Hi everyone,

 

I was wondering if the Orange Mod Works Unleashed kits for the Longshot cs-12 and Retaliator are easy to install and worth the $18.99 I'm paying for them. I have exprience with modding (recon, firestrike, reflex) and I know how the internals work and stuff. But my main questions are:

 

- Is it worth the money?

 

- Is it easy to install?

 

- Are the instructions clear?

 

Links to the Kits:

Thanks!

both of the orange mod works stage one kits are beautiful along with the stage 2. i currently am running a 3d printed pump grip, orange mod works stage 1 and partial stage 2 (no bolt sled, due to the AR being removed and i already cracked a plunger tube). with an 8kg spring from blasterparts (you can order it from containmentcrew.com and get it super cheap. i personally love it and its my main primary for everything. hope this helps.

I have been wondering the same thing.  I know a friend of mine has an orange mod works kit for the Alpha Trooper and it performs incredibly well.  The orange mod works website doesn't do a very good job explaining the differences between their kits.

I have the alpha trooper with the kit installed and shoots incredibly hard. When I first shot it, with the kit installed, I could feel the gun vibrate. I highly recommend it, but back to the main idea. I'm trying to find if the kits are good for their respective gun, not the difference.

I have bought the kit for the Retaliator, and can say that the kit is easy to install and instructions clear, but may not be worth the money. With the kit installed, the Retaliator can shoot about 90 feet. All you need to do to install the kit is remove the stock spring and replace it with the modded spring, put the upgraded catch spring on the metal catch mechanism and replace the stock catch mechanism with that. Then, you put the metal reinforcement plate in the stock adapter.

 

Even though there is only a 15 foot range increase, I feel the kit is worth it.

OMW is not the only kit maker. The Australians have one and Blaster Parts exists. Blaster Parts can be sourced in the US through Containment Crew. All offer tons of upgrade at different Price points. Will you be doing a Brass Breech mod or installing a pump grip? The OMW stuff isn't as good as the other options in my opinion. Stage 1 is good I feel the Oz Nerf Nerd kit was just as good though. Stage 2 is unnecessary in my experience if you know how to pad a plunger. I have not broken a bolt sled even with a Blaster Parts spring and a brass breech. But I do take meticulous care of my blasters, Some may say too much.

Yeah I don't mind paying the $18 for a 15-foot increase. I feel like it is worth it. So I would buy the Stage 1 kit but I have heard, the metal trigger from the stage two kit is slow and the priming slide requires much more effort, is that true?

I'm not doing a brass breach just because I feel the breach is alright as it is so I don't really see the need to reinforce it after the stage 2 kit. I'm also not going install a pump grip because I think the priming slide is fine (for me.) I have heard of Oz Nerf Nerd but I have seen the kit and I think it just comes with the spring and some other thing which I don't know. I don't know how to pad the plunger head. I assume it's like applying felt on the plunger head?

 

Does anyone know about the LS kit?

I have an Oz Nerf Nerd kit in my longshot and I fell its definately worth the money if your looking for something that shoots really hard, from what I've seen people get 120-130 fps. All those random metal bit are reinforcement peices and the large orange peice fills in all the longshot's dead space. The only draw back is that it takes a bit of work and you have to do some cutting and gluing, but Oz Nerf Nerd does have a pretty thorough video on how to install it. Though I still find the kit easier then doing an ar removal and dead space reduction (general mods people do for performance upgrade). The kit is about the same price as OMW stage 1 & 2 after shipping and currency difference so Its really up your preference. OMW is one of the easier drop in kits, Oz Nerf Nerd is better if your willing to take the time to install it and your games allow those FPS.

I saw Bobololo's video on the Oznerfnerd kit and I'm leaning towards buying that. I have two questions though. What will I have to cut and also can I use glue instead of epoxy?

No you must use epoxy glue is no where near strong enough. If you can't do it yourself hire someone to do it for you.

Epoxy can be found at just about any hardware store it comes in two parts and you have to mix them togeather. As far as the cutting Oz Nerf Nerd has a great guide on how to install it on his website hobbymods.com . But if you wondering how difficult it is its one cut with a rotory pipe cutter in the middle of the receiver and one cut with a hack saw in the back of the receiver.
