I personally say nothing with a tank that uses compressed air or CO2 that is not managed by a pump.
If it isn't pumped up or spring powered it is not allowed in my regard. I think it ruins the point of nerf and ends up pushing out into other fields such as airsoft and paintball. I think that, although every example is a cool mod, all the examples you listed should not be allowed.
I like this but I do not think it is clear enough to replicate. The mod seems very clean and professional but the write up leaves something to be desired.
I am confused as to how the clip goes in. Do you leave the breech open and then snap the clip into place over the brass? Is there anything that is required of the clip for it to do this or will a stock clip work? How stable is the clip in the side?
Questions aside, I think that the gun is pretty cool looking and I like how the bolt comes out on one side and the clip on the other, great job.
And to answer fandango's question, with RSCB clips the "cool" factor diminishes, it is also highly effective to carry around multiple LS clips and then just snap on a new one when the ammo well runs dry. I would say that an RSCB and this mod are about equal in efficiency.
Radio's gone now. He hasn't been on for months, and he stole my warthog. Editing peoples posts is annoying.
Nice mod though.
Oh really? I find that fascinating. Thank you for the update. And sorry about the obnoxiousness of it I sometimes have to do it to keep my sanity, I can be a bit of a grammar nazi occasionally.
And thank you for the compliment.
Also, the idea about the mav spring is actually a really great one and I shall initiate work on it soon. I thought about rubber bands as well but I extremely dislike non-permanent solutions. I also couldn't find a way to wrap the bands around the already cemented in place breech apparatus.
It seems that I have run into an issue that I am having a lot of trouble trying to repair. After being fired, the firing pin doesn't return to the close position, I think this may because of an obtrusion around the rod, or the extra weight added by the firing mechanism. If anyone has any suggestions they would be much appreciated.
Dude, haven't seen you in a while. How did you get unbanned after that mods/PJ thread incident? I always thought it was a bit dumb you were banned for that, as it was apparent that you were pretty into nerf at the time.
Anyways, looks nice. I also dislike the 2K shell. I just love turrets and the 2K shell works perfectly with them (made for one).
Well you see Tantum, I was banned after a prior incident I can disclose to you in PM form if you wish (due to it involving other members of the forum, one who has a signature of my ban) and the mods/PJ incident was a catalyst if anything. I waited out the ban and it ended back in march, so here I am.
And yes the 2k shell does work well with turrets, however if mounted properly, see my bbb, then it can be just as effective.
