I have done the crayola mod on a Berserker before and it turned out great. I call it Ultra Rainbow... Taste the Rainbow.

I used some Dollar Tree markers. All I had to do was take apart the marker and stick it into the tubes and it worked. I just got a bunch of crayola markers from one of my son's friends and I did the same thing with them to another Berserker and the performance was sad. At first I thought that the Berserker was bad but when I put the Dollar Tree marker tubes in it works great like it should. I also took a drill and drilled out the ridges on the inside of the crayola markers and it helped some but not much.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong, or what else I need to do to make it work with the crayola markers?

Thanks

If you could post some close up photos along with internals, we could help. Make sure to check that everything is epoxied or glued completely.

Some internal and close up pictures would really help. Make sure that everything is epoxied or glued completely.

I can not stand idly by while I see another nerfer using markers to rebarrel a blaster. This is thing causing your problems with the other markers, but is probably hindering performance in general; you have a massive amount of deadspace in your system. The berzerker turret blaster has very little plunger volume, so you are probably loosing a very significant performance. Also don't use koosh darts for anything besides flywheel blasters. They can be a bitch.

If he hasn't even opened the blaster, then there is no point in internal pictures. And he seems like he hasn't glued anything, so that is also a moot point.

On Topic: As far as the crayola barrels, if you are having better performance with the dollar tree markers, then why not just stick to them? Your darts may just fit better in them, and the barrels should be cheaper anyway.

Spud is correct. I haven't opened it up. That is what I liked about the marker mod is that it was quick and easy. The only glue I have is on the scatter gun attachment that I made for the missile part.

I wanted to use the crayola markers (which I know can work) because they were free. If I have to buy them it adds an addition $4-$5 in cost to the blaster and that is a big chunk of the profit.

As far as dead space goes, I realize there is some of that but with the dollar tree markers in there I am getting elite blaster range. Also I really like the koosh darts and find that they work very well.
