In Topic: Rocket Racoon's blasters in vol. 2

Those look like Maverick plunger tubes on the front of that Nitefinder, too. Odd that they should use such a distinctively shaped Nerf blaster for this prop. Seems too obvious, I'd expect to see that level of work on someone's "steampunk" Etsy shop, not a big budget superhero film.

Captain Slug, that mag release reminds me a lot of Gavinfuzzy's Longshot trigger guard/mag release kit, but my god, the way it's connected to the trigger is beautifully elegant. Very well done, I'll be keeping an eye on how you end up making the magazines. I've been trying to find a way to make a cheap, mass-producible 1/2 length dart mag for months now, and this looks just like what I want. 


In Topic: Rapidstrike FCG Microswitch Bracket

The third switch allows for better cycle control. Your pusher will never stop half-extended or half-retracted like it does with a two-switch scheme if you're not careful. Two switches are fine for noobs or if you just want to dump mags, but if you want single shots or three round bursts without jams, then use a three switch setup with cycle control. Check out torukmakto4's blog for some better Rapidstrike wiring guides. Follow his standard Rapidstrike guide for something that will give you an idea of the advantages of a 3 switch build without having to build custom FCGs like this.

In Topic: Ace Silicone Grease?

19 January 2017 - 07:15 AM

I find that the thicker grease works better on blasters with skirt seals, and thinner silicone lubricants work better for floating o-rings. I have used the grease on o-rings, though, and it works just fine. Not optimal, but fine. It's better than not using lube, you can quote me on that.

I'm planning on going, maybe plus two more? Not sure, but I'm definitely gonna be there. It's great to see more Washington wars popping up recently, the local community is really growing!
