Yeah I'm not a big fan of the motorized guns, they always manage to have spectacular jams. But if you can make it a manual prime and fire, then it could be the maverick's cooler older brother that's much easier to reload.

...not sure why you would put a stock on a pistol though

In Topic: Pump-action Crossbow

I like to think that the cocking slide, shown in three of the four images in the first post, which draws the string and plunger rod back to the catching point, would be what qualifies this as pump-action.

Oh, and in case the pictures weren't enough, reading the words helps too:

The pump grip merely pushes back the nylon bow string, until the catches, obviously. I'll probably add a return spring for the pump later.

And yes, he typically runs this with a hopper. In fact, he has probably never actually Nerf'd with it with any setup other than a hopper.

Excuse me, I'll go get you a tampon. I assumed pump-action meant something along the lines of the slam firing in raiders or alpha-troopers, not the same priming action used in a nite finder. And none of the pictures suggested the use of a hopper, nor did any of the words.

In any case, it's a pretty nice looking bow. Will the constant stress on the nylon stretch it out eventually, or do you have an easy way of unstringing it when not in use?

So what makes it pump-action? Do you have a hopper addition?

In Topic: Alpha Trooper Air Restrictor Removal

07 September 2010 - 07:42 PM

i cant see that working with this blaster because as far as i can there isnt any glue, but i might be mistaken and it might work, i just bashed it out with a screw driver haha, if you try it be sure to let me know

I attempted using boiling water to disassemble the AR, but I made the mistake of resting the barrel on the edge of the pot, so I stopped trying once I noticed that the plastic was beginning to melt. The five minutes that it was in the water didn't do anything to loosen up the glue though, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Quick question. Has anyone found a good spring replacement for this gun?

A mod video on youtube () says that the spring from the ERTL rapid fire shotgun works well.

I know the most effective ways to remove air restrictors are to drill them out or use pipe cutters to cut the assembly apart, but I'm at college with no access to a drill or pipe cutters. I modded a nite finder using the method of sticking the assembly in a pot of boiling water to melt the glue and it worked pretty well; would this method work on the alpha trooper (or raider or recon)? I've also seen people recommend on a few threads using zippo lighter fluid to dissolve the glue, but haven't seen anyone confirm this working. So what would be the verdict on ghetto AR removal?
