So I have a Long Shot with a Remedy Metals powertrain kit in it with a cut down [k26] and the stock spring. I have not been able to find a dart that the kit likes or flies straight (as possible). The kit doesn't like full length darts made from solid 1/2 inch foam (just doesn't make it out of the barrel). I have tried half length slugs with the ACE hardware foam, they fly fine, but I would like to use an 18 drum with the kit. The elites and streamlines just ain't accurate (no **** right?) even with clayed or hot glue tips. My buddy has some of the velocity tag darts and they work WONDERFUL, but they don't seem to be able to reply to any emails or facebook. Is there anybody out there that knows what else I can do or are there any other companies producing a dart that will work in a stock clip system? Anything will help, I just want to be able to use this kit to its full potential!

I haven't tried it yet, but try ordering from this place, I think they're a branch of Xplorer Blaster Parts:

You can modify Nerf magazines so that they work with stefans. You can also substitute the brass rod used in the write-up for a dowel.

the thing is, I don't run clips in the blaster, i run an 18 round drum like i said, I have seen some modifications to 35s and I assume they would be the same for the 18 but I really don't want to make the one 18 round drum exclusive to this blaster. I also use it in my AT and recons/retaliators.

Modify the other blasters so they work with stefans/slugs? Cut down your stock darts? It seems like it'd only be to your advantage to have all your blasters firing the same darts.

Yes, they are a part of Xplorer Blaster Developments, so the dart tips and foam at the survivor fbu and xplorer websites are most likely the exact same, just different quantities.

I personally use(d) pak d stefans, which work incredibly well with their 12 dart clip. I would recommend the full length darts for you, but pak d seems to have gone missing multiple months ago, hence use(d). My friend has a couple of the xplorer darts, but I haven't been able to use them firsthand yet. I have a order from xplorer which includes their darts, and I am assuming they are very similar to pak d darts. If you want, PM me around late October and I should have them and be able to tell you about how well they work in the RM kit.

Go cougs! and thanks, i got quite a few blasters to modify then and quite a few darts to make. I just have to get this thing operational before the next game of HvZ (probably in a month or two). I just wish velocity was around still, I loved their darts. Does anyone know if there is anyone on the forum that is selling packages like that?

If you want, PM me around late October and I should have them and be able to tell you about how well they work in the RM kit.

so i take it you have the RM kit? I was going to do the Pac D darts but they were so spendy and that was right before i realized that velocity was gone for good and was trying desperately to get darts from them (so much cheaper and i like the full length of them)

Yes, PAK D went missing. I think, just by inspection, the PAK D adhere better to foam due to their ribbed stem, as compared to the Xplorer, so I started working on a silicone dome dart mold for the DIYers.

one more question, are the darts from that place full length or?

Yes, full length.
