...

Sorry guys, I needed a gay title.

To give a little background on my nerfing status right now, it's about zero. I started taking AP (College Credit) courses at our school, and the workloads insane. I've finally worked up some free time, and plan to do some modding this weekend though, as I know all of you care when and why I mod.

This is a mod I did at the end of the summer, but just never got around to posting.

I traded my freind my nested SM1500 (god I loved that gun) for a Secret Shot I and Secret Shot II (without the secret shot). They were halfway modded or so, and I figured I wanted to do something other than single them. Something...amazing.

I sorta succeeded.

What I did was I found a peice of AirTech 2000 pump tubing that I had cut out for my very first n00b clip design back when I was a n00b, hence the name. It's three inches inches long with the middle two cut out so that darts could be fed in.

Posted Image

Surprisingly, for some reason I kept it, and it got me thinking of the clip design.

Then I realized it was crap and wouldn't work, which is why I hadn't used the tube yet, but I realized that the breech would work.

So...

Posted Image

Heres what it looked like when I got it. Simple 4" CPVC single barrel mod.

Opening it up, I saw...

Posted Image

...THE INTERNALS!!!

Since I wanted a more centered barrel, I took the plunger casing, and

Posted Image

sanded it

Posted Image

All smooth.

I placed a peice of CPVC against it, traced around it, then cut out the peice, but left a bit for some CPVC to sit on.

I wanted to have a basic pump breech, where you pull the barrel forward, drop a dart in, then push closed. If there wasn't anything behind the barrel however, the dart would just be pushed straight into the plunger tube. I couldn't have that. But I couldn't have a large peice of CPVC, since I only had the 1/2" of AT2K tube to work with. I cut an 1/8" of CPVC, and sanded it down. It was a bitch.

Posted Image

I covered the outside with a very small amount of hot glue, then quickly shoved it into the AT2K tube so it was even with one end.

Posted Image

Now, my intention the entire time was to use the little shot-switcher slash ammo holder on the top, since it bugged me just sitting there. So I glued the breech onto the plunger tube aligning it so that it was along the same line as the ammo holder. That way, it would follow along with the barrel-plunger assembly when you turned it! NIFTY, huh?

You might ask "Why the fuck would you do that? It would just be pointed to the side, inside the plastic of the gun! You couldn't even reach it. You're retarded."

Well, I felt like cutting half of the gun off.

So

...I did.

-end first-



I put the gun back together.

Finished:

To the side, so you can load:

Up, so you can shoot if you feel like moving it:

..well thats it. It gets ranged between 60-75', depending on the stefan you use.

That is nifty!
I am not a fan of the shell being cut because it makes the gun look messy but it is very functional.
I love it when old saved parts serve a purpose in time.
Congrats on being the first to post a Secret shot write up on NH.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Good job Sinfil. I agree with forsaken though. I would think the cut case would weaken the overall gun. Other than that good job.

First off: YES AP credit classes are a pain but its better then takeing them in collage (at least thats what people are telling me)

Anyhoo back on subject: Yea this IS prety sweet!!! Im not positive on this one but just as a clarification: so the thing works by:
A.) you turn the ammo holder to the side, opening up the breach.
B.)place dart in.
C.) turn ammo holder to top position, closeing the breach.
D.) cock, fire

Also in regards to the "first SS1 mod on NH" thing, thats really weird that no-one has done a tribarrel mod writeup yet...

But yea great job om an extreamly clever, and fairly clean (yes I know how much of a pain it is to cut through SS1 plastic: its all brittle and stuff) Mod.

Keep up the good work.

First Secret Shot mod? Man. I feel special.

elf_avec_gun, you make me feel retarded in a good way.

That is how I should have done it.

...how I can do it...

It's actually a lot simpler than that, although it would work better and more efficiently the way you described it. I'll have to modify the design...thanks!

The way it works is you turn it to the side to expose the breech, pull the barrel forward, drop a dart in, push the barrel back. Then you turn it back.

...Saying it that way after I could have made it work by the turning motion...

Man.

Sorry to dissapoint.

As in all my mods, I really don't care about aesthetics one bit. To misquote thirst, I believe, "I'd rather have a big pink dildo that fires stefans 200' than an amazingly sexy peice of gun that fires them 30' "

How do we make it mandatory for new comers to actually read the CoC??? This sort of thing is happening quite often...

I know, we could have VACC and OMC show up at their house and give them a pop quiz. if they pass, they get approved for membership. If they fail, Forsaken Angel shows up with all his guns and proceeds to chase them out of the country with flying foam!

at the risk of being flamed, I have a suggestion....

Why don't the mods just lock all the topics that are over a certain period of time in age?

Because, occasionally, something useful will be added to a topic, like if the starter of said topic has an update or something.

We should just leave the topic alone after someone tells the person. It's been delt with, the person knows, people don't need to keep talking about it. I'm sorry if I got someone mad by telling the person not to necro.
