would have twelve. Thats just my thoguhts still on your specific singled RFS. But anyways nice job.

The only time I could and in your case single a RFS is when the rotational mech gets broken.

#200051 Level 2 Singled Rfs

Posted by Applefury on 31 December 2008 - 06:28 PM in Modifications

Just an idea for you A Side Of Nerf put the pump of the at2k in the pump of the RFS and that way the pump stroke of the RFS pumps the at2k once and then you can pump further times by just pulling back again.

#206147 Longshot Question

Posted by Applefury on 25 January 2009 - 08:47 AM in Modifications

Thats most likely copper, brass is commonly found at Hobby Stores that sell RC cars and such, should be a few in your area.

Oh and, why would you reccomend doing an angel breech to a NEWBIE? No offense Nerf Special Forces but the Angel Brass Breech is very difficult and I doubt you can do it. You can try, but be willing to lose a longshot out of it. Another thing about the breech is that it requires lots of brass in many different sizes and it needs to be cut by a dremel with a metal cutting disk.

But if you want 95ft+ and wanna keep the clip Angel Breech is the way to go.

Attempt it at your own risk.

#221103 Ls Or Bbb

Posted by Applefury on 01 April 2009 - 05:57 PM in Modifications

What are the ranges like for a bbb with a simple coupler mod without upgrading the springs? I'm not nearly advanced enough to mod a longshot but I figure a simple mod for a bbb might be a fun way to spend a night or two.

With a simple coupler mod, AR Removal, Dead Space removal. I would see that getting 70ft, possibly 80.

The BBB will not work too well with petg, I know what foam you have, you will hate it with a petg breech. Either mod it for brass or for cpvc.

#197415 Ls Stefan Clips

Posted by Applefury on 20 December 2008 - 08:21 AM in Modifications

While were on topic of LS clips would it be possible to remove the peg of an LS and then just using real long stefans in your clip?

#202465 Magnificent 7

Posted by Applefury on 10 January 2009 - 08:16 PM in General Nerf

The doomsayer does not make him and his team glow and become invincible. It takes me 2-3 seconds to flip the breech and reload the PAS I then load a stefan into the other side of the breech. In one swift 4 second motion I reload and ready to outrange a doomsayer whereas it takes him 1-2 seconds to re-prime the doomsayer.

If you are trying to balance the game more and make it closer and more dodging, might as well just have stock battles. We mod our guns to make them better.

Doomsayers are still wielded exclusively by humans, which last time I checked can only aim and focus at one target at once. He can't knockff a whole team simultaneously, or close to that for that matter.

My 2 cents, the doomsayer is beaten using these skills you keep mentioning.

#193562 Massacre

Posted by Applefury on 02 December 2008 - 07:41 PM in Nerf Wars

Hey, I'm one of the newer people coming to this event and I was wondering if and what is anyone bringing to sell/trade, I myself will be bringing a vulcan and two mavericks to sell/trade.
