In Topic: Nerf Recons

14 July 2008 - 10:22 PM

I am a humans vs zombies player (nerf game, played at Goucher college and other colleges) and once i shotgun modded my recon (done by OberonFox) its all I used. I was disappointed with it out of the box, but it has a lot of options in terms of modding which really made a difference.

It makes me happy when I help others. Granted I took off the shotgun and barrel extension to make it a snub carbine, but I still love it.

Mikey, If you haven't done a single mod before the Recon may be a bit confusing. My suggestion is to go grab a dirt cheap NF and do one of the many documented and excellent mods for it to get a general feel for at least how Nerf plastic cuts and melts. That and then you'll have a pretty awesome pistol.

Love the RoF on my Recon. As said earlier it's a fun gun, not the best, but definitely fun. Welcome to the Haven!

Read his post again. He's not calling Ompa a noob. God I hate that word.

They make one specifically for cutting metal.

Ah. Thanks.
Diamond I assume?

I think so. They come stacked in a little plastic tube for like $10. I haven't even stopped using the first one yet, and it's great for cutting through about anything: including Nerf plastic.

@Dayko Making it look kinda like a Sci-Fi blaster was one of the reasons I wanted to put the extra tube on the back instead of the front. And I'm a massive Star Wars geek so you're comment comes as high praise. :]

I too am a Star Wars geek. Now all you need to do is a paint job. May I suggest a Star Wars theme :D ?

Workin' on it :o

While on the topic of springs, how does one go about cutting a spring to size?
I have had no luck doing so...
damn cordless dremel.

I use a cordless dremel just fine. You just have to get the appropriate cutting disk. They make one specifically for cutting metal.

Copy Pasta'd from one of my other posts on similar topic....

There are various free or extremely cheap image alteration programs, like Gimp ,out there if you can't afford Photoshop. All of them have a crop feature. Take your picture at maximum resolution from a distance that will allow full focus of whatever you're taking the picture of, and then crop and resize to appropriate web proportions.
