neh there ok if you need an element of surprize but they only get in the way during a real nerf war. Use them for a prank against your siblings if anything.

What's this Wrist Blitzer? I have something that wraps on your wrist, and then you pull out the orange plunger, and you fire it by tapping the plunger, like Spider Man supposedly fires webs from his hand. Works the same way. Is this the Wrist Blitzer? If so, how could you day it's usless? It could go on your pumping hand, and then while you re-load, you could hold your own using it... quite "Covert S.W.A.T" style, if you think about it. I believe it's a pretty cool little blaster, might even save your ass one day. I'm thinking I could give what ever I have, a spring stretch, and maybe a brass barrel, like, 3 or 3 1/2 inches. So anyways, is my gun what you are discussing?

No, I have the gun you mean, dont waste a brass barrel on it, the air output is too small for a barrel, or use.

Yes, that's the Wrist Blitzer alright. http://www.nerfcente...ristBlitzer.htm

I have one too... And frankly, I don't think it's worth modding if you're gonna keep it on your wrist. If you really wanted to you could make it into a spring version SSPB. The plastic with velcro that holds it on doesn't feel very sturdy since there is only 1 strap. Also, I would find it hard to pump let alone hold a gun with that Wrist Blitzer strapped on. Still, it's one of those novel guns that it would be fun to see a mod for, with ranges.

Yeah, I guess modding it with brass is a waste. Copper anyone? Maybe a little heavy, but hey, couldn't hurt. I'll see what it does, might be fun. I bought that gun when I was 7 years old, on my holiday in Florida. Nice place. I wanted that thing sooooo bad, and when I got it, it's all I played with. I don't know, wicked cool gun, wicked crappy performence. Thanks for identifying this gun for me. And for the record, is this gun worth anything? My friend sorta wants it.

I find them almost useless to use on the wrist, but someone might be able to mod them and then integrate them. At least they would be off your wrist. That would prevent a few more misfires

Kid is smart. You could rip off the band and glue the gun to the side of your gun. Sort of like I did. Just now. Yeah. Wow, didn't think about that till this morning, when I woke up and saw it sitting on my desk... anyways, I just glued it onto my SM5k, works pretty well as a reload weapon, to protect yourself, or as precautionary secondary.

Worst decision youve ever made. It shoots a total of 10 feet, and must use Nerf megas because of the peg. The only thing I see useful in that gun is to use it for spare parts.

Saw off the barrel, add a new barrel connected by vianl tubing, and make it shoot stefans. You cant internally mod it because its sealed, and if you do open it, its gonna be a bitch to seal it up again wth glue.

I'm with Sylent on this one. For little extra cost, they seem like a fine reload wep. Though I dunno about GLUING it onto mine... I might want to take it off. Also, It would be great if someone could change the firing mechanism. In fact, I'll do just that. I'll post my results ASAP.

I would just tape it on with duct tape. Also THIRST, you must be talking about a different gun because the wrist blitzer shoots micros stock.

No, sorry, it came with megas, and shoots megas.

Exis, I doubt you could change the firing mechanism because

1) its sealed shut, so you are gonna have a tough time opening that thing
2) Your gonna have a tough time closing it
most importantly...
3) the way it works, is that the plunger catches on a small knob in the plunger tube(my best guess) and a slight tap on the plunger with send it past the knob making it fire. You could try, but I guess well just haveto wait and find out.

Oops, when I said glue, I meant hotglue. That stuff is strong, put if you bend it, it pops right off. Tape is another, more messy and less cosmetically pleasing alternitive to glue. I believe it works fine, could save you ass, and most importantly, it is SO small. You can't even notice it's on there, and it is very easy to shoot. I have an idea to cut off the barrel, and effectivly, make a new one of copper and put an endcap on it. I'll then put vinyl tubing through a small hole, and attach it to the rest of the barrel stub on the gun. I'll make the tub long enough that I can put the new barrel onto of my main one, and then tape it. My trigger/plunger will be faced my way, making it sort of backwards, so that I can put the plunger/trigger near my main trigger, for easy firing. I'll draw up something...

Thats what I said, witht the vinal tubing and all, but that idea is great. The only problem s that it doesnt put out enough air to go through the vianl tubing, and launch a stefan 5-70 feet or whatever you want it to be. Its just not gonna happen.

And hotglue is very weak when glueing any type of plastic. Just use plumbers goop, and if you wanna take it off, just rip it off. Hot glue is way too weak.

THIRST- #1- if hot glue works for him (which it absolutely should) let him do it that way.

#2- are you sure we're not talking about different guns? Look at NC, the WB fires Nerf Micros.

Good work with the integrations boys, let us see some pics when you get them looking nice.
