More of an HvZ mod, but here it is.

Forearm-mounted Swarmfire. The bracer opens up and latches and is well-padded internally. The trigger switch has been moved to a PVC ring to allow the hand to be used for other things while still making the blaster functional. Stock spring, 16.8V fully charged.

Both blasters are running off of Lithium Polymer Batteries housed internally.
Used predominantly for HVZ but their performance is fantastic.

Rear loading BuzzBee Airmax Extreme 10. Aluminum barrels, auto rotate still works. average of 160fps with #6 slugs.

'Elite Recon' with OMW stage 1+2 kits. Still waiting on stage 3, which is pre-order bonuses for stage 2; they were bumped back so OMw could ship out all the 10month old orders people had already paid for. Averaging 97.72fps with Pak-D darts.

PCB layout for the select-fire Rapidstrike controller I'm working on. (I suppose this would be considered a mod)

Top:
Posted Image

Bottom:
Posted Image

Note that these are just the prototype versions. On the final ones, the silkscreening will look a lot better, since that's not really very readable. The first three boards have been ordered, and will be showing up sometime in the next 2-3 weeks or so. The boards are .64"x1.02", and can be tucked away pretty much anywhere in the shell. This style will require some soldering, but i'm working on a version that shouldn't, though it will have to be slightly larger to accommodate the connectors. I'm going to be soldering everything in a reflow oven, since it's all surface mount, which should let me produce these pretty quickly. This version will likely be around $20 with free shipping, while the no-solder one will be about $25 + shipping, because the connectors are both expensive and increase the thickness of the packaging. The boards will be that shade of purple, and all contacts will be gold-plated.

Rapidstrike with two integrated Swarmfires

Rapidstrike with an integrated Roughcut. The Roughcut is raised up into the Rapidstrike's battery area and the batteries are relocated to a 4x AA tray. Gloss clear coats amplify any putty imperfections like a mother fucker, so it looks a bit sloppier than it actually is.

Hello Ladies and Gents. I made this beauty I called it the 4b Tornado. It contains a sonic bazooka (4b knock-off) and a old school panther inside a SS tornado strike shell. The panther is pumped by a SS maxx D-3000 pump.

The first three rapidstrike control boards arrived.

Posted Image

As Azrael brought up to me, some of the current-carrying traces are a bit small, and the SOT-23 transistors may not be able to handle the current consumed by the pusher motor. As such, none of these will be sold - they're just prototypes so I can see what's wrong with things.

I recently finished my first Stryfe mod, although I didn't do anything serious to it, it's a present for my nephew. I pretty much just took out the stupid plastic thing that jams it up a bunch and stuck two Trustfires in the battery box. It was also an experiment for my first detailing job. It didn't turn out too bad. Metallic blue with silver details.

It doesn't look like anything special with poor lighting;

There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

Continuing the Stryfe trend,

Posted Image

The above is a Stryfe with full lock removal, full rewire, Blade 180 motor replacement, flywheel wraps, thermistor/resistors removal, 30MM DC fans ontop the motors, Voltmeter in the stock, integrated laser sight, and... I think that's it. There are a total of three after market switches, one toggles the voltmeter and another toggles the fans. These are both run directly off the Stryfe main power supply. The last switch toggles the laser sight, which is run off 2 x AAA in the battery tray.

All the 'tacticool' crap is on their for /r/nerf, i run this blaster in the field with just a retaliator stock. Here is a gallery with 4 more pictures.

PS, I really like that blue Pointman9.

Yet another Stryfe.

Posted Image
The battery compartment now has a polycarbonate door held in place with thumb screws houses four Trustfires that have been split into two circuits. Three of the Trustfires power the RM2 motors and the fourth powers the LEDs.

Posted Image

The LEDs are trigger operated using one of the momentary switches from the electronic lock system relocated to where the mechanical trigger lock was housed.

Hey guys, decided to throw a post up in here about the only three finished blasters of mine so far (Loosely, the nitefinder still needs to be sealed and my firestrike needs some repairs.)

This is a christmas present for my sister, a modded and splatter-painted maverick:
Posted Image

Another christmas present for a good friend of mine, a minimized nitefinder, using cut up pieces of the dart holder/flashlight and a ton of epoxy putty to make a pretty awesome looking minimization in my opinion!
Posted Image

My pride and joy, and my first mod, a minimized firestrike, with a cpvc barrel and a very impressive air seal!
Posted Image
Posted Image

That's all for now, feel free to message me for any feedback or questions! I'm looking forward to christmas, hopefully I'll be getting a stryfe, a rapidstrike, and a rough cut to masterkey onto one of them (Still don't know which one), and I'll be modding my friend's newly acquired stryfe as well, so I look forward to that, anyways, that's all I have... for now!

My Rapidstrike modification:
Posted Image
Has a vinyl dye paintjob(thanks coop), rewire, locks removed, and 3 ultrafires. Very happy with it!

P.S. Don't do a rapidstrike for your first flywheel blaster, trust me I learned the hard way that rapidstrikes suck if you don't have a bunch of experience.

Pretty clean paintjob Moldoux, however I would recommend painting the sides of the bolt sled. The yellow doesn't match too well :P

Heres some of my recent work.
