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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Ill check the plunger tube.
It is cold but just judging inside in a 40ft hallway the velocity has decreased greatly.
Also you may wonder the stability of the mod but it held its own at the war, with him running around all day with it. The turret is heavy but secured well.
Once again, Great Job.
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
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?
The only time I could and in your case single a RFS is when the rotational mech gets broken.
I can see two problems.
1.) Your darts are too loose for PETG
2.) Your seal is not very good unless you used something other than e-tape
I doubt your barrel is too long for I use an 8.5 inch cpvc barrel and I get 90ft+ ( Unless your using stock darts )
So here's my solution:
Use cpvc/brass, Make stefans and make a better seal.
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.
Yelling at this guy for posting this in his own thread will nto make your E-peen any larger.
