My first mod. I brought it back out of retirement and fixed it up with a better seal, better barrel, and coupler. The light has been replaced with more dart storage. Since it stores 9 darts in total, and has a rather Luger like profile I opted to name it "Red 9".

A rebarrelled Tek 3. It takes a hacksaw to get the barrels off, but it's worth it for the improved range. It may have a tiny plunger but the spring in that thing is pretty strong for something so tiny. An ideal assassin gun.

Because I am broke, I have been doing what any broke nerfer does. Retooling old guns!!!

Remeber this guy?
Posted Image
I got tired of his bitchin' so I gave him what every guy wants (sarcasm) a makeover:

Posted Image
side one
Posted Image
side two
Posted Image
front
he now sports a snazzy red PJ (Tig is right; red is a bitch to work with, even though it looks cool), a 1/2' PVC coupler and an off center pumping handle. I'd like to say that I did that on purpose but I didn't. I just screwed up. It actually feels more ergonomic to pump though; try it! Ranges: can shoot through cardboard. 'nuff said.

Next up is a 3k that has been lying around in my shop that I finally got around to:
Posted Image
It sports a removable stock-kudos to the unholy 3 for the idea
Posted Image
rearloading of course, and a MS pump. Ranges: couldn't test 'em cuz of the bib bad bully below. Suffice it to say that it's good, real good. bitch.

Finally, we have the aforementioned big bad bully below. it is currently a contestant in the Nerf Revolution Cosmetics Contest. Wish me luck!!!
So here's what I began with:

This sat in pieces collecting dust for 6 months, I used it only once at the exSOF war in August..

I put it back together only to find that I really don't have a use for it, so I'm selling it.

It has a [k25] spring,a 1' 17/32" brass insert and that is a different turret, the Etape is mostly for show, though it does add to the purpleness.

Little something I did a while ago....

Wiring is essentially invisible on this side

Posted Image

But there is some visible on this side.. was basically impossible to have none visible near the battery due to space restrictions..

Going to attempt this again, trying for less hotspots/more even coverage

I finally got around to finishing my stefan drum.
Thanks to Zorn for posting his write-up. After reading it I figured out the problems with my first version.

It always jams when the follower is entering the clip, but it is fixed by moving the jam wheel a tiny bit.

Nothing new, but it works well and it's been a while so I figured I may as well post it. The strap runs through mechanics' wire which is just wrapped around the edges of the gun. I had to dremel the shell a bit to get it the way I wanted. I can pump it with my left hand by putting my thumb behind the pump shaft and holding the pump between my 2nd & 3rd fingers.

Now all it needs is a tank expansion.

My 2nd RSCB BBB. This time the clip is in the top rail and goes all the way to the back of the blaster. It is made from 5/8" PETG with a 9/16" breech in the gap where the shells come apart. It holds 10 1.5" stefans. There is a replacement plunger head and a [k26] + BBB spring combo. On the PETG is a piece of thinwall PVC that acts as a stopper so the blaster cannot be overdrawn. I'm experimenting with a 6" and 5" barrel setup.

Finished contract for Rogue.

Meet: the new and improved RogueFinder.

Posted Image
Draw extension, INSANE padding(pic below), very strong catch spring to hold a beastly spring, ziptie keeps the top of the gun held together, bottom dremeled out in preparation for an integration.
Posted Image
I decided to keep the original spring that was in it before the draw extension, but due to the draw extension the spring would hit full compression, which severely weakens the spring. Therefore, the massive padding. It also serves as a cushion from impact and silences the blaster!

With a 5 inch CPVC barrel and single BB stefans(1/5''), it hits cardboard from 20 feet away very hard. My guess is roughly 70 feet.
