So you could do this with anything as long as you cut it to fit the shell of the nerf gun you are attaching it to? Awesome writeup, this is really inspiring! I am going to scour my closet for old plastic toys, see if anything looks usable...
I live in a country where we have a rather lack of a nerf choices, I am soon going to Europe and will buy a assortment of elite guns, the main problem with my current arsenal is i lack a fast firing primary, as I have a limited budget and am already picking up the alpha trooper is it necessary to forgo the rampage and buy the swarmfire? My main problem is im not sure the SF is worth the 50 Euro price? As this is my first post any advice, criticism etc. is welcomed.
Please do not see this as a which gun is best thread
As therealnerfjunkies said, definitely get the Stryfe, maybe 2 of them. The Stryfe is one of the best Nerf guns out there for rapid-fire combat, HvZ, and indoor warfare. The Swarmfire is decent and definitely has potential if you mod it correctly but I do not like it's shell design. I don't think it is worth the 50 Euro price, especially when the only advantage it has over the Stryfe is being able to use non-streamline/elite darts...
I don't think you need to buy both the Alpha Trooper and the Rampage, they are essentially the same gun but with a different magazine orientation and priming mechanism. I would recommend getting the Retaliator for it's accessories, rather than the Rampage. Good luck!
Sweet mod, I will definitely do it once I get another Strongarm. Is this mod detrimental to ranges at all?
Cutting the corner off of the front piece is very helpful, I did 481IceDragon's mod to make the turret drop out more and the turret dropped out unevenly. I cut the front part as you described and now the turret comes out level. Thanks for the guide, good luck with the mod contest!
