I along with every other nerfer that uses clip system blasters was quite sick of being limited to 6 shots before having to reload. Just for all of the longshot wielding guys out there, here is my tutorial on how to solve that problem.

Materials:
-3/16" wooden dowel rod
-A pen tube that will fit in the receiver
-Super glue
-Hot glue and glue gun
-Drill
-Rubber band
-5/16" drill bit
-Dremel

First off, grab your stampede clip. You can try to pry and make it clean as best you can, but I wasn't able to break the glue on some of the tabs.

Instead, go the easy route and dremel right through those tabs!

Posted Image
Undo these two screws.... and you're still not in. :angry:

Posted Image
Wait, before you throw it at a wall! All you have to do is pull the halves apart to break the glue that these rubber pieces use to hold onto the inside halves of the clip.

Posted Image
The insides.

Posted Image
Now grab your 3/16 wooden dowel and mark and cut it at 10 and 1/4" long.

Posted Image
Grab your pen tube. This is the one I used, and it had a perfect snug fit in the receiver.

Posted Image
Cut a 1 and 1/8" section of the tube.

Posted Image
Drill a 5/16" hole through the receiver at the right distance for your darts. My pen tube required me to drill a 5/16 hole and then go around the hole once with scissors.

Posted Image
Insert your pen tube into the hole you drilled. I used no adhesives here, since I made mine fit perfectly.

Posted Image
Hot glue the dowel rod to the bottom of the clip. Use the receiver to line in up.

Posted Image
Get the receiver and spring back into the clip and screw the bottom half together. Since we cut the tabs earlier, we are going to have to glue the halves together.

Posted Image
Wrap your rubber band around the top to hold the halves together while you apply your super glue. Rub the super glue in so that it doesn't protrude in the mag well. Sit this upright, and when it is dry, enjoy having triple the shots before swapping out clips. Also, I use this method on my 6-shot clips too, and it works great and has never jammed on me.

Nice! A way to make a stefan modded clip without all of the metal bars and cutting.

Great writeup. I was finally going to do this to my clips now that the semester is over. Did you ever think of using 1/4 Pex or is that too big? Also for an even cleaner look you can run an exacto/hobby knife down the little plastic nubs. it takes a while but it looks super clean when it's done.

Yeah, two of the tabs had a very large amount of adhesive on them that just wouldn't loosen up. This was actually the second one I made, and I wanted to see how fast I could make it. With the glue gun warmed up and the materials all standing by, one can make these in under 10 minutes.

Pex is made of polyethylene, so whatever it's size, you won't be able to glue it. Also, I've never seen 1/4" PEX, where'd you get it?

1/4 inch pex is at just about every Lowes... Wicket, nice mod. Taerkitty was talking to me a while ago about doing something like this.

KF is right. I've seen it at all the Home Depots in my area in the plumbing section. I didn't know you couldn't glue it though.

Thanks for the input Kane, I was completely unaware of pex's adhesion properties.

Thanks man, if he uses a different method, I would love to compare!

On top of what Kane stated, I don't believe 1/4 inch pex would be able to fit anyway.

To expand the materials list a bit, you can use 1/4 vinyl tubing instead of a pen. I couldn't find a pen that would fit inside the receiver but I have a bunch of 1/4 tubing lying around so I used that. It'll be tight, unless you trim down the sides. It's tight enough to stay in place without glue and loose enough so that the follower goes up and down without any problems.
