The Possibility Of Lemons
Posted 30 September 2006 - 10:10 PM
I get 75' on my recently modded maveric! its no lemon at all! whered you get that idea! Besides these have good rof.
What mod did you do? Personally, I agree with ompa, except I don't like to swear. Either you're using estimated ranges and you suck at it, or you had like a Catagory 5 hurricane's wind going with you. Either way, HOW THE CRAP DID YOU GET 70+ FEET WITH A PEICE OF SEMI-CRAP GUN LIKE THE MAVERICK??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
EDIT: sorry about that, I just get extremely pissed when idiots do completely stupid posts like that. Find out the ranges, use a measuring tape, and tell us the truth, bucko.

I've had similar situations that you have had, ompa. I remember when I first got my SM1500, and everyone reported 90 ft+ ranges when they single barreled it. I single barreled mine, and achieved ranges of around 70 feet. While not a bad range, its 20 feet short of what other people were claiming, and I just thought I was a terrible modder. I now think that it is more likely that the ranges people posted were enhanced a tad, and it left a more honest range tester like myself to feel inadequate.
Basically, we should only really trust ranges that are given out by people who have a history of being honest members of the community.

I think the biggest current case of lemons is the new Magstrike. I don't own one, but I have heard multiple users talking about the different amount of pumps it takes to unload a full clip, even on stock guns. Sometimes it was off by even ten pumps. Also, when my friend bought his first NiteFinder, it couldn't shoot a dart more then ten feet. After restrictor removal it was back to normal.
I have a magstrike and let me tell you something.. I have only not fired a whole clip once due to not enough pumps. When people claim that they fire 2 darts out of a full pump they are complete liars.
I also have a couple of friends that own magstrikes and they agree with me.

Did anyone else notice that the last semi-appropriate post was about 20 months old? Didn't think so. Lets leave this thread alone.

So anyway All I did to the NF was take out the AR. I have done this mod numerous times and did not touch any internals (not even the light) of the gun. So I know for a fact that this gun is faulty.
Instead of getting really pissed off I just went back to target and got another NF. Now some 5 year old is going to have a NF that shoots hard due to AR mod. (If it works)
This is the first time I ever had "lemon" guns.
