I hate buying batteries
So you can guess what I did here
First I wanna say I have been having a blast (lol) reading your posts, mods and looking at your pics

I was wandering around a thrift store today and asked if they had any nerf blasters
The guy said he had one in the back and brought out a Barricade RV-10, a belt for a Vulcan and a Longshot scope
He sold them all to me for $5.00
I hated the blaster right from putting batteries in the dang thing.
I figgerd what was the worst thing that could happen is I got a scope and a belt for 5 bucks

On to the mod
Yall have enuph mods for the barricade so I dont have to tell you how to do those

But I wanted to use a RC batt for power
Hmm nowhere to stash it

So stealing a mod for another flywheel blaster I saw
The only difference is I used a rca jack for the blaster end and he used a guitar cable

here is some pix

This one you can see I soldered the wires to the back of the battery box, this way you can still use 3xAAA if you wanna

Here you see the female end of the rca connection

And one all together. I put the connection in the back I hope I can still put on a stock

also voltage up grade from 4.5 Vdc to 7.2 Vdc!


OK that is my first mod write up what did ya think?
Thanks Dan Beaver for helping me fix my pix

To get you pictures working, navigate to each pictures page on photobucket and click the "IMG" text field on the right side of the image, that will copy the code needed onto your clipboard, and you can just paste it directly onto the forum.

Also, please make more of an effort to use proper spelling and grammar in your posts. And don't "sign" your posts, your name is right next to your post already.

It wasn't really a write up. Next time, just slap your pictures here and we'll see it.

If anything I would think that having a reading disability would only push you to correct yourself more than a normal person, rather than use your condition like a crutch or excuse.

FWIW, I don't think using a 1/4" plug is a good idea. Too easy to short a battery, with how jacks work. I recommend using a proper power connector.

I am gonna make a dummy plug to cover the end when using AAA batts
Further more I am going for a makeshift look for a post apocalyptic feel
I am learning to age this plastic to make it look old and metal
When this blaster is done I will post more pix
