In Topic: Bay Area Nerf War

I think we may do one at Gunn and one at JLS/Mitchell this summer. Me and my friends will organize the event, most likely. Stand by for more details, including rules, times, etc. If anyone has any suggestions, specifically what time during the summer to hold the war, please don't hold back.

That park does look quite cool, Catgod, but I doubt that I and us other north bay people could make it down to Palo Alto.

Maybe we should find a "midpoint" that all of us can access.

We could hold one in Palo Alto, and one in Berkeley, or something. What days of the summer are people going to be available?

However, if you have the cash to use a block of aircraft grade aluminum for just this, I will assume you have the money to make a full set of metal internals for a Razorbeast, Like Badger said he wanted to.

7075 aluminum isn't that expensive.

Slug is right, I just used box beam and sheet, so it was pretty cheap. Thom, thank you in advance for helping with the parts for the plunger head, I have been looking for the o rings or gasket or whatever for a while. Once I redid the spring and plunger head, I was going to finish up with this project and head on to a bigger gun, but if there's a lot of interest in such things, I could invest in making for more plungers for you guys.

I aplaud you on everything you did. EXCEPT the fact that you said you airsoft modified it. If you want an airsoft gun go buy an airsoft gun. Aside from that good job.

It's just a removable insert, you can pull it out and revert to nerf. By the way the 6mm barrel in the insert is also aluminum.

Also you can't add infinite rubber bands because the plastic cocking mechanism will get shredded by the aluminum, so the cocking mechanism needs to be replaced, too.
