Big Salvo/smdtg/maverick Integration Problem

20 March 2010 - 01:32 PM

Here's my design:

There are no leaks and the Big salvo tanks shoot fine (actually, with just a stefan shoved down the barrel, it breaks 70') , however the SMDT tanks only shoot about 3 inches-5 feet. I pump the gun a good 20 times, so what is the problem?\

Tsbno Recap

17 March 2010 - 11:37 PM

Well, it's 11:28 after the war, I just got home to Austin, and you know what that means!


  • It was a nerf war.
  • I repped off taz and traded a polyester breech for a BS tank
  • My NF rifle kicks ass.
  • Fatnerfer had a pretty beast BBB
  • My stefans not melting because the weather was awesome!
  • none of my guns broke
  • we got in a shit ton of rounds
  • We didn't have a ton of people
  • No doomsayers
  • I broke a shit ton of darts on the concrete
  • people left early
  • We didn't have very many people (about as many people dropped out as came. Had to be on Wednesday my ass.)
  • No doomsayers
Meh. Daft was better.

Dart Tag Blaster Overhaul

Dart Tag Blaster Overhaul

By Wing’d man

I have the following goals for this modification:
1. Larger plunger tube
2. Better turret seal
3. Better turret rotation
4. AT2K integration more suited to me
5. A good contest entry ;D

Credit goes to the following people:
Angel for his angel eye's AT2K pump, which inspired me to do this pump placement.
KingBouyah for his drawback extension, shown here
(Hope he doesn't mind me borrowing his pic.s)
Cappoid for the AT2K

Onto the Actual modification:
Barrel material
Amazing goop
JB weld/Epoxy
#8 washer. The stuff you make stefans with.
1-1/4" OD x 3/16" ID Neoprene washer
#10 SAE washer
Key ring
recon light
Vinyl tubing
1" class 200 PVC (thinwall)
1/8" Polycarbonate
8 6-32 machine screws/bolts
lube (for pump)
PVC coupling

Pipe cutters (for cutting pump)
Cutting tools of choice (optional, just makes things less of a hassle)

In order to break up the process, I’ll make this into steps:

STEP 1- Larger air output

That plunger tube is smaller than a NF plunger tube, it maxes out at ~50’ This will replace it with a plunger tube 2/3 the size of Daedalus (http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=16908).

Cut off the very front of the stock plunger tube, just the plastic in the front, you should have a disk with a rimmed hole in it. Epoxy this to the front of a piece of 1” class 200 (or thin wall) PVC. Cut this piece to about 3”. There should be some space between the back of the plunger tube and that part of the shell that the spring pushes up against. This is good. Next Dremel, using your sanding bit, the parts of the shell that hold the plunger tube so that the PVC fits into it nicely. Make sure the PVC is centered on the plunger rod.

You shouldn’t dremel the part that the part that seals with the turret rests on. That was from a different project that I didn’t end up doing. (Doh!)

The plunger head should be a washer sandwich. Like so:
#8 washer. The stuff you make stefans with.
1-1/4" OD x 3/16" ID Neoprene washer
#10 SAE washer
I used a cut down Tech Target rod for my plunger rod- it has the EXACT same dimensions in size, notch placement, notch shape, and it is much sturdier. If you insist on sticking with the stock one, use the technique featured here: http://nerfhaven.com...ad bow overhaul.

One more thing:
Cut your plunger rod like so:

I recommend making cuts like so:

And popping out the pieces.
Next simply fill the first one with putty, don’t forget to sand, clean, and mix well!

Note: If you are going to stick with the stock slide you have to cut down the slide and the hole it slides through, I am not including this as I am changing the priming mechanism.
Note2: For clearer ways on how to do Note1, and just because I should give credit, refer to this: http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=15451

Fan Fiction War

17 March 2009 - 09:44 AM

I was wondering if anybody would be interested in a war with several rounds where you can only use a fan-fiction gun? There are quite a bit of modifications, ranging from extremely hard (slow-guitar-man's lancer) to quite easy (a schemed paint-job).

Even if people are interested, I still have to find people who live in central-ish TX, but anybody else is welcome to the idea.
