This is my (crappily painted) modded NF.
Posted Image

And here is my most recent accomplishment: a modded Crossfire. AR removed, spring replaced (by the way, it's a Tek Six spring [PERFECT FOR THIS GUN]), CPVC barrel, minimized, and painted. I call it the Luger (for obvious reasons).

My latest mod. I'm not sure when I'll get around to posting a writeup. I don't even know what this thing is.

That thing looks like a do-it yourself abortion kit from the 1960s. I bet you hook it up to an airtank.

I ordered a SNAP from Carbon and I've been working on it a bit. I like how it is turning out

Posted Image

So far, I've switched out the 1 1/4 to 1/2 bushing to a threaded version so I can change barrels easily and added the stock, which is 1/2 in PVC with 3/4 in to 1/2 in T's to cock the gun. It kind of works like a xbow/+bow and so far it seems rather comfortable. Eventually I'll be painting it and such.

Geeze, I haven't really posted anything in here ages...well, I have a few new mods to share and write ups to do, I'll get around to the write-ups when I feel Not Lazy

Airtech Jet Squadron:
Posted Image
Barrel replacement, Pump Plugged, Custom Fabricated tail fin shoots pretty nice, only Nerf Semi-auto that isn't a splitfire/spideyDTG that I've successfully modded.

2x Tron-ified Disk Shot pistols:

Posted Image

the neon purple is custom mixed and was applied with my new airbrush, these were more of a "proof of concept" as I start to do a few new mods here and there, expect more detailed "Tron-ified" blasters from me in the future. In terms of mods nothing too special, Barrel replacement, and a piece of sheet plastic inside the shell that lets the ammo holders hold stefans without losing them into the gun. These also have an amazing spring replacement that gives them LNL-esque ranges, I'll discuss this stuff further when I get around to the write up

The Magic Stick:

Posted Image

A National Geographic Roto Rocket Launcher, that I've turned into a "large grade arms" weapon. Shoots Nerf Balls, Party Favor Mini-Vortex footballs, Foam practice golf balls and titan rockets, depending on which size barrel I have in the coupler, and how I feel like terrifying people for the day. it out performs a Titan in all range tests, and as such we decided to ban single barrel micro/mega use, it's devastating enough as is.

I've also done six minimized TTGs recently... when I can get them in one place, I'll shoot a pic.

Tronification: Bags, you're a dork...but I love it.
Air Jet Squadron: I'm currently working on one of those. I may have irrepairably broken it, but we'll see.
Mini vortex cannon: Pure awesomeness! What kind of range do you get with the vortex balls?

The funniest part is that I Haven't even seen Tron, I just like the artistic style. (glowing neon circuitry? how can you go wrong with that?) in terms of dorkiness just wait, I have a one-up on this in nerd factor in the works (think transformers beast wars)

I have plans to do more to the jet squadron, and it's really the only one where the write up isn't waiting because I'm lazy...the bottom front is begging for an integration:
Posted Image

on the rocket launcher, I'm not positive, it can shoot a nerf ball roughly 50 feet (they curve, but it still goes almost 50 feet) and it shoots the footballs much further than that, probably around 60-70, although, they're most deadly from about 40-50 as they're hella accurate (because of the fins, I have to twist them to fit them in the barrel) which makes them fly out rifled and hard to dodge. (ask cheese-boy, he took at least one square in the chest) I absolutely love how great this gun performs. I forgot to mention how beastly a shotgun this thing is, it can shoot 3 nerf balls at once easily, or even shoot a spread of darts and balls (load in a ball in the front and back of the barrel with darts in the middle=ultimate shotty.

Finally got a arensal pic, but I forgot I left out my two mavericks.. but they are both out of order at the moment so...

Posted Image

Was only gonna shoot a pic with my LS, AT2k Rifle, and my G36C, but I decided to throw in all my others. Of course that G36C is an airsoft one, and is only there for scale...

Anyways, onto my AT2K Rifle:

Posted Image

I LOVE the ergonomics created by all the cardboard tubing. IT HAS NOT BEEN WAR TESTED, I'm guessing a fair bit of it will be crushed and etc. during an actual full blown war, but as it is right now, the outer barrel and stock aren't going ANYWHERE. I hope nothing goes wrong with the internals lol because it will be HELL to open that thing up again. Nevermind I also hotglued the actual PETG barrel to the shell. The stock is nice and firm, I feel no qualms with picking it up by the barrel or stock, or using the stock. The only thing that shakes is the air pump...

Anyways, I also was able to fit 4 PETG tubes in the lower tube of the stock, so I use that to hold extra darts, but they aren't really handy, so I hot glued one of the NF's dart holders on the side of it for a more reachable position during a war. I might wrap it all in duct tape to keep it from melting in the rain.

The performance itself on it is 60-70feet with 5-6 pumps. Which is a vast improvement over my LS's 30-40feet. And I call BS to anyone who says that putting a NF spring in their LS gets them 90feet... it's not happening. I've taken out the LS, I've taken out the dart stick/tooth. I've stretched my LS's spring (and YES it DID improve power, it's been twice as long ever sense I stretched it) and I've put in a stretched NF spring and it STILL, ONLY gets 30-40feet.

I'm not BSing you, I got 60-70ft with a nf spring added. That's pretty normal I think. Maybe you shouldn't of stretched the spring(s).

Here's my Warthog that I'm trying to brass breech, but for some reason, ranges suck. Also, next to it, is my two nf plungers I am going to combine.

Kid flash, how's that aluminum working for you? How does it's ID compare to OMC PETG (is it the same stuff CS uses?)?

First shot.

On a side note, Bags, that DiskShot is sick (Tron rox btw), and I really regret not trying harder to get that Plane.... How are the ranges and accuracy?

Here is my longshot/tek10 integration that I just got finished today:
Posted Image

Posted Image

The Tek 10 has only barrel replacement and ar removed and gets 35-40 ft.
The longshot has barrel replacement, ar removed, and nf spring added and gets 55-60ft.

The tek10's rotation mechanism has issues. It is loose and doesn't stay lined up perfectly with the plunger tube and so some darts are fired underpowered. Anyone ever encountered and fixed this problem? If so, just PM me so that this topic isn't full of text.

Today I finally stopped by ACE and picked up some CPVC and two couplers, so I did this this very sexy and clean NF mod and now I got pics!

Posted Image

My nightfinder with my "magazine"

Posted Image

While playing around with my new-found couplers, I found out that the Maverick dart holders fit amazingly well in a coupler after a small bit of E-tape.

The ranges I get with the CPVC is great. Much better then before with my PETG. You might think I'll lose power with that maverick magazine thing, but no, it's still the same amount of power going through.

That truly is bitchin', NF. I like.

Here's my 3k that I just finished. Something of an experiment- I'm seeing whether smallish air guns such as the 3k work better with PETG or CPVC. I intended to do one of each, but decided it was too hard to make sure all the variables were in check. So...
