Backstory:
Well after a few wars using my stock vulcan, I decided it was time for a mod. Since looking at pictures of the vulcan internals scared me, I decided to mod the chain. After removing the pegs of my 5 chains, I still wasn't satisfied. During nerf wars I would have 25 darts loaded, but it would all go so fast, I knew how to connect the chains, but it wouldn't work unless you have a box to put them in, so here it is:

Pretty self-explanitory, the box is hot glued to an old cookie thing, a hole is cut out in the bottom of the Vulcan box, and it works!
The reason why I didn't cut the whole bottom part of the box is because if I wanted to use a 25 dart chain, I could use that instead of a 50 dart chain. The only FLAW is that it would sometimes jam but the jam would clear after a few shots, I think this is because although there is a box, it still can't handle pulling the chains vertically. A possible solution to this "flaw" is to connect the box horizontally, but that would require velcro or something because that little nub isn't strong enough to hold the box and vulcan together if you were to connect the cookie thing horizontally.
Hope that made sense...

My vulcan died from having linked chains... Something with over stressed rotation rod.

But nice mod.

Good work buddy,
If you want to mount it horizontally... maybe instead of using the cookie box you could use
something lighter, yet durable...

It kinda seems like it can hold more than just a 50 dart chain. Otherwise, it's pretty nice. Have you considered some way to catch the chain after it leaves the gun?

I personally just leave about 15 just hanging off the end and just stuff the rest on the box and i do just fine. Also, doesn't that make the Vulcan even MORE unwieldy?
Don't be afraid of it's internals, they don't pop out when you open the case like the recon, it just take a lot of screws to open.
I'm also curious as to how the Vulcan handles a war situation. It seems to me like it would take too long to reload to be effective.

Only reason that happened was the rotation mech had to much weight on it because the chains wasn't supported by anything. This modification make the weights of the extra chain supported so the rotation mech will not break. Nice work by the way, nice mod.

I forgot about the Fully auto rule...dangit...
Thanks for reminding me, so I don't have to borrow Falcon's Pistolsplat.
I could've used those wipes boxes (made outa plastic) yet, I didn't think of the horizontal thing after I did this "mod"

It kinda seems like it can hold more than just a 50 dart chain. Otherwise, it's pretty nice. Have you considered some way to catch the chain after it leaves the gun?

It's weird, before I put them together the box could hold 50 by itself, then another 25 seperately, maybe if I make a 75 dart chain, then I could do that...for the "catching the chain" after it shoots the dart, I like the look of the long chain hanging down...

I personally just leave about 15 just hanging off the end and just stuff the rest on the box and i do just fine. Also, doesn't that make the Vulcan even MORE unwieldy?

Well...i'm not allowed to mod the vulcan itself, just the chain/box...and it handles a war situation very well...I think it has somewhat of an "intimidation factor" like a shotgunned Titan, hornet or crossbow...
Although you constantly overestimate its range and tell everyone that it doesn't really go as far as you think it will...It is a really GREAT weapon for CTF, just have a Vulcan and an Absolver ready...or maybe a big salvo. Lastly, if you are using a vulcan, rushing is a must and if you try to sit/stand there doing nothing and hope that people come to you, your most likely going to be picked off by a PAS/crossbow...not unless you can dodge.

So it's not your Vulcan then? Not that your missing much without messing with the internals, theres nothing(unless your doing an overhaul) besides easily removing the AR, and even THAT hasn't really been proven if it gets better results than stock.

It is a really GREAT weapon for CTF, just have a Vulcan and an Absolver ready...or maybe a big salvo.

Or perhaps a salvo of vulcans? :P

It is my vulcan, my dad just doesn't want me to mod it...I mean, if I accidentally break something, that's $40....

Even if you do manege to somehow break something, there's ways to fix whatever you broke(unless you break it on purpose) but if you don't really want to mod it, it's understandable, just start off with modding a nitefinder or other similar small pistol.

Well, There's always the wires, and i'm not an electrician. Anyways, i've already modded plenty of guns, it's just like when the longshot came out, people were afraid of modifying it 'cause it looked too complicated, now people can just open one up and get good results.

One thing that I think would work with a Vulcan is at wars. I have personally never been to a war but I have seen lots of videos and I find that usually there are a bunch of people all huddled together at the beginning of a game. So what I thought was to have a Vulcan and a really good sidearm and just spam the hell out of your Vulcan at the mob and your bound to get some people. Then when you use all of your ammo just ditch your Vulcan and use your sidearm for the rest of the round. That is just one of my wonderful ideas using the Vulcan.

The problem with this, of corse is that you may get sniped while trying to "just spam the hell out of your Vulcan" and besides it's unwieldy and pretty much will always take 2 hand to operate unless you have the shoulder strap(reduces accuracy if fired from that position) or the tripod(no mobility, again with the losing)
I am currently working on a little something that may take care of that, but I don't want to say anything really just yet.

No one really Sn!pes in nerf, and that tacitc isn't smart because you're outranged by at least 50'...so in order to hit A GROUP of people when you start off (especially when you don't start next to each other) you have to run across the field (or buildings/obstructions, if playing in an urban enviornment) run into their guns' range, dodge all the incoming shots...then ACTUALLY HIT them, which is near impossible. Plus, they wouldn't be in a "group" anymore because of all the time it took you to run over there.

Are you going to paint that thing?Or are you going to have it looking like your holding cookies instead of darts? :P
