How To Use One Trigger For Two Blasters?

03 October 2009 - 08:51 PM

I've seen this done a few times before where someone has used one handle and trigger to fire two blasters at once. The closest example of what I'd like to do that I could find was dim3's Maverick(s) as shown in the far right of this picture...

What I was hoping to do was use two Stormfire's to do something very similar. However, I wasn't sure where exactly to begin and as I only have two spare StF's lying around, doing an overly large amount of experimenting wasn't an option. For starters, I wasn't sure if I would have to use one of the two StF's handles as my single handle or if a LS frontgun handle would do the trick. Essentially, if anyone who has done this before could give me any pointers, that would be great. I attempted to search, but found nothing explaining how it should be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This isn't meant to be theoretical or speculative; just asking a question. Thanks!

Rf20 Problem

21 August 2009 - 09:51 AM

Yes I searched but found no one with this exact problem. I picked up one of those yellow and black RF20's from my local Target the other day and it works great other then that the single shot mode actually fires more like 3 darts. I'm not particularly beat up over it, I'm just curious as to if anyone else has had this problem and if so, if they know how to fix it. Thanks.

Question For Winter

19 August 2009 - 04:34 PM

First off, yes I searched. Now, as I've never been a pro at science, I thought someone might be able to better explain this. I was just pondering the thought of having a winter nerf war (outside of course). I live in Buffalo, NY so I'd probably be doing this at some point when it's hopefully not snowing and we have a couple of feet of snow on the ground. Before I do this, I would obviously want to know what effects this would have on our weaponry. I wouldn't be too worried about springers as long as they don't have any gaping holes in then but I didn't know if the contraction of air would have an adverse effect on air pumps. Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Basic Stormfire Mod & Ctf Description And Overview

23 July 2009 - 03:49 PM

The purpose of this is not to knock off Dizzy's Stormfire mod but rather to provide some insight into some of the more specific details of the Stormfire and the CTF unit that may not have been included in Dizzy's thread. The first post will cover the Stormfire itself while the following will cover the CTF unit and other accessories. Please don't post on my post until both posts are... err.. posted. I apologize ahead of time for the quality and size of a few of the pictures. With that being said, I introduce to you, the Stormfire Dart Tag Set.

We'll be working with the sexy "eye raping" green SF. Now, once you open this puppy up (18 screws that need to be removed), you'll get this...

Posted Image

Now, if you take the tube that the plunger is inserted through, you'll see this. Obviously a "wee" bit of air is being restricted.

Posted Image

From here, you need to remove the green barrel with the green connector piece from the white plunger tube. It's held together by this funky glue which came apart as shown after being held over a candle for a bit. Please be careful; I don't want anyone getting burnt on my behalf.

Posted Image

Now we're going to be working with the green piece we remove from the plunger tube.

Posted Image

From here, cut the piece off that connected the barrel to the plunger tube. Now using a dremel/file/scissors, shave off enough of the interior so that whatever type of barrel you are using will fit through. This is probably the most tedious part of the mod; which isn't really saying much.

Posted Image

Next, take the connector piece and reconnect it with the plunger tube and your new barrel giving you something like this...

Posted Image

Now, once again, you'll have to file/dremel/scissorify (verb form of scissor?) out the inside of the orange piece that goes on the front of your gun so that your barrel will fit through.

Posted Image

From this point, you have several options. You may choose to add some foam to silence the gun a bit (it needs it) or replace the spring or whatever else you can come up with. But basically, it will look like this when all together.

Here's a close up of the catch if you're curious...

And the gun altogether again.

Posted Image

Now, some size comparison.

Posted Image

Posted Image

The gun is approximately 29cm long.

Just a few notes... The SF is very light and has an excellent handle being larger then most guns that have come out recently. It, unfortunately, is very loud but's spring doesn't rattle like NF's sometimes do. In addition to the two main ammo slots, there is one right below the barrel and another in the handle much like the Recon. As predicted, it has an attachment rail on tome of the gun for all of your attachment needs.

As this is essentially a basic AR removal mod, I'm not going to give you ranges as they vary from person to person depending on their spring type, barrel and darts used. In comparison though, it performs very similarly to my NF's. Overall, I'm very happy with its performance thus far.

Part 1 is done, Part 2 will be finished in the next 20 minutes or so. Thank you for reading! Please hold all questions, comments or flames until Part 2 is done or may the evil gremlins of Nerf hunt you down, boil your internals, play racket ball with your head and make stylish necklaces with your various appendages.

Edit: So Banshee made a good point. For that, I took some measurements. With the 5 stock darts I fired at 30-45 Degree Angled shots (taggers if you're curious; used because everyone's familiar with them) I got...

Bear in mind these are with stock darts, with a stock spring. Overall, I'm rather satisfied with it.

Another At2k Leak

09 September 2008 - 08:57 PM

Hey guys. I just was at a Kohl's and found myself very lucky with a AT2K in my hands for just $5. I know it's nothing to special, but it's my first of its kind so I was pretty pumped. So I got home, opened it up, and tried it out. First of all, the pressure gauge went down at a quite unreasonable speed. Also, when I tried to fire it, it went barely 2ft (I understand that this is typical for new AT2Ks so I wasn't overly worried). So anywho, as planned I opened it up and did some basic AR removal business and then tried to locate the leak. At first, it seemed to be coming out in several places (I put it under water), most of which I patched up with hot glue. Finally, when I got all of those covered up, it was still leaking very quickly so I figured it had to be coming out of where the pin is that releases the air. So, my question is, is there a way to make sure that no excess air can get out of the tack prior to release? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
