Good idea. Would do that if I had one.
I also, found that the plunger cover that as sent out as a replacement on the recalled recons works very well to house extra springs. As it is longer than the stock plunger cover
Time to reply to Daniel... umm... Brain-Fever! Take that name change, bitch! And yeah, I tried that except with hotglue with a hole drilled through it, but heeded the advise of Ice and Zorn and removed it. Results below.
Legs are among the most sorely underutilized tools of the nerfer. Still, I tend to agree with TantrumBull's sentiments about ranges: even if you are shooting close-in, it is much easier to hit someone with a high-powered blaster than it is with a recon (unless you have Muttonchop's fabled superpowers).
Has anyone tried to remove some of the dead space on the raider? i.e., tried some sort of a straw mod? It seems like that would be a hell of a source of inefficiency (although, I'm not convinced of the effectiveness of straw mods).
I'm actually glad that at least 40ft is possible from the raider. That's about all you'll need in most indoor wars. The stock 25ft ranges seriously hurt its effectiveness, even indoors.
Thanks, and it was at the Target at Northgate. There were two and I picked up both, my friend wanted one. And maybe I won't do well with a raider, but wait until I get that clip hooked up to an LS.
Cool beans. Where did you get the Raider? I'm dying to get one.......unless you got it on an Ebay auction, then I'm screwed.
Oh, and to all you pussies whining about his ranges:
What exactly do you expect from a sideways recon? The only thing recons/raiders are even remotely useful for are indoor wars, and trying to one-up airsofters. No one is seriously bring a raider out on to a normal nerfing field and expect to do decent.
Results of increasing the deadspace for better flow:
With 2 NF-sized springs that are a bit stronger in the new attachment I made: 40 ft
With the [k26]: 25ft
With no extra springs: 25ft.
So it definitely helped, because with the two NF-sized springs before improving the flow it wasn't shooting as far. I suspect the reason the [k26] is acting up is it's catching on the firefly PT, which I hadn't tested with the [k26] before.
