In Topic: NDA Exclusive - Nerf Gatling foam-ball blaster

Did it have a decent rate of fire? The last thing I want is to drop 50$ on a "full auto" nerf blaster and end up with another nitron.

In Topic: Rough Cut 2x4 Raider Fore-grip and AR Spring replacement

Cool experiment with the AR springs, too bad it didn't work out. The raider priming handle doesn't look good on the rough cut in my opinion, but your mod is really clean and modded rough cuts are rare. It's good to see some one doing something with this blaster.

How do you plan on reinforcing the handle? Filling it with epoxy putty might do the trick, but that would be a lot of putty.

In Topic: Question to all you modders

I would like to see all previous tacticool accessories available for individual sale, or as mission kit packages, as well as completely new accessories that you can buy individually. Most of the blasters you can buy right now have tactical rails, but very few come with anything to make use of those rails, especially in the elite and vortex lines.

I would love to see a wide release of the pinpoint sight, as well as a flashlight. New adjustable, and folding stocks would be welcome, maybe a folding stock with an switchable attachment for holding clips, or loose ammo. A few different styled barrel attachments would be nice, some with integrated blasters maybe, some short, some long, different designs on the outer barrels.

How about a nerf gun cam? Mattel put a camera in a Barbie, there's no reason Hasbro can't put one on a tac rail.

The idea is with a decent selection of accessories, even people who are not modders can personalize the look and function of their blasters, without having to resort to eBay. And since the super soaker lines are using tac rails now, it's not just the nerf lines that benefit from this.

Speaking of modders, why not just release a plate that slides onto a rail, something like what the stampede shield rests on? A blank plate would allow us to zip tie, glue, bolt, or epoxy whatever we want onto it and make a custom accessory ourselves.

I can see drum clips selling well as mission kits. For instance, a drum, a fill of elite darts, and a bandolier with a drum holder attachment on it, or a drum and stock that can hold a drum.

As far as what I would like to see in blasters themselves? Give me an elite Vulcan.

... Oh and grenades, something safe to throw that will launch a dozen darts or so when it hits the ground. That would be awesome.

In Topic: Rampage priming issues

Awesome! Thanks Boff :)

As for the priming issue, I had a piece inside the magwell flipped the wrong way so the magazine lock wasn't unlocking. I should have taken some pictures of those internals but I didn't think about it till after it was already reassembled. Thank you everyone for the help! Here's the finished blaster:

Retaliator stock, and AR removed. Paint job was inspired by Black_Chrome's awesome raider in the paint job thread. Kind of the reverse of his with some metallic red thrown in to spice things up.

Thanks Querty for replying and the PMs, I'm looking into that and located the lock, but I think I found the culprit to my problem. Unfortunately, I have no clue where it came from or where it's supposed to go. I looked back in my screw/small parts container and realized I had a left over piece :( here are some pictures:

My first thought was that it goes in the magwell, but there is nowhere for it to go in there that I could find. I took apart my magwell so I could paint the button separately but couldn't get any detailed pictures of how the parts went in because everything flew out after the screws were removed. I couldn't find any pictures online of magwell internals, but I tried every possible way I could think of to fit this piece in with no success. The magwell seems to work without it however, which leads me to believe its from the inside of the blaster somewhere. I haven't been able to find it in any pictures of rampage internals though, and honestly I don't have a clue where it would go. Can one of you more experienced modders help me identify this?

Right now the magwell is not attached to the gun which I suspect is causing the priming issue. But I want to know more about this piece first before I put it back on because detaching the magwell is a pain in the butt.
