I don't think its sturdy enough, I'm going to mount the mav handle back on it to hold it.

And there are numerous problems im working on:

-Barrel (or cylinder) rotation (quite the same problem as in the Nitemav mod)
-Barrel (or cylinder) alignment issue (the hex bit)
-Crappy barrel replacement and rear loading issues
-And I will encounter manny, manny more problems as i go along
(not to mention other daily problems, like time-, money- and housekeeping shortage :D )

EDIT:

By the by PM me for questions, I shall try to help you in any way i can.

Might help with the rear loading and seal issues. Also you might want to try PETG for the for your barrels since its lighter for weight and rotation purposes.

I like the look of the mod pre-mav turret

The maverick turret is insane.

When you said you were going to do another, semi-third integration I was getting worried your were going to
slap to many guns together and make a big mess of this great gun, but you didn't.

With the maverick turret is the gun at all front heavy?

Dont know yet.... I'm still in the process of building, I am going to reattach the maverick handle,
on the bracket underneath the cylinder to reduce stress on the barrel coupling, and solve the rotation sealing issue, in fact I'm going to work on that right now!

Btw: thanks squee for the thread, however I already found that one (it was the inspiration)
However the plunger hole is in my opinion way to small to function with the vast amounts of air the Titan produces so i wanted it to be bigger, thus giving me some more trouble.....

EDIT: Just fired some darts, and it gives a nice "thumb" sound and a good velocity, only problem is that the only connection tot the titan is with the barrel couplers, witch are a bit flexible, working on it!

Looks great, i love combining blasters the way you did. And the double pump idea is very creative.

i'm making an extended turret like this, so I have to ask if the turret can still come out and if so, then what you used as the pin going through the center.

(aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh just deleted a almost done write up :lol: poor me!)

Well here we go again:

NOTE: this only works without the barrels mounted in the plack piece of the turret!!

Material:
- Mav turret, disassembled

Tools:
-Hacksaw
-Screwdriver (duh)
-Glue (hot glue will do nice)
-Vice (optional, comes in pretty handy for cutting steel rod.....)

OK let's start at the "orange" end, cut off, drill out or whatever the original barrels.
(I used a 5/8" butterfly drill) and mount your barrels

Cut the steel rod of the mav turret in 2 pieces: 1,5 inch and 2 inch (use the outer ends with the roughing)
Hammer the 1,5" rod with the rough end into the plastic stopper and glue them into the grey bracket:
Posted Image
Assembled:
Posted Image

Now for the tricky part, because I can't take pictures of this.

Hammer the 2" rod into the other plastic stopper, and assemble the other end, then take another piece of plastic and glue it to the rod on the inside of the turret, but make sure the rod can travel freely like it did in the original assembly in the maverick.

Assemble the rest.
Youre done!

Again sorry for not having more pictures, I just go along modding and forget to take them!

EDIT: This is my first sort-off write up, comments?

Nah, I just used both the stoppers on the 2-inch piece and filled in the front bracket with glue to replace the front stopper. Works fine. And no, no sig.

Not? oh well....

got a small update, I wrecked the original trigger, so I decided to make a bolt-type of barrel rotator thingy:

That seems like it would be really uncomfortable. And what is the range with the mav turret on the gun? And how do you load it?

The bolt is not finished yet, if that is what you find uncomfortable.

I don't have ranges for it, I still need a sturdyer fix to the Titan.

It's rear loading like the nitemav

That turret is awesome looking. My suggestion for making it a bit sturdier would be to find some pvc or other type of tube that fits snugly over the titan barrel, cut it so it covers the barrel, and then glue it to the back of the maverick around the part that sticks in the coupler. When you put it on it should help brace the turret a bit. I don't know how much help it will be with barrels that long, but it's what I would try.

Simple; attack a piece of 1/2" class 200 (thin) PVC to the titan and some CPVC to the maverick turret so that the CPVC goes into the PVC. Then find a way to make one of the threaded coupler thingys spin freely.

You are THE MAN, Wing'd man!!!!

You gave me the best idea!!

Here's the plan:

Making a sturdyvbracket from the Titan to the Mav.
Cut off tabs on the Mav plungertube, so it can turn freely.
Glue some kind of washer on the pvc that goes into the plungertube.
Glue the coupler to the barrel.

Thanks again Wing'd man!!

......Awesome. It might help to make the mav barrels a tad shorter? Did you lose range with the mav turret? I don't know if this would work, (because its a mav) but you might try and make a hotglue seal like on the doomsayer.

Like that? Yeah, there's just one problem: washers bind if they are turned. You'd need to use an O-ring.

You could also do something like this:
__________

See what I'm saying?

That could work, but I thought of it like this:

On the picture below you see my current setup, PVC hot-glueed in the black plungertube.
The black tab on the top of the plunger tube, (normally used to cock the maverick), now keeps the plunger tube from being pushed back by the plunger.
also it, and the other ridges on the tube, prevent it from turning.

Posted Image

What I'm hoping will work is cleaning up the plunger tube smooth, so the plunger can sit still, but the tube can turn.
Then i want to glue a washer on the PVC bit, so the tube can rest against the white piece of sheet where the tube goes through.

correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you need the peg going through the back because it's only purpose was to push forward the front peg forward, but since they're not connected it doesn't matter.

Really nice work, man. I'm not gonna lie, when I first saw this topic with that first picture up, I honestly didn't see this going anywhere. I'm very glad you proved me wrong.

I also love innovative tube connectors. I've had good luck with broken airsoft gun barrels.

Thanks, because there are very very few different Nerf guns available here, (the smaller blasters, like NF, MAV, strike fire etc etc. and occasionally promo-blasters, like the Hulk abomination blaster at Toys 'r' us), there is not much choice to mod blasters, there are a few importing (web)shops here but offcourse for a higher price.

So I(we) cross our fingers and hope Hasbro (or Buzzbee) sends more (bigger) blasters across the ocean...
