This is a project I started concept art for in 2019, but never actually started work on until May of this year.

 

This blaster works via a front-primed plunger tube & plunger, with a bent barrel and sealed end that redirects air to shoot out of the stock 1995 Crossbow's barrel area. I used a widened Kronos catch with a 2nd catch spring, and a lever/linkage bar system to activate the catch. The linkage bar goes back to a polycarb trigger.

 

This blaster is getting ~150 fps out of an 8 inch CPVC barrel with 2/3 of a [k25].

 

If (when) I do this mod again, I will most likely use a Rainbow catch to use a [k26], perhaps a wider plunger tube, and probably integrate a brass breech onto the top (maybe with a 3d printed cover/casing/spacer?) instead of just a 1/2in PVC/CPVC coupler.


NerfHaven logo font?

09 February 2020 - 08:27 PM

I was wondering, what is the font used for the NH logo? I presume it is a font and not custom made, as the 2015 mod contest had a custom "banner" in the same font.

 

Edit: For those who are googling and this comes up, the font is Arcade, italic to make the logo slant.


The History of Nerf Modding archival project

04 May 2019 - 08:26 PM

Hello!

I am Silly, and I am one of the staff on the History of Nerf Modding team. 

We are building an archive (initially on discord, then uploading to Google drive periodically, with a website possibly coming in the future), and then turning portions of that into in-depth history and information videos.

This is inclusive of tracking major games, game types, and other modding adjacent activities of the community. 

We are especially looking for long time Nerfers who were participating in the Nerf scene any time from 1989 to 2012, which is why I am posing here on Nerf Haven. Any small thing will help to paint a larger picture, so even if you have a faint memory, please write it down and send it to us!

We will have questions and need for photos and videos over the next few months, so if you want to be a contact we can reach out to, let me know in a reply to this post, or by telling us on our Discord.

Speaking of Discord, here is a link to our Discord. https://discord.gg/zt5uBsR Join in, if you’d like!

Thank you for reading and helping out!


Stampede drill motor Questions

20 September 2017 - 10:50 AM

Hello again NH,

Recently, I found a nice old drill in goodwill without a handle, so I bought it for the motor. It is a motor from a craftsman 12v drill. My thoughts immediately went to cramming the fudger into a stampede. Sure, it would look like the stampede had a tumor, but it would fire faster/harder then the normal motor.

So I did some research to find specs on the motor. I couldn't find the drill online, the motor specs, or any information other then a sold out battery supposedly for the drill on sears.com. So.

I looked at stampede replacement motors. I found this thread/post on the Nerf sub Reddit ( https://www.reddit.c...KUN&sh=0d4c2375) and I have in the past made a NH topic on stampede replacement motors.

But I found no documentation of anyone using a drill motor in a stampede. So that's what I'm asking about here. Does anyone know or suspect any major problems (other then reinforcement and gearbox stuff) with this project? Would a 12v drill motor be able to meet the stampede's requirements for function?

Thanks,
Silly

Edit: This post will also be posted on Reddit for more people to be able to answer.

Replacement stampede motor?

21 July 2017 - 08:45 AM

So, I'm not dead!

Anyway... I looked up replacement stampede motors, and all that showed up was a 2013 thread recommending that you use airsoft high torque motors (that cost about as much as a stampede)

So since it's been 4 or so years now, I was wondering if anyone knows of any cheaper replacement stampede motors?
( I mean aftermarket motors, not a motor from another stampede.)

Thanks in advance,
Silly.
