After seeing alot of new members post things like "How do I make stefans?" or "What can I do to my magstrike?" I decided to make this thread to help new people since they seem to lazy to use the search button. Anyways heres the list:


Modification Directory
All Longshot mods.
Make Stefans
Barrel guide


Well I mean H2 where do I buy these things to mod? well....

Plumbers Goop: Most all Hardware stores carry in the plumbing section.

PVC: Any hardware store.

FBR: Found at most hardware stores in the weather section etc.. full name is foam backer rod

Hot Glue Gun and Glue: Any hardware store.

Brass: Sort of rare but can be found at lowes I believe.

you can get brass at hobby/train stores and you can find glue guns at craft stores also. quote by kyrativ

I have seen it in all sizes at True Value along with aluminum sheets, which are often used for reinforcement, and music wire. by analogkid

Brass: Tower Hobbies, True Value Hardware, Metal Supply Companies, Industrial Supply Companies, Ace Hardware (limited), Lowes (limited)



PETG: Can be bought from OMC for 50cents a foot and 5$ flat shipping no matter how many feet are bought.

Hacksaws and other blades: Should be able to find at any Hardware store.

Screwdrivers: Hardware stores all of them sometimes even your dollar store.

Ruler: Staples Depot,Hardware stores.

EPOXY: Any hardware store (mighty putty for the win.)

PVC Cement: At any hardware store.


Well I'm new to modding so which gun should I start off with?
The easiest gun to mod currently is probably the Nite Finder and its also cheap for approximetly 5$ sometimes more and if you have more money try a couplered Air Tech 2000 beast of a gun. Oh and a somewhat worthy 8$ primary is definetly the buzzbee big blast.

Whats the hardest to currently mod?
Well I would have to say the longshot since it has more of a complex internal design.

Also a dremel is pretty key to modding things considering alot of mods need a dremel or else there going to turn out really really fugly.

Having the RIGHT tool for the task at hand is very important. Especially when it comes to safety. (quote captain slug)


Well thats about it oh one last thing for the new members this is your new bible.

Yeah, me and PN tried a WHILE ago.

Things will always be this way, bunch of new people come in, half bad, half good (or less) and it all sorts out by an Administrator. Its been this way for a couple years now, and in my opinion, I like it the way this site is.

Eh, dremels aren't that integral. I get along fine without them.

I know you meant well by this, but I just don't think that this will be helpful. I mean, if some of the fng's are too lazy to use the search button, and they are too lazy to click on the forums button on the home page and look at the stickies, then what makes you think they are going to find this? Even if this is stickied, the fng's are'nt going to look at this, if they are too lazy to look at stickies. And if its not stickied, then, they would have to search for it, which is the problem.
Nice try though.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

I'd like to support what has already been said about Lowes. They have pretty much no brass, only having copper (yuck) and aluminum (cah-ching.) The huge sucky part is that I quit working at Lowes before I got into nerf modding. Frown!

Oh, and while the gesture is nice, don't bother with making these kinds of topics. If people don't know how to use a forum (I get the feeling that this is the first forum a lot of these people have ever visited) then they will be moderated accordingly.

PETG can be found in aquarium/fish stores.

The LS is NOT the hardest. I'd say the Vulcan or USB Missile launcher.

Now that I think about it, Jwasko already made this for you over at the NerfWiki

http://nerfhq.com/wi...w_Members_Guide

The LS is NOT the hardest. I'd say the Vulcan or USB Missile launcher.

Or the Hornet, but mostly because it was designed by a complete jerk and is almost impossible to put back together.

I truely think the new comers would get the idea if something like this was posted on the front page. I mean, the homepage is the first thing they see when they visit the site. Question: how come there isnt a FAQ section in Nerfhaven?

I was going to make a new thread, but this will be better. I hope.

To all the new members:

Do not ask me stupid fucking questions over pm!

Do a little research! Thats what the search button is for.

How do I make tightening rings?
Where do I get pipe cutters?
Where do I get brass?
Are you still selling foam?
Will you sell me foam anyway?
Will you build me a gun?
I have only modded a Nitefinder and I want to do a longshot with your breach. Can you tell me how to do everything because I am too fucking lazy to read the god damned write up all the way through.

The answer to all the above questions is:

Fuck no.

Thats why I spend a lot of time doing the write ups. So you will understand how to do what I did.
I will not say my write ups are perfect. I may have missed something from time to time.
If you have read a write up thread that I have posted, and read every single comment in that thread and you have read the entire thing 5 times. Then and only then can you pm me. Got it!

Old members are good in my book.
New members who are pestering me via pm: Get your shit together!

Dude, just stop replying to PMs. That's what I do.

What FA said goes double for me though. You have to understand we are not a hand-holding feel good community. The information is available to you, but it's up to you to use it properly.

I'm hoping that doesn't refer to me asking for clairifacation on your improvements of my mod. I'm also hoping people don't group me with the other new members of this site, just because my post count is low.
