Coral Viper Mod
Posted 17 April 2006 - 08:07 AM
Basically flipped it around, removed the tubing, put a 2.5in. piece of 1/2 CPVC inside a 4in. piece of 3/4 CPVC (not sure what it is, some grey pipe we had in the basement), and glued it onto the plunger barrel.
Then I fashioned a trigger and pivot point from an old CD and piece of hanger wire.
I didn't want to waste any of the old parts, so with a bit of dremel work and various glues, I managed to fit them back on nicely.
Here's a size comparison pic with a NF.
Ranges aren't all the great yet, I'm only getting 40-50ft. Haven't had a chance to try bands yet, so I'll update when I do.
Also, yeah this is my first post, but I'm not a noob to Nerfing or the NIC either. I've been Nerfing on and off since I was 9, but mostly through middle school (in college now.) Had a lame Geocities Nerf site and everything. So anyway, hi everyone
And here's a bit of what I'm working on next...

The Coral Viper was a blaster that I once wrote off as "unmodifiable". I now can admit wrong to that.
You turned a fairly useless-for-real-Nerf-warring blaster, and in my opinion, made it usable in the practical sense (meaning the form, reloadability, and ability to actually aim-and-shoot), and with some sense of style!
No need to "prove yourself not a noob". Your initial work shows that. Your first post is a practical modification that turned a 'loser' into a 'bruiser' (well, good luck on the second part, but you're almost there!)
Keep up the good work, dude. Post progress on the NitroQuad; is that what it is? I don't recognize it just by looking at it like that. Then again, you've probably been playing much longer than me.

What else have you filed under "unmodifiable?" I'm always looking for more test subjects.
