**WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY!
Hello guys! Time for my 2nd write-up!
As you can see, this write-up is on the Nerf Splitfire.
Itís my favourite among all the Nerf blasters and itís tonnes of fun.
I had the intention of doing this mod to it but decided to go with something new, less bulky and cleaner.
This was what I came up with.
Iíll be going over 3 parts to this mod:
1) Rear-loading 2k turret Thanks to Ryan for his write-up
2) Integration of the turret to the Splitfire
Things you will need:
1) Nerf Splitfire
2) Air Tech 2000 Turret
3) PETG and brass
4) Super glue and plumbersí goop
5) Rubber washers
6) Dremel/hacksaw/power tools etc
8) Wax paper
And letís begin!
Part 1: Turret
Step 1: Take your 2k turret and open her up.
Step 2: Remove stock barrels. I was lucky and didnít have to use boiling water.
Step 3: Drill holes to fit your barrel material (Iíll be using PETG here)
In case you were wondering, I used a dremel for this. It takes patience and steady hands. It also helps that the outer walls fit PETG nicely. lol.
Step 4: Drill the same sized holes into the back piece of the turret in these positions.
*Keep the protruding thingy at the bottom of the turret (the part sticking out below the smaller crater below)
Step 5: This is what the original Ďrotation groove/mechí thingy (in the middle) looks like.
Make it look like this; a more square-ish shape, as opposed to circle-ish
Step 6: Cut your barrel material. I used 6 inches which what Iíve read is Ďoptimalí.
Step 7: If youíre painting your blaster (like me), you might want to do the paintjob first.
If not, proceed with this step. Goop the barrels into the turret. This is what Step 5 is for. As you can see the barrels are flush with the groove thingies, therefore you will have a problem with the rotation. If you cut down the thingy like I did, this will solve that problem.
Step 8: Super glue rubber washers onto turret, then sand the edges to get a larger ID. I donít have a picture for this, so I illustrated it on Paint.
Step 9: Optional. In Ryanís rear-loading 2k turret mod, he placed goop in the empty spaces. I skipped this. Instead, I left it empty. Basically the ID of the rubber washer is smaller than the diameter of the PETG, but the OD is larger. Something like this: therefore I didnít really see the need gluing the empty spaces. (I hope this part isnít confusing lol)
