Optimum deadspace removal in the bolt for pusher breeches?

17 June 2017 - 04:20 AM

I couldnt find this answer anywhere, so I thought I might ask if anyone has documented data on the optimum diameter to let air through in the bolts of pusher breeches. I have a brass retaliator with a simple breech, and I noticed that adding a few layers of tape to fill into the space before the dart (i.e. the bolt) to kill some of that unused deadspace increased my ranges very marginally. Obviously adding too much, and you constrict your airflow leading to your chamber like a coffee straw. It therefore follows that there must be an optimum amount of deadspace to fill in. Can anyone comment on what they've done with their builds?

Has anyone tried ordering bulk elite tips?

I don't know if this has been asked yet, has there been any attempts to get elite tips in bulk? I have all this loose foam leftover, and I want official tips put on them.

Bulk order cored out foam for darts?

18 November 2014 - 06:51 AM

I was wondering if anyone found a feasible way to get bulk brightly colored foam for making darts. We have a bunch of elite heads that I want to stick back onto darts, but not enough loose foam. Is there a company or seller that sells cheap elite foam and just the foam?

(I suspect this will come up at some point too so I'll mention it now: we tend to have stock wars, so we ban slugs and stefans. I also need foam to be cored for compatibility with stock blasters, and it's impractical to do so manually with Swift foam.)

Has anyone figured out the best way to seal slits in Elite darts?

08 November 2014 - 06:53 PM

So I know many of you have probably run into this problem countless times, but I've never been able to figure out a way to seal the slit hole properly. I know how this happens, as air ends up rupturing the side as a means to escape. Just don't know the best way to fix it.

I've tried wood glue and super glue, but that just ends up being really brittle and breaks apart over use. Hot glue disbalances the dart and melts the foam too much. What's the best solutions?

Other details:
I'm not looking to fill them because blasters in our community uses dart pegs.
