Alright, my first mod ever was my RB. It was to be single barreled, for a good rifle. When I took it apart, something happened, and it got messed up huge. When I cock the gun, it clicks, but doesn't lock the plunger in place. I'm wondering if I lost a spring or something. I really need pictures of the internal workings of the trigger and around that area, basically, the inside of the handle. This will show me the things I have, and the things I may be missing, as well as helping me put things in place. I have check mod sites, and haven't found the right pictures. Anybody with a Rachet Blast, a camera, and a good heart... please help a Nerfer in need. All input will be greatly appriciated. Sorry to bug you all if you have something better to do... which you probably do.

The only Ratchetblast internal pics I know of are Yakman's.

Confoundment. Well, thank you so much anyways, but I can't seem to see the part that I need to see. I don't fully understand how the RB works, which is why I can't tell wether or not I fucked it up beyond repair, or if it is just being a bitch of a gun. I also need to know what the little peg on the trigger does... I hope it's not too important, or else I'm screwed, because I don't have anything that attaches to it.

Thanks again Grinch.

Taking apart a ratchetblast is not a good idea. Believe me, they are a bitch to get back together. And if you do get them back together it wont work as well as it originally did. I've taken 2 apart, and both got majorly screwed up and i eventually had to sell them.

Good luck :) .

I've got some over at NerfHQ of the internals. I think the spring you are missing is the one that goes on the orange sight. If you lost it you can just take one out of a machanical pencil.

The picture is in this gallery(You'll have to wait however for NerfHQ to come back online.) NerfHQ Gallery

THANK YOU!!! Yeah, I will try NHQ. What's up? Spanky too lazy to reboot the Forums or something? I know the drill, he always maxes out his band-width, and he gets it back at the start of every month.

Yeah, this thing is probably going to go into either the selling pile, or I might just use the shell for a mini-shotgun design I have coming along. Only time will tell if this RB will be destined for being garbage, or a spiffy shell.

I think it's done. I know exactly what the crosshairs do, they lock the fucking thing, don't they? That little spring pushes it down into the wedge shaped chip and holds it. I still don't know how the trigger works, but I don't care anymore... too late. And yes, it will be my new shell. I'm going to shave out most of the insides to get it ready for my plans. I don't know if anyone was really interested in my plans at all, but for my good will, I will later post my drawn up drafts. It may take a while, seeings how I have to scan them onto my friend's computer and edit them to make them look nice. But after all that, maybe I could get some feed back. Thank you for everything guys... the RB was never meant to shoot another dart.

Would a Rattler internal pic work?

The rattler doesn't have a trigger, but I imagine the cocking is similar. I have a RB that I opened and closed but haven't screwed back together yet in my basement. It works the way it's supposed to. You're saying something about using the shell... but there's not much space inside. PM me if you need any additional information.

Ive opened my rattler, it explodes, but it is much easier to put back together than a rachetblast. I assume the RB is a much more complicated design.

The RB is a much more complicated design. It's scary how something so complicated can fit into something so small.

Janga, yes, I'm trying to incorperate a shot gun design I have. I will be milling and making openings in the shell, and HOPEFULLY I will incorperate the cocking mechanism.

If any of you understand this here goes.

If you remember my Shotgun topic (Shot gun is in pieces, not yet assembled), you will see I mentioned that my barrels would be on a hinge, making them realistic, and breech loading. If you get my thinking, I will make a hole on the inside of the RB's handle assembly and make my barrel so that when you make the cocking motion, the hole will line up with the barrel, enabling me to load a dart. Airtightness is a concern, but I'll figure something out. I'm going to make a hole on the side of the handle, near the trigger and put my ball valve through it. The air tank will be in the forward handle, underneath the barrel, attached to the fireing chamber by a vinyl tube. If all goes well, and I use O Rings to make the barrel as airtight as possible, I will have an amazingly realistic home-made, in a spiffy shell, made perfectly for my hands.

As you can see, there are most likely more flaws than I am ready to admit, but, it's a dream, and if I can't get my RB to work, at least I have a project to work on. Maybe some day this'll be in the homemades section of this site... most likely not, since only the best are allowed there, but I'm allowed to hope, aren't I?

Thanks again.

Here is a simple tip for when ever you open a RB and another for when you close it.
Opening Uses a large bathroom towel -After you have unscrewed the casing but before you open it, cover it with a towel then take the two halves apart. The towel should prevent the springs from flying way into oblivion.

Closing- the two catch springs can be a royal pain to keep in place when closing up the RB. Try useing a little hot glue on the contact points to prevent them from flying away.
