I stumbled upon a couple of youtube videos and blog pages about this R type ultra match blaster as well as the "bird or prey". After a lot of reading and watching I am very compelled to make one due to the rage claims of 140- 200 feet. This sounded ridiculous to me at first but I found a page selling these blasters as well as a pretty convincing range test video. I am currently in the middle of making two of these out of the blasters used in the videos I found. If anyone knows what I'm talking about or has made one of these before and has some tips on the mod please let me know or If this is all just bs and I'm wasting my time let me know.

For anyone that does not know what I am talking about and is curious, the general idea is to make a high powered fairly accurate blaster based off of a night finder type blaster, usually a fire strike or a pink crush.

I'm assuming your talking about Chris Cartaya's modded blasters.
A couple months ago there was a controversy towards his range testing methods and it eventually came to the fact that he wasn't using stefans as well as breeze/angle.
He mods his blasters well, and they do shoot above 70 feet consistently with stefans and they are pretty accurate.

These "R type ultra match blasters" aren't anything new or special, they're just modifications of existing nerf blasters (albeit with a high spring load and comprehensive mods.) I've handled them and have been shot by them and really aren't anything new to what the community has been doing for a while. They can be compared to a nicely modified nightfinder.

An aside: Your post quality is pretty poor. You don't link to an actual video nor do you present any new or interesting ideas. Furthermore it looks like you spent about half a second on your title, which doesn't really describe what you found.

Yes he is one of the people I was reading about. That makes sense, too bad they don't live up to what he says they are. Oh well, I'm more of a homemade blaster guy anyways. Ill just stick to my rainbow pistole

I am aware that they are just modifications of existing blasters.

Thank you for answering my question, I appreciate the response as well as the constructive criticism. I will keep what you said in mind next time I post.

Thank you for your honest opinion and assessment, Can't wait till our next SCUN war. I am having a war in Porter Ranch on the 15th of March if you'd like to go.

I don't mean to throw everybody off, I just don't like the #6 Slugs, I never have, just a personal preference. Not trying to use a different dart to claim "hey this is as far as a Stefan would go" I just like the Xplorer dart system better and trying to say "with this shooting system these shots are possible". Stefans are much more practical than waiting over a month for new silicone tips and foam and not only that, most will never try to bag people at long range like I do.

As for my pistols, half the volume, twice the yield, close to the same results. They are small, light, single stroke prime and concealable but there is a price to be paid for that, they will never be as good as a well built homemade or an Airblaster, but for me, it's all I need :)
