hm. interesting. shadow's cf got at least 40' at a slight (see: 10 degree) angle. just drive right through the barrel to get the restrictors out. works like a charm.

bite me, we're arguing over a couple of words. not that big of a deal, no need to start something here


OMFG (sorry that the rules were posted above, but some things shouldn't be said in full) shadow, the rules were stated, if you don't respect them, don't make posts on this site. ompa is the person that enforces rules. he was made admin for that purpose. in your defense, at least you tried to end the argument:

no need to start something here


some lessons need to be learned. I'm sorry to be harsh, but you're capable of following the basic rules. also, DON'T START FIGHTS WITH A SITE ADMIN. anyone who does should be suspended, for at least a month. I reallize that I am a newb, both in this site (less than 1/2 year), and in nerf, but ompa is just trying to keep order, and you, I, and everyone else should respect that.

old topic. nice mod. I'd like to see a link to the original dollar store gun.

I saw his first demo, and it shot about 80'. the bottle was 20 oz. I think. either that or 24 oz. I was amazed by this. accuracy is potentially high, if you hold the pvc steady, and get used to how it fires. although air delivery is slow, it is a huge amount of air, so like nero said, you could shotgun it easily.

sniper25, that is brilliant. I just reallized what kind of bottle that is, and you're right. you'd have to get really big ones though. that or have pits steel to get the kind of air flow and air velocity needed to accelerate the dart for high ranges. also, because the dish soap bottles reinflate, they produce suction, thus pulling darts into the back of the barrel when you load them. that would decrease reloading time a lot.

although it would look awsome ompa, I think it would be a bit cumbersome to carry a lot of these. 10 of these would take up a huge amount of space.

In Topic: New (i Think) Holster

Since people are talking about alternatives to the clip, a strap with velcro would be the fastest for both removal (riiiiiip) and putting back. I like that clip, though...no chance that's coming undone. Good job.


I made a holster for someone a month ago and he wanted a velcro strap. It worked pretty well, I just hope the glue holds it down even after constant abuse.


ya. velcro is the most practical for this. and its probably the cheapest solution too. it can be found at any hobby store, hardware store, and probably elsewhere.

as far as making a holster rigid enough to keep form, I make holsters out of duct tape, and put index cards in between layers. I generally use about 3-6 cards total. I did this for my ttb, and it worked out amazing. it also has a slimmer profile than blackwrath's style, and by putting a little fbr inside, retaining straps aren't necessary. I love index cards (3x5, BTW) for their balance of strength and flexibillity. my design came from a month's worth of observation of a BW holster. I'm going to add a few more index cards to mine, to total 6 or 7, wrap it in hokey tape, and make it clip onto my belt, or clip onto my pants leg. (if it rests in a pant leg, I make sure to have a tightenable strap, and a deep cargo pocket for the holster to rest in.)

I hope this has been helpful. it works for me!

I tried that a bunch of times. I'm going to continue doing so, and hope that you're right. by the way, the divider is purple on mine. the seal is surprisingly good , now that I look at it. it's too bad that so much air is wasted. it probably gets 2/3 the range that an rf20 can get because of it.

edit: I tried that again, and it didn't help much at all. but I didn't reallize that the winglets weren't lining up...
its still broken, and the chamber that holds the valve spring isn't moving forward very much when I pull the trigger. the valve doesn't close and the chambers aren't being advanced. I never opened up the gun before it stopeed working, and I have no idea what happened or what to do.

again, what do I do?
