This is quite interesting to watch, I find it nice to see a video of a brass breech compared to the many different image-based writeups.
Also, you said at one point that this was all based around the elite dart, but then you said it would require stefan clips. Could you clarify this?
I actually just brassed my EAT today(adapted from Blue's writeup). I'm not quite sure, but I'm getting ranges just above what it got stock. I assume I'm not using a proper spring, so I may have to purchase the spring pack from you.
For those who are impatient such as myself, would superglue work in replacement of the 3 day epoxy? Did you try or would you advise reinforcing the catch with epoxy putty?
Thanks very much.
I just find I can show so much more with video, it's a real demonstration.
People can always pause and go back over things as often as they want.
Of course everyones got their own preferences in how they receive information, that's just my point of view.
In answer to your questions...
1. Good point about the Elite dart, I've clouded the point with my comment there. I based the tightness
of the barrel/tightening rings around the diameter
of the Elite dart, as it's the thinnest dart I have and the EAT comes with Elites. It will still chamber all types of foam that you can use with a 9/16" barrel.
Also, there may be rules for some of my potential customers wars that stipulate standard darts but allow them to be shortened.
Full length dart brass breeches are notorious for chopping darts and sometimes being damaged as a result, my breech gets much less jams/chops and isn't damaged by them at all.
I realize that making a stefan only breech will greatly reduce the number of people that will buy my kit, but it had to be solid and reliable and I included the clip conversion parts in the (soon to be listed) kit.
2. If you have brass breeched your blaster, you need a heavier spring. There are plenty of springs for that model available, including mine. You should be getting over 100 feet easy.
3. Superglue will not work, it will be a screwup if you just use that. Epoxy putty doesn't seem so common in Oz, but plenty of guys use it for that purpose in the US so I'm sure it would be fine.
I basically merge all the parts in my kit onto one file and print. 5 1/2 hours later I have a kit, it's just easier that way for me and probably cheaper as I don't need a different epoxy.
There you go mate, hope that helps.
