Hey everyone, one of my buddies has an old nerf barricade and stockade laying around that he is wanting to update after playing with my stryfe.

For the older barricade, I remember reading or seeing somewhere that its possible to put just stockade flywheels in the barricade so it can shoot newer elite darts instead of just older whistler darts. Is this true? All it needs is stockade wheels? Will stryfe, rapidstrike, rayven or better yet Worker plastic flywheels fit in the barricade cage? Will worker wheels fit with minimal grinding of the cage?

For the stockade, I also remember seeing or reading somewhere that its possible to put a barricade flywheel cage/130 motors into a stockade along with stockade flywheels to get rid of the crappy stockade pancake motors. Is it true that barricade flywheel cage and 130 motors with stockade wheels fit in a stockade ? Will shell cutting be needed for that? Can Worker plastic flywheels be used in the barricade cage/130 motors in a stockade?

For both, are there any other (stryfe, rapidstrike, rayven etc...) cages that are interchangable with the barricade/stockade (aside from eachother maybe) in hopes of a metal cage ____cade?

We are looking to update the barricade to shoot elites with stock barricade 130 motors on full rewire and 2 efest imr and full lock removal. Hopeflly with worker plastic flywheels.

We are looking to update the stockade to run stock (barricade,stryfe etc) 130 motors on full rewire and imr's with lock removal. Hopefully again with worker plastic flywheels.

If anyone know anything about the older barricades and stockadess please chime in.

1: theoretically any flywheels should be able to be used in the barricade cage with modification to some degree, but i know for sure that stryfe/rapidstrike flywheels work with just a tiny bit of trimming to the cage.
2: the barricade/stockade cages are completely unique and stryfe/other replacement cages can't be used without some serious shell cutting and re-moulding.
Hey but one things for sure, DO NOT BE A NOOB AND WRAP THE FLYWHEELS IN ELECTRICAL TAPE!!!!
Hope i helped.

Def not wrapping flywheels lol. Either use the stock stockade wheels, my stock stryfe wheels, or hopefully plastic worker wheels if they fit.

Our biggest concern is getting the barricade cage/motors into the stockade shell without cutting. Any know for sure if they interchange?

Ive replaced the motors in a stockade for a friend with motors the same dimensions as the stock motors and no cutting was required.
And may i ask why you are looking to interchange the stockade cage with the barricade cage? I do not believe that it would have any advantages over the stockade cage.
Or is there confusion on how to open the barricade cage? If so, you will need to remove all of the screws from the cage and cut any solvent weld holding it together with a dremel, xacto knife, hacksaw ect. You can google how to open the cages if you are experiencing any trouble.

I have modded two barricades, you can install containment crew wheels with some minimal trimming of the flywheel cage. Worker wheels should be the same diameter and work just as well.

 

I run mine on two IMR and have not rewired. On one occasion a blaster was accidentally switched on in a backpack and ran until the batteries were completely dead without failing or overheating, so I doubt a rewire is necessary to run two 3.7 volt red Efest IMRs with one dummy cell.

 

I personally also recommend removing the barrel while you're in there, it's a simple mod while the flywheel cage is open and it makes the blaster more compact and holsterable. It additionally  makes it much easier to clear jams. Downside is dirt can get in, so don't leave them laying around during outside wars if you do this.

We are hoping to put the cage and 130 motors from the barricade into his stockade along with the stockade flywheels or hopefully worker plastic flywheels, then 2 imr and 1 dummy. Then probably put stockade cage/crap motors back in the barricade with barricade wheels.

We like the power and motors in the barricade more than stockade and prefer the blue stockade over yellow barricade, and elite style darts over taggers/whistlers. So we are looking "upgrade" his stockade using the barricade motors/cage/elite wheels and downgrading the barricade that barely gets used with the leftovers (stockade motors/cage/barricade wheels) as we hardly ever use it or tagger/whistler darts.

We like stockade motors much more than stockade, and using barricade cage will allow use of meishel/mtb motors etc in the future

That seems like a lot of extra work to switch colors, but I suppose it's not more work than actually painting it.

It does. But we both like the looks of both "cades" and don't want to paint them. We'd have to pretty much fully dissamble them to paint anyways, so figure we might put all the best parts (barricade motors/flywheel cage) into the preffered, frequently used stockade shell, and put the leftover stockade motors/cage back into the lesser used barricade shell.

After barricade cage/motors, rewire, imr's and maybe worker flywheels (stock stockade wheels at minimum) it should put the stock stockade to complete shame and make the stock barricade feel insecure.
