Clear Shot/Stormfire: Seal Improvement & Spring Swap

13 March 2016 - 03:47 PM

So I had a Clear Shot, and it was terrible (read: Crap Shot). Anyway, I had a spare NF spring, a screwdriver. and a bit of teflon tape. Now it's much better.

 

Supplies

  • Cup to hold your screws
  • Nite Finder spring or the equivalent
  • Teflon tape
  • Philips Head Screwdriver
  • Table
  • Stormfire/Clear Shot

Step One

Lay the blaster on the table and start unscrewing the screws. (Note:They are of varying size, so be careful.)

There's a screw here:

and some hidden ones in the priming slide:

Once you have them all out, remove the one half of the shell.

 

Step Two

Remove the plunger rod assembly (the gray part with the spring on it):

Now, unscrew the plunger head from the plunger rod and take it apart. It should look like this:

Ignore that for a second.

Take your new spring out. Then, pull off the old spring and put the new one on in its place.

 

Go back to your plunger head. Take the bottom piece and wrap a bit of teflon tape around it, then replace the o-ring where it was:

Put everything back together and enjoy!

 

 

Ranges

N/A (I'll add ranges when the weather here is a bit nicer).


Rapidstrike battery upgrade questions

21 February 2016 - 06:42 PM

So, a friend family member fellow nerfer got his butt handed to him by yours truly with a stock Demolisher.

He wanted better full-auto, which leads naturally to LiPos.

 

A few questions before we go buy and install the batteries and unleash the beast upon an unsuspecting sister of mine wall:

 

1.Where would we buy the aforementioned LiPos (I prefer physical stores because we don't have to wait for shipping)?

2.What is the dart destruction rate (i.e. x/100 destroyed)?*

3.Is it just like installing regular batteries, or do we need to do other stuff?

 

 

Anyone who knows this, can you please say?

 

 

 

 

 

 

*And by destroyed I mean rendered completely unusable in any foam dart shooting blaster.
