Stormfire Modification

29 July 2009 - 05:44 PM

So ya, here's my first modification. I guess I had to get around contributing some time or later. This Modication is for the STF blaster, STORMFIRE. The plunger tube is wider, and shorter than an NF plunger tube to my analysis. Never the less, the blaster seems to be achieving fantastic ranges, which makes me love these blasters more and more.

  • Hotglue
  • Sharp Scissors
  • 4" of PETG
  • 3~ of dowel*
  • Etape
  • Screwdriver
  • Ace #49 / Everbilt 4" x 7/8" x .080"
  • Dremel
  • Danco #9 O-ring
  • NF/Switchshot O-ring
  • Goop
  • Superglue
  • 1 Stormfire
  • Flat File
  • (Needle) Pliers
  • Silicone Spray/Grease
  • Safety Glasses
  • Ruler
  • Hacksaw
Alright, here is your Stormfire Blaster. Ranges are low at stock, but it has some awesome stuff to it. The handle is huge. It has 4 ammo holders. No protruding parts or stuff sticking out. This is my kinda' blaster.

Start off by unscrewing the blaster. There's about 18 screws!

When you take off the shell, most likely the catch spring will pop right at you or somewhere across the room. In my case, I was very lucky and it stood still. For further investigation, here's what it looks like. Its very small and skinny, be careful!

Now that challenge is done, here's what the internals look like.

Plunger Modification
Take out the plunger tube, we're going to start here.

Now, unscrew the plunger head. This is a typical Nitefinder head, simple and strong.

Now take off that wimpy spring. That thing is ridiculously weak!

Here is our Everbilt spring. You're going to have to cut it down so it fits in the shell.

Now, we're going to increase the seal. I took a Switchshot O-ring to improve the seal. It's incredible how much it improved, I'm sure some etape under that would be overkill.

If you want to shoot stefans, we have to cut the original barrel off. Not too hard, but you're going to need a hacksaw or a dremel. This is where you want to cut-

Big Bad Bow Problems

26 April 2009 - 10:07 PM

So, I just modded my BBB, and here's what I've done to it:
  • +bow spring
  • Washer head reinforcement
  • Brass barrel
  • Cleared dead space
  • Coupler'd

Now, here's whats going on: I prime the blaster, sounds safe and good. I press the trigger, and the plunger is released, causing the head to spring forward. It SOUNDS like it would work, but again and again, the dart does NOT leave the barrel. I put in a dart made for CPVC in it, same problem. Tight, loose, perfect, the dart will not leave the barrel.

I tried to produce some pictures and whatnot to help the situation, because I know how much you guys love pictures.

Glow In The Dark Paint

25 February 2009 - 06:02 PM

Howdy everybody! I just came across a brand of Glow in the Dark Spray Paint. It sounded interesting to me, but before I purchase 10$ worth of any paint, I would like some opinions. Has anyone here EVER used/dealt with ANY kind of glow in the dark spray paint? Thanks in advance!

Mcmaster Carr Foam

12 February 2009 - 06:40 PM

OK....So I've been contemplating about buying a well foam for PETG/9/16" brass. Mod Man's foam came up...I've gotten no responses from him. Mile High foam came up...REJECTED. Loghome Foam also came up...Inconsistent. Then, a new foam came to mind.

Mcmaster foam came to me as a mystery, and still is. I want to ask a few questions, as I know Captain Slug use/d it at one time. *Please, I don't want to hear from people who have never touched it, but like always, comments are accepted*
