Yep... Its that time of year where we at S.C.U.N. hold our annual NIB/Stock/"Low-Tech on-the-spot Modding" Event. Yes, this is a "Stock Event" similar to a N.I.B. war but not quite as strictly aimed at using a brand new blaster, as it is going back to a time where you couldn't "science" a nerf gun beyond "slap a crayola marker on it"


Like every Stock War We've done, there will be about a half hour of “Field Modding Time” using the most “basic” of nerf modding supplies:
 

  • Hand tools like Screwdrivers, small hacksaws, pliers, wire cutters, x-acto knives or boxcutters, leatherman tool, hand drills, etc.
  • Electrical Tape/Duct Tape etc
  • Most Adhesives (includes Epoxy Putty, Super Glue, Plumber's Goop)
  • Rubber Bands/Mini bungee
  • Crayola Barrels or similar objects.
  • a 2k Pump tube is an acceptable way to mod something for Arrows.
  • Electronic mods to flywheel guns are allowed, this ranges from basic higher voltage batteries all the way to full motor replacement.

NO PVC or other Pipe/Tubing WILL BE ALLOWED.

Naturally, there will still be some safety bans, IE no making titans shoot micros. But pretty much anything else is fair game. Bring as many or as few blasters as you'd like, by leaving the ammo stock, we should have a fairly level playing field whatever you bring. Also you're allowed to bring any blasters that are already modded to these specifications, be it because you did it for one of the previous stock wars, or felt like modding in advance.

NOTE: If you want to make sure you have maximum recovery of your own stock ammo do something to CLEARLY IDENTIFY IT AS YOURS  I.E. Baghead uses neon pink marking stickers on his Vortex Discs and neon Pink sharpie dots on his Rival Balls. 

We'll start this earlier than usual, so that modding time doesn't cut too much into our playing time, so try to show up by 9:30 AM

The Date is SET as March 25th

Location:

21601 Snow Creek Dr

Walnut, CA 91789

Unlike our previous location for this annual event we don't have a conveniently located pizza place... but we do have several shops/restaurants surprisingly close to the location so I suggest you bring monies and or food and have everything you need to stay well hydrated. Hope to see you guys there.

Definitely interested. I'm starting to normally nerf with the SD contingent, but this one is still accessible.

I'll see if I can make it to this one, hopefully the stars align and I can actually nerf with you guys more than once a year.

If two powerful is a problem then just go with one powerful. I guess this style of hopper will work even beyond three powerful..

I might be there; I really like these wars but I'm not sure what my schedule is like.

 

Why are motor replaced electronic blasters allowed? That doesn't really feel like it's in the same spirit as the rest of the modifications (it has no bearing on me attending the war).

They're allowed because they're still simple mods. Basically, SAMBO is allowed.

So, somebody can do a full rewire and motor replacement on a rapidstrike, but putting a brass barrel in a nitefinder is banned? This seems like it really favors people who can do electrical work on the fly, and makes electrical blasters way better than everything else.

Dunno about the NF. But I'm assuming SAMBO to keep play on a level field. Decent tactics with a stock stryfe or hyperfire can still win the day against someone with a bladed 180 RS.

If soldering's allowed, why aren't you allowed to bring CPVC pipe? A little electrical tape, and it's a quick & dirty way to make Jumbo blasters (N-Strike MEGA) fire Micros. (Or, make Mega blasters fire Micro darts) Cramming pipe in is just as basic as soldering, but requires much less work.

Let's not all go crazy.

 

These rules are how they are because we have had no reason to change them in the 4 - 5 years that the annual event has happened.

 

Yes soldering and rewiring would be an on site process and would require some dedication to get done.

 

For the most part we have had a huge minority in the flywheel blaster department, but we don't want to exclude those who prefer to use them in a stock or semi-stock environment.

 

I don't want this thread to get derailed into a discussion on what would or would not make sense fora war like this so if you have any further concerns about blasters or anything else please feel free to pm me.

Thanks.

I should be there tomorrow, but I should also be late. Looking forward to busting out a Dart Zone Magnum.
