You should make a new thread for the AR removal, (even just the belts). Once you get that, you will be the first person to mod a vulcan I believe. Good work!

The only thing stopping me from getting a Vulcan today is not knowing whether it has an inverse plunger or not. I'm not interested in a motorized recon.

Wow! I go on vacation and come back to this! It's like Christmas or something, Vulcans everywhere!

Anyway, I don't think an inverted plunger will be a problem. They use that plunger design to save space and make the gun smaller. With a gun as large as the Vulcan, there should be plenty of room for a good old regular plunger. With lotsa power. Besides, with stock longshot ranges, this gun should have plenty of potential.

I wouldn't count my chickens before they hatch. This could easily have an inverted plunger. It would be much easier for them to make a motor-driven plunger if it were inverted. I'm not trying to speculate, I'm just trying to point out that the reason for an inverted plunger could be other than just a space-saver.

Seems like a good-news day for me, all around. At least so far.

Then, first thing this morning, I get an email from Hasbro with a FedEx tracking number for my Vulcans. :lol:

By the way, I placed my order Saturday evening, within an hour or two of the hasbrotoyshop.com vulcan line items changing from "coming soon" to available, so don't be jealous, if yours has not shipped, unless you were as quick. Yes, I will take one apart and I will post photos if there aren't enough already by then. I also plan to conduct measured range tests in the parking lot, after the mandatory ogling and inspecting by co-workers. No point modding it until a proper baseline has been established. We're engineers here, after all! Rumor has it the boss has authorized a vulcan purchase for the department armory, but this shipment (ETA Wednesday) is all mine!

I don't see an inverted plunger design as actually saving space either. I will ponder the concept for a while, but I just don't see how. Swept volume is always a function of diameter and stroke, and neither is different after inversion. Only static volume is dramatically increased. I kind of like them because they're so easy to improve. With the Maverick, for example - insert a drinking straw the right size to conform to the oval outlet, center the other end with a washer-like disc, and either glue the heck out of both ends, or (my preference) fill the void with foam. I have not opened my Recon yet (maybe today's the day), but I don't expect it to be more dificult.



That's funny.. I ordered mine on Tuesday and got it today at noon, with standard shipping..

Did you look in the thread where someone posted the internals? I saw it after I posted my comment, but the guy said it was a normal plunger. So it's all good.

blah!


Yep. I was relieved to see the normal plunger. I am also relieved to end the speculation (for the most part).

This is just a Magstrike with a chain. The only difference is the BELT is electronically fed. If the firing mech was battery powered, it wouldn't be full auto, it would be Semi.











Yeah, this is only a magstrike with a chain, collapsible tripod, 15 more bullets, ability to go single shot, detachable ammo box, top handle, shoulder strap, folding sight, and 2 more tactical rails, I mean, whats the difference

You are retarded. As are most people with the word "eat shit" in their username. Search for M14, he was just like you.
